The back cover of my Fossil wristwatch fell off

In most cases, putting our fossil wristwatch through its charging cycle causes it to produce some warmth, which in turn lowers either the density or the intensity of the adhesive. Because the adhesive loses its strength over time, the rear covering of the fossil eventually comes off.

The following list of Fossil smartwatches are supported with this Repair:

  • Fossil Gen 3 Smartwatch
  • Fossil Gen 4 Smartwatch
  • Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch
  • Fossil Sport Smartwatch 

Warning: Before you begin, please make sure you have thoroughly read all of the procedures in order to prevent creating any kind of error. (Immensément Recommendable)

What to Do If the Rear Covering of Your Fossil Wristwatch Came Off? 

Step 1: extract any old adhesive

The first thing that has to be done in order to complete this procedure is to properly clean the rear cover and carefully remove the old adhesive from the Fossil smartwatch using forceps (Needlenose pliers). Make certain that the detector of the smartwatch does not sustain any harm.

Step 2: Determine Which Glue Will Work Best for the Procedure

Make certain that the Mmobiel T-7000 or B-7000 adhesive is within reach at all times. Why not use one of the many different semi-fluid adhesives that are commercially available? The Mmobiel T-7000 is a very effective strong glue that also has the capacity to waterproof. In point of fact, it is identical to the rubberized glue that the manufacturer uses in the production process.

Step 3: Apply the Adhesive in a Judicious Manner 

Apply the adhesive with extreme caution. Because it is so easy for the glue to do harm to the smartwatch, you need to make sure that you just apply it to the outside region from where you removed the previous adhesive.

Step 4: For the next twenty-four hours, rest some low density on it

After applying the adhesive, cover the wristwatch with a piece of wrapping paper or a fabric made of synthetic fibre, place a weight on top of it, and let it sit for twenty-four hours. Because it is wrapped in tissue, the smartwatch will not sustain any harm or scratches as a result.

Step 5 “It’s Finished!” 

After a period of one day, your Fossil Smartwatch will be ready for action. In addition, since it was purchased directly from the manufacturer, it is in pristine condition.

Advice on How to Avoid the Problem with the Fossil Smartwatch Back Cover 

1. Charge the smartphone while keeping it in the room with the air conditioner: 

The reason for this is that when your gadget is being charged, it produces some degree of heat, which often causes the adhesive to melt. As a result, the best way to avoid overheating your fossil smartwatch while it is charging is to place it in a room that has central air conditioning.

2. Make sure that the equipment is not exposed to water: 

It is in your best interest to store your fossil timepiece in an area that is not exposed to water. Although I am aware that this cannot be followed perfectly in every situation, it is necessary to take some measures most of the time since water gradually reduces the levels of glue with age.

Both of these tips were helpful for me in avoiding the embarrassing situation of having to replace the rear case of my smartwatch every four to five months. It hasn’t collapsed since the day I made a conscious effort to avoid making these errors. Since my most recent fix, it has been almost eight months since I’ve had one.
