Einleitung

Use this guide to replace the adhesive of your Apple Watch Series 3 and reseal it.

This guide shows the procedure on the standard, GPS-only version of the watch, but the cellular/LTE version is similar. Any important differences are noted in the text.

    • Apply a little bit of isopropyl alcohol (>99%) to a Q-tip or use a cleaning pad to gently remove the adhesive leftovers on top of the force touch gasket.

    • To remove the adhesive on the side where the display cables are running, fold down the display and carefully pull it away from the frame so there's enough space.

    I bought 6 adhesive strips expecting to foul up some. I tried following this procedure on three of the sets, but on each set I ended up with one corner not quite long enough to seat properly. On the fourth set I altered the procedure and it finally worked the first time.

    1. Take off the screen. Yes I know, but do it anyway.

    2. Take off only the blue adhesive around the periphery. Do not remove center area.

    3. Place sticky side on force gasket. Seems small, but fit perfectly.

    4. Remove entire inner rectangular portion of adhesive strip

    5. Replace screen

    6. Re-Attach battery

    7. Follow rest of procedure

    • To improve bonding of the adhesive you can use an iOpener to warm up the display. Then apply some pressure for a few hours (placing it under one or two heavy books overnight might be a way).

My adhesive gasket I ordered from you doesn’t not look like the one you use. I don’t see how it could work either.

Ryan Hoover - Antwort

My adhesive was larger than the rim so it had about 5-6 mm bump of extra plastic when I got it in the edge all around. Need it to be sealed so I didn't want to cut anything. Fail.

Yes mine was also larger than the adhesive seal that is advertised here.
