Garmin foretrex 301 will not power up


Replace it. I think the battery is dead and unless you are up for cracking open the case it is done done for... You can always try a mast rest first though... Just google that one.

The battery on my 201 forerunner is only lasting 5-6 hrs, how do I change batteries and is it worth it. Cheers Tom


Hello,

It is actually meant to last for 15 hour per charge, and it lasting just 5-6 hours simply means it is either not fully charged or the battery is weak.

It uses a lithium ion rechargeable battery, and it can be replaced, you will have to open it up to be able to locate the battery.

If you are not familiar with such activities, i will strongly advice you get a repairman replace the battery for you.

Since taking a walk with it wont take up to 5-6 hours, it will be best you leave it that way, and try to recharge as soon as it drops, but if you use it for over that amount of time in a day then you can replace it. the battery is located right underneath the wrist band used in strapping the hand.

Take care

Water inside Garmin, so no display.


This was recommended by Coopers4508 under the Forerunner 201 thread, and it worked equally well for my Foretrex 101.
As Coops said:
I know it sounds crazy, but worked without damage. Placed the forerunner in a table vice (long end to end) and gently applied pressure, opened right up.
It worked perfect for me - just be sure to compress slowly and listen for the separation of the centre seam. A very tidy solution.
