Having already seen what’s inside the Samsung Gear 2, iFixit went on the offensive and took their tools to the newly announced Samsung Gear Fit.

Unsurprisingly perhaps is that the Samsung Gear Fit is mostly battery as it features a pretty large 210mAh battery. In addition, there is a removable wristband, but that’s as far as the easy removal procedure goes since the curved AMOLED screen has to be removed from some pretty strong adhesive to access the remaining components.

iFixit awarded the Samsung Gear Fit a score of 6 out of 10 stating that whilst it’s tough to get to the internal parts, the battery is replaceable and the wristband can be removed, so it could be worse.
