I have a cat watch
Thank you for contacting FixYa.
2Pull out the stem, which releases the back on some watches.
3Get 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.
4Very 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.
5Get under the tab or recessed area and gently but firmly turn the blade upward, popping the cover off.
6When you replace the cover, make sure you line up the stem slot on the cover with the stem of the watch.
I am not familiar with Cat watches, but here are instructions for basic watch backs:
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.
