I'm about to embark on replacing the battery for my fitbit surge. After having it for over 2 years it requires a charge about twice a day which get annoying.

Does removing/replacing the battery require the moderate soldering skill?

The last photo I think shows the tool prying the force feedback motor, the battery is the white plastic covered slim brick on the top right.
