You need a watch case press/pliers to do the job right without damaging the watch. You can find them on ebay or, just take it to a watch shop and let them do it. Don't forget to replace the rubber gasket if there was one. If you reuse the existing one the watch will leak and be ruined if it gets wet.

How do I change a festina watch battery w no screws?

Many watches the back panel (that rest againt your wrist) pops off. Look for an indention, if you see one place a small screw driver in it and pop off the cover. Some also have nothes lining the diameter of the back plate, those are made to screw off, there are special tools to accomplish this task. You can use small tools to rotate and release the rear covers on this type of watch but you must be very caseful not to scratch or damage the watch surfaces. Most watch stores can replace the battery for you for free or really cheap.

How do you change a watch battery

Pretty sure you just pop off the back, take out the old battery and put in a new one. Stores that sold watch batteries use to do it for you, some don't now. Liability reasons they say.

I bought a watch and we can't get it to work. We think the battery needs to be changed.

If you take a look at the back of the watch, look for screws holding on the back plate. If there are screws (usually, if they are there there is one in each corner -- unscrew them. If there are no screws in the back of the watch, look VERY carefully at where the backing for the watch connects to the front piece of the watch. There should be a small indentation somewhere along the rim -- use a knife or a small screwdriver in that groove and pop the watch backing off.
Once you have the back of the watch off, you will see the battery right there. Sometimes they just pop out (held in by the watch back) ... sometimes there is a small piece of metal holding it in (in which case you should try to rotate the metal piece off the battery -- don't bend it).
Once the battery is out, take it to a store that sells watch batteries and match the battery type exactly (a lot of watch batteries look the same, but you need an exact match). Put the new battery in, cover it with the metal tab (if there was one) by rotating the tab back over the battery like you found it. Put the watch backing back on (and replace the screws if there were any).
Hopefully, that will kick start your watch for you, and you should be all set :-)

How do I change battery on my gametime watch? how do I remove back casing?

My GAMETIME watch has a back which just pops off. Once in the battery compartment, you will see plastic disk, with a molded frame. This just simply pulls off, and is not secured in place. You should not have to pry it.

Once this is removed, the battery is revealed. My model takes a SR626SW. To remove the cell, use something small to get under the exposed side. You should be able to pop the cell out without much force.

Before you replace the battery take this opportunity to clean the rim where the backing was. Carefully install the new cell, and replace the cover.

We cannot remove the back plate and there are no screws. The person who sold us the battery was unable to remove the plate, also. HELP!

Thank you for contacting FixYa.
I am not 100% sure of the back of this watch, but since it has no screws I can assume it just has a snap-style back.
Locate a very small tab (or recessed area) on the edge of the back cover. This is the access point for removal. You can find this sometimes by running your fingernail around the back rim, as this tab or indentation can be hard to see.
  • Pull out the stem, which releases the back on some watches.
  • Get a small flathead screwdriver it needs to be a thin inflexible tip. Use a kitchen knife as a last resort. Wrap the hand you are holding the watch with in a towel or protect your hand in some manner so you don't injure yourself if the screwdriver/knife slips.
  • Very carefully slide the blade under the tiny metal protrusion on the back cover (or across the length of the recessed area, depending on which type of cover your watch has). Do not attempt to insert the point of the knife. Use the length of the blade.
  • Get under the tab or recessed area and gently but firmly turn the blade upward, popping the cover off.
  • When you replace the cover, make sure you line up the stem slot on the cover with the stem of the watch.

  • My only other suggestion would be to take to another jeweler who is more experienced then where you went before. This should be an easy battery for someone who is capable.
    Best regards.

    I want to change out batteries

    1. Lay the watch upside down on top of a towel or cloth on a flat workspace. Use a small flat head screwdriver or blade to pry under the watch backing, then lift the backing from the watch. Slide the battery cover to the side to access and remove the battery.

    2.Take the battery to any electronics store to purchase a replacement. Bringing the old battery will ensure you install the correct type of battery in your Fossil watch.

    3. Replace the battery and the battery cover. Apply pressure to the backing until it "pops" back into the watch.

    I have a Caravelle Bulova watch #48G33 and I need to change the battery. I took it to a jeweler and he mess up the back and told me he did not have a battery that fit. I think he was unable to get the back...

    Hey there !
    if the back has a notch on the top left of the cover (right underneath to what would be 10'oclock position), it is a 'Pop-up'. But if the watch has 6-8 notches on the back plate of the watch its a screw-off.
    Its really hard to say what battery size it would take due to the fact that each watch has a different operating mechanism and its hard to determine that from the model number.
