Question about Watches

POD watch battery replacement. No problem removing back of the watch - (waterproof / 4 small screws), however the battery is held in place under a ''cage'' type of cover and not the usual single spring arm. The cage has 3 legs, 2 at one end & 1 at the other each with a very small screw. Can you offer advice on how to change out the battery ?? Steve.

Unscrew the screws holding that contact. Memorize where each screw was - they can be different in length. Fit new battery, put contact back in place and screw all screws back exactly where they were. After that you may need to shortcut battery's+ and AC point (marked on movement) for resetting your watch. Use tweezers to do that. Rate me, plz.

How to replace second battery in lorus z011 watch


I just replaced this battery myself, it wasn't easy, but is doable. First, you will need some tweezers, a tiny phillips, and a tiny flat blade screwdriver. Totally at your own risk!

- Remove the 4 small screws on the back of the watch
- You will see a large battery under a metal clamp, this is for the back light. Remove the two phillips screws securing the clamp, and put that aside with the battery and screws. The clamp also has a metal flap on the side that acts as part of the mechanism for the back light button.
- You will now see the second battery hiding under the circuit board, it will have a small black circular rubber sticker on it. Remove the third remaining screw (very near the right hand one you have already removed) to take off the circuit board. It is clicked down slightly onto two lugs, so prise carefully at the left and right to free it
- At this point be very careful not to tip the watch upside down. There are two very small brass springs which make contact with the very top and bottom underneath of the circuit board, which now they are removed could easy fall out
- Under the circuit board is a plastic sheet, remove carefully with tweezers
- You are nearly there! There are three flat head screws, I got away with just undoing the two nearest the battery, and the third I loosened off enough to carefully lift the metal up to get the battery out
- Carefully remove black sticker, and put it on the replacement battery instead, and now reverse the entire process. Getting the metal clamp back on to secure the battery, and put the screws back is really quite fiddly, make sure it is help down properly
- Make sure before you put the circuit board back, that the two brass springs are in place. When putting the metal clamp over the larger battery, make sure the metal flap that is pushed by the backlight button is in place properly.

Avoid touching anything inside the watch with fingers, use tweezers to remove screws and parts, and make sure you keep track of which screws went where. Good luck!

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.

