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 :-)

2006 bought, stopped working, does it need a battery change? Is it worth changing the battery?


It looks like you paid over $100 for the watch, I suggest to give a try changing the battery. Actually if you take it to some watch repair shop.. some of them will NOT charge you if replacing the battery does not bring your watch back to life!
I hope this helps!

Why would a tissot t-touch need an overhaul to replace a dead battery


These babies are notorious for going down the tubes with a battery change. I bet if you get it back it won't work with a new battery. Twice I have replaced batteries and the watch didn't work when I finished. One of them was my own watch, I think $450 is about half the price of a new watch and that is sad. Cool watch just not very long life

I have an old Casio watch 863 SDB-500W, I have just change the battery . Light is working but nothing is display. How to reset it ?


To reset the watch, you need to 'short' the reset point with the battery. To do this, with the watch face down and the back removed the 'Reset' point is in the bottom right hand corner (a gold-coloured contact point). Use a pair of metal tweezers or an unbent paper-clip (anything as long as it's metal and will touch the reset point and the back of the battery at the same time). Maintain contact for about 5 seconds and you should get the display back.
I've just changed the battery in my SDB 500W and the above method worked. I did lose the audible 'beep' though and I'm currently on the net trying to find how to get it back. That's how I found your question... :)

Just recievd watch and does not appear to be working.


hi laura! I think the battery of you police watch have to be replace by a new battery if your didn't know how to change the battery, you had to bring it to watch experts. then you said that you have just received you watch and it is impossible that the battery is discharged that is maybe when the date of the watch had been manufactured, it is working for that the suppliers know that there no problem with the mechanism of the watch.. that' it. thanks..

I bought this watch 1.5 years back.I have started using that.It worked properly.For the last few months I didn't wear it.Now the watch is not working. So the problem is in the battery ?


On average, I've found that analog wristwatches that use a silver oxide (or alkaline) battery last about a year after a fresh battery has been installed. Digital watches, because they have no moving parts, will typically last longer on a set of batteries if you're not using the alarm or backlight function. Watches that use lithium batteries generally last two years or more between battery changes.

Based on your model watch, I would guess that your battery has run down too far to power the movement. A fresh battery will probably fix your watch. Hint: in the future, if you aren't going to wear your watch for a while, pull the stem out into the "set" position. That will stop the movement and extend the life of your battery. When you want to wear the watch, simply set the time (and date, if you have a date window) and push the stem back in.

The watch has a "battery" and claims that it does not need to be replaced but perhaps it needs re-charging. If you go to their web site (click on the link below), there is a full explanation of re-charging requirements :-
