Getting the back of an Armitron watch back on

You cannot replace the back of an Armitron watch after you change a battery. It's like stuffing a size 11 foot into a size 4 shoe. Won't happen. Help!

You are going to need professional help for this one.

Recommendation:
Take your watch to your local watch repair shop they have a watch press that will press the back cover on.

Hope this tip helps.

What size battery does armitron 7012 watch use?


Don't even try. Just take it to a local jeweller shop. They will change it while you wait for between $6 and $8. They have all the batteries and the tools and know-how to get the back off.

If the watch #/size is not printed on the back of the watch, you will actually have to remove the battery to figure out what size you need. Best regards.

HOW TO CHANGE BATTERY


mcdevito75 here, Depending on your watch itself, Basically you"d remove the back cover, then release any hold down linkages on the battery, then replace the battery, hold down linkages and cover. The BEST BET is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this battery replacement as it may take special jewelers screwdrivers to change the battery.

What is the battery size for an armitron wr165 watch or the battery number


Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.

Armitron y121e watch


If your Armitron has a set of 6 inset notches around the back, as does my Y121E 20/1791F Armitron Diamond, that's a screw-back case that does _not_ pop off or pry off. You'll need a case opener tool, which is basically a small tool with adjustable-gap jaws that fit into two notches on opposite sides of the case and let you unscrew it. Wal-Mart sells this tool for about five bucks, and it'll pay for itself soon enough, as many watches have screw backs, and this will fit most anything you find. Head for their jewelry department and you should find the tool hanging up with the replacement watchbands and batteries.

The case is probably screwed down fairly tight against its O-ring seal, so make sure the tool is seated properly in the case notches, and turn it slowly and firmly counterclockwise to work it loose.

If your watch is like mine, it'll take a #377 cell, but wait until you've opened yours up to be sure.
