Step 2. The easiest way to open this is to use a small coin such as a 20p piece. Insert this into the slot on the cover to the battery port on the back of the watch.

Step 8. Replace with a new battery. When fitting the new battery try to avoid touching the battery surfaces with your hands as grease and dirt from your hands can reduce the battery life. Plastic tweezers are useful for this step.
