    I've changed many watch batteries and this one did cause me a little problem. I tried the jewelers screwdriver and a paper clip as i didn't have a pin. That didn't pop it loose. I ended up just taking my thumb and pressing down on the clip towards the green part and the clip came right up. It didn't even require much pressure and no tools. Hope that helps.

    The answer still isn't very clear. Mine is a 3504 (WV-58A). I basically broke off the plastic retainer on mine (I heard it fly out). I went ahead and replaced the battery anyway, then held the battery cover down while I replaced the back and put the screws back in. It's still working, 10 minutes later. Oh well, it's a $28 watch from Wal-Mart. A pretty poor design if you ask me. Why not just use a screw (like the ones on the cover) to hold the battery cover down?

  • dukeisduke Sep 20, 2010

    Okay, now after thinking about it, I think I understand how it works. There's a notch in the black plasttic retainter, and you want to put the pin in that notch, then move the pin so that you push out from that notch, The battery goes down in a square "U" shape, under the black retainer. The object is to push the bottom of the "U" forward, out from under the black retainer, so that it disengages. Then when you replace the battery, puching the cover down causes it to snap back under the retainer.

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.

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!

How do I remove back to replace the battery


There are either recesses to grip and unscrew the whole back panel, or a small lip to pry it out. Just remember to have the o - ring in place when you put it back together

How to replace battery


Some watches the back screws off some have to carefully pry the back of with a knife. Once in look for anything that holds the battery in. Carefully remove the battery and check the number on back for replacement. If it has anything holding the battery in place it is easy to break. If the watch is expensive or has sentimental value take it to a watch repair or a jewelry store for replacement.

How do i change a lego watch battery?


I used this website How to Pry off Watch Backing Without Proper Tools all you need is a small screwdriver. There is a tiny tab on the back of the watch you must pry off gently, then you will probably need same screwdriver to get the battery out, again, gently There is no need to pull out the knob on the side of the watch or take off the timer ring from the face. Once you replace the battery, the back snaps back on fairly easily.

We had a c3p0 watch and the battery is an sr626sw which you must source online.

How do I change the battery in my Casio F-105


When I didn't see an answer, I tried it anyway since I already had the battery and little to lose. Undo the 4 small screws holding the back on (careful - don't drop them). Be careful to keep the small rubber gasket around the edge in its grooves. Do not take the workings out of the watch. There is a small silver arm running across the back over to a cream colored plastic piece with 3 grooves in it. Pieces of the arm are in the outer 2 grooves. Use something small to pry open the arm using the middle groove . Peel it back just a little and replace the battery. The watch should now be working. Snap the arm back in place, be sure the gasket is in place, put the back on,
and screw in the screws. Simple when it works.

mcdevito75 here, Those 4 screws hold the back onto your Timex. Do not try to pry off the back cover, rather you"ll need jewlers screwdrivers to un--screw that back cover to replace the battery.

I have a cheap pocket watch that needsa new battery, and i do not know how to open it. does not look like the kind of back that wil pop off,could it be a screw on type?


Pocket watches are 99% with the back snap-on/sanap-off opening. Never came across the screwback. Get the knife with the solid blade, insert the blade in the groove between the case and the caseback and push it in quite hard using lever action (pry up). At the same time make sure the blade do not slip into the movement, as it will damage your watch.
If there is no groove between the case and the caseback, then watch must be opened by removing bezel (metal ring holding glass in place). Open the same way as for the caseback, just be VERY carefull, as any slip of the blade will leave the marks on dial.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Can't get back off


What kind of back do you have? Does the back have 5 little notches on it? If it does it is a screw-off back. With this kind you can use a needle-nose pliers and turn it counter-clockwise and it will come off. If it dosn't have the notches, looaround the back and the watch casing and look for a little lipp or open notched area and take a sharp strong knife and pry it up. If this is a expensive watch, some have a seal that holds the back in place and dosn't really have a notche .Use a razor blade to start it , and then a sharp knife to open compleatly. If you still have problems, please let me know. Good Luck!!

Cant get back off


You need a very thin knife but I would not suggest you do it yourself. Remember, as hard as it is to get off, it is almost as hard to get back on. Fossil watches are tough to change the battery for, you also have to be careful of the crystal, they break easily.

I would suggest you just take it to a jeweler and pay the $6-$10. for them to do it.

Hope this helps.
