Samsung Gear Fit Repairability Score: 6 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair).

While it's a bit of work, users can replace their own battery, greatly extending the useful life of the Fit.

Watch band can be removed and replaced in seconds.

The display is the first component out, easing repair of the most-likely-broken component, but still requires melting adhesive and prying.

Low modularity—peripheral components (home switch, antenna, and vibrator motor) are soldered onto the main board and not individually replaceable without soldering.

The unibody design means any repairs require trucking through the display removal procedure first, risking damage to the LCD.
