Wearable Tech Apple Watch repair program acknowledges screen cracking flaw The crack can appear on the rounded edge of the Apple Watch Series 2 or Series 3 screens, and the company said it'll replace the screen for free. It details how cracks can sometimes form on screens of the aluminum Apple Watch Series 2 or Series 3. Now playing: Watch this: New Apple Watch on the way, but maybe not a Series 5 A disclaimer noted that the program only applies to Series 3 watches purchased through September, suggesting that either Apple fixed the screen in recently produced models or ended production on that series -- rumors suggest we'll see something new during Apple's September event.
Some batteries will last longer. Battery life depends on many factors, including when the battery was produced, how old your watch is, the consumption level of your watch movement, and how frequently you utilize additional functions on your watch such as the alarm, light, or chronograph.
However, if a battery is left in too long, it can leak battery acid and cause damage and extra service costs Some newer watches run on rechargeable batteries.
Eco-Drive or Solar watches should never be kept in the dark but should be kept on a night-stand or in a storage container that has a glass lid. Kinetic watches run from the motion of your hand, similar to a mechanical automatic watch. It is strongly recommended to have your watch pressure tested after every battery change to prevent the possibility of water damage.
If you don't plan on wearing your watch or if your battery has stopped and you don't plan on replacing it, we strongly recommended you have the battery removed so that it doesn't leak and damage the movement. These types of watches must be manually wound, preferably at the same time every day.
You can tell that a watch is fully wound when you feel resistance. There is no such thing as over-winding a watch however if the crown is forced the mainspring will break. If a watch is not worn regularly, it may be kept on a high quality watch winder.
Note that some watches only wind in one direction and it is not uncommon for the mainspring to break if the winder specifications do not match your watch.
It is strongly advised to check with the watch manufacturer and winder manufacturer to make sure the winder specifications match your watch. Many people mistakenly think the chronograph hand is the second hand. In most watches, the stopwatch can be initiated by pressing the top pusher to start and stop the chronograph.
The bottom pusher functions as a reset button and moves the hand back to the 12 o'clock position.
Consult the owner's manual before initiating the chronograph to avoid damaging the movement. Although quartz watches keep the most accurate time, even they may be off by a few seconds per week.
These numbers may vary depending on the watch manufacturer. Older watches may have a much wider variance. The only watch that will keep accurate to the second is an atomic watch. First determine whether your watch has a push-in or screw-down crown.
If it is screw-down, then you must unscrew the crown until it pops out slightly. If not, gently put out the crown.
Your crown may have multiple positions which access various functions such as the day, date, or time. Please refer to your user's manual for special setting instructions.
After setting the correct time, make sure to push the crown in all the way 8 and screw it down tightly if necessary. Overtime, these gaskets begin to dry out and crack, and lose their ability to keep water out.
It is recommended to have the water-resistance seals checked or replaced approximately every two years for quartz watches, this is about as often as a battery replacement. If you notice condensation under the crystal, or water on your dial or hands, take your watch to a professional watchmaker as soon as possible.
Besides discolored, water will damage or destroy the movement. Restoration can sometimes result in several thousand dollars in repairs. Never activate push buttons under water as this will cause water to penetrate the case.
Never wear a watch in the hot tub or sauna. Submersion in water is not acceptable. This includes showering, dishwashing, and swimming in shallow water. Specifications will vary and should be review before use. Magnetic objects include cell phones, televisions, computers, certain types of jewelry, hair dryers, electric razors, and of course magnets.
It is strongly recommended to keep watches away from such items. Although some watches are designed to be worn during sports activities, many are not.

Therefore, it is recommended that you remove your watch before playing any sports that involve strong impacts. Dropping a watch or hitting it against a hard object may cause severe damage to the internal mechanism as well as the exterior of the watch.
If you notice that your bracelet connection springs have become loose, have them replaced as worn out pins often break or snap out resulting in the watch falling off the wrist. Contact with water or perspiration may cause premature wear and tear of the strap. If you find it necessary to clean your watch case and bracelet, and your watch is water resistant to at least m, you may do so with soapy water and a soft-bristled brush.
If you have a high-polish bracelet, you may want to avoid brushing too hard as you may leave scratches on the bracelet. Dry the watch with a lint-free polishing cloth and avoid using excess heat, such as a hair dryer.
Once an estimate has been approved, required replacement parts are ordered, the movement is removed from the case and completely disassembled. Some movements can consist of only several parts, however the more complicate the timepiece, the more parts there are.
Some movements consist of over pieces. The movement goes through a multi-step ultrasonic cleaning process. It is then reassembled, precisely lubricated with the proper lubricant for each specific function, timed, and tested for factory specific accuracy. Before the watch is closed, all of the necessary seals are replaced and the case is pressure tested.
Most watch cases and bracelets can also be refinished or polished if desired. Such repairs include the replacement of a stem, crown, push-button, gasket, or crystal. Manufacturers recommend a complete maintenance service, or overhaul, approximately every four to seven years.
