Title: Garmin Forerunner 610

FAO: Anybody who owns a Garmin Forerunner 610

I have recently sent mine back to Garmin to be replaced because after just 6 months the back of the watch started to corrode and turn my wrist green!! I wiped it with a cotton bud so you can see the green stuff!


After a quick phone call to Garmin, it turns out that this is a known issue, and they were happy to replace it for a new one.

I sent the old one back, and 4 days later a new one arrived. The new watches now have a plastic back rather then the faulty metal one, so this one wont corrode, and you also get the added bonus that the new one is also a bit lighter!


So if you have got this model of watch, check the back. If there are any signs of corrosion, then get it swapped out sooner ASAP, as it will only get worse.
