Batteries can be found on ebay. I was surprised to see the band come back to life. I found the “pop” connector difficult to align properly. Almost lost patience with it. Got it on, reassembled and it powered up.

Mine will power on but only while its charging. After I take it off the charging cradle it immediately powers off. Do you think the battery replacement will solve this problem? Thanks in advance for any input!

Brilliant, my band is out of warranty and I could not get the battery charging problem fixed. Purchased a new battery on E-Bay, fitted it using the instructions and the band now works.

Thanks for the post and showing me how to fix the Band.
