Garmin 50 forerunner failure

    Do you think it maybe a problem with the lithium battery?

    Getting message on my Garmin Forerunnr 205 "memory full". When I press enter I see the full screen again but mid run memory full message comes again. Pressing enter takes care of it but every time I use the 205 (every day) the same thing happens. I've had the 205 about 10 years and have used it every run.

It sounds to me as you are having the problem with faulty contacts. They should be cleaned and checked for stiffness- if too weak must be replaced.
The next possible cause can be integrated circuit (IC) failure. In this case only skilled watchmaker can help you and that gonna be costly.

I have had my garmin forerunner 205 since end of May 2010. It recently started taking longer than normal to find satelites. On my last run it came up as saying battery low when I had only just charged and...


You need to contact Garmin and have them replace or repair the watch. If the watch is less than a year old, it will be under warranty. Older than a year it may be a repair or replace only situation, Garmin will have to determine that. It is not unusual for the forerunner series to have rechargeable batteries that die off.

You may need completely reset your device, but as the very first step I'd advise to check compatibility with Windows Vista.

Battery Life: I have had my Garmin Forerunner 50 for only 3 months and the 2nd battery is already dead. Normal?


There is a fault with Forerunner 50's - I replaced my battery three weeks ago, after three months of average use. It posted the "LoBatt" sign again the following day. Garmin offered to replace it with an overhauled product but I've gone for a refund instead.

Can`t pair Garmin Forerunner 50 with footpod


Hi,

I've been having the same problem. I couldn't pair my footpod, but my heart rate monitor was working. I've only had the 50 for about eight weeks.

I reset the watch, holding view mode and Start/Stop at the same time.
This didn't do any good.

I swapped the battery in the HRM with that in the foot pod. The foot pod synched the HRM didn't.

Solution duff battery. I'd change yours it will probably do the trick.

Hope it helps
