Is the force touch sensor, part of the microphone flex cable?

On the teardown of apple watch, it talks about a microphone flex cable, which is part of the force touch assembly. Is this incorrect information? (Original apple watch) I tore a part of the force touch sensor and my microphone isnt working. Could be a coincidence. I bought the watch broken. -thanks

There are now four different Apple Watches! The original, Series 1 & 2, and now the Series 3. Which one are we talking about?

You're OK. It sometimes gets confusing as people mis-mark their device. I've cleaned things up a bit so its clearer which is which.

It is not part of it. I have found an apple watch 1st generation Microphone and speaker flex cable online. This cable is in a complete different area than the force touch cable. I fixit must have messed something up in their teardown.

Sorry @deadbforucme - I don't know for sure. Looking at the IFIXIT Teardown & the raw part I don't see it. The newer versions has the force touch chip on the gasket. Review this guide: Apple Watch Force Touch Sensor Replacement

sorry man im looking to find the microphone flex cable. I broke the force touch gasket, and according to one of the tear-downs, its as if the mic flex was part of it. Logically it doesn't make a-lot of sense and it could just be a coincidence that the mic broke.
