The folks at iFixit wasted no time gutting their new Apple timepiece.
Their Apple Watch teardown confirms that the device comes with a hidden diagnostic port. They’ve also exposed the watch’s Taptic Engine, located the tiny battery, and found some gold highlights on the Apple Watch Sport.
Check it out:
Inside the band slots
Notice the discreet port cover that can be removed with a paperclip or SIM ejector tool.
Removing the display
The Apple Watch display uses a connection similar to the iPhone 5s Touch ID cable cover that places the wires under a springy bracket.
The Taptic Engine
Looks like there’s some gold at the top, too — probably for an antenna.
Apple Watch battery
This little lithium-ion battery powers the Apple Watch. No gears needed.
