Introduction

This guide will show you how to replace the motherboard in your LG G Watch.

  1. 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.

    • 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.

    • Now carefully pull the other end of the spring bar to detach the wristband from the watch face.

    • Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the other wristband.
