Best to take it to a jeweller as battery replacement if not knowing how can damage the movement. Otherwise a screw back has little notches on the side of the back and a press back is smooth. You will need a back opening knife to open.
Sounds like someone has replaced the rechargeable cell with a regular silver oxide of the same dimensions. Normally this doesn't work as the rechargeable cells have a part of the connector welded to them and normal cells don't. If you can source the rechargeable cell they are relatively easy to fit you just have to make sure the connector on the cell goes into the righ tplace on the watch.
the problem is the battery of the watch. it has to be replaced by new one, it is new but it probably sat for a long time in selling shelves that when the time you purchased it, it is out of battery charged. you can bring it to the watch retailer store from where you bought it and you can ask for the warranty of your watch. i hope i had been helped you.
Here's a link directly to the Dakota website for this particular brand of watch:
I looked briefly on E-bay and only saw one available auction for this type of watch, here's the link (it's shortened because E-bay links are huuuuge)
The watch should be working when you take it out of the box, unless there is something stated in your owners manual. The battery is probably flat or there is an other issue, either way the watch should be returned for exchange.
