In the event of your Gear Live's charging cradle breaking, replacement is your only option. Unfortunately, the charging cradle's design does not facilitate repair, so that option is unavailable.

It's worth noting that at this exact moment there appears to be no way to replace it. Samsung will just refer you to Google, and Google says the cradle is "coming soon".. and has for a while now. (https://play.google.com/store/devices/de...)

In short, Gear Live owners are stuck with a charger that easily breaks and can't be readily replaced. Boo.

The easiest way to get around this that I have found with my own broken gear s charger is that you can use a pill bottle. Simply close your watch strap in the locked position place the charger in position, and use a pill bottle to keep enough pressure on it to charge. Make sure the bottle is not too large so that you don't over stretch your band. I did this because I was leary about buying another charger, knowing that the new one would probably break as well in time.

You can get replacement charging cradle easily on Ebay and it works fine.
