Impossible to remove screen from Apple Watch

I'm using the iFixit Jimmy. I've heated the watch till it's too hot to touch, pressed downward with all my might using the curved part of the blade as stated, but it still doesn't seem to budge. I don't know if the blade is even able to get into the gap. Someone help?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Yes I was. I’ve rewatched the video and reread the text countless of times.

The Jimmy is going to be too thick to get in, you would want to use an iSesamo, iFlex, or the Magic Glass tool, they are much thinner.
