Question about Timex Watches
What is the exact model of the watch. I have several Timex Electronic watches that might fit your description. If you pop the caseback do you see the old battery inside? Most batteries would have a reference like: CR2016.

I have an Ironman also and I agree it is harder to replace the battery than you think. There are electrical contact surfaces inside that have miniscule tolerances in terms of the spacing they have for clearance. You are expected to press on these things with tweezers to reset the battery (as discussed elsewhere on the web), but if they get bent down, they will short out the circuit (a permanently blank display), or the might be out of alignment (a reset every time you press one of the control buttons on the outide of the watch). If you think this has happened to you, open the case (again) you can use a small tool to carefully lift the metal contact back up off the contact plate. Also make sure the back of the case is on tight as this also plays a role the electromechanics of this watch.
Other than that, I admit I really like the Ironman, so easy to use and set.

SOURCE: How do I release the
I just had this problem, and my 8 year old and I had to fiddle a bit to figure it out.
Just to confirm, you have removed the back cover and taken the watch guts out of the face and strap assembly and are looking at the battery which has a cover over it and maybe a sticker on the cover that says "unlatch to remove battery", with two >'s, one pointing to to each side?
On each side there are two small metal tabs, which surround a small moulded-in plastic piece with an opening in the middle.
The release is in that opening in the plastic piece. You need to fish around in that opening a little to catch the release and push it outward toward the edge of the watch (away from the battery). You need something very small to do this with, like a straight pin. If successful, the cover pops up on one side and then you do the same on the other side.
