Have owned this for maybe 2 years? Didn't use it at alllast year. Tried charging it up today and it won't even charge. Cleaned the contacts on the watch and charger and still no go. <br />
<br />
Anyone else have this issue? Waiting to hear back from Bushnell. <br />
<br />
Kinda makes me wonder if I should bother getting another gos watch if the internal battery will only last two years. <br />

    I am having this EXACT same issue. I charged it over night. Cleaned the connections. Charged it again overnight. Tried plugging in to an outlet to charge overnight. I tried plugging into my laptop for 6hours while at work to charge. Nothing works. Let me know what you find out.

    I called Bushnell and talked to a guy who said it sounds like a cord issue. He had me plug it into my computer and an outlet while on the phone with him and nothing happened. The cords are out of stock and should be in August 13th according to him.<br />
    <br />
    AFTER I spoke with him and he said it was a cord issue, I cleaned the usb end (which I hadn't before) and plugged it in. As of right now, the watch IS charging. Just thought you should know.

    Thanks for the update. For me, I think the cord is working because when I connect the watch, my computer makes a beep noise to signify that a USB device has been connected.<br />
    <br />
    I also called Bushnell and they explained that I would need to send it in a pay for the repair. Kinda sucks that the watch is broken after 2 years of literally 5 rounds of use.

    I too had same issue. I knew it wasn’t the chord because computer would recognize watch. I held all the buttons at once, “usb mode” appeared. Did it again and it said to check something then it started charging. Hope this helps.

    When I first got mine I had similar issues. I pushed the lower right button, got some message about the “bin” or something, and then the watch charged. Have the issue when the battery is drained.

    Press bottom right hand button if not charging. It performs some type of reboot and starts charging.

    Used watch on Friday. Thought it was fully charged from night before. Picked up watch today Sunday and saw it had a blank screen. WTH. Plugged in charger and nothing.

    Before finding your site, I managed to bring it back to life my pushing all buttons at same time. So, now I see that only lower right needed to be pushed and held to bring it

    back to life. But still no charging when plugged in. Nothing from PC when connected there. Hmm. Now finding your posting, a tip to clean the USB end of cord. How?

    Then it hit me. Take a closer look at the contacts on the watch. The first one looked dull. I cleaned it with an eraser end of pencil, then a little scraping with a small metal screwdriver.

    Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner!! Now it's charging again. I suspect over time, sweat and dirt, gums up the contact, since it's directly touching the skin. That's my story.

    My contacts on watch was dirty. Cleaned, now charging again. If screen is blank from a very low battery, holding the lower right button for a second or two, will bring screen back.
