I have not even reached 2 years worth of use of my mutltisport watch and its dead. I know it's outside the warranty but I have never had any Polar devices die within 5 years of purchase , they became obsolete when the architecture change in computers and thats what I expect when paying hundreds of dollars for a device; Not something which just gets through the basic warranty period and then fails because it actually is not suited to being in water which is the whole reason i selected the watch, to do triathlons. Now its mid triathlon season and my watch just died after a measley 20 minute training swim at the beach. I did not push buttons while underwater,there is no reason to do that is there. End of part 1
Part 2 the pathetic response from tom toms "support" team was absurd. I'll simply paste it here…. BTW coincidently my partner's tom tom watch died at exactly the same time as we were swimming together any way here is the official response

Apologies for the trouble, seems there is water damage to your watch. As your watch is out of warranty we can not book it for repairs.

    Same here. But in my watch only the HRM failed; and after a software update. They proposed me to buy a new watch for the discounted price of 85EUR.
