Thank you for contacting FixYa.
This can be tricky. You may need to take to a store that has a watch press for replacing backs. Square watches are particularly tricky. I hope you were pushing the back on by pressing on sides of watch and not center as this may have warped it to not fit.
Best bet is a local repair.

I finally got mine adjusted by pressing the top right button (time) and the "pin" button (bottom left) at the same time. The numbers should start flashing then you can let go of the "pin" button and adjust the time. Hope that helps. Date button works the same way.

FIXYA standard response on watch batteries is to suggest going to a local jeweler in your area and have it replaced at minimal cost. They would have the know how and tools, as well as batteries that would work.

There are online sites that offer mail in replacement such as that at the link below:

You can simply replace battery in your Fossil Twist 1114 watch. First of all you have to open back case of your watch and remove existing battery. Be careful and do not creates scratches on the watch. After removing existing battery from watch you should place new battery in the watch.

The best approach is to take your Fossil watch to a jeweler who will open it without damage, identify the battery type, and perhaps install a replacement all for a reasonable price.

I'm assuming it's a Gen 3 watch.
These are renowned for this issue, the heat from the charging process softens the glue to such an extent the back detaches.
But the watch is still in warranty, so contact Fossil for a no-charge repair.
