    Hi All,

    I noticed that my watch had started making a weird noise when i tapped it, I thought it was due to the new software! Look closer at it today and my screening is falling off on the left hand side of the watch. Have done some research and seen that this has happened to a few but the majority have the whole screen falling off. The watch is out of warranty i bought it last June. Just wondered if anyone had any ideas about what my best options are. I obviously don't expect to pay for this as i've done nothing to the watch to break it. Don't want to spend over a hundred pounds for a new screen. Anyone have any advice about what the best things to say to the genius bar is? thanks in advance, Photo attached

    About all you can do is try and glue it back. Maybe use a toothpick and not use too much. It will probably be susceptible to water damage though and nothing you can do about that.

    Buyer protection plan on your credit card ?
    It will need to be returned for examination & repair.
    If its from a battery bulge it may sway them to it being covered, but not something a Genius could or would determine.
    Does make a strong case for Applecare+

    This happened to my wife's 38mm series 0 rose gold sport watch. It was under warranty due to us buying apple care so we paid $0. Always buy apple care is the moral of the story.

    We tried a few minor things as neither one of us wanted to spend the weekend at the mall but nothing worked to reattached the screen. Once it detaches, its over. Granted your watch is out of warranty so you can try some riskier methods.

    Thanks for all your advice. Just took it to the Genius Bar. Watch getting replaced for free under consumer law in the U.K. Great success!
