FYI, I have an Apple Series 1, 42mm Stainless Steel.(Sapphire watch face)
- Notice the damage to the case on the upper left corner. The break and shattering of the screen happened from an impact.
Make sure all surfaces this sticker adheres are absolutely clean.
You'll probably need to buy a "force sensor" because when you took the old screen off, your force sensor was probably damaged (hard not to)...
AGAIN, if you stick the LCD sticker in the wrong spot, you'll have to remove the sticker and re-clean the surface again. (I used alcohol and a fine blade to initially clean the surface)
It's been almost a couple of months now and the watch face performs as when I bought the watch new.
Watch is back in operation with a "new" Sapphire screen and force sensor!
I did a "water resistance" check the day after putting the watch back together. (Might as well test it all the way!) it was fine.
I only needed one LCD sticker, ended up with 4 extra (ordered a 5 pack just in case).
As mentioned before in other posts, you need an absolutely "rock steady" hand to place the sticker in place. Luckily I've repaired a few watches and small electronic pieces in my past, so it was no big deal.
Timeline: broke watch from fall on bike in Feb 2017. (couldn't get SPD pedal unlocked from mountain bike on icy surface and embarrassingly fell over - in front of a winter jogger no less! - she snickered as she passed by! Talk about red faced embarrassment!) :)
Bought these "Front LCD stickers" in March 2017 here on Amazon, along with a "junk watch" locked watch on eBay (for Sapphire face replacement- couldn't find any vendor of original Apple Sapphire LCD watch face), a "force sensor" from "iFixit.com" - also a vendor on Amazon.
One thing before you start: Wear safety glasses and if possible wear protective gloves, do this on a table where you'll clean the surface thoroughly before and after you do the repair and handling/removal of the broken Sapphire glass watch face, and handling/removal/re-install of the new Sapphire watch face. The shards of glass are tiny and VERY sharp!
Summary of steps to repair, costs and parts:
To get a "new" replacement Sapphire LCD screen, I bought a "junk watch", (locked) on eBay for $80.00 + shipping. You could buy one separately, but I didn't see a source for a genuine Apple Sapphire watch face.
In addition, I purchased a new force sensor.
First warm old watch body, remove old screen, battery and force sensor from old watch body. Carefully clean any adhesive from old watch body.
1. warm "new" watch body (place on heat pad until warm)(NOT HOT!)
2. carefully remove the screen from the "new" watch (use reference at "iFixit")
3. disconnect cables and battery
4. set "new" watch aside
5. carefully clean any gasket sticker material and remove old force sensor from "new" watch screen and set aside
6. warm old watch body
7. remove one side of front LCD sticker tape protector
8. CAREFULLY with a STEADY HAND place new LCD front sticker on old watch body - DO NOT allow gasket to touch body of watch unless it's exactly where you want it. If you allow the sticker material to touch, then discard sticker, clean watch edges again and try again.
9. once new LCD sticker is placed on old watch, gently press with a "rolling motion" (to make sure the LCD sticker is firmly attached)
10. remove the other side of sticker tape protector
11. remove one side of the adhesive protector on the force sensor (make sure you attach the correct side by matching the small ribbon cable and screw hole on the force sensor
12. carefully with a STEADY HAND place the new force sensor on the LCD sticker already attached to the watch body. YOU MUST NOT allow the sticker material to touch unless it's perfectly aligned
13. GENTLY perform step 9 on the force sensor
14. attach connector and small screw of force sensor to old watch
15. re-attach screen cables with cable guard shield
16. re-attach battery cable to old watch and make sure the watch "powers up" BEFORE re-attaching new to old watch. (Why? Because once you attach the new LCD face to the watch body, you'll have to start over if you forgot to re-attach battery or cable guard properly)
17. power off watch
18. remove sticker from other side of force sensor
19. gently re-warm watch body and screen (to make sure adhesive is warm)
20. gently and firmly place new LCD watchface screen on old watch body with several pounds of pressure
21. "knead" the edge of the watch screen firmly with some hand pressure
22. place watch, face down on cool, flat smooth surface (i.e. Kitchen or Bathroom countertop) with a small weight in the back of watch (a few pounds will do - I used a 2 liter warmed bottle of liquid, warmed so it would help the adhesive "cure" and seal properly)
23. let sit a day, the bottle of warmed liquid will cool and the watch will too!
After I did the above, my watch works fine!
I sold the band, box and "new" watch carcass (including battery) for $45.00 total. (Don't sell your old watch body, it's your old watch! The "new" watch body is locked, remember?) Bought a force sensor for $29.95, and the LCD stickers, (5 pack here on Amazon) (already had the x-acto knife and small screwdrivers) used a heat pack for warming the watch body, had small guitar picks for keeping the screen body separated. Total invested less than $70 (after selling old watch parts).
In contrast to the $249 + tax + shipping Apple wants to repair the screen (they do an exchange)
This was my experience, hopefully it will go well for you! Just remember: PATIENCE and a STEADY hand!
After I applied the sticker in the proper place on the watch, I used an old Quick Grip clamp to hold the watch face firmly against the base. At first I only left the clamp on for a couple of hours, but after removing the clamp, the watch face was not firmly connected to the base and I could see it starting to pop off again. I then left the clamp on the watch for 24 hours to let the sticker set. That was one week ago and as of today, the watch face is still securely attached to the base and works perfectly. My suggestion is to be patient with the application and let it set for multiple hours before removing the clamp or whatever item you use to keep pressure on the face to be sure it keeps a tight seal with the base.
I have a series 1 watch so I try not to get it wet and cannot comment on how well it will do if I do get it wet with this replacement sticker. I do keep a cover on the face now because it is easy to scratch and I wanted that little extra pressure kept on the face to keep it firmly attached against the base at all times. I did pay for this item and was not enticed in any way for this review. If you have an Apple Watch face come off, this sticker can work to repair it.
