Knocked watch screen loose
I bumped my Apple Watch Series 1 and knocked the screen loose. The screen is still connected to the watch (by a ribbon cable) and the watch still works (at least as far as I can determine). I have tried very gently pressing the screen back into place but it won’t stay. I checked with a local repair shop that I’ve dealt with before; they are honest and knowledgeable. They don’t do or recommend 3rd party repairs on Apple Watches because Apple Watches are intended to have a certain amount of water resistance, once that is broken, it's recommended that the whole device is replaced. They are not trying to sell me a Watch, but they are suggesting I purchase a new or refurbished one. (BTW, the watch is out of warranty)
So, after having searched your site, I’m guessing there’s no way to replace the adhesive that secures the screen without disassembling the watch first? The disassembly process looks complex and delicate (which isn’t surprising, of course).
Thanks in advance for any input/suggestions/advice.
Is this a good question?
