Re: Battery in my wrist watch is dead.
Take an eyeglass and examine that contact (you say clip) all the way around till you find where it is going into the movement. You will notice that the ends of the contact is cliped on the small plastic knobs. Take fine pointed tweezers and undo the contact ends by pulling them outwards. That should release the battery.

The Proper way is with a "watch case wrench". They can be purchased for a few dollars on Amazon and E-bay. In most cases unless you are changing many watch batteries the best option is to call around to local jewelers and pawn shops and ask how much to replace a watch battery. In my town it ranges from $30 to as little as $5.99 battery included.
Hi Try resetting it - it worked for me. First, orient your watch face down (with the watch belt buckle opposite you), the new battery in and latched. Second, on the right side battery hold-down latch you will see a small metal circle (~1 mm diameter) with a black dot in the center. Take a small paper clip and touch this metal pad to the metal battery hold-down latch for about 1 second. This will reset the watch. Rotate the tiny donut that clips over the battery so it touches the brass spring that is next to the battery, replace the back plate. 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 electro mechanics of this watch.

You will need to look for any screws holding down a plate over the battery. Sometimes these only need to be loosened and sometimes they have to be removed. Sometimes the plate can be lifter slightly and the battery slide out from underneath. I hope this helps you. Best luck
Most of these resin-case F-series Casio sport watches use a fairly large lithium coin cell battery. Once the four screws holding the watch back are removed, you should be able to just pop off the stainless steel spring clip that holds the cell in place and pull it out, without having to remove any more screws. Be careful when replacing the clip, because it is asymmetrical and goes in only one way. Also be careful not to lose the tiny spring contact that connects the watch movement to the piezoelectric sound element glued to the watch back. If you lose the spring, the watch will still run, but the alarm won't sound anymore.
You need a watchmakers knife or caseback opening tool to open your watch. 1)If your watch has screwdown back, there should be grooves in caseback where you have to put in opener and unscrew that caseback. 2)If your watch has a 'clip-on' caseback, you have to carefuly examine the caseback and find the groove between caseback and watch case (it is called 'the lip'). This is the right point where to insert the blade of wtchmakers knife and open it using pressure and lever action. 3)The safest, but dearest way is to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for battery replacement. You may ask the watchmaker to show you how to do that, so, in future you can do that yourself. Do not forget to rate, please.
Generally, there's a small clip that can be held out of the way with a screw. You may need to hold it back, and tighten the screw in order to insert the battery. It may be enough to hold the clip out of the way.
