For this instructable, I inspired myself of all those watches battery changing tutorials videos because they all have a tool in comon : The screwdriver for watches. I thought that it was useless to buy that tool.

All you need is :

-a watch with a back you can unscrew ( like in the picture )

-a pair of scissors

-a wire (a pin)

-not a new battery, you don't know the battery number yet,  (they are not all the same)

Step 1: Open the bracelet

#1 Open the bracelet

At the end of the attachment of the bracelet, there are some little holes,
you need to push on the telescopic pin that assembles the 2 parts.

Take your wire and insert it.




Step 2: Unscrew the back

Step 3: Take off the battery

Take your wire and slide it gently under the battery. Pop it out.

Take a look at the battery and take in note the serial number. Go buy it, put the battery with the positive side up and put everything back.

There you go.
