From my experiences with Garmin, their warranty WILL NOT cover the usual wear and tear, such as falling or if you put the device on a counter and it falls, causing the screen to shatter.  They want you to send it in and pay a fee of $130 to get a new one and they cannot state that the same thing won’t happen again, just as easily.  This is too bad given their reputation for navigation.  A sports device should at least tolerate usual wear and tear, plus the potential impacts associated with the sports its made for!  If you can’t back that, then you probably don’t have a good product.
