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.

What kind of battery does a Stark PH-1114 take?


I have no idea what type, ...but having just replaced a battery for that exact watch, you have 2 options:
1.) Mail it into Fossil (cost is $18.50) you can download & print repair form here:

2) Physically take it into any Fossil store in US or CANADA where they can do it there on site, for $10.00 even.


Hope that helps! ;)

Watch battery


Hi Jason,
About 70 percent of watches take 377 batteries but there is no way to know until you pop the back off. If you take a picture of the back i can instruct you how to get it off. thank you ! Lisa

I am needing to find out what kind or size battery The Fossil Blue AM-3574 takes and where I can purchase them.


The vast majority of Fossil analog wristwatches take either a #377 or #379 watch battery. The #379, being slightly smaller, is somewhat more commonly found in women's watches than in men's watches, but I have seen both types used in men's and women's watches alike.
These batteries are commonly found at many drug stores, jewelry store counters at places like Walmart and Target, and even at some dollar stores. Be aware that cheap dollar store batteries are usually alkaline, not silver oxide, versions of the same size battery. Alkaline batteries may work perfectly well in many watches, but they have a somewhat different energy performance curve over time, and, in general, they won't last quite as long as a comparable silver oxide battery. In addition, for reasons I've never been able to figure out, some of the Fossil watches that I've serviced would not function with an alkaline battery--but would work fine when I put in a silver oxide battery of the same size and voltage. I have not been able to see a pattern to predict when this will and will not occur.
As a final thought, the backs of some Fossil watches are very snugly fitted to their cases. You can generally get them off without too much of a problem, but there's a good chance you may need a jeweler's press to get them to snap back on properly. I've noticed this most with round watch backs; I generally haven't needed a press to close oblong or tonneau-shaped Fossil watches (or some round watches, too). A jeweler's press spreads the pressure evenly around the edges of the watch back and watch case, preventing damaging pressure on the watch crystal, watch movement, and watch back. Clamping the watch in a regular vise to try to press on the back runs a high risk of damaging your watch, and I do not recommend trying that, no matter how frustrated you get. It's much safer (and cheaper, overall) to tip someone with a vise a couple of dollars to close up your watch for you.

Bourght a twist me 1013, when i was not wareing it. it always stop. is that a kind of problem?


I had 2 of these watches.. both of them broke so i have to get a new one from fossil because they cant find replacement parts for it.. there is a battery in it so when your not wearing it the second hand wont turn because it uses the weight in it that you see spinning back and forth but the hour and minute hands should keep the correct time..

Battery burn out


Take your watch to a REPUTABLE watch repair NOT a jeweler. There should be no problem in changing the battery on your watch.
