If you do not wind the watch, and if it is electronic it obviously has a battery. Very possible even with a new watch the battery has run out. This is especially if the watch was sitting for about a year in their inventory before you bought it.

I am not sure if your watch has a kinetic type movement where it charges the watch, or it is purely an electro-mechanical type movement. I did read it has a quartz referenced movement for the mechanical balance wheel. This would certainly involved a battery. If changing the battery is not the fix you would have to send the watch for service.

I haven't worn my fossil watch (FS 4337 model) for some time & decide to wear it & shook it, adjust it, & it dosn't work. Usually when I don't wear it for about 2 weeks, I shake it...


If you have a Fossil FS4337 Chronograph, shaking the watch shouldn't be doing anything other than exercising your muscles; the movement is a battery-driven quartz movement whose movement is controlled only by whether the stem has been pulled out (stopping the movement and saving power) or whether the battery still has enough power to activate the stepping motors that move the watch hands. Based on the symptoms that you've described, I would suggest that it's probably time to change your watch battery.

Often, when a watch battery is running low but isn't completely dead, pulling the stem into time-setting mode will stop the movement and permit the battery to "rest," giving it (briefly) a bit more reserve amperage to put out when you push the stem back in. That's how you can sometimes get a quartz watch to run for a few minutes after the battery appears to be dead. That may also be why your watch has started running again after you've set the time and date.

Fossil analog quartz watches tend to use silver oxide (usually #377 or #379) batteries instead of longer-lasting lithium batteries. In ordinary use, I would expect a silver oxide battery to provide between 1 and 2 years of service before it needs to be replaced. I can't remember if Fossil chronographs (which also use quartz movements) use a silver oxide or lithium battery. Lithium batteries often provide an additional year or two of service in analog watches, compared to silver oxide cells; digital watches using them supposedly may last as long as 10 years with a lithium battery, assuming you don't use the backlight or audible alarm functions. Note, however, that these batteries are different sizes and different voltages, so you can't substitute one for the other.

Finally, none of this advice applies if you have a Fossil watch with a true mechanical movement in it. In that case, gently shaking the watch may spin the winding rotor enough to start the watch back up again. However, an even faster way of winding those watches is to use the winding / time set crown to wind the mainspring directly instead of relying on the geared-down action of the winding rotor. Automatic watches can bind up if they are not used for a period of time; the lubricating oil used in some of the pivots can harden--or at least provide enough resistance that the movement may require more initial force to start running than to continue running. That behavior usually indicates that it's time to have the mechanical movement cleaned and re-lubricated.

Fossil blue bq9307 Watch stopped, how do I get it running again? I'm told it winds automatically with wrist movement, no battery? Thanks for any help you can give


If it an automatic watch, it usually marked as such on the front or back.

To wind a self winding watch, shake it gently from side to side for a few minutes.

This type of watch thrives on use and if left off for more than 2-3 days it will stop.

I bought a fossil ss blue am3733 on a cruise ship. It has worked perfectly untill the battery died a momnyh later. No one i Dothan ,Al knows **** nabout fossils. I lost my casio in the keys and had a rolex...


All I can say is: RELAX. You are tooooooooo winded, so, need some RUSSIAN lads to calm you down. For a while take a sauna. If you can withstand 110C, you are the man. If you can beat me (175C) you are out of this world. Good luck.

My Fossil Blue AM-3662 wristwatch requires repair.


You do not need to send your watch to FOSSIL for repairs. Just find your nearest watch repair shop and ask watchmaker to replace the coil. It will save money as well.

Can't get back off to change battery, even with special tool


Looking at the Fossil site, I couldn't find "Arkitekt blue" as a description.

I noted that they have a blue one which is automatic (i.e. self winding) and therefore does not need winding - but it does need to be worn to keep the spring wound up.

The Fossil site has a complete list of their models and selecting one gives you all the details of the watch, including manuals.

I suggest you try a search on the web site.

I can't get my head around how to manually wind my Fossil ME1020


You are not supposed to wind the watch, in simply winds itself with the motion of your wrist. A weighted wheel located in the back of the watch winds a spring that powers the second hand. The minute and hour is power by quartz and a battery.
