You may have thought your battery was bad, when in reality the watch had a problem to began with. You also may have bought a dud battery. Have the battery tested, if good you either have a mechanical problem ( there is something stopping the gears from moving) or you have a electrical problem ( the curcit board or coil is shot). Fossil has a 11 year warranty on most of their watches, and even if you don't have your original reciept, I would get ahold of them and ask what they can do for you. Or you can take it to a watch repairman to repair but it will cost you.

What is the battery number for a fossil am3848


Hello,
We can tell you the battery number you may need for your Fossil Watch, but it is not worth you to change it yourself.
Many people think that replacing a battery to a watch is an easy task, but that is far from truth.
Note that once a watch is opened ( if you can get it without leaving marks all around the case) all circuits are extremely delicate. If you may touch some part with any metal instrument or even with your fingers, you will loose your watch.

Best you can do is take it to be replaced to a watch shop, sure you have one near you.

But let me insist, if you need the battery number, let us know and we will provide.

I have a big tic watch but after a battery change the digital number display on watch face no longer works,why?


Who changed the battery, you or a watch repair serviceman? Did you replace the battery bar after you replaced battery? Did you check and see if there was a second battery (some watches have two)
You may need to have it serviced. Or try Fossil at :

I just replaced the battery on a fossil watch and it won't work. How to you reset it? or what else needs to be done? Please help me. thanks.


mcdevito75 here, Your Fossil watch should work with the battery change, of course it will need to be re-set. You"ll have to double check the battery install, make sure the battery contacts are clean, use a piece of paper towel and carefully clean the battery contacts. Hopefully your new battery is not dead. Another thing to check for, is that the buttons contacts are lined up with the quartz movement. While you double check your battery install, carefully press 1 button at a time, and make sure each button is making contact with the quartz mechanism, many times during a battery change to quartz movement may move just slightly but enough to keep the buttons from contacting the movement, this will keep the watch from working. Hopefully 1 or all of these is the answer for your Fossil watch.

I changed the battery in my Fossil ladies watch and it still will not keep time. The hands are going around but it is not keeeping up with the time


mcdevito75 here, Just had the battery changed, if the watch was running fine before the last battery died, and now with this battery change the watch can"t keep time, try another battery as any Battery can be weak just from storage.

Fossil watch dead


1)Get the battery out again and check for power. 1,5 Volt batteries should be 1,52V - 1,54V and the 3Volt batteries shold be 3,1V - 3,3V in charge.
2)Take the hardened steel needle or watchmakers screwdriver and clean (scrape) both contacts off any visible residue till they are shiny. aaaaaaaUce dust blower to get rid of scrape-offs.
3)Make sure the contacts are touching the corresponding battery side only and not shortcuting the battery.

Do not forget to rate please.

Get battery out again. Clean (scrape) all the battery related contacts using steel needle or small screwdriver. Make sure the battery is not underpowered. Refit the battery keeping the right polarity and set the watch.
