Here you go
Glue, well, as far as I can tell this is just a black version of the silicone you have in your bathroom. It's like rubber when scraped/peeled off.
The question is: Is there a reason for this choice? Did they use this to be able to service it later?
If you use Super Glue, you'll never be able to take it apart again. Regular contact glue? The glue used to repair a flat bicycle tyre (Cement something) or just silicone like they did?
When poking ever so gently with a tiny flathead screwdriver along the underside of the screen, I can tell they have a similar silicone seal between the screen and the body. In time, this could probably be cut a bit and pried open with a small box cutter or some other method to remove the screen to replace the battery. It's of course much too new of a product for iFixit to have a repair guide yet, much less anyone selling spare parts. I'll look for a disassembly article/video at regular intervals. Until then and to be on the safe side, I'm staying away from Super Glue or the Epoxy I've got lying around and going to try something less permanent. Worst case scenario: it won't hold it together, and I'll just have to redo it with something stronger, but that's not too much of an inconvenience to me.
EDIT: Having scraped off some of the excess glue, I then re-assembled it using a thin layer of contact glue on both the watch and the case sides and waited 2 minutes. Assembled I can still smell the solvent, which is great, since that means its evaporating, instead of remaining wet like inside the glue tube. Heat resistant to 60 degrees celsius, which hopefully means that, if necessary, it can be heated a bit with a blow dryer and pushed apart.
