    Hello there !!!! my poor connected has stopped working .... the problem has been the screen, does anyone know where to buy a replacement?
    Or some user of the forum with some 46 connected, that does not work for him, he would sell it for parts Thank you !!!!!

    thank Albert !!

    Yes it would be fine but after race 01, maybe a spare for the connected is fine ......jijijiji :whistling:

    I have disassembled it and it is very easy to change .. I would only need the correct screen

    I’ve a LG urbane 2 which did exactly the same last week, but after a while it came back on, but I’m not hopeful.
    The gen 1 is a nice watch to wear, it’s the best of all for wearing outdoors.
    Try and get one off eBay for a few hundred.

    Can you remember if anything strange happened the morning it failed, were you charging it at the time ? Did the battery get hot ? Did battery run down to zero night before etc etc anything unusual at all ?

    I found it on aliexpress !! I asked a screen seller, he asked me for reference number and watch model I confirm that he had it and he sent me photos, it is the same as the one on our watch Changing it is extremely easy, I have the clock disassembled, remove the old one with two connectors and place the new one, you have to remove the base plate of the clock to insert the cables, it has 3 screws

    It cost me € 57, I have ginned mine and there is not even to remove the screws, I have pressed a little to be able to make enough space to remove the connections without disassembling anything

    56 is a good price if it means you can continue enjoying the watch
