I have to return my Garmin Fenix 3 for inspection/repair due to ridiculous battery drain issues.

 

The place I have to send it is in Australia not NZ. Do I have to pay for that shipping or is that part of the claim?

If they don't have a local supplier or repair agent then I would suggest it would be at their cost.

Did you buy it from a NZ retailer? If so, just take it back to the NZ retailer to then send on.  

 

Just a word of warning, if they say 'send it back to us and we will reimburse you for the shipping fees', don't do it. I have just been through this, and the shipping fees were high, and the retailer said they were too high and would only reimburse me up to a certain figure which was half of the cost. Eventually they reimbursed me the full figure, but it wasn't worth the hassle. Ideally ask them to send you a courier pack for sending it back in.

I could have done that I guess although that would have necessitated a 160km round trip to Wellington.

 

I sent it tracked courier and it cost $27 or so.

The exception would be Amazon, who happily refund shipping even when the cost is more than you originally paid for the product.

 

However for most retailers, I second the request for a courier label or pack to be sent.
