Fossil watches are very temperamental when it comes to there insides. did you have fossil do the band or someone else? also they sometimes have corrosion from the seals not lasting.

    most batteries will quit sometimes very soon depends on shelf life before you purchased it. i have had customers in the past (rare but happens) that would walk out of out store and come right back in cause the battery had quit we replace it and it was fine. i have about 10 fossil watches personally myself some quite old just change the battery and find somebody that will give you a warranty on it as well

What is the battery number for a fossil am3848


Hello,
We can tell you the battery number you may need for your Fossil Watch, but it is not worth you to change it yourself.
Many people think that replacing a battery to a watch is an easy task, but that is far from truth.
Note that once a watch is opened ( if you can get it without leaving marks all around the case) all circuits are extremely delicate. If you may touch some part with any metal instrument or even with your fingers, you will loose your watch.

Best you can do is take it to be replaced to a watch shop, sure you have one near you.

But let me insist, if you need the battery number, let us know and we will provide.

I have a ladies Fossil watch #AM4168. The battery went bad on it and when I changed it out with a brand new battery and the second hand won't move. I took the battery out thinking I was sold a bad battery...


It is a common logic problem. The watch stopped working. You assumed it was the battery; hence your assumption was wrong. Therefore the obvious answer is that the watch broke and that a battery would not help unbreak it.

My fossil big tick has stopped working


Lots of possibilities. One is they put in a dead battery, don't laugh. I have seen this several times. Two, the watch has a problem other than the battery and you assumed the problem was the battery when actually it is something else. I have more but these two are the obvious. Find a watchmaker.

What type of battery does the Fossil Ch2473 use? I called Fossil and they could not help me, instead they insisted I pay them $15 to replace the battery and wait 2-4 weeks for shipping. However, I...


The vast majority of Fossil analog wristwatches take either a #377 or #379 watch battery. The #379, being slightly smaller, is somewhat more commonly found in women's watches than in men's watches, but I have seen both types used in men's and women's watches alike. However, the Fossil CH2473 includes chronograph functions, which means that you can have multiple motors inside the watch running simultaneously. As a result, it's possible that this watch will require a different / bigger bigger. However, if it's not one of these batteries, or even if it takes a 3-volt lithium battery instead of a 1.5 volt watch battery, it will still be something pretty mundane.

In general, common batteries like the type I expect you'll find inside your watch are commonly found at many drug stores, jewelry store counters at places like Walmart and Target, and even at some dollar stores. Be aware that cheap dollar store batteries are usually alkaline, not silver oxide, versions of the same size battery. Alkaline batteries may work perfectly well in many watches, but they have a somewhat different energy performance curve over time, and, in general, they won't last quite as long as a comparable silver oxide battery. In addition, for reasons I've never been able to figure out, some of the Fossil watches that I've serviced would not function with an alkaline battery--but would work fine when I put in a silver oxide battery of the same size and voltage. I have not been able to see a pattern to predict when this will and will not occur. Lithium batteries, whether "brand name" or generic, should have the same performance curve.

If you do open up your watch to change the battery and don't recognize the battery type/code on your battery, don't give up. Watch batteries have different numbering schemes, depending on the manufacturer. Here's a link to a cross-reference chart that will help you "translate" one code into another. I would suggest starting by looking at the #377 line to see if one of those cross-reference codes matches what you have. However, you may need to look around the chart to get an exact match:

As a final thought, the backs of some Fossil watches are very snugly fitted to their cases. You can generally get them off without too much of a problem, but there's a good chance you may need a jeweler's press to get them to snap back on properly. I've noticed this most with round watch backs; I generally haven't needed a press to close oblong or tonneau-shaped Fossil watches (or some round watches, too). A jeweler's press spreads the pressure evenly around the edges of the watch back and watch case, preventing damaging pressure on the watch crystal, watch movement, and watch back. Clamping the watch in a regular vise to try to press on the back runs a high risk of damaging your watch, and I do not recommend trying that, no matter how frustrated you get. It's much safer (and cheaper, overall) to tip someone with a vise a couple of dollars to close up your watch for you.

I have a Fossil AM-3719 watch. I bought it in October and it just stopped working. Shouldn't the battery last longer than that? Where can I get another battery? I'm located in London, Ontario, Canada.


Before you take any action which may invalidate your warranty, have a word with Fossil costumer service (go to http://www.fossil.com/en_US/shop/customer_care/static/fossil-customercare.html).

All the watches that I have owned ran for more than a year and Fossil may sort it out for you.

First of all visit the FOSSIL site from my tips and tricks. If you can not find the solution there, check out if you have two batteries in your watch. It is quite common to have two batteries in Fossil watches (same do Timex). If nothing helps, you have to visit your nearest watch repair shop.

I need to know if fossil really makes men's watches with lots of rhinestones.


The only one with stones on the case that I was able to find on their web site was a womens watch.

To conduct your own thororugh search go to "fossil.com" and select watches.

The "build your own" site does not show the option you describe.
