Introduction

With this guide I will show how to remove the inner components of a Withings Activité Pop Smartwatch using only commonly found thin flat blade watchmakers screwdriver. It is very simple to do, but there are small screws that can get lost, so prepare a small box to keep them during the disassembly.

This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your Withings Activité Pop Smartwatch, use our service manual.

  • The case back can be opened by prying with the opening tool or a flat screwdriver. You will see the CR2025 lithium battery shining with all its glory.

  • Using a thin flat blade screwdriver remove three self tapping screws holding the inner plastic cover. The vibration motor (round metal part in second photo) has a sticky tape on it. You may need to apply force to separate the motor from the inner plastic cover. See the main PCB.

  • This Withings Activité Pop Smartwatch had water ingress and it failed due to corrosion. A common fault with this watch is loose inner screws, leading to poor PCB contact with motors. When you change battery make sure you apply silicone grease on the rubber gasket of the case back. The dial and hands are not accessible since the glass is pressed.
