    • Préparez un iOpener (ou utilisez un sèche-cheveux ou un pistolet à air chaud) et chauffez la face avant de la montre jusqu'à ce qu'elle soit légèrement trop chaude au toucher.

    • Laissez l'iOpener sur la montre pendant au moins une minute afin de chauffer entièrement l'écran et de ramollir l'adhésif qui le maintient au boîtier.

    • Vous aurez peut-être besoin de chauffer l'iOpener une nouvelle fois ou de le déplacer si la partie posée sur l'écran refroidit. L'écran ne se décolle pas s'il n'est pas assez chaud.

    Save yourself some time—use a hair dryer. After multiple efforts with the iOpener, I could not get the screen to pop enough to pry it up. That’s when I grabbed a hair dryer and had it off within minutes.

    Patrick - Réponse

    I heated it up with hair dryer for less then 2min and stick the blade in that was supplied with infix kit and popped right off.

    Does heating the screen not run the risk of damaging it like you can with a phone?

    • L'espace entre le boîtier de la montre et l'écran est tellement étroit que vous aurez besoin d'une lame très fine pour pouvoir les séparer. Lisez attentivement les instructions suivantes avant de commencer.

    • N'approchez jamais vos doigts de la lame. En cas de doute, enfilez un gant épais (p.e. un gant en cuir ou de jardinage) à votre main libre.

    • Faites attention de ne pas appliquer une trop forte pression. La lame risquerait de glisser et de vous couper ou d'endommager la montre.

    • Portez des lunettes de sécurité. Si la lame ou le verre se brisent, des morceaux risquent de vous atteindre.

    In my instance, the problem started with the face/screen popping off because the battery swelled. So I didn’t need to heat the face and pry it off. I did heat it a bit in order to warm the residue adhesive on the edge of the face and the case frame and found it easier to scrap it off gently with the craft blade that came with the $39.21 battery replacement kit. If this is your issue, you can skip the prying up steps.

    jeb605 - Réponse

    Same situation as jeb605 - my watch battery swelled and popped the screen off. Fortunately the force touch sensor did not debond from the watch. Thinking about just cleaning the back side of the screen and applying new adhesive. I used an alternate kit that did not come with the force touch sensor.

    • En utilisant une lame à bout arrondi, vous minimisez le risque de rayure ou de bris de verre. Ne soulevez qu'avec le bout arrondi de la lame, et non avec la pointe ou la partie plate.

    • Introduisez la partie arrondie de la lame dans l'espace entre le verre et le boîtier sur le côté inférieur du cadran qui vous fait face. Enfoncez la lame fermement à la verticale dans l'interstice.

    • Faites attention de garder une maîtrise totale du couteau - si vous appuyez trop fort sur la couteau une fois que l'interstice va s'ouvrir, il risque d'y glisser et de couper la batterie.

    • Avec cette pression, l'interstice va s'élargir et le verre va se soulever légèrement du boîtier.

    • Lorsque le verre s'est soulevé, faites pivoter le couteau vers le bas et continuez d'écarter le verre en le poussant vers le haut.

    It is not possible to separate the screen from the casing? I have heated this thing numerous times and the opening is way too small to get any type of blade, knife or other tool in between. Any suggestions???

    Paul - Réponse

    Using a curved blade like the guide recommends, angle the blade straight down between the glass and the edge of the frame, mid-way along the bottom edge of the case. The metal of the case will flex *just a little bit*, allowing you to slowly rotate the blade so the cutting edge is now pointing towards the center of the watch instead of down towards your work surface. You may need to rock the blade back and forth, sort of massaging the curve into the seam between the glass and the metal before it works. And like they mention above, lots of heat. I used the heatpack they sell, put it in my toaster oven on 200. I started at 130, and went up in 20 degree increments until it worked.

    Pete -

    I've tried everything, heating it up until it's too hot to touch, pressing the knife in the gap straight down, at an angle, nothing seems to work. I've tried using all my arm strength and it still doesn't even enter the gap. Is the iFixit Jimmy not thin enough for the job?

