S2 Screen to S3 Is It Possible

Hi All,

I have a 42MM S3 with a damaged screen, I have sourced a good condition S2 that wont boot but the screen is good.

When I attempt to put the S2 screen on the S3, it refuses to boot and the screen gets very hot.

Just to rule out a faulty screen I have removed a screen from a fully working S2 and it does the same.

So even though they look identical, I think there is something different.

Anyone have any thoughts/experiences

no they are different.

the connector on the far right is different on the 3 vs the 2.

they are not compatible. there are some places (like aliexpress) that sell series 3 screens, but they are pretty pricey still.

you can damage your watch plugging a s2 into an s3, so dont do it.

also, the screen themselves are different depending if its cellular or not (one has a cellular antenna, the other doesnt) the antenna is just above that different connector.
