This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your W8 Android Smart Watch, use our service manual.

For the teardown I'll be using the iFixIt Protech Toolkit. It has everything I need and all tools required to do the teardown

  • Something we haven't seen since iPhone got invented. Removable and Replacable battery

  • Under the battery you'll find a slot for a Micro SD card (Not included, added it myself) and a SIM card slot

  • Now we have to remove the vibration motor, don't be fooled (Like I was), this is NOT a battery! (Thanks for correcting me Pawel)

  • For this I used a simple tweezers

This is vibration motor not battery!

  • With the 4 screws removed, we can remove the top layer.

  • On the bottom and on the left top there's the speaker

    • Is this what they mean with integrated audio?

  • We can now also remove the band from the watch.

    • If we look closer, inside the band, there's the GSM Antenna (Thanks for the tip Pawel!)

This is GSM antenna.

  • If there's anything that can't stop us at iFixIt, it's gotta be this. Simply use the Tweezers from your iFixIt Protech Toolkit and your good to go

  • Before taking off the board, there's 2 cables you need to unplug first!

    • Note the 2 cables are locked so you'll need to simply push up the lock so you can take out the cables, do this with accuracy and precision, using Tweezers!

  • Now we can take out the board!

  • And now we've come to the end.

  • In such a small device, so much functions. We've learned a lot today.

    • We also learned that a iPhone 5C Camera is no good at taking pictures at close distance!
