    • Because the gap between the screen and watch body is so thin, a sharp blade is needed to separate the two. Read the following warnings carefully before proceeding.

    • Protect your fingers by keeping them completely clear of the knife. If in doubt, protect your free hand with a heavy glove, such as a leather shop glove or gardening glove.

    • Be careful not to apply too much pressure, as this might cause the knife to slip and cut you, or damage the watch.

    • Wear eye protection. The knife or glass may break, sending pieces flying.

    • Attach or remove the watch band as needed to provide more control as you make repairs.

Can anyone tell me what that 3rd cable is (circled red in the pic linked below)? It’s linked to the metal back in the phone?

I think it is just a grounding wire.

Daniele Carminati -

Did you ever find out what that third wire is?

Antonio Silva Carrillo -

I want to know too, I break it while pulling the battery yesterday, but the watch seems working fine

Coco -

It’s a shield (grounding) line to control EMI noise
