Does the watch back for a Sharp SHP8903 twist off or pry off? I need to replace the battery.

If the back has notches, it probably is a twist off. Otherwise most likely a pry off. If in doubt, take your watch to a jeweler for battery replacement.

How do i remove the back to replace the battery on this watch

Watch backs are usually either push-fit and simply need to be levered off, or are twist-fit and need to be rotated off. If there are a number of indentations around the rim of the back then it is likely to twist off. You need to get a suitable tool or tools to remove the cover or you will damage the back of the watch. Check on amazon or ebay for watch repair tools. Getting the cover back on is usually harder with push-fit and is more likely to lead to damage without the correct tools.
Or take it to a watch shop and they will replace the battery for you!

some watches have a rectangular ledge on the back which gets contact with your wrist.. the ledge is about half a centimeter in length and you can use a COIN to twist the ledge until the battery cover gets off and simply remove the battery with any thin hard tool - could even be your nail. and viola. for other watches the screw needs to be removed with the appropriate size

How do i remove the back cover to replace battery.

you are going to need something small, i have used in the past, just a butter knife ***BE VERY CAREFUL
You should be able to see a very small tang over lapping the case, put your small butter knife under that and twist/lift at the same time.

How to open the back of Kenneth Cole KC3434 watch to change the battery?

Get a replacement battery for your watch. Some watches have the battery information stamped on the back plate. If yours doesn't, you'll have to wait until you've removed the old battery to see what kind of replacement watch battery you'll need.
Lay your watch face down on a non-scratching, non-skid surface. It may help to clamp the watch to the surface.
Remove the back from the watch. You might be able to pry it off with your fingernail, but you'll probably need a stiff, thin tool like a knife or screwdriver. You can also buy watch repair kits, which have the perfect tools for the job. Check the watch back for a small notch to insert your tool, but not all watches have these.
Remove the battery from the watch once the back is off. You might need to tip the watch over to let the battery fall out.
Insert the new watch battery into the proper space, first double-checking its size against the old battery to make sure it will fit. Press lightly into place.
Replace the back on your watch. Make sure you press firmly to get the back seated snugly.

If this doesnt work, then take to a local jeweler/watchmaker who is equipped with the right tools to assist you.

Best regards.

How to Open a Gucci watch

Most watches are either screwed on and typically have a series of small notches around the circumference of the case back. A special tool is generally called for. Otherwise they are "snap back" . These are simply pressed on. To remove you can carefully use a regular knife in the absence of a "case knife". There is usually a small gap/groove/notch area to insert the balde and lift the back off.
