Step Lines

[* black] Samsung Gear Live Repairability Score: '''8 out of 10''' (10 is easiest to repair)
[* green] The band detaches readily, and more or less like a regular watch band—making replacements a simple, worry-free affair.
[* green] Despite the water-resistant construction, opening the case is no big deal. Bring your T5 driver and pry tools, but don't expect a fight.
[* green] The battery is readily accessed and replaced—with a friendly "Pull" tab to cheer you along.
[* yellow] Several small adhered-in flexible PCBs will present a challenge during repairs.
[* red] The fused display assembly, glued right into the chassis, makes screen replacement a dubious and costly proposition.