    Kenneth - Réponse

    It’s not. The Jimmy’s a great pry tool, but not a cutting blade and not sharp enough for this particular job. You want a curved razor like the guide suggests.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    Just to emphasise after quite a struggle - the blade absolutely matters!! I tried about 5 and almost gave up before the last one lifted the glass quite easily. Obviously, you want a thin blade! No, thinner than that!

    Mark Moore - Réponse

    Plenty of heat helps this part. Also PLEASE PLEASE wear a glove. Nearly lost a finger thinking I was careful enough…

    jake - Réponse

    Apple Watch Ceramic Series 3… Unable to crack open even with curved razor. The tolerances are extremely tight. Does anyone have any tips? Being ceramic, there is no flex at all.

    kurt - Réponse

    I got hung up on this step for over an hour. The key for me was to keep the watch straps on! I initially took them off thinking it would be easier to work with the watch, but I guess just the little pressure I placed on the glass while trying to hold the watch and use the blade was enough to keep it in place. At first I thought I didn’t use enough heat and ended up reheating the iOpener a few times and applying it to the watch over the course of an hour. I put the top strap on, put it back flat on the table and held the watch secure with just the strap. I gave it another go with the blade and the screen instantly popped off. Also, be careful with the force you use on the blade… it seems with adequate heat, you don’t need to use that much (I ended up cutting through the Force Touch sensor and punctured the battery).

    phchang - Réponse

    I would never use a knife like this to remove the screen. It’s way to wide to get in between the glass and body, without potentially breaking the glass. I use the Ultra Thin iFlex Opening Tool, sold by IFIXIT. Seriously. You won’t wanna use a fat blade like that after you take the iFlex for a test drive.

    Donald Fournier - Réponse

    I used the rounded blade provided by iFixIt themselves as part of the Series 1 battery replacement kit and even that was wide enough that it scratched my case while trying to pry the screen up. Also I had to heat the iOpener like 3 or 4 times consecutively at 30s each and leave it on the screen for 5+ minutes before the screen would even budge. Heating for 30 sec and leaving on the screen for 1 minute was not even close to enough.

    Happily After Ever - Réponse

    The display came off nicely after heating the iOpener a couple of times and wiggling the blade a bit. Now i have replaced the battery and the force touch sensor an thought I was ready for a dry run. So I did not peel off the final layer of film so that I can still remove the display. What I see is not good, the display is full of stipes and pixles in many colors. So, did I break the display (e.g. by heat) or does it have to be completely glued to the sensor in order to work?

    Jörg - Réponse

    I got the answer. Unfortunately, I broke the display. A magifying glass revealed that I have scratched the cable where I inserted the blade. Replacing the display and I fixed it!

    • Une fois que l'interstice est assez large, insérez la pointe d'un médiator sous le verre.

    • Faites glisser le médiator le long du côté inférieur pour décoller l'adhésif qui maintient l'écran au boîtier.

    • Faites très attention de ne pas introduire le médiator trop profondément. 3 mm suffisent, vous risquez sinon d'endommager les câbles.

    • Faites passer le médiator vers le bouton de la montre en l'insérant doucement pour décoller l'adhésif et continuer d'élargir l'interstice.

    • Souvenez-vous de ne pas introduire le médiator trop profondément - le plus simple est de faire pivoter le médiator plutôt que de faire glisser la pointe.

    • Continuez l'opération sur le reste de l'écran en faisant pivoter le médiator vers le côté gauche de l'écran pour décoller le reste d'adhésif.

    • Laissez le médiator entre l'écran et le boîtier pour empêcher que l'adhésif n'adhère à nouveau à l'écran.

    • L'écran est connecté à l'intérieur de la montre par deux câbles situés près de l'angle supérieur gauche. Faites très attention en soulevant l'écran ou vous risquez d'endommager ces câbles.

    • Soulevez légèrement le côté droit de l'écran pour le libérer d'éventuels restes d'adhésif.

    • Soulevez également le côté gauche de l'écran - mais n'essayez pas de retirer l'écran. Il est encore attaché par deux câbles.

