How to Replace Michael Kors Watch Battery

Before you start, it’s important to note that not all watches are created equal. Some watches may require professional servicing instead of a battery replacement. If you’re not sure whether your watch can be serviced at home, check with the manufacturer or a professional watchmaker. Assuming your watch is suitable for a battery replacement, follow these steps:

  1. Remove the back cover of your Michael Kors watch using a pry tool. Place the pry tool under the cover and pop it off gently.
  2. Take out the little plastic piece on top of the watch’s engine compartment to expose the battery.
  3. Remove the old battery by popping it out with the help of a small pointed prying tool. Be careful not to damage the watch’s engine.
  4. Place the new battery in the watch, making sure it’s the correct size and securely in place.
  5. Put the plastic covering back on top of the watch’s engine compartment.
  6. Return the watch cover by pushing it back in place. Make sure it’s well sealed.
  7. Test your Michael Kors watch to make sure all functions are working properly.

If you’re uncomfortable doing the battery replacement yourself, it’s best to take your Michael Kors watch to a jeweler or service center.

How to Open Michael Kors Watch to Change Battery Without Tools

The process for opening a Michael Kors watch depends on the type of watch you have. Some watches have a screw-down crown, while others have a snap-off back.

If your watch has a screw-down crown, you’ll need a small Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screws. After removing the screws, gently pull the crown away from the watch.

If your watch has a snap-off back, use a small flathead screwdriver to gently pry the back off of the watch. Once the back is removed, you can see the battery and replace it as needed.

How to Maintain Your Michael Kors Watch

Proper maintenance is essential to keep your Michael Kors watch looking and working its best. Here are some tips:

  • Wipe the face of your watch with a soft cloth after wearing it, especially if it’s been in contact with water.
  • Remove dirt or smudges with a cloth dampened in warm, sudsy water that contains mild soap.
  • Take off your watch before any intense physical activities to avoid damaging the delicate internal mechanism.
  • Wash your watch immediately if it comes into contact with salt or chlorinated water.

By following these tips, you can keep your Michael Kors watch looking and working great for years to come.

What Battery Does Michael Kors Watch Use?

Michael Kors Watches are powered by either 395 or 371 silver oxide batteries at 1.5 volts. On average, the button watch battery will last around 2 years, but the battery life will depend on how much the watch is worn and how it was taken care of.

When replacing the battery of your Michael Kors watch, be sure to check the battery size found at the back of the battery for the details and codes. Ensuring the use of recommended battery will help maintain your watch in good working condition.

If you are not sure of which type of battery your watch uses, you can always bring your watch to a jeweler, and they will be able to help.

You may also consider purchasing an extra battery for future needs as that ensures that you won’t have any issues with the timepiece.
