Anyone had experience replacing a garmin forerunner screen. My 235 is cracked.

 

Is the garmin workshop your only option? What is the cost normally?

 

Anyone tried importing one and fitting it yourself?

From my experience with Garmin over multiple queries over the years (and one in Jan this year), they are very quick to assess. Has never taken more than 3 days.

 

I would consider sending it in.

 

They also tend to charge around R1800 for many different types of repairs. I doubt your screen replacement will be less than that. So maybe consider that point before you send it in.

 

If you're based in Jhb and can walk it in, that's better.

Hardly economical is it.. Probably easier to just upgrade.

Garmin SA wanted to charge me R3600 for a replacement Fenix 5x as my current 5x's barometer is broken. 

What kills me is on alixpress the official garmin back cover of the watch with a new barometer and hr sensor is 22 dollars. Garmin SA does not repair the watch only replace.

 

My watch is 3 years old, but still, when you spend over R11k for watch and a standard feature can't even last 3 years and you then are asked to pay in another R3600, leaves a very bad taste in the mouth.

Knocked my Garmin Forerunner 55 against a wall, the screen has a small crack, anyone knows how much Garmin will charge me for a replacement screen and how long would it take for me to receive the watch from them, thank you
