Where do you purchase replacement screens?

Is the outer glass and screen two separate parts? If so where can I get the assembly for the outermost glass? Is the touchscreen portion of the watch the LCD itself or the outer screen? I have been searching endlessly for that part or directions on how to replace it.

I took my apart because there was condensation under the touch screen. While doing this I found that there are several modifications to these steps.

1. Use a Philips PH00 as its a better fit.

2. Don’t cut the band. I was able to use a thin spudger to pry around it and get it off. If you do need to replace the band you can find one on Amazon.

3. Don’t scrape away the adhesive; you need that to re-attach the band. You may need to move some of it but you don't need to scrape it clean.

4. At step 5 I found it better to push in the single button and then pry the outer gray casing off. The buttons didn’t appear to remove after the casing was removed.

5. Before step 6: There are 4 clasps that are holding the top and bottom parts together. Those need to be removed before you can pry it open.

Also want to know where to buy the replacement screen or the glass ( if separate)

This is a nice advertisement for minture tools but we need to locate a source for replacement screens…….not screen protectors.

All the tools in the world are useless if you have no screen……no screen no need for tools.

So, where can replacement screens be sourced for the Fitbit Surge
