The Year of the Monkey
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
l and my high-quality sweat did it in.

My Forerunner 305 died after 15 months of excellent service. Two days of seizing and now it is just dead. There is what appears to be a water bubble in the LCD. I guess it could not take the intense heat and humidity, but methinks that after all this time it finally lost its waterproof seal and my high-quality sweat did it in.
Call to Garmin later today. But I'm thinking I will need to replace it on my own dime.

Needs more cowbell!
Thanks to your warning and others that I've heard with the same problem, I always wear mine in the shower with me after my runs to make sure I rinse off the sweat, and occasionally put some vasoline around the seal.
• Do some dus...and some CX...and some tandem gravel...and some podiums...
• 130#s (or less)
• Stop letting my core go to hell
Repair for ~$100 or replace for ~$150.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Modified to add: does anyone else have the problem of the little metal connectors on the back getting corroded/turning black? It seems to happen to one of thos little guys more than the others and sometimes I have trouble synching using the cradel/serial cable. It takes a few tries and I have to connect and un-connect things a couple times (I think because it's not making a solid connection?)
... A new one costs as little as $190 over the web, with anothe $8 shipping. And there is a $50 rebate right now.
