I’ve had my Sport watch for golf for 5 months. I bought it new. All of a sudden and mostly in GPS mode the screen goes blank intermittently and also sometimes with stripes. I have done a reset but it doesn’t help

    Where did you buy it since TT Sports went out of business over 3 years ago and ceased all production? All products were removed from shelves years ago and are obsolete. It sounds like you have a bad display. You can try a factory reset and see if that will help, but it may not. Your best bet is to go back to wherever you bought it and get a refund as you bought a long dead product.

    Just to let you know I fixed my pixelated screen by swapping 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.
