  • Locate the 4 T3 screws in the back of your watch, and use the T3 Torx Screwdriver to unscrew them.

I have a Huawei Watch W1 Active and the screws are smaller than the T3 Torx ones. Is the hardware of the Huawei Watches W1 different depending on the model? I’m trying to use a T3 Torx Wiha Precision ESD 278 and it is bigger than the watch holes.

  • The glued-down connector in the middle is harder to remove than the rest. That is perfectly fine.

@Chris wellings: i was able to find one on ebay. Arrived quite quickly. And you definitely need a T2(not 3) screwdriver to open up the watch.
