Drive SmartWatch 2 - Inside (PHOTOS)

Have you ever wondered what's inside your SmartWatch 2 ? No need to google, you won't find. Here is what's inside. After a day from swiming pool some water got inside, no idea how , so I opened it to dry it because I couldn't turn it on. Now rests in dry rice, I will come back with and update if I could make it work again, also I need to find a way to glue the screen to the bottom / motherboard part ( 1st pic ) to make it waterproof again. I will keep you guys posted.

I had one break from diving in the ocean. The USB port is not a very good seal. Things like chlorine change the surface tension of water and may allow it to penetrate more than tap water.

I'm gonna be opening mine soon too. (I made a QI charging mod) but I want to see if I can put a coil on the inside, instead of the outside.

Well, that can be true, the port doesn't supports the pressure more than 1 meter.

Now seems it is working again! I glued the screen with a black silicone, looks like new.

While I don't think swimming with the watch was the best idea... I am truly impressed by your repairs and getting the watch to work again. Congrats, and thanks for posting the pictures!

Yup that was not a good idea, it's good to take a shower it it, not for swimming at all. Yeah, thank you, that was a challenge to open it and dry it. First I tought I completely lost it ... but seems it wasn't like that.

So, the screen is glued to the front glass I'm figuring. I broke mine and I'm guessing I need to replace the whole screen.

Yup, you are right, the front glass is glued to the screen / display. The only way will be to completely replace the front part (front glass and screen). Contact SONY Service and ask for a screen replacement, they will help you as long as you won't find replacement parts on eBay ... .

It would be great if you will keep us posted to see how you fix it.
