How to Change a Watch Battery
There is some very useful advice in this video, such as using a towel to work on. Not only does it protect your working surface and the face of your watch, which will be upside down most of the time, but it also acts to 'catch' the tiny screw you may find yourself working with. The towel is perfect to keep the screw from bouncing around or falling to the floor. Believe me it can be very tricky to find, so try to use a colour of towel that you will be able to see that tiny screw easily. If you are anything like me, you will drop that screw multiple times. haha
Here the watch is without the battery, I had put the screw back in for safe keeping, until I got the replacement batteries.
It will be tricky, but you can wind that screw back into place to hold the battery down, so the watch can function properly. It took me a few attempts to finally get that screw back in. I think that takes the longest amount of time and is the most frustrating part of replacing the battery.
I hope this has been helpful. The video is great, but sometimes, they go a little quickly when you are trying to follow along, so I thought step by step pictures might be useful for some people.
*** By the way, if want to make your watch battery last longer, and if you are like me and have more than one watch, (I like to colour co-ordinate), simply pull out the dial when you aren't using the watch. The dial you pull out to change the time on your watch, will stop the watch from running. Pull this dial out when your watch isn't in use. I read somewhere this will help your battery to last longer. You will have to re-set the time on your watch before you wear it, but as the dial is already out, that won't take long to do. If you only have one watch and you wear it all the time, then this trick might not be worth doing.
