With this guide I will show how to remove the inner components of a Withings Activité Pop Smartwatch using only commonly found thin flat blade watchmakers screwdriver. It is very simple to do, but there are small screws that can get lost, so prepare a small box to keep them during the disassembly.

    • This Withings Activité Pop Smartwatch had water ingress and it failed due to corrosion. A common fault with this watch is loose inner screws, leading to poor PCB contact with motors. When you change battery make sure you apply silicone grease on the rubber gasket of the case back. The dial and hands are not accessible since the glass is pressed.
