What type of battery does the watch use and are they included?
The standard and waterproof watches all use battery type SR626SW and it comes fitted with the watch. The watch becomes operational when the small white plastic tab is removed and the crown is pushed back in after setting the correct time. We normally recommend taking our watches to a jeweller or watch repairer to replace the battery, as they have the correct tools for removing and re-fitting the watch back. If you want to try changing the battery yourself, the standard watch has a tiny notch on the edge of the case back where you can insert a small tool (e.g. a jeweller’s screwdriver) and prise the back off. Once you’ve changed the battery, you have to apply firm pressure to replace the watch back. There’s a plastic washer that goes round the whole circumference of the back and you need to make sure it stays in place. On the waterproof watch, the case back unscrews and you would need a special tool to do this. We recommend taking it to a watch repairer to change the battery.
Are the watches water resistant?
The Standard and Camo watches are water resistant so can withstand splashing but not total immersion in water. The watches should not be worn in the shower, bath or when swimming. The Waterproof watches are fully waterproof to 50m so these are the ideal choice for wearing on holiday or whilst swimming.
