Share This:

Are you noticing that your Apple Watch face is falling off? If so, you’re not alone. Many users have reported the same issue, and it culd be due to a few different causes. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at what might be causing your Apple Watch face to come off and how you can fix it.

First, let’s start with the most common cause of an Apple Watch face falling off: adhesive failure. The adhesive used to attach the Apple Watch case to the display assembly may not be strong enough to hold it in place over time. This could be due to a manufacturing defect or simply because the adhesive has degraded over time.

If this is the case, there are two ways to fix it: either replace the adhesive with a stronger one or use an adhesive tape to reinforce the existing adhesive and help keep it in place. To do this, first clean both surfaces with isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth. Then cut a piece of adhesive tape that is slightly larger than the area whre your watch face has come off and press it firmly onto both surfaces, making sure all edges are flush against each other.

The other possible cause of an Apple Watch face coming off is water damage. Water can seep through any cracks or crevices in your watch casing and cause corrosion inside. If this happens, you will need to replace your watch casing as soon as possible to prevent further damage from occurring.

Finally, if none of these solutions work for you, then it’s time to take your Apple Watch into an authorized service provider for further inspection and repair. They will be able to determine what has caused your watch face falling off and provide you with the best solution for fixing it.

We hope this blog post has been helpful in identifying why your Apple Watch face may have fallen off and how you can fix it.

Investigating the Cause of a Lifted Apple Watch Screen

The screen of your Apple Watch is lifting due to a swollen battery. This issue is commonly seen in first-generation Apple Watches and is caused by the battery expanding over time. The swelling of the battery causes it to push out against the sides of the case, which then lifts the screen up from its frame. Unfortunately, this issue may not be covered under the 1-year warranty that comes with most Apple Watches, so you may need to look into other repair options.

Replacing the Adhesive on an Apple Watch Series 3

To replace the adhesive on your Apple Watch Series 3, begin by holding the replacement adhesive diagonally against the display. Slightly tilt the display forward so you can align the adhesive with the frame. Once in place, use a pointed end of a spudger to press and move it into position. Finally, make sure everything is securely in place and that there are no air bubbles or gaps between the adhesive and frame.

Replacing an Apple Watch Screen Yourself

Yes, it is possible to replace your Apple Watch screen yourself. Depending on the model, you may need specialized tools or other items to complete the repair. First, you sould look up a repair guide specific to your Apple Watch model on iFixit. The repair guide will provide detailed instructions and a list of necessary tools.

You will need to remove the display assembly from the watch case before replacing the screen, which can be tricky because of its small size and delicate parts. After that, you’ll need to use adhesive or screws in order to attach the new display assembly back into place. Once the new display assembly is attached back into place, you can then attach the new screen and reconnect any cables or sensors that were removed during disassembly.

If you do decide to go ahead with a DIY Apple Watch screen replacement, make sure that you take all necesary precautions and follow all safety instructions provided in any repair guides closely in order to avoid damaging your device further.

Are Apple Watch Repairs Covered by Warranty?

No, Apple Watch repairs are not free and the cost of repair will depend on the issue and your coverage. If the issue is covered by the applicable Apple warranty, AppleCare+, or consumer law, then there is no cost for service. If not, then you may be charged a fee to repair your Apple Watch. In some cases, if the issue with your Apple Watch is ineligible for service, you may need to pay the full replacement value.

Is Wearing an Apple Watch with a Swollen Battery Safe?

No, it is not safe to wear an Apple Watch with a swollen battery. Swollen or bloated batteries can be caused when the battery has been overcharged or has become damaged, causing an increase in temperature and pressure inside the battery. This can create a safety hazard as the pressure may cause the battery to rupture or ignite, leading to burns and other injuries. It is important to take off your Apple Watch immediately if you notice that its battery is swollen or bloated and to dispose of it properly.


In conclusion, the Apple Watch is a highly advanced and sophisticated piece of technology. It has a Force Touch sensor for precise interaction, and its lithium-ion battery can swell as it ages, which is normal. With an AppleCare+ plan, accidental damage is covered for the glass of your watch. Even if your watch is out of warranty, normal aging of the battery will still be eligible for coverage with AppleCare+.
