I have the Gear S2 3G version R730V and purchased a battery thinking these instructions would work, but once I opened the watch it is not the same as the one above. Does anyone have instructions on how to replace the batter on the R730V??

Irene I just replaced the battery on my wife’s S2 3g from Verizon. Differences from above are. There is only 1 Philips 3.6 millimeter screw holding the mother board. There are also 5 cables that need to be disconnected. The mother board completely disconnects from the watch. There is no battery casing. Just remove the battery cable, the cable is the one with the little hole on one side and then use a spudger to lift the battery out which seems to have a sticky side to it holding it in. Then reverse order to put everything back together.

I have the watch in the 3G version - R370V . I purchased a battery for it thinking these instructions would work, but once I got it open I see it’s different. I can’t find the instructions anywhere. Can anybody here help?
