1)Get the battery out again and check for power. 1,5 Volt batteries should be 1,52V - 1,54V and the 3Volt batteries shold be 3,1V - 3,3V in charge.
2)Take the hardened steel needle or watchmakers screwdriver and clean (scrape) both contacts off any visible residue till they are shiny. aaaaaaaUce dust blower to get rid of scrape-offs.
3)Make sure the contacts are touching the corresponding battery side only and not shortcuting the battery.

Get battery out again. Clean (scrape) all the battery related contacts using steel needle or small screwdriver. Make sure the battery is not underpowered. Refit the battery keeping the right polarity and set the watch.

Why does my Fossil watch battery go dead after 3 months?


Some watches sit for several years before they are sold and if the battery is old or happens to be activated during that time your battery will be close to being shot when you buy it. I would put a new battery in it and see how long it lasts . I would bet that's what happened.

My fossil big tick has stopped working


Lots of possibilities. One is they put in a dead battery, don't laugh. I have seen this several times. Two, the watch has a problem other than the battery and you assumed the problem was the battery when actually it is something else. I have more but these two are the obvious. Find a watchmaker.

I haven't worn my fossil watch (FS 4337 model) for some time & decide to wear it & shook it, adjust it, & it dosn't work. Usually when I don't wear it for about 2 weeks, I shake it...


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.

My Fossil watch worked when I took it off, it just needed a new battery. Now, I tried to replace the battery, and it won't work


Check that the battery is in the correct way up.

Try cleaning the battery with surgical spirit.

If these steps fail, take it to a watch shop.

If this also fails, find you nearest Fossil dealer (Fossil/customer care - store locator

Need a new glass for my fossil watch fossil blue CH2435


This is will take a jeweler or watchmaker to fit with a new crystal.
1st take this watch to the point of purchase and see if they can assist you, sometimes they will surprise you and depending upon the age of the watch may replace.
2nd beyond that usually only independant jewelers will work with fossils, almost all chains will not allow their employees to even change batteries in a Fossil (they are easy to break).

Changing the battery for my Fossil Watch


You have to have a tool to unscrew the back of the watch. I figured this out the hard way. I suggest taking it to a jewler for after I replaced my battery, the stinking thing still did not work. This sounds like a commom problem as I read more about them. Hope this helped.
