Introduction

If moisture has entered your LG G Watch, you will need to replace the gasket, and possibly the battery and the motherboard.

Spring bars attach the two halves of the wristband to the watch body. The spring bar has a shoulder on either end.
  • Spring bars attach the two halves of the wristband to the watch body. The spring bar has a shoulder on either end.

  • Be prepared to apply some pressure with your fingers to perform the following action.

  • First, slide the wristband down on the spring bar to expose the shoulder of the spring bar.

  • Grasp the exposed shoulder with the tweezers to perform the next step.

Is there a reason you are removing the straps before the back of the watch? They don't block the back from coming off or really get in the way much.

This is a challenging step. Do it carefully to prevent the spring bar from flying out of the wristband. Use the tweezer to depress the spring bar so that it collapses by a few millimeters and pops out of the hole that was holding it in place.
