You have three sources of energy.
Solar/Light energy: expose the watch to direct sunlight.
Battery: replace a spent battery with a fresh one.
Kinetic or Automatic: the watch gets its energy from the movements of the arm on which it is worn. . It must not be put in some drawer and forgotten.

Dropped watch on floor and doesn,t work.

Simmon, Try to take the back off watch, and remove and reinstall battery. The watch battery some times looses contact when dropped or hit sharply. I have had to do this on different watches that have been dropped.

Can not turn on

Then it needs a new battery or some sort of repair. The button on the face turns the monitor on for use, if this doesn't work, then you need to replace something.

Need to replace battery in my Colibri pendant watch. Can't figure out how to open case to change it.

Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Place the tip of your pocket knife in the slot on the back of the watch. Pry the back off.

  • Take your tweezers and grasp the metal piece that is hiding the battery.

  • Once that metal piece is out the battery should come out too.

  • Put the new battery in and cover it with the metal piece.

  • Put the back of the watch back on and snap it into place.

  • Best wishes. Jewel

    Swatch Irony Battery replacement will not work

    mcdevito75 here, I am thinking your watch ran fine before the battery change. It sounds like the new battery is not makeing good enough contact, you can try, removeing the battery and cleaning the contacts in the watch carefully with a Q tip, dip the Q tip in anything containing alcohol cologne, rubbing alcohol, perfume wet the Q tip good, then sqeeze most out of the Q tip as not too saturate the battery contacts, also clean the battery itself, the oil on your fingers could give it a poor contact on the watch. The stop watch section doesn"t take as much battery power as the second hand. You may also be able to jump start your watch also, You"ll need a needle and a magnifier glass, With the back off your watch, right in the middle of the movement, just below where the stem (winder) goes, you"ll just see part of a little gear, this is the hour hand gear, see if you can gently move that gear just a fraction, place the needle between the teeth of the gear and try to move it as gentle as possible then se if the gear will move on it"s own., be very carefull with the movement. Swatch watches are collectables. If you don"t feel comfortable doing the above, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for help.

    Try to use a piece of tape to cover on the battery, this is a way to do the insulation to prevent bad contact.
