Use the tool that came with the Watch to take off the back cover




Use a T5 Screwdriver to take the screws out of then remove the Watch Straps

Use one of the Soft Pry Tools from the Mobile Phone Repair kit to remove the Back Casing

Use Tweezers or the Soft Pry Tools to carefully remove the black Adhesive Strip

Carefully detach the Ribbons and unscrew the Screws with the T5 Screwdriver




Remove the Battery Enclosure and then carefully remove the Battery with the Soft Pry Tools, this can be a little tricky to get out.

Once the Battery is out, replace with it with the brand new BL-S7 Battery and follow the instructions in reverse order to put it back together.

After everything is put together test the watch by turning it on, remember to charge the Watch straight away - Enjoy your revived LG Watch Sport.