    • Si vous voyez la couche supérieure de votre capteur Force Touch parmi l'adhésif de l'écran, c'est que les deux couches du capteur se sont séparées et que vous aurez besoin de le remplacer ou de le réparer.

    Hi, thanks for the guide, nice work. I miss a picture of the natural opening of the screen, as the mentioned “Force Touch sensor slides” gets connected from the screen to the main body of the watch by a pair of very thin wires. None of these wires are seen in any of the pictures among this guide, which may lead novices to not pay enough attention to them, broke them accidentally, or not knowing what are them for. Picture on step 13 is absolutely impossible without removing the slides / thin wires of the force touch sensor in advance.

    Be VERY careful when moving the display and attached 2 cables. While they are reasonably protected it is easy to over stress these cables, resulting in tearing of the mini ribbon cable attached at the base. Move the screen the absolute minimum required to get to the battery.

    • Utilisez des ciseaux pour couper un médiator à approximativement la largeur de la batterie. Essayez de ne laisser aucun angle pointu.

    • Insérez l'outil modifié entre le côté droit de la batterie et le boîtier.

    • Appliquez une pression constante pour soulever lentement la batterie en faisant levier et décrochez-la ainsi progressivement de l'adhésif qui la fixe à la carte mère.

    • Faites attention à ne pas déformer ou perforer la batterie.

    • Sur les modèles plus large (42mm), il est possible d'accidentellement faire levier sur la carte mère sous la batterie. Insérez le médiator modifié juste assez pour allez sous la batterie tout en évitant la carte mère.

    • Si nécessaire, vous pouvez appliquer de l'alcool isopropyle à haute concentration (90% ou plus) autour et sous la batterie pour ramollir l'adhésif.

    • N'essayez pas de retirer la batterie car elle est toujours connectée.

    I tried removing the battery with the prying tool as instructed, but I think it may have slightly damaged the outer black plastic wrapping of the battery. Does this mean the battery is now damaged and needs to be replaced? Or is that just a cover around the battery and it doesn’t matter? I just don’t want any battery chemicals leaking out. Asking before I stick the screen back on the watch, I’ve done all the rest and it seems fine otherwise.

    Danae - Réponse

    Hi Danae, the black plastic is technically just protective, but I would highly recommend replacing the battery. It’s possible there is additional unseen damage, and that plastic helps protect against swelling and normal wear of the battery inside the device.

    Is it possible to place a battery in and charge/start the watch without the screen plugged in? I want to check integrity of the battery. I was thinking to put it on charge in a closed clear plastic container without the new screen on to see if the battery is good. I ‘really’ do not want to wait another 20 days for a battery replacement and the battery has no visual punctures, front looks good and the back where the adhesive is (or were, rather) is deflated and slightly ‘knobby’. I do not know if it is damage or just how it generally looks like or maybe it looks like so because of the old adhesive. It is not inflated or abnormally expanded. Anyone who knows about this? I used a hair dryer directly on the watch opened to loosen up the adhesive, is that a no-no?

    rmann - Réponse

    Watching various videos and instructions from others, I found that there’s no need to remove the screen if your goal is to only swap out the battery.

    It’s meant to make it easier to clean off the old glue and install some double-sided adhesive tape but it was far more simpler to loop the tape around the screen with a pair of tweezers than to try to wrangle with the metal bracket securing the display and digitiser cable connectors.

    T-7000 glue can presumably be used in lieu of double-sided adhesive tape but it’s definitely more messier.

    Anyway, I was initially quite annoyed about my battery expanding and popping the screen off but very quickly got over it when I realised it was a simple $20 DIY fix. Guess I got lucky this time..

    osienna - Réponse

    I’m just replacing the battery. The screen and eveything is fine. While i’ve done just that and the new battery seems secure and eveything, i don’t know which is the adhesive strip that i’d use to re-secure the watch face back onto the watch itself. I don’t need a sensor because the watch face is fine, i just need the adhesive strip and i’m not seeing anything labelled as such in the kit. Ive got 2 tesa stickers (?) and one 3M sensor thing with a little compotent thingy attached to it. Which is the double sided adhesive that goes around the base of the watch to secure the face to the watch?? I was lucky in that my old swollen battery pushed the face off so replacing the battery was fairly easy. Now i just need to secure the face to the body. Any advice?

