Does anybody do It in a fenix 5?

Fernando Alcaraz - Replica

Thank you. It saved me around over £100 to change the battery myself. Garmin quoted around £121 for battery replacement for out of warranty watch. I bought the battery around £15 and followed the guide to change the battery myself in my Fenix 3 watch. My watch does not have heart rate monitor, perhaps the ribon at step 5 is for HR monitor as I didn’t have it in my watch. Thanks again for simple, detailed and easy to follow instructions.

Where did you get the battery?

Howdy,

Followed all your steps but now the new battery will not charge. Could I have missed something in replacing the battery somehow? Pins not making contact or so?

I’ve just followed these steps, and with £4.50 for a precision torx set, and £14.50 for a battery that came the next day by UPS, it’s saved me loads. The couple of things I would add are - you can use double sided tape to attached the new battery, and buy a battery with the connector already attached unless you are an electrician it saves the fuss, and make sure the connector is fully in place, it’s easy for it to be marginally out and you’ll get no power.

thanks!
