It is not kinetic, the watch should run whether it is worn or not. A kinetic watch requires motion in order to wind a mechanical movement. A quartz movement requires a battery and that is all. You might want to change the battery.
mcdevito75 here, Most likely during the battery change you moved the quartz movement away from the contact buttons. Re-Open your watch carefully and make sure when you press the buttons, each button is pressing against it"s spot on the quartz movement.
mcdevito75 here, Your Fossil watch should work with the battery change, of course it will need to be re-set. You"ll have to double check the battery install, make sure the battery contacts are clean, use a piece of paper towel and carefully clean the battery contacts. Hopefully your new battery is not dead. Another thing to check for, is that the buttons contacts are lined up with the quartz movement. While you double check your battery install, carefully press 1 button at a time, and make sure each button is making contact with the quartz mechanism, many times during a battery change to quartz movement may move just slightly but enough to keep the buttons from contacting the movement, this will keep the watch from working. Hopefully 1 or all of these is the answer for your Fossil watch.
mcdevito75 here, The quatrz movement could need a little quartz oil or the quartz movement could be going bad, but foirst check make sure you have the correct battery and that it didn:"t work loose Return to whoever changed the battery to have it checked.
mcdevito75 here, Sadly, once a battery, any battery leaks, it leaks out acid that eats away metal. Once your watch Battery leaked acid, it ate away electrical contacts, wires as thin as hairs, and tiny linkages with--in the quartz movement of your watch, ----- there is no reversal of this acid corrosion. You have 2 choices, 1 and if this is possible, have your watch repair person replace the quartz movement with a new one, if replacement movement is available, and 2 replace the entire watch. Sorry.
mcdevito75 here, You may need to start your watch by pressing the MODE button. Most quartz watches will stop once you"ve changed the battery, of course the possibility is there that the watch quartz has burnt out also. See a small watch repair shop in your area.
Just unscrew the screw at the back if your model have screw if not the other one snap to open.Use a pocket knife then open it look the number battery and replaced it with same number battery. Its you use Renata battery it is swiss 3years to last.
