+[title] Final Thoughts
+[* black] The Apple Watch Series 3 earns a ***6 out of 10*** on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):
+ [* green] Watch band replacements remain fast and simple.
+ [* green] Screen replacements are difficult but do-able—it's the first thing to come off, and detaches via simple ZIF connectors.
+ [* green] Battery replacements are tricky but fairly straightforward once you're inside, provided you're armed with a Y000 screwdriver.
+ [* yellow] While not proprietary, incredibly tiny tri-point screws are a repair hinderance.
+ [* red] Replacing any of the component cables requires microsoldering.
+ [* red] The mostly resin-encased S3 system makes most board-level repairs impossible.
