Thanks

For this model the battery is not available for replacement as it is built into it.

How old is the watch?

Ask Your Own GPS Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
A year

Ok, it will still be under warranty then if it is in a year

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the watch to have the battery replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
