Customer Question

I have Garmin S3 - 2L4036170 - Golf watch. It won't recharge. Maybe the charger is bad?
How can I test charger? Buy replacement?

Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,
Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of this issue you are having.
May I ask:
1) the AGE of the watch, and WHEN this issue first began?
2) WHEN the watch was LAST used (successfully)?
3) What "charger" are you using for the device? Is it the ORIGINAL "home AC charger" that came in the package?

Hi again,
I see it has been a few days and I just wanted to follow up to see if you have any more questions concerning this issue or if the issue was resolved.
NOTE: The most common issue with a device of this type not charging (assuming battery is still good) is the CONTACTS of the device get "dirty" (sweat film really) and need to be cleaned with alcohol and a cotton bud (Q-tip).
I look forward to any further questions or results that you may have.
Thanks, ***** *****
