Can someone explain what is going on here exactly? Is modifying this resistor going to make my watch potentially unsafe (eg. overcharging)? I find it really interesting that my replacement battery had the same problem as the original.

This may be a battery manufacturer's problem,the old "component" are broken. Just don't use charger(dock) output > 5V 1A there will not safe problem.

Hi,
I have the same issue since a few days. First of thanks for the provided solution. But because removing a potential fuse and bride the contacts doesn't sound really save to me, I want to ask if someone who has done it month ago can report that there are no issues so far.
And if someone had issues please report them, it would be much appreciated and help other people too who will find this Thread in the future.

I just wanted to say thank you!

I bridged the component with a blob of solder and half expected it to blow up in my face but it works just fine. I think I'm gonna order a new battery anyway since this one is 4 years old but this fix solved it for me!
