iFixit has not only managed to get their hands on the LG G Watch but the gadget fixing team has performed its now famous tear down procedure on the Android Wear smartwatch and found that it is pretty easy to repair.

The team found that the watch's case was pretty easy to open, thanks to some T5 screws that keep it in place. Those screws also made it simple to disassemble with the right screwdrivers. The battery inside was also quick to be removed via a spudger tool, as was the motherboard that includes the smartwatch's Qualcomm "System on a chip" set up.

The final repairability score from the iFixit team was 9 out of 10 for the LG G Watch, with the only real issue involving the display, which needed some heat and a delicate touch to remove it from the case, due to its adhesive. Otherwise, this smartwatch looks like it will be easy to fix if something goes wrong.

What do you think of the LG G Watch now that it has been proven to be simple to tear down and repair?
