Samsung Gear 2 smartwatch scores high in teardown

How simple are watches to repair? Mechanical watches take years for a watchmaker to take in his ability, however advanced smartwatches appear to be a ton less demanding if the Samsung Gear 2 is any implication. ifixit disassembled it rapidly and provided for it a high 8/10 repairability score. That is extremely amazing for an Ip67-ensured watch

The most critical and simple to do at home repair is changing the wrist strap. On the Gear 2, the wrist strap falls off effectively since the camera has been proceeded onward the gadget itself, not at all like on the first Galaxy Gear. There are four torx screws and some meddlesome remaining between you and the internals of the smartwatch. There's not a considerable measure inside, acknowledging this gadget packs an AMOLED screen, a double center chipset, HD camera and a heart rate screen. 

Most segments are not difficult to uproot, with the exception of the screen which is intertwined into a whole gathering that will need to be swapped if the screen is harmed. Other than that, ifixit had no grievances.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
