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.

    The leather belt method worked for me. Thanks a lot for the suggestion. To give you an idea of the pressure I had to apply though, I had to press the watch sandwiched between the leather belt with the heel of my feet and gradually shift my body weight to it until I heard it snap in place.I am about 160 lbs.

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.

    The store I bought my watch from no longer replaces the battery and said to replace it my self. Why you ask....because too many watches were breaking and the store then had to replace them! Who has time to send it back to the factory for battery replacement? I don't!

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.

Trouble replacing rear analog watch cover


mcdevito75 here, Replaceing that back cover can be a real pain. I think I have a tip for you. Place the cover only in the Frig. for about 15--30 minutes, the cold should shrink the cover just a bit so it may be easier to snap back onto the back of your watch.---------- OR, Make sure any cutout on the back of the watch is lined up with the stem, make sure any lip used to pry the back cover off the watch is also lined up with the case of the watch if need be. Place the back cover on the watch back, place the watch on a sturdy table, counter top etc. Crystal up, now with even,even pressure useing your palm, press down on the crystal, this should get the back cover to snap back on. Remeber even, even down ward pressure useing the flat palm of your hand on the crystal, press down slowly and the back cover should snap on. If not, visit a small watch repair shop in your area as they have a special pliers just for this job.

The back doesn't seem to want to snap back in


Try a very small dab of a very light lubrican on the sealing edges.

If you haven't already tried it, press the edge of the watch back using two fingers and move them appart until they meet again.

Season with a lot of parience... good luck!

I just need to replace the battery, how do I open the back, does it twist off or snap off.


Some are twist or snap off..We get so many that are pressure back cover.Sometimes it can be done with a knife and there is a small hindge where you can snap it off with a knife so easy but the problem will be putting it back on because you have to snap it back on with pressure and it can only be done with a machine.If it is a twist that should be easy,all you do is put both thumbs around the lid and press and twist to the right and it should open.This lid should close tight after you put the battery or the water will get into the watch and damage the watch mechanism.

make sure the battery placement compliments the locking spring or wire allowing the back cover to go on. start by applying pressure to one side of the lid and gradually make your way around the perimeter applying steady pressure as you go. afew snapping sounds let you know progress is being made. good luck!

I had the same problem. The thing that was most frustrating is that I have a standard tool to remove and install screw in watch backs, but Timex in its infintie wisdom, decided to make this model withta snap-in back.

I tired usinga a set of adjustable locking pliers with rubber claw covers. I tried holding one side with finger and thumb while using the pliers on the other to no avail.

robatbath's answer about jewelers having a special press led me to a solution. I just happened to have (2) 1.25" steel washers with 1/4 inch holes. I placed one on the face and one on the back. This way I could use the locking pliers (with rubber covers on) to press in the center of each side. The back snapped in fine. You can get washers and pliers at any hardware store.

Removing the back to change battery


The plastic wrist band doesn't have to be cut away. You need to dislodge the spring-loaded end of the pin from the hole in the plastic with the blade of a sharp thin knife.

The you proceed to lift one of the 4 snaps to open the cover. The battery is under a white translucent inside cover.

The original battery was Sony SR621SW.

Pay attention to the rubber seal ring when putting the watch back together.
