Since Fossil do not list their instructions under model numbers it is difficult to be sure that you rmodel still exists but if you go to their web site for instructions

(click on this link to go there) and you will see some instructions for various big tic watches and you can select the one that suits yours.

The only one that I could find that had a single button above the winder used it to cahnge the colour. Pressing this button for 2 seconds will change the colour to "alternating" and the same again will produce a fixed colour. Perhaps this will make the change of display you need.

Often with watches, you need to use a pair of tweezers to short the battery case to the chassis ((often marked "ac"). This seems to be a re-set function, although I have never found an explanation for the need to do this.

If all else fails, look up their contact details and speak to them about your problem.

This watch has 2 batteries so sounds like the main one has gone flat and the display one is still going, you just need to get the battery replaced.

Did you change the battery 3 months ago? Wrong type perhaps?

Was the watch bought new with the battery? Watch in storage and display for 9 months, you had 3 months, time for battery change.

Take your Fossil watch to a jeweler to find out.

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.
