Question about Fossil Sport University of Texas LI2084 Wrist Watch
We were able to snap off the back and replace the battery but now can't get the cover back on.
First open your bracelet. Then align groove in caseback with crown and press that side lightly into the case. Then using both hands(one from dial side, another from back) press as strong as you can.
If this do not work:
Get mens leather belt and place it on flat surface(table top). Lay the watch face down on that belt. Again adjust caseback as before and using your weight push caseback down with both hands.
NEVER use hammer or similar.
If none of these works- go and see your nearest watchmaker.

That gave me a pointer , it didn't work for me but instead i put the watch face into the leather belt then used a screw down clamp and slowly tighted it until the back clicked into place , many thanks for the ideas

I used to work for the Fossil company for several years. This is the problem..NEVER replace the watch battery yourself. Why not you ask? There are tools that are made especially for taking the back off of the watch and putting it back on. Also, when the back of the watch is taken off, silicone is used to put a seal along the case and caseback, this is done to "re-seal" the watch so that water does not enter your watch. If you do it yourself you also void your warranty...you can either send in your watch back to the company or take it to your nearest Fossil location.

I used a belt and put it in a vise!! heard a "pop" - I thought the watch face broke, but it was the back snapping back on. I may not try this again.....

Not only Fossil watches, but all "snap" on backs are replaced using a watch press. Small handheld vices work too. A C-clamp will work but be sure to protect the crystal and turn slowly! A distinct "snap!" will tell you when it is back in position. Check your local hardware...

With the above tips that are accurate, clear, and all uncleanness on the rubber seals on the edges of the lid and the housing in which it rests. then before the closing of, apply edge of the cover and rubber gasket with a thin layer and a very small amount of petroleum jelly or similar mild fats that will help sealing but also easier to close the cover.
