Introduction

The entirety of the Moto 360 is very fragile. Take extreme caution when using tools.

Parts

No parts required.

Set the watch face down on a flat surface.
  • Set the watch face down on a flat surface.

  • Place the heated iOpener on the face of the rear cover to loosen the adhesive underneath.

Note other methods available that doesn't require the purchase of additional tools beyond what typical battery replacement kits offer. i.e. a hair dryer.

This step isn't necessary for battery replacement! Remove the wrist strap, then pull out the 4 catches and jump to step 4. See: https://youtu.be/Jw3n5qbGv-I

  • Work your way entirely around the rear cover.

    • It may take several attempts of reheating the adhesive to get the rear cover loose enough to pull off.

Extremely fragile is an understatement. It pulled it with my fingernail and it cracked

Seems this video has all steps better covered. https://youtu.be/nXwq4zeehe8

Some more tools are needed if you don't want to ruin the device you are fixing.

Why on earth would you guys show a watch with a cracked back cover?? Does not instill much confidence when looking over these instructions.... I mean, was this the only watch you guys had and you broke the cover when making the instructions or what? Or are you guys just trying to make it totally realistic? Just completely baffled by this....

Most watches are ALREADY cracked! Mine has a hairline crack starting on the exact same place as the one on the pic (but it only goes from the indent for the the strap to the middle, not all the way thru, yet).

You can only see it in the right light and angle. My guess is that the glue hold everything neatly and the cracks are not too visible. But they are probably there. Also the pic has Three to FOUR very visible cracks, not one :)

Once the adhesive has been successfully loosened, gently pull the rear cover off.

How to stick it back? Which glue you suggest for the same?

I don't think its possible to buy a replacement back but you can buy a skin protector for the back here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00K2C...

There are replacement back covers available here. They are plastic and Non-OEM but better than a broken back cover: http://www.mpfproducts.com/back-cover-re...

There are small pins that you can push out from the 4 notches around the edge. After removing these, the whole assembly will almost fall out. Almost no prying needed.

Pinch the green rubber O-Ring and slide it off of the watch.

    • The O-Ring is delicate and is easily severed. Use care around sharp objects.

Its not necessary to remove the O-ring, I didn't when I dismantled mine.

Detach the copper ribbon connecting the motherboard to the display. For reassembly, attach copper ribbon where it is marked.

    • The copper ribbon is fragile and easily disconnects. Remember where it goes so as to reconnect it properly.