I recently changed the battery on my casio 437 watch and now it won't turn on


There is a 437 stamped into the back of the case for one of the two versions (437 and 438) of Casio WR watches, with the 437 being the kind with raised rubbery number buttons. The model no. for the 437, also on the back case is CA-53W, useful for ordering parts (see below). These instructions are for the 437 but should be useful in many cases for other Casio watches, with numbers other than 437 or 438 on the back of the case. For example, the resetting process described in step 5 below appears to be common to many if not all Casio watches. There is no manual on the casio.com website for many watches, including the 437 and 438. There are no instructions for changing the watch battery in the manual for the 437 or 438 either, nor for many if not all Casio watches. If there is a 438 stamped on the back of the case, the chip is the same as on the 437. The buttons on the face of the 438 watch are flat plastic rather than raised and rubbery. The two buttons near the top serve the same function on the 438 watch as the right side buttons on the 437. The left top button on the 438 corresponds to the top right side of case nonindented button on the 437. The right top button on the 438 corresponds to the bottom right side of case lower indented button on the 437. Save time and money by replacing the battery yourself If you send your Casio watch off to have the battery replaced, it will likely cost you about $30 USD. Many jewelers will routinely send a Casio watch off for battery replacement rather than replace the battery themselves, so these instructions may help save you from delays and expense if you do it yourself. Likewise, jewelers may find these instructions useful for satisfying customers by replacing the battery on the spot rather than having to send the watch off to Casio. Materials needed a. 5/64" Phillips head screwdriver (A set of different size screwdrivers in a small black plastic case, including the 5/64" was bought for $1 USD at a local Dollar Tree store in the USA.) b. Watch battery identically numbered to the dead battery on the watch (2016 on 437 case back number) c. Metal tweezers to reset the watch d. Sil glyde gel grease or any other grease, to maintain water resistance f. Toothpick or similar to spread grease in O ring slot g. Ziplock plastic bag or bowl to hold the 4 small screws so they don't get lost Instructions on replacing the battery and resetting the watch 1. Take off 4 back screws, using the 5/64" Phillips head screwdriver. One screw was balky and needed to have the screwdriver handle attached to a vise grip pliars, with the watch held in the other hand and rotated. Putting the screwdriver handle in a vise would also work to stabilize the screwdriver, while turning the watch held in one hand. Set the 4 small screws aside in a ziplock bag or bowl. 2. Remove the red cellophane cover on the battery, held by two tabs cut into the cellophane fitting into a slot on the metal hold down battery strap atop the battery. 3. With a fingernail or toothpick (nothing metal), slide the battery to the side, out from under the metal hold down strap atop the battery. 4. Insert new battery with fingers/fingernails, sliding it into place from the side. The side, with the battery number showing (2016 on 437 case back number) faces outward, just as on the removed battery before it came out. The watch will continue to appear dead, with nothing showing on the display until the electronics are reset in step 5. 5. Reset the electronics by using a pair of metal tweezers to simultaneously touch with metal, the outward facing side of the battery, and the brass terminal in an indentation in the plastic about 4 o'clock and about 1/8" outside the battery diameter. To aid in orientation, there is a barely visible small AC (presumably meaning "all clear") pressed into the metal near the battery and the indented brass terminal at about 4 o'clock. It may be necessary to tilt the watch in the light so the light strikes the AC so it becomes visible. Verify the display is working. Resetting the time will be in step 11. 6. Reinsert the red cellophane cover removed in step 2. It may be necessary to slide a knife or similar between the strap holding the battery down, and the battery, to make room for the two cellophane tabs to be inserted in a small air space between the strap and the battery. (When installed, the cellophane tabs do not prevent current from flowing between the top of the battery and the battery hold down strap.) If you use a knife or other metallic object to open up the strap to battery space to allow entrance of the cellophane tabs, take care not to short the battery against metal parts of the watch other than the hold down strap. Quickly glance to see make sure the display is still working after the cellophane is back in place. If display not working, repeat steps 2, 5 and 6 (remove cellophane, reset watch, reinstall cellophane). 7. Remove the rectangular O ring from the case back removed in step 1, or the case, and coat it with Sil Glyde silicone gel grease or similar, to retain water resistance. White grease or any grease should also work. Set the coated O ring on the inside of the metal case back removed in step 1. The O ring will eventually mate back with the O ring slot in the plastic case. 8. Using a toothpick or similar, coat the rectangular O ring slot in the plastic case with the same grease used to coat the O ring in the metal case back, to provide extra water resistance. Grease is nonconductive, so there should be no damage from shorting if some of the grease gets inside the watch. 9. Wipe hands clean and wash hands and/or use plastic gloves to avoid putting too much grease on the outside of the watch. 10. Replace case back removed in step 1. Screw in the 4 removed screws with your 5/64" Phillips head screwdriver.

What if my small slide over the battery has come off completely? how do i put it back?


It should slide into/under a slot from the side, and be held in place by tension (not familiar with the exact model, so bear with me...). Some covers are held in place with a screw; you'll know this is the case if one end has a hole in it. Eyeglass screw kits are a good source for tiny screws. Hope this helps!

How do I replace the batteries on my Casio Pathfinder PAG40B-2V watch?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Choose a quiet, well-lit room where you can replace the battery in your Casio Pathfinder watch. Prepare a table, desk or other clean, flat surface where you can perform your watch repair. Put down a soft cloth or piece of craft felt to protect the face of your Casio Pathfinder watch from being scratched during the battery installation process.

  • 2

    Set your Casio Pathfinder watch face-down on the soft cloth or craft felt. Use an optical-sized Philips screwdriver to remove the four screws that secure the watch back to the body of the watch. Set the screws aside, but don't lift the watch back.

  • 3

    Slide the watch back off of the body of the watch very slowly. There are three important springs held underneath the watch back; it is essential to remove the watch back slowly to avoid losing them.

  • 4

    Lift the three springs out of your Casio Pathfinder watch using a small pair of metal tweezers. Take note of the length and placement of the springs as you remove them. Set the springs aside with the other disassembled watch components.

  • 5

    Take the black rubber protective disk out of your Casio Pathfinder to reveal an identically-shaped white plastic disk. Remove the white plastic disk and set it and the black rubber disk aside. Use your metal tweezers, if necessary, to lift out the rubber and plastic disks.

