How do I repair or replace gold terminals

I’m not sure why the comment was lost in my inbox. To answer the question regard the gold charging pins, the ones visible in step 2 for the first picture, you’d have to slide a pair of tweezers underneath the blue chip the one seen in step 4. this is dangerous as it’s more integrated to the case than the other parts. At that point you’d need to find a replacement pin set. I haven’t personally worked with the watch for sometime as i no longer have it due to the fact it needed to be returned. In other words this is only a best guess from my experience working with the watch. You might need to unhook the gold tab underneath the blue chip to give yourself a little extra room.
