    • Remove the battery.

    • Do not reinstall a damaged or deformed battery, as doing so is a potential safety hazard.

    • Secure the new battery with pre-cut adhesive or double-sided adhesive tape. In order to position it correctly, apply the new adhesive into the device at the places where the old adhesive was located, not directly onto the battery. Press the new battery firmly into place.

Conclusion

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before you install it.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

During reassembly, apply new adhesive where it's necessary after cleaning the relevant areas with isopropyl alcohol (>90%).

For optimal performance, calibrate your newly installed battery after completing this guide.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

Where did you buy a replacement battery (if you did)? I have scoured thru aliexpress, ebay, and tried to find shattered-screen watches I could transplant from, with no luck so far. I guess I'll keep looking. My watch barely lasted a year before the battery life halved. The voltage sag is so bad the watch bootloops whenever it vibrates below 30% voltage.

I've found a listing in aliexpress for an aftermarket battery but need to de-solder the original BMS and transfer to this new battery. Here's the link to aliexpress.

I don't think it's tin welding, but most likely TIG welding.

Difficult to open it, but the less experienced could solder the battery contacts on the top without opening the old solder.

A small problem (solved) that I encountered with the battery purchased as compatible from ali-express is the greater ( >5mm)

distance (compared to the battery) of the original two poles of the battery.

You have to bend them carefully inwards to be able to weld them afterwards.
