Is the pixelated screen issue caused by a faulty screen or a hardware fault elsewhere and would it be possible to swap the screen from my runner 2 into my golfer?

    The pixelated screen is likely a bad screen try a factory reset and if that does not fix it there is your answer. You cannot swap screens, they are not replaceable and the runner has a different size screen than the golfer. TT does not offer a repair service and that product was discontinued years ago (TT Sports went out of business almost 3 years ago). There are plenty of brands out there with better feature sets for less money these days.

    Just an update, I swapped the inside of my golfer 2 into my runner 2 (which I bought for £15) just 4 screws keeping the circuit boards in place and my golfer 2 is now back from the dead and the screen image is perfect on every screen. It was really easy to do just need some micro/watch screwdrivers.
    Hope this helps my fellow golfers.

    Nice fix, glad it worked. I would not necessarily recommend it for people without some technical savvy though as it is very easy to mess up the watch when you dismantle it.
