Hi Captain Engel, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I understand - if I do understand - that you have contacted Garmin.
But, have you sent the watches to them?
How old are the watches? measured from their date of purchase.
You are stationed in the Middle East, so there are no repair facilities for Garmin watches at hand, obviously.
Give me a few more details on what has happened so far, and I'll try to advise you as to what to do. Thanks.
