    • You may be able to peel up the adhesive with tweezers.

    • Once you have all of the pieces of adhesive removed, you may want to use an alcohol soaked q-tip to clean any residue off the back of the screen.

    • Use tweezers to peel the outer ring off of one of the adhesive strip pads.

    • Be sure to get both the double-sided adhesive and the brown backing paper.

    • Be very careful not to fold, bend, or stretch the adhesive tape, as this will make it too thick to seal the screen without a ridge between the screen and the case.

    • Lay the backed adhesive tape down on the Force Touch sensor, around the edge of the case where the screen rests.

    • Start in a corner with the tape as close to the corner wall as possible.

    • Press on the brown backing paper with a plastic opening tool to secure the adhesive around the entire perimeter.

    • Use a plastic opening tool to reconnect the display data and digitizer cable connectors.

    • Be careful not to touch any of the contacts directly, as your finger oils may impede connectivity.

    • To reinstall the metal bracket, line up the single tab with the slot in the top of the lower half, and slide the bracket down.

    • Snap the upper bracket in place.

    • Line the battery connector up with its mate on the cable inside the watch body.

    • Use tweezers to press the two connectors together.

    • Rotate the battery down into its slot, and press it into position.

    • Press the battery down against the S1 to re-adhere it in place.

    • Now is the best time to test powering on your watch—if it doesn't turn on, double check all three connectors and try again.

    • Use tweezers to peel off the adhesive backing strip.

    • Move the screen back to the right, folding the display data and digitizer cables neatly.

    • Center the screen over the case and press it down firmly onto the adhesive.
