You may have
arrows inside bracelet.Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and start to unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet,make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Don't forget to rate, please.

The Li2248 is the original kaleido watch and takes a single flat round inexpensive CR2016 battery. It is worth replacing it as they usually last for many many years, unlike the newer Kaleido two watches that take two batteries that together only last about a year. Walmart will usually let you borrow their tool to remove the watch. This one is very easy to remove with the tool. Walmart will likely not remove it for you since they did not sell it to you but I have been to many Walmarts in many states to readily loan the tool for you to use at the counter. IT is a special adjustable wrench that will set in the indentations on the back of the watch and then rotate counterclockwise to unscrew the back off. Once inside, you do need a very tiny screwdriver to LOOSEN, do not remove, the screw that holds the bracket against the battery. Once the screw is lightly loosened the bracket slides out and away from the screw and you can then easily remover the old and place in the new battery. You then retighten the tiny screw and then screw the back of the watch back onto its case by hand at first and then with the watch tool to tighten it. There is little chance of damaging the watch or loosing your waterproofing if you can get access to the watch wrench.
I have just opened a blog site devoted to answering questions about Fossil and gametime sports watches especially the sport logo watches. The blog site is sport logo watches blog at http://sportlogowatches.storeblogs.com/ I am putting together a pictorial on how to replace the batteries in the Kaleido II watches but this is quite a bit more challenging than yours. Good Luck!
