    • The screen is connected to the device by a ribbon cable on the left side with the power button facing you. Do not try to completely separate the screen from the device yet, and be careful.

    • Gently pry the screen loose using a plastic opening tool.

    • If the screen doesn't easily come loose, more heating may be required

    • Using tweezers as a lever, pry the inner assembly out of the external casing.

    • This will be harder than removing the screen. Moderate force may be required.

    gear fit 2 screen assembly is very expensive at the moment at 135 USD + 10USD shipping… looks like you are buying a whole new unit, ridiculous… i am planning to buy a new GF2 and have my defective GF2 to be source of spare parts in the future ( battery, hear rate sensor, circuit board, etc..) or maybe wait some time till prices go down.

I'm also finding it difficult to buy a replacement screen too. Has anyone discovered some. I thought this website was selling some not too long ago. Any more coming in?

Hi guys,

is it possible to detach the display unit from the protective plastic cover (I think it's not glass) ?

would this work with gear fit 2 watch??

dontae.christianson - Reply

No, the Gear Fit 2 is disassembled via 4 screws on the back of the device under small four rubber caps. I learned the hard way

Your best bet is Ebay. I found one for around $35.00, but there are preowened gear fit 2 for cheaper than that. I guess it would for sure be your call if you would like to fit it or not.
