    • Using the plastic opening tool, gently work around the back panel loosening the adhesive.

    • This step may require more than one heating.

    • After loosening the adhesive, carefully pull off the back panel.

    • Remove the copper ribbon that connects the motherboard to the display.

    • Remember the placement for reattachment purposes.

    • The copper ribbon is flimsy so handle with care.

    • Using the Jimmy, separate the back hosing from the rest of the watch. This will reveal the O-ring.

    • Pull the O-ring carefully off the watch.

    • The O-ring breaks very easily.

    • Repeat the heating process on the front face of the watch using the iOpener.

    • With the plastic opening tool, work around the rim, gently loosening the adhesive the same way as removing the rear cover.

    • After successfully loosening the adhesive, slide the LCD display out the casing.

Conclusion

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Where can I buy the screen for the 2-nd generation Moto360 watch ?

Its far easier to remove watch from body by unscrewing the crown, remove the bottom ring then heat the bezel a little so that you can turn the bezel about 10mm counter clockwise with a razor blade edge, then push the whole body of the watch through the metal casing and it should come out easily through the top of the watch in one piece making it easier to access the pcb without damaging anything
