Ability to re-waterproof pebble after opening?

Hi there,

I noticed on your guide you say it's impossible to open the pebble without compromising its waterproofing. Would you say it'd be that much more difficult to re-waterproof the device?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Pebble now uses screws and gaskets to close and seal the most recent Pebble Originals and all versions of Pebble Steel. Hopefully iFixit will revisit their teardown and, well, fix it :-). The latest hardware is much more repairable; here's a step by step photo gallery of a Pebble DIY screen replacement: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=...

Find the adhesive ring for the screen, reinstall it properly, the device will still be waterproof

But the device is not repairable because everything is pretty much ruined when opening it, just buy a new one.

Ah right, that's a bugger. Can you elaborate on 'pretty much' ruined? Thanks a lot :)

Look at the teardown, the screen is totally ruined during the disassembly

Ah sorry, I saw that actually. I was wondering if this was the only warning, and indeed if it might be possible to get a replacement screen - or even if an estimate could be given of that replacement screen.

If you were able to get a replacement screen would you be able to put it back together to function normally?
