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.

    I cannot remove screws on back to pul


    The back has to come off in order to replace the battery. To loosen the stuck screw wet the tip of a cotton swap/Q-tip with WD40 (don't overdo it) and press it on the screw so that it seeps in between the screw and the back plate. Let it do its work for some 10 minutes and try to turn the screw. Use a watch maintenance screwdriver that fits well to prevent damaging the little screw.

    How do you change the battery?


    Most digital watches have screws holding the back on, you will have to get a mini phillips screwdriver available in most stores. Remove all four screws, inside there will be a plate over the battery this plate may come up one of two ways, a screw which will require a regular screwdriver not phillips but still very small or the other way is the small metal plate has a tab you lift up you will need a magnifier to see this tab, once you pop it up batter will slide out. The battery will probably be a lithium style battery available at most stores. NOTE: there may be more than one screw that has to be removed on battery plate and sometimes you have to remove one side of watchband to get back off!

    The word (op en) on the top in place of the date or the day and nothing is responding


    I had this problem and managed to fix it. There is a small metal plate locate inside the back cover of the phone that can be knocked out of position. The small plate should be in contact with the two screws in the top right hand side of the watch (when back plate is off).

    To remove back plate you must remove the strap. To do this you must remove the four pins that connect the strap to the watch body. Take out the pins and set aside. The two plastic inserts can now be removed.

    Remove the four screws and remove the back plate. Be careful not to lose screws, rubber seal and small plate.

    Reglue the small plate to back plate and allow to set.

    Reassemble watch in reverse order and watch should work as normal.

    Good luck

    How iI open a casio 705 woman watch?


    Thank you for contacting FixYa.
    You will need:
  • A jeweler's screwdriver- Either flat head or Philips, depending on the model of watch.
    A cup or small box-This is to hold any screws.
  • How to change a Casio watch battery:
    1. Spread a cloth over your work area The cloth will help you avoid damaging the finish on your watch.
    2. If necessary, remove the watch band Removing the band gives you easier access to the back plate.
    3. Remove the back plate For some models this means using a screwdriver to gently pry it open, and others require removing screws. Keep small screws in a container to avoid losing them!
    4. Take note of the rubber seal Sometimes they need to be reinstalled in the same orientation. You might even want to use a marker to make a small "match mark" before removing it.
    5. Locate the battery It looks like a small metal button.
    6. Remove the battery You might need to loosen (not remove) a small screw and slide a latch out of the way. For other models, it's as simple as popping open a strap that is stretched across the cell.
    7. Install the new battery Make sure it's in the same orientation as the old one. They usually go in with the positive (+) side down.
    8. Perform a reset Do this by touching one tip of the tweezers to the AC contact, inside the watch, and the other tip to the back of the watch battery.
    9. Make sure the watch is working properly Carefully lift the watch to do this. Don't turn it over or the watch movement might fall out.
    10. Reassemble and seal the watch Perform steps one through four in reverse order to reassemble your watch.
    Best regards. Jewel

    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.

    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 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.

    How do you unlatch the battery of a timex ironman watch. I have the back open now


    You will need to look for any screws holding down a plate over the battery. Sometimes these only need to be loosened and sometimes they have to be removed. Sometimes the plate can be lifter slightly and the battery slide out from underneath. I hope this helps you. Best luck

    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.
