    I had to remove that screw on the core assembly using a Phillips 000. When I initially tried lifting, the core assembly started to bend. Mine also has a connector under the core assembly near the thumb in the picture. The connector goes from the underside of the core assembly to the screen/body. It prevents me from removing the core assembly as I'm not sure how it should be removed examining it

    This step is really difficult, and I'm still not sure it was necessary. The core assembly is really packed in there, and it took me several attempts, lifting from various corners. Don't pull by the circuit board. It will bend if you're not careful. You've got to get under the core assembly. I had the most luck starting next to the display connector at the top, then moving to the sensor on the other end of the board (barometric sensor), then moving to the speakers on the left, and finally lifting from multiple points once it was out far enough. In really hoping I didn't damage anything.

Does anyone know where to buy the replacement screen for Active 2? Or what keywords should I search for (SKU or model)?

Angelo Sembrano - Contestar

SM-R830 for the 40mm version, SM-R820 for the 44mm one. People on ebay resell them but they cost upwards of $100. I’d look into broken watches of the same type that maybe the battery is dead and they’re selling it for cheap, then do a swap job on the (hopefully) working screen.

What adhesive would be best to use?

Kelsey Crank - Contestar

This E600 adhesive could work for you if carefully applied not spilling it over the back of the display.

I broke my 40mm Active1 screen, anyone know if I can put in a 40mm Watch 4 screen in and get the better resolution?

Kevin Vågen - Contestar

Is there a way to test the existing display? I made mistake of swimming in watch and it went into a continual reboot loop before it quit doing anything. I've got a replacement battery and installed it pretty easily but even when everything is put together except the back screws, nothing happened on the display when I put it on a known to be working charger. When I compare the appearance of the display connector and the slot on the motherboard to the pictures in the tutorial it looks like there is some corrosion or the likes there that I am working on removing with Deoxit DN5. But I am trying to sort out if the display itself is damaged or if the bit of corrosion there is keeping it from powering up. I have a voltmeter and the battery seems to be putting out the power that it should be.
