    • Use tweezers to peel the outer ring off of one of the adhesive strip pads.

    • Be sure to get both the double-sided adhesive and the brown backing paper.

    • If you're having trouble navigating the double-sided adhesive, check out this video.

    • Be very careful not to fold, bend, or stretch the adhesive tape, as this will make it too thick to seal the screen without a ridge between the screen and the case.

    • Lay the backed adhesive tape down on the Force Touch sensor, around the edge of the case where the screen rests.

    • Start in a corner with the tape as close to the corner wall as possible.

    • Press on the brown backing paper with a plastic opening tool to secure the adhesive around the entire perimeter.

    • If your replacement battery came with pre-installed adhesive, peel off the protective tab now, exposing the adhesive.

    • Rotate the battery down into its slot, and press it into position.

    • Press the battery down against the S1 to re-adhere it in place.

    • Now is the best time to test powering on your watch—if it doesn't turn on, double check all three connectors and try again.

    • Use tweezers to peel off the adhesive backing strip.

    • Peel the backing strip up halfway, then snip it with scissors so you can peel the rest off without it snagging on the display.

    • Move the screen back to the right, folding the display data and digitizer cables neatly.

    • Center the screen over the case and press it down firmly onto the adhesive.

    • Alternatively, you can use screen vice clamps around the perimeter of your device to set the new adhesive.
