The plaintiffs in this case are Andrea Katz and Joel Katz. They allege, on behalf of themselves and other similarly situated individuals, that they purchased and/or owned a Garmin Forerunner 610 watch, and that the watchband was defective. Plaintiffs allege that Garmin breached its contract, breached its warranties, and committed other violations of law by selling Forerunner 610 watches with allegedly defective wristbands.
If you purchased and/or owned a Garmin Forerunner 610 watch in the United States between April 2011 and July 2014 you are a member of the Settlement Class and can file a claim.
If you are a Class Member who has already purchased a replacement watchband to address the alleged design defect, then you are a member of Subclass 1. If you are a Class Member who paid to repair your watchband or watch as a result of the watchband detaching from the watch face, then you are a member of Subclass 2. Members of these Subclasses may be entitled to additional Settlement Benefits.
