Re: removing the back to change battery

The plastic wrist band doesn't have to be cut away. You need to dislodge the spring-loaded end of the pin from the hole in the plastic with the blade of a sharp thin knife.

The you proceed to lift one of the 4 snaps to open the cover. The battery is under a white translucent inside cover.

The original battery was Sony SR621SW.

Pay attention to the rubber seal ring when putting the watch back together.

Re: removing the back to change battery

I had the same problem.
Remove the watch band.
I had to cut the plastic band away.
The plastic was was easily cut.
The back plate of the watch simply snaps away.
No screws.
There are four corner snaps.
Get under one and the others will pop off.

No slot or screw to remove watch back

Check the top around the crystal. Some of those watches came apart from the top of the watch. Generally a few screws to remove. If no screws then the back pops off. Not easy but it may be the way in.
Again, if it's a decent piece go to a jeweler to do the work. Should be under $10.00. to do it.

thank you, gabe.

Change the battery

You need to remove the back of the watch to get to the battery. If the watch is a water proof watch then the back is screwed on. After removing the back take care not to damage the gasket.
If you cannot remove the back of the watch then take it to a watch repairer, they can replace the battery and it won't be expensive.

I have a Steinhausen TW524L Watch how do i change the battery or is this watch automatic it has stopped running.

It's not as easy as popping off the back like some watches to replace the battery. The 4 screws on the top bezel are not the ones to remove. Look at the back side of the watch and you'll see 4 really tiny pinholes. You'll need a jewelers screwdriver small enough to fit into the holes to remove the 4 screws. Once you do that, the two halves of the watch come apart with a little pressure. It takes a little prying to get the case to separate. Once you do that, you'll see the battery. Be careful with the waterproof gasket as you'll need to put that back in the same position to keep the case sealed. The gasket is really delicate. You might consider taking it to a watch maker to change out the battery if you don't have the tiny (and I mean really tiny) screwdriver to remove the 4 back screws.

My battery is running dead . Can I have it replaced ?

Yes, the battery for this watch can be replaced. Timex estimates that the battery should last 2-3 years, but that assumes an "average" use of the Indiglo backlight. If you never use the backlight or audible alarms, your batteries would have lasted longer; heavy use of both would have run the battery down more quickly.
If you want to replace the watch battery yourself, you'll need a very fine philips or flathead screwdriver, the new battery, and a bit of patience. It would also be helpful to have a pair of tweezers, but that's not absolutely necessary. If you carefully look on the back of your watch, Timex usually lists the battery type so that you can buy a replacement battery without first opening the watch. If you can't figure out what the numbers mean, take it to a jewelry counter at Target or Walmart, and they should be able to help you decipher it. I don't know which battery this specific watch takes, but many Timex watches use a #1620 or #2016 3v battery. Look for a number like that on your watch back.
To open up the back of the watch, open the strap so that you have good access to the back. If you have a steel band, you might need to slip out one of the adjustment pins to separate the band into halves. Yes, you might be able to take the back off without this step, but it makes it a lot easier.
Place the watch face down onto a soft surface. I like to use a dark towel, so that if I drop one one of the tiny screws you'll be dealing with in a minute, they won't bounce and you can easily find them again.
Use your screwdriver to loose the back of the watch, one screw at a time. I find it very helpful to loosen a screw, then use the tweezers to pick it up out of the hole. These guys are tough to grab with your fingers! Put the screw in a safe place, then carefully remove the back of the watch. A little black neoprene gasket may be stuck to the back or be floating around--don't lose that!
You should be able to see where the battery is kept. On most Timex watches, there's a metal shield covering the watch and completing the power circuit. Using your screwdriver, gently pry the tabs of this shield away from the watch movement, one tab at a time. Try very hard not to snap off any of the little plastic anchors. On a Casio watch I recently serviced, I had to remove the movement from the watch to get at these little tabs; I don't remember ever having to do that with a Timex.
Once the shield is loose or removed, the battery should slide right out. Replace the battery, and gently snap down the metal shield. Turn the watch over to check whether it's working again. If it's not, you may have to push a little "reset" pin on the watch movement to clear the registries. The back of the metal shield usually has instructions on where that little pin is located. If the watch is already working, you won't need to do this.
Closing up the watch is the reverse of what you did to get it open. Make sure the neoprene gasket is back in place--that's what's keeping sweat and water out of the watch--and carefully set the cover back in place. Tighten the screws in an "X" pattern--i.e., top left, then bottom right, then bottom left, then top right. I get all the screws loosely screwed in before tightening them down in earnest. This watch has a plastic case, so you want to tighten the screws snugly, but not over-tighten them so that they strip out the screw hole.

How to change battery

  • Spread the towel out on a flat surface.
  • Remove the watchband if necessary in order to access the back of the watch.
  • Unscrew the back protector from the watch using the correct size miniature screw driver. Place the screws in a small pile on the towel. Be careful not to drop them as they are difficult to find.
  • Remove the back plate by unscrewing the small screws. There is a tiny spring on the underneath of the back plate. It may be visible, or not. Make sure not to turn the watch upside down or the spring will dislodge.
  • Remove the rubber protector to find the battery.
  • Use sharp point tweezers to remove the clasp covering the battery. There is a small hole at one end of the clasp. Insert one end of the tweezers into the hole to spring the clasp loose.
  • Remove the old battery with tweezers.
  • Insert New Battery and Reassemble Watch
  • Pick up the new battery using regular tweezers and put it into place. Do not touch the battery with your fingers.
  • Replace the clasp over the top of the new battery.
  • Perform a reset by touching the AC contact with one part of the tweezers and the back of the battery with the other part. Hold for a few seconds. Lift the watch carefully and look up at the front to make sure the watch is working. Do not turn the watch over.
  • Replace the rubber cover.
  • Replace the back plate by screwing the small screws back into place.
  • Replace the back protector by screwing the small screws back into place.
  • Reattach the watch band to the watch face.

  • Feel a bit unnerved by this? Find a local jeweler. Best regards.

    How to remove the back of my fossil watch in order to change my battery.

    First you need to determine if the watch is a snap back type or a screw back. If the watch back has a series of equally spaced slots (usually about 6) around it's perimeter, then it is a screw back and you will need a special tool in most cases. You can sometimes remove a screw back using a pair of snipe nose pliers in two of the slots, but unless the watch can be mounted safely in a small vice then this is quite difficult. The back from snap back watches can be removed with a blunt pen knife. If you look carefully around the edge of the watch casing you should see a small indent in the cover. This is where you start with the blunt pen knife, working your way around the edge twisting the knife gently as you go. Eventually the back will snap out of the watch casing
