Fossil CH2332 Wrist Watch

Can't find a forum to put this in. I have a Fossil CH2332 wrist watch and can not figure out how to take the back off to replace the battery. The manual is useless + teeny tiny print. using a knife to pry it off did not work. it appears that it might unscrew since there a some notches in it but using a knife and a small hammer it's not turning. Any ideas?

Flirty, hammer and knife??? C'mon. This is a watch, not a Dodge Hemi!! Take it to a jewelry store, buy your battery from them, and they will usually change it free of charge. Yeah, the battery may cost a little more than one you find at the drug store, but it is a margin thing.

Fit a small screwdriver blade to a notch and push to turn the cover counterclockwise. May take a few hammer taps to get it started. Once off, there may be a plastic cover that can be pried out.
Then depress the spring retainer and remove the battery.

Or so it said on another site.

Glad you got the back off Flirty. I usually keep a cheap set of jewelers screw drivers you can buy at about any dollar store. Make sure if you take any screws out to put them in a coaster or a small plate. I usually use the dining room table for that as it has about the best light in the house. I think I have seen that same battery in a drugstore. Getting the battery is usually the easy part it is trying to get the screws out and keeping track of them that is hard. Good luck to you!

I used to have one that was for eyeglasses but who knows where it's at. I ended up using a #0 Philips screwdriver for the slots.
