There are 2 ways that Fossil closes the caseback on their watches.  It is either a 'pop-off' caseback that you will need to pry off.  Get something very small and thin, such as a small flathead screwdriver.  There is usually a small groove somewhere around the edge of the caseback where you can insert the blade.  The other type screws off.  You will need to unscrew the caseback.  You can determine if it screws off by looking for 6 notches around the outside edge of the caseback.  You will use these notches to insert a tool to rotate the caseback off.  Without a specialized tool called a watch-wrench, I suggest bringing it to a store such as Precision Time or Tourneau.

Purchased a stainless steel Pulsar LED in 1975 and just found it. I need to replace the batteries (takes 2) and am not sure which ones will work and neither did the jeweler that opened it up. The old...


Any 1.5v cell will work as long as it fits into the cell compartment since all watch cells except for lithium and some rechargables are all 1.5volts. If I remember corectly I just always use 357's without an adapter but I think this adapter takes up the extra space in the cell compartment since they are a bit smaller than the original 355's. Alternately you can buy RW-25 Adapters, they are a one time purchase, and will last a lifetime. TheSR44/357 will typically last over a year. At the end of its life, simply replace the expired SR44/357 with a fresh one.

How do I open the back of the watch to replace the battery & what type battery does it take? Thanks Ian Lawes


Usually the back of a watch is sealed with simple screws. Just unscrew them with a jeweler's screw driver and it will open the battery compartment of the watch.

The battery depends on what type of watch you are using. The most common batteries for watches are about less than 3/8 of an inch.

My Timex Indeglo watch does not have any means of opening the watch so I can replace the battery. It kept perfect time when it ran, but now it does not run at all. Is it supposed to be a disposable watch...


  • If you don't already know what size battery you need, you can find this information on the back plate of your watch. Once you have your replacement battery, you will need to open the back of the watch to gain access to the battery compartment. Depending on the watch, the back plate will either screw off or be attached by a few small screws. If attached with screws, you will need a set of precision screwdrivers such as a jewelry or eyeglass kit.

    Inside the battery compartment, you will see the battery is held down by a clip. Carefully remove the clip and eject the battery. Insert the new battery and replace the clip. If the battery clamp indicates you should do so, quickly press the reset button twice. Then reattach the back of the watch. If the watch display remains off after replacing the battery, press all buttons at the same time to reset the display.

    Can you change the battery in the chest strap for polar f6


    There are two types of straps for Polar:

    1) hard rubber/ solid - These can not have the battery changed.

    2) soft strap with connector in middle - these you can change the battery.

    If you have the soft strap, it will have a small hard around 3 inch long block that "snaps" onto the strap to connect it. These have a battery compartment. Turn it around and you will see the outline for the battery compartment. These are not always easy to open, and the batteries are a little harder to find. Take it into any watch repair and they should be able to pop a new battery in for you pretty easy.

    There is a link on my tips and tricks page to get manuals for Polar products, the T-31 wearlink is the product we are talking about, it has the how to change the battery and battery type.

    Cannot open the battery compartment on my suunto x6 without breaking it....any ideas?


  • Turn the Suunto over to view the backside. Insert the quarter in the coin slot located on the battery compartment cover. Turn the coin counterclockwise to the "Open" position marked on the back of the case.
  • Remove the battery compartment cover. Remove the old battery from the battery compartment. Make sure the o-ring and all surfaces are clean, dry and not damaged. Do not stretch the o-ring!
  • Place the new battery into the battery compartment (negative side down, positive side up). Make sure the o-ring is in its place, as to keep the Suunto waterproof. Place the battery compartment cover back onto the backside of the watch.
  • Insert the quarter back into the coin slot and turn the coin clockwise to the "Close" position marked on the back of the case.

  • If this doesnt work take to a jeweler who has tools.

    HOW TO CHANGE BATTERY


    mcdevito75 here, Depending on your watch itself, Basically you"d remove the back cover, then release any hold down linkages on the battery, then replace the battery, hold down linkages and cover. The BEST BET is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this battery replacement as it may take special jewelers screwdrivers to change the battery.

    Around the outer edge of the watch there will be an indention. Pry open with a small screwdriver. Your internal compartment should be right there.
