iFixit has posted its teardown of the new Apple Watch Series 7, partnering with some former Apple engineers for the disassembly.

We rang up our friends at Instrumental, a crack team stacked with former Apple engineers—several of whom led development on early Apple Watch designs. You might say they were instrumental in its creation. Inside we found some surprising display technology that was probably a huge pain to manufacture at scale, likely causing a cascade of delays. When Apple finally unveiled it last month, the watch had no firm release date, a red flag that usually signals production trouble.

The site gave the Apple Watch Series 7 a 6 out of 10 on the repairability scale. You can check out the teardown video below or hit the link for the text version. The Apple Watch Series 7 is available to order now starting at $399.
