I dropped my Wahoo Bolt yesterday which cracked the screen. Whilst it functions now, I’m not convinced that it will survive rain and so I want to try and replace the screen. Has anyone on the forum had any experience of replacing the screen or know of any specialist companies that do this.

Contact Wahoo to check if they provide a screen replacement in the first place.
Could be the case that this is simply not economically viable.

Wahoo don’t do anything with regards to repairs on the bolt as they say it’s a sealed unit! They may give you some sort of code so you can get discount on their site, if you decide to get a new one.

Thanks guys already raised a case with Wahoo but they’ve not responded yet. From what i’ve read the best i can expect is a discount on a new unit or maybe i’ll wait for the new roam but who knows when that will be announced given the recent delay.

Wahoo offered me a 40% discount on a new unit which i’ve taken. Apparently the unit is sealed and cannot be repaired.

Not quite related & perhaps a weight weenie sin but I use a silcon case and screen protector on my Bolt. If I would use the same to protect my phone, why not my headunit?

Also chose a black skin b/c the grey one I bought (new colors weren't available then) didn't suit my tastes.

My bolt screen also cracked following a pretty soft fall on a gravel path. Not built so tough. It's survived 6 months including rainy days with a screen protector on top. So far no signs of water ingress.
