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.
