Apple Watch Series 1 Battery Replacement?
Posted by: C(-)ris
Date: June 16, 2022 10:37PM
My trusty series one Apple watch has finally reached the point where the battery doesn't last from when I get up till I go to sleep. It has been dying after around 8 hours lately. Not sure if I want to attempt a battery replacement or just upgrade to a series 3. I see there are replacement kits for around $25 on Amazon. I'm handy enough to do it, I am just not sure if it is worth sinking money into a series 1 when a series 3 is under $150.

Anyone done the battery replacement? Is the series 3 worth the extra $100?

If it was an Edition, sure....

I did a replacement. Wasn't too bad. However, I wound up replacing the watch about two years ago to upgrade as the Series 1 was getting long in the tooth.

i'd add it's time for an upgrade. even the AW3 is long in the tooth at this point.

Wow, I'd never attempt a DIY battery replacement in a Watch, so mad respect.

I'm also with gl with the AW3 being long in the tooth.

An SE would be a better choice, especially given how long you made the Series 1 last.

What's the price of Apple replacing the battery?

I'd probably do either that instead of going to a 3, or go to an SE, minimum.

If it's a Stainless Series 1, I'd definitely get a new battery.

Seems like a series 1 might be worth something some day
