Question about Casio Wave Ceptor WV57HA-1AV Wrist Watch
The battery is been hold by a kind of ring, don't want to pry hard, any suggestions please.
As far as removing the clip that covers the battery on the Waveceptor 2735, I found that even my smallest screwdriver was too big but a pin from my wife's sewing machine worked well. I poked it down on the right side of the clip in the small hole then pulled gently to the left using the pin as a lever until the battery popped up. I touched the battery and the little circle with a (-) on it for two seconds and it worked well.

The strap that goes across the battery is hooked down the side of the battery. You need to get a small thin standard screwdriver ( the kind you use for tiny screws) and go down the side of the battery, insert screwdriver where strap is hook, pull away from battery and it should unhook. This watch the battery has to be short circuited by taking tweezers and touching the AC & the battery for 2 secs hope this is helpful. galrygal

The bracket has a square clip hanging downwards. You want to stick the pin in close to and angling towards the battery so that you get the pin inside the clip, then gently pry so that the bottom of the pin pulls the clip away from the battery.
To reiterate, the bracket is all one piece of metal with a 90 degree clip hanging down the side. It's that 90 degree clip that you want to pry the bottom outwards.

I've got the same question, Fredo. Do you have a solution yet?

Yep, the sewing needle worked. Insert straight down in the upper left hand corner and the "hold down" should pop up.

Another thank you - to RonA, this time. The clip does indeed come out, so does the battery. For $4 I have a working watch for another 10 years.

I was trying to lift up the wrong side of the clip ... It actually does "just pop up" when you stick a pin or screwdriver down the correct side. If it seems to hard ... try the other side!
