    Wanted Anyone here change I watch batteries?

    Wife has a series one 38mm she barely uses and Apple want £138 to fix it.
    I think its just the battery because it hasnít been charged in almost a year.

    Not tried one myself but have you looked at the iFixIt guide? Doesn't look fun.. delicate and can damage sensors during the repair:

    My buddie fixes apple products for the Apple store in Bristol.
    I dont know if it works on the Iwatches, but i can ask if you dont mind posting it, as im guessing your wont be local.

    Watch won’t be fixed just like iPads, parts are not serviceable with apple, they will replace the watch, also watches have to sent off so will take about a week for replacement
