Apple Watch Series 2 Repairability Score: 6 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)
While not an industry standard, the watch band is easily removed and swapped out for a replacement.
Removing the screen is difficult, but not impossible—it's the first component out, and is connected with easy to use ZIF connectors.
Once you're inside, the battery is fairly easy to remove—if you have the proper tri-point Y000 driver.
While not proprietary, incredibly tiny tri-point screws are a repair hinderance.
Replacing any of the component cables requires microsoldering—but does not require removing the SiP as in the previous generation Apple Watch.
The fully encased S2 system makes board-level repairs impossible.
