Announced September 9th, 2014, this device is Apple's first foray into smart wearables. iFixit's repair manuals are applicable to Apple Watch (steel) and Apple Watch Sport (aluminum).

Difficulty of disassembling the Apple Watch?

After scouring the official Apple Watch page, it doesn't look like there are any screws on the outside casing of the Apple Watch.

Perhaps the screen is glued to the body unit? I'd imagine one would need to take a heat gun to the screen to pry it off and then remove the individual components of the watch.

Any thoughts / conjectures?

Given Apples direction over the last few years I suspect they are using Glue or Magnets if you can't see any screws. We'll need to wait until IFIXIT team gets their hands on one.

Probably the same tricks the watchmaking industry has been using: Screw-down or clip-on back cover.

But it's Apple, I wouldn't bet on it.

BTW, glued-up watch face is also a standard practice for watchmaking industry, you can' blame that one on Apple.
