    How do you get the back on the watch.

    Is there a special tool?

    The battery was easy to replace, but getting the

    back on is another story.

    The last time I got a battery it cost $40

    The battery itself costs about $3

    I'm in the wrong business

Yeah there is a special press used to get the back on. Is your watch a flat back, flat crystaled watch? Let me know I may be able to help you.

It will either unscrew if evenly spaced notches exist around the cap's edge if threaded or snap off if a small cavity exists beneath the cap's edge to insert a jeweler's screwdriver.

Replacing Battery Cap on Watches.

Watch covers can sometimes be tough to put back into place after replacing a battery. The caps are made to fit snuggly. This is especially true if the watch is water resistant.

WORD OF CAUTION: Because you've already opened the watch, it may no longer be water resistant. You may have also voided your warranty, so be careful.

Here are a couple of tips that might help.

Hold the watch at eye level and check that there is nothing protruding out of the watch like a tab, latch, or the battery. Be sure the battery is seated properly and the tiny latch (on some watches) is in place.

1. A small block of wood works best because it allows the edges of the watch with the band hinges to not be in the way. Cover the wood with a soft cloth like a sham cloth or felt. Place the block on a low table or on the floor. With the cap in place as evenly as you can hold it, carefully turn the watch face up and place it on the block. Then place the heel of your palm on the face of the watch, and place your other hand on top as though you were performing CPR. Now gently lean forward and allow the weight of your body to compress the cap into place.

2. If Number 1 didn't work, don't panic. Be happy, it means you're not heavy enough. So get someone heavier or stronger to help you.

3. You could remove a shoe and gently step down on it with your heel.

As a last resort only...use a heavily padded pair of pliers to squeeze it back into place.

I hope this helps

How remove watch back

Hi, I have lately been going through several lazy watches. I finally bought a really nice second hand watch. The battery didn't work, so I took the older battery (a couple of months old), removed the backs on both watches. I knew one of the watches was just dead, and the battery had to be o.k. Guess my new/old watch is working really well. Sometimes we can save a bit, by using our heads, and trying to fix things ourselves. Try it, especially if one of the watches isn't working anymore, and you know that the batter should be fine. It was just fine, and I'm less broke from another repair. Good Luck!

Garmin fr60 footpod

Read this BEFORE you buy a new Garmin footpod because of non-detection issues after replacing batttery.

My battery died and after changing it with a new one I've not been able to detect the footpod with my 910xt until now. I notice that in the cap or lid of the footpod where the battery sits before closing it sits a white piece with contacts for the battery. I had inadvertently taken this out when replacing the battery, which is fine BUT you have to put it back in a certain position. If you look very closely at the cap where the battery sits you will notice there are tiny grooves where the contacts should sit into. As soon as I line these up with the white contact piece, voila! Footpod was immediately detected. Try it if you are having issues after replacing a new battery.

How do I put the back of the wrist watch on.

You probably need to go to a watch repair professional. Any business that replaces watch batteries should be able to help you. They have a special press designed to support the watch safely while they snap the back onto the case. This sometimes takes quie a bit of force and rqeuires that the watch case and back plate be perfectly aligned.