  • 6

    Release the battery strap that holds the battery in place in your Casio Pathfinder watch by pushing the battery strap latch to the left. Remove the old battery from your Casio Pathfinder using a pair of small plastic tweezers.

  • 7

    Pick up your replacement watch battery with the small plastic tweezers and insert it into the battery compartment of your Casio Pathfinder watch. Replace the battery strap and push it gently with the tip of your plastic tweezers to snap the latch in place.

  • 8

    Touch the "-" and "AC" terminals on your Casio Pathfinder watch with the tips of your metal tweezers for at least two seconds. This helps ensure that your watch will work properly once reassembled.

  • 9

    Put your Casio Pathfinder back together to complete the new battery installation. Start by replacing the white plastic disk, followed by the protective black rubber disk. Use your small metal tweezers to replace the small watch springs in their correct locations. Replace the back cover of your Casio Pathfinder, insert the four screws and tighten them with your optical-sized Philips screwdriver.

  • 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.

    Battery replacement procedure for Casio 901 DW-5600?


    hi, if the back plate on the watch the part that is against your wrist has four screws holding the silver back plate onto the actual watch then you need to undo these four screw, once undone you lift the back plate off and then this gives you access to the battery, the screws are small philips (cross head screw) so you will need a small screw driver, their is also a little bracket that holds the battery in place you can either push this over to allow the battery out or undo the small screw that holds this bracket in place this will then allow the battery to fall out,

    If their are no screws in the back plate then all you need to do is get a very fine flat head screwdriver and look around the edge of the back plate and you should see a little bit on one of the edges that allows you to put a screwdriver into to allow you to lever the back plate off if it has no screws then its just a push fit so just pry the back off and this will give you access to the battery then like above the battery will be held in place by small bracket undo this then remove the battery.

    when fitting the new battery make sure you dont touch the top and bottom of the battery as this will flatten it really quick so just push it in place then refit the bracket then either push the back plate back on or screw it back on depending on the type of back plate once this is done you watch will be working again

    I wish to replace the battery myself, how do I do this?


    Polar tells its customers to send watches to them for battery replacement. But the Polar Fitwatch is too old (may have been introduced in 1997?), and they no longer support it. So the only solution is to replace the battery some other way.

    For most people I'd say go to a store that sells watches, they'll replace the battery for a fee.

    For those who are handy, you can replace it yourself. I did mine yesterday.

    The battery is a common type - CR 2032.

    You'll need a small screwdriver, philips type, I think. Maybe around 00, or thereabouts. And you need tweezers, preferably with a rubberized grip.

    There are four screws holding the back plate. Remove three, and loosen the fourth. Slide the back plate aside.

    I unscrewed the screws, then used the tweezers to take them out. They're a bit small for your fingers to get a good grip on them.

    The battery is held by a plastic holder that's held by 4 screws. These are (to my eyes) slightly smaller than the ones holding the back plate, so please keep those separate - and keep track of all the screws.

    Remove the plastic holder, and make sure you keep track of the spring that's between the holder and the back plate. It'll likely fall out when you turn the holder over.

    The holder keeps the battery with a small prong, but it's easy to slide out the battery. Replace the battery, getting the orientation right, making sure you don't touch either side with your bare fingers. This part is easier than it sounds.

    Replace the holder, and of course you noted beforehand what the orientation was, so you get it in the same position.

    Use the tweezers to drop each screw into its hole, then screw it in.

    By this time, the watch will probably start beeping when you tighten one of the screws, because you depress one of the buttons on the front.

    Put the spring back in its hole, then slide the backplate back into place, and drop the screws in place with tweezers and tighten one by one.

    You should be able to find a manual (which doesn't cover battery replacement procedure) by searching for polar fitwatch manual.

    How to change my battery on my fossil watch?


    when you look at the back are there three small rectangular indents evenly spaced on the edge on the back? If so you'll need a special tool for opening waterproof watches. the tool adjusts to fit the three indents then press down as you turn counterclockwise. you can find the tool on amazon.com or your local jewelry store. make sure the gasket is in place and not damaged before screwing the back on.

    here is a link to the tool
