    • Remove the five 7mm screws with H1.3 hex screwdriver.

    Why is a H1.3 being used here when the screws look like TORX?

    They are in fact TORX bits. A T5 driver fit neatly.

  2. Use a plastic opening tool to remove the face of the device to expose the inner components. There is one metal piece at the top of the face that is loose. This is the GPS antenna which will need to be removed as well. Be careful with the ribbon that connects the motherboard to the display.

    Yes, not pulled backwards, just straight up. I wish I had seen this comment before hand. Maybe Victor could add it to the notes? Otherwise a great guide.

Does anybody do It in a fenix 5?

Fernando Alcaraz - Responder

Thank you. It saved me around over £100 to change the battery myself. Garmin quoted around £121 for battery replacement for out of warranty watch. I bought the battery around £15 and followed the guide to change the battery myself in my Fenix 3 watch. My watch does not have heart rate monitor, perhaps the ribon at step 5 is for HR monitor as I didn’t have it in my watch. Thanks again for simple, detailed and easy to follow instructions.

Where did you get the battery?

Alex -

Howdy,

Followed all your steps but now the new battery will not charge. Could I have missed something in replacing the battery somehow? Pins not making contact or so?

Adrian - Responder

I’ve just followed these steps, and with £4.50 for a precision torx set, and £14.50 for a battery that came the next day by UPS, it’s saved me loads. The couple of things I would add are - you can use double sided tape to attached the new battery, and buy a battery with the connector already attached unless you are an electrician it saves the fuss, and make sure the connector is fully in place, it’s easy for it to be marginally out and you’ll get no power.

thanks!

Jason Clarke - Responder

Can you please post a link to a suitable battery? especially that one with the “already attached solution” seems very interessting to me :) Thank you!

Marcus - Responder

Do you think there’s room to put a larger MaH battery in there?

Brian Vinci - Responder

Thank you very much. Clear and easy to follow. I would only add there how to detach the battery. Not to pull but pull up from the motherboard.

Thanks

What about the seal after replacement ? Is it preserved so water does not pernetrate ?
