Oh no!

Had a bit of a scare there. I went out for a run today and when I went to turn on my Garmin....nothing. I mean NOTHING happened. Blank screen and I had checked it last night and made sure it was charging.

I tried the power.
I tried the lap/reset button.
I tried plugging it back in to the wall.
I tried plugging it into my computer.


This went on for about 10 minutes. Then all of a sudden it came back to life. PHEW! I was getting really scared there....and I have never had any problems with it before. I ended up running 7.5 miles and the battery is charged, luckily there were no other problems. Maybe it was just playing tricks on me?? Not funny at all.

Off to finish packing then moving tomorrow. Happy running and Memorial Day weekend!


  1. I'm glad your Garmin is back alive! I ran out of battery once during a run and it was awful. It's crazy how used you get to the Garmin! Good luck on your move!

  2. Phew. What a relief. I ran once without checking to see if I have enough battery juice. It went dead on me halfway through my run and I was totally bummed and felt so disappointed after that.

  3. That happened to me.. URGH!! Such a scary feeling..

  4. Hi Sarah,
    Yea, if my Garmin did that it would of scared the crap out of me:) Luckily I have not had any issues with mine other than a few times it took forever to find the satellite. I am glad everything is working!

  5. Yikes! Glad it started working again. Grumpy Garmin!

  6. Glad to hear it is working now!!!
