Lots of battery powered items including some watches I have seen have a battery fitted but insulated with a small piece of thin clear plastic that must be removed to allow operation.

Manufacturers want the original battery to provide a reasonable lifespan even though such items are often in transit/warehouse stock for a while before being sold.

In the case of a waterproof or water resistant watch the back would need to be removed for access and that usually needs a wrench and sometimes a holder.

Where can I bay the movement of this watch and what is the cost?

Take it to a watchmaker, a real one not these junk places you see in the mall. He can order or repair most watches and knows the brands. They are getting harder to find due to throw away one being sold today. Just 40 or 50 years ago people had them repaired.

My daughter got the watch as a gift, and we can't get it open for her to put her hand through it. Is there a specific catch or trick to opening the band and make it work? Thanks.

I need to know what model/brand the watch is.

check the sides of the clasp if there is a button. Sometimes it might just be tight and needs a good pull

Watch with scratches purchased for a christmas gift for my husband manufactiure defect very upsetting

I found a really good scratch remover on E-bay. Its just a small tube. You just wipe a tiny bit on the watch and rub with a cloth. It makes it look brand new. Just search for screen repair or watch screen repair on E-bay.

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.
