Break Knife or another serrated edge knife.
Cutting board - this gets messy!
Parchment paper (or fruit leather trays)
Slice the watermelon into ½" slices

Cut the flesh into shapes you prefer
Place pieces onto tea towels to drain a bit (I put mine on my dehydrator trays over the sink and just let them dry out for about fifteen minutes)

Dry at 135°F / 57°C for between 8-18 hrs until dry and leathery, with no signs of stickiness.
After 4-5 hours, flip pieces to help reduce sticking.
