Re: I put in new batteries and it does not work what else...
Make sure you have the correct battery and that the contacts are clean. Make sure the back completely snapped shut. also you might want to try another new battery sometimes even a new one is bad. Give it a few minutes after you put it in to power up

do you see there is a whole in the middle of the metal cap? try using your tweezers to create a lever and put just enough force that it pops open. You can also remove the whole thing out so it is easier to work with. Good luck!
If you take a jeweler's lupe near where the arrow is you will see the word "reset" in the plastic. There is a deep hole in the plastic with contacts below. That is the reset, and that is why you must use very sharp pointed tweezers to make contact with the back of the battery.
I think if you do not have sharp tweezers, you can probably put a sewing pin down the hole, and then connect with a small screwdriver to the back of the battery
mcdevito75 here, Sadly, once a battery, any battery leaks, it leaks out acid that eats away metal. Once your watch Battery leaked acid, it ate away electrical contacts, wires as thin as hairs, and tiny linkages with--in the quartz movement of your watch, ----- there is no reversal of this acid corrosion. You have 2 choices, 1 and if this is possible, have your watch repair person replace the quartz movement with a new one, if replacement movement is available, and 2 replace the entire watch. Sorry.
The 2 most common reasons for a watch to not work after a battery change are:
1) The circuit is not functioning properly. 99% of the time it is not efficient to have this fixed. It almost always needs to be replaced when this is the problem.
2) The oils in the watch have either become thick like car oil, or thin and now the metal parts are causing too much friction.
The 2nd problem can be fixed by having the watch serviced. Servicing is usually between $50 and $100 for Fossil's depending on where you go. This may not be efficient since most Fossil's are less than $150.
Stores that service watches are Tourneau and Precision Time:
Probably you changed battery youself. If that's right, then open watch again, take battery out and check it with tester if it is fully charged. If yes- put battery back in place and secure the contact. Now carefully check for AC sign on movement. When found- take fine tweezers and connectAC with battery+ for 3 seconds.
Watch should work now, but resetting is needed. Use your watch manual to reset all watch functions.
NOTE: Some movements require connect AC and+ twice. This should be written inside caseback or on battery cover.
to change the battery of fossil blue watch,just open the case back and remove the old battery,look the number size on the battery and put a new battery that same number size ,after replacing battery press the case back tight to avoid water damage !good luck
If you open already the watch,and you want to take the old battery,there is a clip that's lock the battery twist that lock.then the battery comes out and replaced with a new one. If you have already put the battery and no display you must reset it by shorting battery connection,in the plate there is arrow guide to the hole where you put your tweezers to short the connection.then the display appears 8888,that is already resetted take the tweezers.. click below for video guide; G-ShockBattery Change Tutorial
Even you change a new battery with desame size and volts not working.The problem is in the terminal where going to put the battery.The terminal had a dirt or a film residue that comes out from the battery,you better clean terminal by scratching the old film,the lying down terminal is negative,,the side terminal is positive you better observed polarity if happen inter change the battery side it will not works.If not working, even you clean already terminal,short the terminal connection for 3 seconds,If you have a flourescent with a ballast,put your watch lying where there is strong vibration for five minutes, your watch works 100% txt me whatever the result so i know it's ok.
