Introduction

The watch contains a small, 300mAh lithium-ion battery. Though these batteries will generally last for years, they do have a limit to the number of times they can be charged. As the battery grows older and is charged repeatedly, it may become less and less able to hold a charge. When this happens, replace the battery.

  1. Lay the watch face-down on a flat, stable surface.
    • Lay the watch face-down on a flat, stable surface.

  2. Press the watchband down against the work surface.
    • Press the watchband down against the work surface.

    • Press the tip of a flathead screwdriver against the edge of the spring-loaded holding pin.

    • With the spring-loaded pin pressed in, the watch band should release easily.

    • Gently pull the band away from the body of the watch.

    • Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the opposite side.

    • With the watch laying face-down, locate the four screws. They are located on the back of the watch, at the four corners.

    • Using a Torx-T5 screwdriver, remove each of the four 4mm screws and set them aside.

    • Gently work the plastic opening tool under the top edge of the watch’s back cover.

    • With the watch’s back cover pried loose, gently lift it away from the front half of the watch.

    • Lay both halves of the watch body assembly face down (with internal components facing up).

    • Locate the battery on the back half of the disassembled watch body. It is rectangular in shape and located just above the window for the heart monitor.

    • Locate the battery’s electrical contacts. They are located next to the heart rate monitor. They roughly form a “+” shape.

    • Using the plastic opening tool, gently pry the contacts away from the plastic channel in which they fit.

    • Gently work the plastic opening tool under the battery.

    • Using the plastic opening tool, gently pry the battery up.

    • If replacing the battery, please dispose of it properly. Do not throw the battery in the trash. Contact your local municipality for locations which accept lithium-ion batteries for disposal or recycling.
