Question about Watches
The indiglo button has become very hard to press. It takes a lot of pressure to get the glow on. What should I do to free this button like before.
It would be better to know the age of the watch and some of the surrounding events of it's life before offering a suggestion. Is it worn all the time never taken off (shower, swimming, workouts, ?) is it older then 3 yrs old? If your answers to the 2 questions are YES, replacing it is likely what will happen, however if you feel you can manage it, the back can be removed and a small screwdriver (the kind you use for your glasses) can be inserted inside and then free what ever might be causing it to depress hard, if you see some sort of "goop" or object try your best to remove it without touching any of the mechanical parts, as this will only cause more damage. There are some Jewelry stores that change batteries that might have someone there that could just take a look, however ask what their skills are before leaving it, some places must send stuff away, and others can do a quick look without you even leaving it. Remember this is a busy time of year for the Jewelry retailer, they may not want to invest a lot of time if your not going to buy something, wait 3 or 4 weeks go in when they have NOTHING to do and you will likely get better service.
