[* black] This watch splits apart very similarly to the [guide|27038|Gear Live|stepid=66765]:
[* black] Rear half has the battery, vibrator, and some other fidgety doodads
[* black] Front half has the main board and display
[* black] First treasure extracted: a springy metal retaining clip that secures the battery. It also hosts a chunk of rubber that that connects the reset button to the microswitch on the motherboard.
[* black] Next victim: the vibrator. This particular unit connects via simple spring contacts, unlike to the soldered-to-a-board-connected-to-the-main-board approach the [guide|27038|Gear Live utilizes|stepid=66775].
