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.

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.
