If the unfortunate day has come when the battery in your Michael Kors watch has died, you need not worry. Your Michael Kors watch is safe; you only need to replace the battery. Michael Kors watches typically have inexpensive batteries available for replacement. Always use the battery type suggested for your watch, as this may vary depending on the model.

Caution: Before proceeding, please be aware that removing the back of your Michael Kors watch may cause scratches. Please exercise caution.
Caution: The water resistance of your Michael Kors watch may be compromised if the battery is replaced. We do not recommend that you replace your battery yourself; please visit a local jeweler to ensure that the watch is properly sealed so that it does not lose its water resistance.

Please follow the steps below if your watch has a snap-back case.

  3. Substitute a new battery for the old one. Typically, the name and model of the battery are etched directly onto the watch battery. Verify that the watch is now functioning before continuing.
