Did you buy an Accutime LED watch with a rubber band that has now stopped working? Do you need to replace or remove the watch’s battery? Is the model number on the back of the watch case DM1219? Then this post is for you!

  1. Very gently push one of the holding pins through the rubber watch band to free one corner of the plastic watch case
  2. Gently push / pull the same pin through the rubber watch band at the second corner, being careful not to secure the first corner again
  3. You should now have one side detached from the band
  4. Flip the plastic watch case away from the band allowing the other pin to keep the plastic case secured to the rubber watch band
  5. Gently remove the plastic bag enclosed watch circuit board from the plastic case
  6. One side of the circuit board has the LED holes in shapes of 8s and the Home button
  7. Flip over the circuit board and you will see the battery and a diode on the other side
  8. Examine the plastic bag to locate the sealed edge and gently push the circuit board out of the open end
  9. Using a small flat head screwdriver, gently push the plastic retaining crescent on the battery toward the open crescent gap while gently prying the CR2016 battery up
  10. The battery should pop out 
  11. Take a new CR2016 battery and gently push it into the empty battery compartment in the same orientation as the battery just removed
  12. Place the circuit board back into the plastic bag enclosure
  13. Gently push the circuit board back into its retaining compartment in the plastic case, being sure to have the Home button aligned to be at the bottom of the rubber watch face and the LED display aligned to the top of the watch face
  14. Swing the plastic case back into the rubber watch band
  15. Secure one corner by gently pushing the retaining pin back through the rubber band’s pin hole
  16. Once the first corner has the pin protruding on the outside of the rubber band’s pin hole, pull the pin out to align the other side of the pin with the second pin hole
  17. Gently pushing the other side of the pin back through the band’s other pin hole
  18. The watch should now be reassembled back to it original condition
  19. Press the home button to verify the LED display lights up and shows numbers
  20. Use the Home button to reset the date and time by holding the button down for a few seconds, and cycling through the setting options
You have now completed the battery replacement and the watch should be functioning as it originally functioned.

If time permits, pictures will be added to these instructions, but with these basic steps, batteries can be replaced and the watch can continue to function.
