I have a womens Columbia watch that is also water resistance to 65 meters. The battery has gone dead and I would like to replace it. Most watches have a groove to pry the cap off. This watch does not have...

mcdevito75 here, Hello Traudl, I see what you mean by not seeing or haveing that little tab on the back cover to pry off the back. I'm not an expert but do know a little about watches. Look again for this tab on the back cover, use a magnifier glass available at all Dollar stores to see this tab. Of course you may be right and there isn"t a tab, in that case look carefully between the back cover and the case of the watch for a cutout, it should be somewhere between the back cover and cvase of the watch, it"s very easy to miss this is why I suggest the magnifier glass. If by chance the back cover has square holes going around it"s circumference, then you would need a special tool to unscrew this back cover, I don"t think so though. If all this fails then your best bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area for a new battery. Hope I've helped.

Received the Tommy Bahama Islander watch Model 3025 as a retirement gift from employer- had 4 days - worked for 2 then stopped (at the same time) for 2 days in a row. I've read the book that came with the...

MY suggestion would be to take to a local jeweler/watchmaker to see if its the battery. They should have a battery tester to check to see if that is the case. Probably is.
If its NOT the battery, it seems like its defective and I would start inquiring where they bought the watch. I know. Tricky, because it was a gift, but well, they would want to know too
Good luck and let me know if that helps!!! J

Dead battery, how do I open?

I believe a local watch repairer will replace the battery for around 5$ that should include the battery, depends on the person.

Generally the battery is replaced by opening the back cover of the watch, in some cases special tools might be required.

the details of the battery read on top the one currently inside it.

Casio databank - data memory 350

I think it said in the manual that you had to use metal tweezers to reset the thing. Check the manual again under the changing battery section.

Error Code Display

Mine did the same thing after changing the battery and would reset intermittently without warning. For some unknown reason I decided to open the watch again. This time I reset the time and date with the back off the watch while deprssing the small spring that is there on the inside . Haven't had a problem since. Don't know if this is the solution but it worked for me. Good luck!

Battery Change on T-Touch

there usually is an AC contact point to reset digital watches. Touching the + and the ac point with a conductive wire usually resets the watch. Not sure about the spring- I'm not going to open my Tissot up unless I have to.
