Instructions

  1. 1

    Make sure the little arrow on the back is aimed to the right. Then, insert a small flat head screwdriver into the notch on the edge, and lever the back open. Place the back to one side.

  2. 2

    Unscrew the clip holding the battery (if your model has a clip), and remove the battery.

  3. 3

    Use plastic tweezers to put in a new battery. Do not directly touch the new battery. Screw the clip (if it has one) back on.

  4. 4

    Replace the gasket that seals the watch. Then lightly coat the gasket with a silicone-based grease.

  5. 5

    Align the back with the little arrow aimed to the right again, then carefully press the watch between two pieces of wood that are being held by a small vice, until the back seats itself.
