If you have a Fossil FS4337 Chronograph, shaking the watch shouldn't be doing anything other than exercising your muscles; the movement is a battery-driven quartz movement whose movement is controlled only by whether the stem has been pulled out (stopping the movement and saving power) or whether the battery still has enough power to activate the stepping motors that move the watch hands. Based on the symptoms that you've described, I would suggest that it's probably time to change your watch battery.

Often, when a watch battery is running low but isn't completely dead, pulling the stem into time-setting mode will stop the movement and permit the battery to "rest," giving it (briefly) a bit more reserve amperage to put out when you push the stem back in. That's how you can sometimes get a quartz watch to run for a few minutes after the battery appears to be dead. That may also be why your watch has started running again after you've set the time and date.

Fossil analog quartz watches tend to use silver oxide (usually #377 or #379) batteries instead of longer-lasting lithium batteries. In ordinary use, I would expect a silver oxide battery to provide between 1 and 2 years of service before it needs to be replaced. I can't remember if Fossil chronographs (which also use quartz movements) use a silver oxide or lithium battery. Lithium batteries often provide an additional year or two of service in analog watches, compared to silver oxide cells; digital watches using them supposedly may last as long as 10 years with a lithium battery, assuming you don't use the backlight or audible alarm functions. Note, however, that these batteries are different sizes and different voltages, so you can't substitute one for the other.

Finally, none of this advice applies if you have a Fossil watch with a true mechanical movement in it. In that case, gently shaking the watch may spin the winding rotor enough to start the watch back up again. However, an even faster way of winding those watches is to use the winding / time set crown to wind the mainspring directly instead of relying on the geared-down action of the winding rotor. Automatic watches can bind up if they are not used for a period of time; the lubricating oil used in some of the pivots can harden--or at least provide enough resistance that the movement may require more initial force to start running than to continue running. That behavior usually indicates that it's time to have the mechanical movement cleaned and re-lubricated.

SOURCE: hi! I would just like

If you type ES2453 in google you should be able to find advertisements for this watch, even though it is not on their web site.

I suspect that it is a discontinued model, as all the models on their web site have larger numbers.

SOURCE: Fossil watch battery

It is a 364 battery. You can order these online from many battery outlets, even ebay.If your watch is 5ATM or more, it has a pressure seal, and you might want to send it to the Fossil service centre to have it changed and resealed.

How do you take the back off the fossil watch fs-4023


I have a Fossil and a Nixon watch that have very similar backs. Usually when it has those grooves all the way around, the back just screws off. I know they make some special tools to twist it, but I had luck with gently using some needle nose plyers.

Hope that helps and good luck.

What battery does the fossil fs 3105 watch take


It's actually a lot easier than that video shows. You're trying to represent a watch that is a PDA! To change the battery in your watch, you need to purchase a watch kit on eBay for about $15-$25, purchase the correct battery, watch a realistic video of changing a battery on Youtube, and then you will never need to pay more than the cost of a battery (a few dollars) to change your watch battery ever again! Sending it to Fossil takes time and money and you can do it at home with basic skills!

<P>Thank you for contacting FixYa.</P><P>Unfortunately, unless it is stamped on the back of the watch, or it is in your manual, there is no way of knowing the battery that goes in any watch without the old one, or very accurate sizing of the area it goes in.

I have the same watch Fossil FS-4127 and I too can't find a replacement band. Appears to be planned obsolesence by Fossil. This FixYa site is almost as bad as Fossil, which is all advertisements and no answers whatsoever.