    Anthony Rezendes - Réponse

    Have followed the guide as best I could but when everything is reconnected the watch will not power up. Have disconnected and reconnected several times but still the same. Fear that is only going to do damage. Watch was working before removing swollen battery which had caused screen to detach.

    when I took it, the watch was hot. It started up and was working. I let it discharge then put it back on the charger. After a few hours, it was not charged and showed the green snake. When I took it out, it showed the red snake.

    Has anyone had this problem and found a solution?

    luc poli - Réponse

    Replaced my Series 1 battery/force sensor. The swelled original battery popped the watch open, so no prying necessary. However, the watch wouldn't work normally afterward, only displaying the "put me on my charger!" image of the charge cord with the disc on the end.

    iFixIt was great about sending a replacement... battery, tools, force touch sensor, the whole kit, no charge. Replacement #2 required prying it open, but the force touch sensor stayed put, so I didn't have to replace that the second time. Watch is charging and behaving normally as I calibrate the battery. Can unlock etc.

    Be very gentle/careful with the tiny force touch sensor screw. A great comment above says if you lose it, you can put in bit of a pick to press the sensor snug where the screw would hold it. I strongly recommend using a cheap hands-free, head-mounted magnifier w/light for this job. A loop of tape to stick the watch to a surface to hold it still while fiddling with the tiny cable connections was a HUGE help. Take your time!

I am replacing a battery that swelled and pushed the screen up. This is the original Apple Watch it was working prior to replacing battery but only lasted a few hours. Got first battery and it didn’t do anything, retailer replaced it since it was a dud. New battery in and placed on charger and I got the snake charging symbol then nothing.

Hi, i had the same problem. After changing the battery, firstly the watch has started. So i have let the watch until the battery was empty and charged it. After a night of charging trying to start the watch : green snake !

So i have let the watch during one week without recharging it. Then i have put the watch on the charger during 2 hours and the watch had started by itself and now all is ok.

Hello, I just replaced the battery on my Apple watch series 1 and have the same issue as some other were already facing while trying to charge the watch : the apple logo appears for few seconds and then disappear again and do the same continuously (sometimes it disappears in a red tainted color). I tried the hard reset, but it was unsuccessful. Does anybody have a solution to this issue ? Many thanks in advance for your help !

Did you found the solution?

My Apple Watch serie1 it’s doing the same thing as you described. I’m wondering if did you found the solution, before makes the inversion on a new battery. I would really appreciate!!!

A solution for me : Look at the response i made for Michael Gagne on this page.

If you have this problem, the battery is not connected properly. Although it may look as though it is, the battery connector is either misaligned or not pressed together correctly. Once connected correctly, the watch will need to be placed on its charger where is will show a white apple logo for a number of minutes before finally booting into WatchOS.

Also just replaced series 1 battery, 38mm, flashing apple logo. Holding the buttons to do a reset gives me a red exclamation mark, resetting again puts me back to the flashing apple. Any ideas anyone?

After Replacing the old, swollen battery, the watch appears to function just fine. I will need to get a new battery to use which works properly and isn’t swollen. Good thing I tested before I pulled the adhesive, or this would have been a much larger headache.

Hi, where did you buy the new battery? I got the same issue, all of the sudden, screen pop up and battery swollen.

Thank you so much!

I replaced a swollen battery. It came with no charge. So, after about 2-3h, it was 100% charged. Watch works again! thanks

Had the same issue but left it on charge for over a day now appears to be working to try out to see what it dose of a few days

I had the same symptoms as rJ Jarecki, swollen battery, red exclamation point, intermittent apple logo, but when I leave on the charger either it gets overheated from attempting to turn on or nothing at all. Is it possible that we all get bad batteries? Not sure if I should try another new battery or what.
