The Gear Fit receives a repairability score of 6 out of 10

The iFixit team has been looming over the latest offerings by Samsung which include both the smartphone and the wearable. However, so far the Gear fit has made its way to their tool shop and this brings out a couple of points which might have been hidden in there somewhere.

As it appears, the Gear fit can very easily be removed from its wristband and all this needs is a little push. This is what the wristband makers are going to love because this means that they can offer a number of options for the wristbands. Everything has been housed on to the main chip and this is something we had already expected considering how small the device is. Only the display, battery and shell are the standalone parts.

The 32-bit 180MHz ARM Cortex CPU snuggles against the 16MB of flash memory and the most interesting part is the Broadcom dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0+HS chip which packs the FM receiver on it. The score received by the Gear fit by the iFixit team is 6 out of 10 for repairability which is not so good but still acceptable. If you are a pro at using tools, you can also change the batteries without having to go to a Samsung service representative. source: ifixit
