So, you know how I was RAVING about my Garmin? Well I was RAGING on Wednesday night when I got in after spin to find that the screen was blank and no amount of charging/button-pushing/yelling made up swear words would bring it to life.
The next day I went in to Run4it, where I had bought it just over 1 month before, and explained what had happened. Luckily they had one left in stock, so once I’d brought in all the components/chargers and a proof of purchase, I was briskly walking to my spin class with a new Garmin in my rucksack, ready to open when I got home.
And you know what? My problem with the fiddly USB connection that I cited as the only complaint I had about the Garmin in the first place? Not even an issue. It looks like I got a faulty watch, as it had not properly saved a couple of my workouts (in addition to the wobbly power connector), and I am more satisfied with the replacement one than a broke hooker with blow in Charlie Sheen’s neighbourhood.
I lost all my workouts for the last week though, so that’s a bit of a bummer.
