Where to find batteries for relic watches?


Relic watches use common internal movements and common batteries. They can be found at most drugstores, radioshack and jewelry stores. The trick is getting the back off without damage. Best bet, jewelry store.

Need to replace battery on sportline watch the number on back is 4136


Most likely a CR2032 Lithium, the how part is take off the back, remove the battery holder and old battery. Observe the polarity so you put the new one in correctly. You may need to do a reset which is very difficult to try and tell you what to do but none the less may need to be done. Put everything back making sure the gaskets are aligned properly. You will probably need a very small phillips screwdriver. This is actually my second recommendation. My first is take it to a watchmaker that does hundreds of these every year.

Time to replace the battery, but cannot manage to remove the back cover. Any special tricks? I'm familiar with using sharp knife blade to do this, but it's not working. Thanks!


You defenately need a watch case opener.

It can be more than difficult to open a watch case with a sharp knive/screwdriver without destroying it.

A case opener can be the only solution.

Otherwise you'll have to bring your watch to a professional to get the battery replaced.

I changed the battery in the f6 . I had erratic readings. Now watch seems fine but it wont read heart rate,,,,I get no heart beat at all .


Check out my tips and tricks section for a guide on troubleshooting heart rate readings.

One other possibility if you changed the battery yourself (never recommended) is that some damage or moisture has gotten into your watch and made it impossible for the watch to read heart rate. This is a more common reason than you think and why all manufactures of Heart Rate monitors and other types of watches have you send them in to their authorized service centers.

My Timex has N8 on the back. I have replaced the battery, but am unable to snap the back in place again. Is there a trick to it?


take it to a jewlers shop, they have a special press to smash those SOBs back on. Its almost impossible to do it without a press, and you risk damage to the case/crystal, go on and spend a few dollars, its good for the economy too.

Take it to your local jewelry store, they will sell you a battery and install it for you. Watch how they do it for the next time.

Can't get back on watch


Some of the watch casebacks need a special tool (little press) to fit it back as human finger strength is not enough to close it back.
You need to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help. It is quick and easy operation, but without this tool allmost impossible.
Do not try to use any inappropriate tools (such as a hammer or similar) to force caseback back on as you can easily damage watch case, caseback or even movement.

Replacement battery for DKNY NY1050


I found a "battery" website that had some suggestions that should be typical of any snap back case watch.
http://www.online-batteries.co.uk/whichb...

specifically they said that when you try to press the back on it must be flat (not one edge down as I had been trying) Put the watch face down on a non scratch surface and press with both thumbs evenly. If that doesn't work a press will be needed. If you have a vice a couple of blocks of wood to distribute the load on the front and back may work, otherwise take it to a jeweler with the proper equipment.

The thumb routine didn't work for me. I have a vice but figured many wouldn't so I tried something else first. I put the watch face down on a piece of wood. I found a small 2" long scrap of wood (3/4" x 1.5" approx) that spanned the back. I centered the back (aligned properly) placed the block of wood squarely and centered across the back and tapped the end of the block with a hammer. First try didn't work, second one did. I used a rubber mallet as the hammer but a regular hammer or other heavy object would work. The trick, I think, is to get everything lined up and square so the blow is centered and even.

Also, I'd suggest cleaning the back and the groove in the case and be sure the rubber gasket is properly positioned. This will give you the best chance of retaining the waterproofing. And remember to check that the watch is running before you do this. Some need to be reset (usually with a very small screwdriver or pin) after replacing the battery. There should be a small hole with some printing next to it. You may need a magnifying glass to see/read it.

Hope this may help you;
