Take the watch to a jeweller or you can fix it yourself. That pin in the watch is removable. Use the tip of a jewellers screwdriver to push the ridge inwards. You should be able to fold the end of the strap back around it. If not, they will sell you a new strap and fit it.

How do you unlatch the metal piece that holds the battery in?

If you see no screws holding the contact (you say metal piece), follow all the way down to that contact in to watch movement and you will find the point where it is hooked on to a tiny plastic hook.
Take fine pointed tweezers and pull the contact leg outwards. This will release the contact and the battery.

Rate me, please.

WV-57H Watch - how do you replace the strap? I have a new strap for this model and can't work out how to take the old one off and fit the replacement. Thanks

If you look at the watch from the side, you'll see that there's a two-part metal piece on the underside of the watch on each side.  The metal piece is a spring-loaded pin going through the strap which is holding on a larger metal piece.  You need to get another small pin (or an eyeglass screwdriver might work) so you can poke in the end of that spring loaded metal piece, which will allow you to slip off the larger metal bracer.  Then you can poke the spring-loaded pin entirely out of the strap and it will be freed entirely.  
To help you visualize what you are doing, the spring-loaded pin operates similarly to a toilet-paper roll - you need to compress the pin so you can slip off the larger metal bit, then take out the pin, which will free the strap.

Can not open the band to put it on

Take a thin bladed knife and slide it between the watch strap and the buckle part of the watch body. The pin which holds the strap to the watch is spring loaded like a toilet roll spindle. Very gently twist the knife blade to release the pin from the body.

Be warned, getting the pin back into the watch can be very fiddly.

Screen goes blank

I put a new CR2025 battery in my T5e671 Timex and it solved the problem.
The screen no longer goes blank at any time.
PS:Timex manual says "remove battery strap" to replace the battery.
But it doesn't say HOW.-& I couldn't google an answer to that.
Here is how:
The metal strap goes across the middle of the battery and then goes over the edge of it on both sides.
At both edges the metal strap goes over a nylon tab.
One of those nylon tabs is notched, if you put the end of a paperclip in the notch, you can release the metal strap edge that runs under it.
