Where did you purchase the replacement battery?

What is everyone using for sticky tape to hold the bezel/crystal on that will ensure the pebble is still waterproof?

Attempted this using RTV Silicon, and it is %#*@ difficult to not get it EVERYWHERE! I got some on my LCD, now I’m looking for another Pebble. Just use a little superglue on the outside and don’t figure on it being waterproof anymore - I guess.

There’s a lot of replacement battery on internet. Just search “150mAh P11G7T-01-S01”.

Amazing tutorial, i just completed it and everything went fine! I wanted to mention that i used the T-7000 glue to hold both the replacement battery and the screen back in place, hopefully restoring to some degree the water resistance feature of the watch.

Failed. The spudger slipped inside and damaged the screen. Kept trying for the heck of it, removing the screws is also very difficult, as they are tiny and the screwdriver easily damages the head, to the point where they won’t turn anymore. All in all a !&&* of a job, very high likelihood of failure, more trouble than it is worth.
