Question about Fossil Sport Collection watch #AM4168 Watch for Women

1 Answer

I have a ladies Fossil watch #AM4168. The battery went bad on it and when I changed it out with a brand new battery and the second hand won't move. I took the battery out thinking I was sold a bad battery and they tested it at the store and it was fully charged and good. I put it back in and the watch still won't run. What am I doing wrong?

    "I would agree with you if it were not for the fact that when I first put the battery in it works for 2 seconds. A voltage tester shows that the battery goes to good and then drops down right away. Is it possible that the watch is shorting out somehow between the positive and negative?"

It is a common logic problem. The watch stopped working. You assumed it was the battery; hence your assumption was wrong. Therefore the obvious answer is that the watch broke and that a battery would not help unbreak it.

SOURCE: Brand new watch won't work

Check your users manual if your watch have two batteries. If yes, you need to replace digital part battery.
If your watch has only one battery, your digital screen or plate is defective. Bring it back to the retailer and ask to replace for the decently working watch.
But first of all try to fiddle with all pushbattons- sometimes it helps.

SOURCE: Cannot get the cover back on Fossil watch after changing battery

First open your bracelet. Then align groove in caseback with crown and press that side lightly into the case. Then using both hands(one from dial side, another from back) press as strong as you can.
If this do not work:
Get mens leather belt and place it on flat surface(table top). Lay the watch face down on that belt. Again adjust caseback as before and using your weight push caseback down with both hands.
NEVER use hammer or similar.
If none of these works- go and see your nearest watchmaker.

SOURCE: remove the winding stem/crown.

There is a tiny point (end of small metal piece called setting lever) on the left side of the stem (on watch movement, very close where the stem is entering the movement).
You have to push that point down with a metal pin or tweezers. Crown (winder) must be pushed in to normal position otherwise you will not be able to put the stem back properly.
So, do as follows:
1) Push the crown in,
2) Lay the watch down on flat surface and push on setting lever point,
3) While holding setting lever pushed in- extract the setting lever by gently pulling crown out of watch.

Brand New Watch second hand won't move. won't keep time.


The watch has a problem in the timing module and the second hand won't move (a cog wheel issue) this is clearly a manufacture defect that can not be remedied and should be returned since it is under warranty.

mcdevito75 here, Look for a small watcg repir shop in your area. It could be the mechanism is going bad. If you changed the battery for this problem and you have the same problem, then the quartz is ging bad, (the mechanism)

mcdevito75 here, Just had the battery changed, if the watch was running fine before the last battery died, and now with this battery change the watch can"t keep time, try another battery as any Battery can be weak just from storage.

Second hand doesnt move. The ''stop watch'' second hand moves instead of the ''main'' second hand. also the stopwatch feature doesn't work. My watch is a Fossil Blue Titanium model TI-5071


Sounds like a job for Fossil!

Go to their web site "www.fossil.com" and at the bottom of their page is a menu which includes "store locator".

Not sure what parts should be moving on new Fossil Me1020 watch.


I have a Fossil Twist ME1011, basically the same idea behind the one you have. What happens is there is a weighted third-circle that is in the back of the watch behind the battery (you can't see it) that spins a spring (the spring is the bottom seethrough part that ISN"T moving!) the spring then moved the UPPER seethrough part, which in turn spins the second hand!

IF the second hand stops working, carefully take the back off the watch and you'll see the weighted third-circle that I was talking about. It should spin, and in the middle there is a tiny flat head screw. The screw can get loose, so gently tighten it and the second hand should work again!

Hi, My ladies black and siver ladies bracelet watch is not keeping time. first the plate in the face kept moving position according to the movement of my wrist. Then it stopped keeping time, so I took it...


I would send it to Fossil anyways. You say the plate is moving, I'm thinking that's the dial (the thing with the Fossil logo and # on it) That is deffinantly under a warrenty. Fossil is pretty good with helping even if you don't have the paperwork, and don't live in the United States. Look them up on the internet, and if you can call first they will give you a # so when you send the watch they already know what to do and can start fixing your watch faster. Tell me what happens , or if I can assits you further. Good Luck!!!
