And how do you connect the new battery to the motherboard?

What kind of connection is used between the two?

Farely certain battery ribbon conector is soldered to the circuit board. Gently pulling on it will seperate it but results in tearing. Two other things not mentioned is when removing the rear cover note the round disc object that looks like a button cell, it is glued to the back plate. Care must be taken when removing or one can pull out the red and blue wire from the circuit board. Second thing is a ribbon connector that needs to be disconnected from the cicuit board before the board can be removed. The plastic spudger or tweezers should do he trick. Its easy to miss as a piece of foam hides the connection point.

Anyone found a source for these batteries? I've found the manufacturer but not a retailer.

There are some really small batteries on aliexpress, do you know the measurements of the original one? I kinda want to replace mine as battery life has been declining.

if I can find my T3 driver I'll pull my watch open and use the calipers. You just need the external dimensions of the battery?
