Is your bezel ring scuffed up, unresponsive, or not as satisfyingly clicky as it was new? This guide shows you how to remove and replace the front bezel ring.


  1. Contains small springs and ball bearings. We suggest working over a plate or tray. Hold the watch firmly in one hand, face up. Place the iFixit Opening Tool under the bezel ring and use prying  motion to remove.
    • Contains small springs and ball bearings. We suggest working over a plate or tray.

    • Hold the watch firmly in one hand, face up.

    • The plastic retainer is manufactured with an open gap, you did not break it.

    • For reassembly, set the plastic retainer in the ring, then press the ring down until it snaps in place.

    Which way does the plastic ring go? The top and bottom of it are different.

I got the bezel popped off to clean it. Now it wont pop back on! Help!

shileski - Antwoord

line up the bezel with the screen and push it in

Arthur -

I’ve tried lining it up with the screen and pushing it in about 50 times now and everytime I do it clicks, but after rotating it a few times the bezel locks and I can’t rotate it anymore. YES all the ball bearings are in the right place, YES the springs are in the right place. There’s this little plastic piece that I can’t tell if it goes inside the bezel piece or if it goes on top of the watch next to the ball bearings. I’m able to get the bezel back on when I put the little plastic piece on the bezel, it clicks right in, but it locks up. When I leave the little plastic piece on the watch I can’t get it to click in at all. I think I just royally f’ed up my watch!

I just got myself a used Gear S3 Frontier and on the front face along the bezel ring is the sticker with the numbers that goes around the face is peeling off in one area. My question is this replaceable?

MarkC 609 - Antwoord

Just did this. When you press it in for the last step make sure to follow the instructions by putting the plastic retainer ring into the metal bezel ring then press on. You dont have to press very hard…if you find yourself pressing hard you are doing it wrong.

Did Replacement of bezel, not destroy water resistance ?

Kamil Podkański - Antwoord

Not sure… My guess is that it should be fine, from visual inspection it doesn't appear anything sensitive is exposed with this procedure. No guarantee though.

Jack Cross -

How the heck did you get the bezel ring to pop off??? I have the tools as I replace phone screens with no issues but when you try it on the Samsung Gear 3 Frontier it literally breaks the plastic tool that is shown in the picture. I’ve tried several times with the same result. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Ray Sears - Antwoord

If you are having trouble getting the bezel to snap on, try lining up one side of ring on first then snap the opposite side of the ring in. The white plastic bung ring should line up on the inside of the ring. For some reason if it still wont snap in place try flipping the white ring the other way (I know this doesn’t make sense but I think the white ring goes in only one way).

Ray Sears -

A note for those having an issue getting the bezel back on, I also had an issue getting it to click back in. The problem is that the gasket piece is not seated in the ring well enough. What helps sometimes is stretching out the white gasket so that it pushes against the inside of the ring. You have to make sure it is seated on the ring inside the little groove as best you can, without any piece sticking out or it will not go in. It took me a while to get it, but the main point is that you should spend the time getting it on the ring right first before even trying to seat it. I kept trying to seat it over and over and in the process, the 4 little ball bearings fell out, never to be seen again. I did it over a whole mat, but of course they bounced and flew away. If anyone knows where I can find a replacement or the size of the bearings to buy new ones, I would love to know.

Good luck!!!

Ray Sears -

I don’t have the Frontier, I have the Galaxy Watch 46MM, but the process of bezel removal is the same. I would suspect eBay would be a good start. By the way, I ordered 1.5mm ball bearings after measuring the bearings that I only had 1 left of for less than $5 for a hundred of them. I installed them in place and the bezel works great.

IF ANYONE NEEDS THE TINY BEARINGS alone, ORDER 1.5MM bearings like these from Amazon :

Not sure if I'm allowed to post YouTube links, I can find any posting guidelines on here, but here's a guy replacing the bezel on a galaxy watch which apparently is the same process.

(He gave me the link to the supplier, so I could find the replacement parts)
