Customer Question

I have a Garmin Forerunner 305 that I have used for years while training for and walking in the Susan G. Komen 60 mile 3 Day event. This year I am experiencing some thing new from my Garmin. It will run out of battery at the 1-2 hour mark during training. Can I replace the battery is so how? If not can I send it away to have the battery replaced and get it back before September 13, 2015?

Garmin no longer provides support for the Forerunner 305.

I can type out the instructions, but i will give you a link to a video which contains detailed instructions on carefully opening the device, replacing the battery and how to close your device.
