Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “iFixit teardown new Apple Watch Ultra [Video]”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

You shouldn’t open your Apple Watch Ultra, Derek, but we appreciate your service by giving us an inside look at Apple’s newest smartwatch. Now, iFixit has posted its own teardown. The company calls this product “beautiful, rugged, and almost repairable.” Does it mean 9to5Mac‘s Derek Wise will ever be able to make his Apple Watch Ultra waterproof again?

iFixit’s video starts by showing us the Apple Siren in action. Although the Apple Watch Ultra speakers are more prominent and louder than in any of the other models, iFixit doesn’t think it’s loud enough.

Then, to open the Apple Watch Ultra, the company took the same steps as Derek Wise did. Here are the steps he took a few days ago:

The bottom of the Apple Watch has four P5 pentalobe screws. These are the same sort of screws that hold on the bottom of MacBook, and while they aren’t as common as a Philips or flathead screwdriver, pentalobe screwdrivers aren’t uncommon either. After I took out those four screws, the first complication arose – there is a very tiny o-ring around each screw. These are, no doubt, part of the extreme waterproof ratings of Apple’s high-end smart watch. As I went to screw back in those initial four screws, it proved nearly impossible to tighten them without the o-ring partially slipping out of its place.

As noted by Wise and iFixit, the Apple Watch Ultra isn’t exactly glued, which means it’s not that easy just to reseal the device after you repair it. Another important thing is that you can’t remove the battery through the bottom of the Watch, which means you have to open it through the screen, which in iFixit’s case, the display broke.
