Question about Watches
SOURCE: new fossil watch
It is not likely that there is a protective cover over the battery itself, if there is anything on it to prevent use while not owned it is a little pc of plastic holding the stem out. It is sad to say but there is no way to tell how long the watch had the current battery in it before you received it. It is common to get a new watch and have the battery die shortly after or be already dead. Go to a local jewelry store to have replaced, make sure they are able to test the old one FIRST, if the battery is dead, allow them to replace it, if the battery is fine, return the watch to Amazon.

I suggest that your watch has an oxidized contacts and electricity can not reach the movement.
Do as folloes:
Take out the batttery,
Clean (scrape) all battery related contacts till they are shiny (use hardened steel needle for that),
Use the dust blower to get rid off any tiny dust and dirt particles after cleaning,
Refit the battery back.
Now your watch should work again.
If all written above do not help, then there is a problem with your watch and you will need the help of the watchmaker.
Do not forget to rate, please.

SOURCE: beep and chime will not work
I think there would have been a minute spring coming from the back of the watch module to the backplate of the watch - this spring carried a vibration / beep which echoed off the backplate. Chances are you have damaged this spring during battery change - as i did with my gShock. Basically it's nackered!

that happened to me too...the watch repair man told me that I had the stop watch on. The stop watch should serve as a stop watch, not the second hand. The second time on your watch is the small dial at the bottom middle of the face. Once I turned off the stop watch feature, my battery life is fine...I have not had to change my battery in over 2 years now. HOpe this helps.
