Suddenly, my Garmin Forerunner 305 did not respond as I pressed the Power Button yesterday morning after charging it the night before. I took me some time to figure out what was wrong with my Garmin. I was sad and frustrated to see my GF 305 was not working after my daughter brought it here in the country from the USA last February of this year. Instead of having my running workout, I opted to go to the gym and had my supplementary weight training.
Last night, I remember what Mark FB suggested to me in one of his comments about having a link with www.motionbased.com and visit the Forum section for any problems with the use of the Garmin Watch. That was what I did and I read questions among Garmin users on problems they encounter with their watches. Such problems are being answered by other users who had experienced such problems with their watches.
I was glad that there were users in the said forum who experienced the same problem with my Garmin. One post suggested to press the Mode and Lap Buttons at the same time, holding it for a few seconds. That was what I did while my GF 305 was connected to my laptop’s USB port. And suddenly, my watch responded and the watch dial displayed that my watch was on “charging” mode. It felt good that my GF 305 is working again.
To all the runners who are using Garmin Forerunner, it is suggested that you visit the Forum section of the abovementioned website to find out more about your watch and acquire solutions to problems you encounter with your Garmin Watch.
To Mark FB, thanks for the “tip”.
