Why is my watch getting hot charging after screen replacement?

So I recently changed my wife’s screen last night and stuck it on the charger. I got the green snake and left it overnight. The next morning I checked on it and it wasn’t charged. I tried to reset the watch but it stays at the green and red snake. Now when I put it back on the charger it gets very very hot. Did I damage the battery or something else?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I am having the same problem. I am trying to check the battery now with a multimeter but I can't locate positive/negative sides of battery to test???

Hi Aaron !

It is possible your battery is damage.

I advise you to follow the repair tutorial for the screen to check the connections and the battery replacement tutorial.
