Question about Casio G-Shock GW300CA-1V Wrist Watch
My Casio watch (subject) does not recharge. It will shows a blank face.
Hey all. The charge provided by the solar cells on the watch only really extend the life of the battery. The total run time of a battery depends on how the watch is used... backlight requirements etc. The battery will be depleted and need to be replaced.
Here is a site that has good instructions on how to change the battery in your G-Shock watch.
If you want to ensure you still have a the same water resistance rating, I do suggest that you take it to a watch guy to have it replaced for you. They clean switch contacts also and you keep water resistance rating. Good Luck and vote this as a "FixYa". Cheers

Can someone explain how I get the silver tab/cover that is directly over the battery of the Casio 2608 GW-300 off. I can see the battery, but I am not sure how to remove or raise the tab that holds the battery is place so that I can remove the battery for replacement. thank you for your help.

Can't live in the dark all the time. I found that I need to keep an eye on the charge level bars and at times even put the watch into sunlight (off the wrist) to charge up. Had mine for about 5 years now and am aware that eventually the battery will need replacing. Still strokin' along tho once I figured out that especially in the winter months I've gotta keep an eye on charge level.

I have a casio GW300 (2608) and it needs a battery....I checked Radio Shack They said they stocked the Battery.....Heheh....They DON'T.....Their battery is the wrong one....Only the Panasonic 1616 will work. Radio Shack didn't even know about the "capacitor battery"......Beware !!!
