The Women’s Fossil Watch Sizing Guide
Once you’ve narrowed down the style of watch you want, it’s time to look at the sizing options. First take a measuring tape and wrap it around your wrist. If your wrist is 6-7 inches, you are between a size small and medium wrist size. If your wrist is 7.5-8 inches, it is a large wrist size. Check the options before making your purchase — often times extra links will be included in your purchase if your band is a bracelet style.
If your watch is not the perfect fit when you receive it, we recommend bringing it to a local jeweler to make adjustments for you.
How To Care For Your Fossil Watch
All of the Fossil watches are at minimum splash resistant, but the depths it can handle water varies. Please check the model you are purchasing to see the level of water resistance it has in order to protect it from water damage. No matter what the water-resistance level is, never adjust any of the functions or dials when it is submerged in water to prevent it from getting damaged.
To clean your watch, we recommend taking a soft cloth to wipe down the face of the timepiece. Take a soft toothbrush and rinse the bristles with soapy water. Then, scrub the bracelet of the watch with a toothbrush to remove any dirt and dust that has built up over time. Be sure to let the watch air dry immediately after before using again.
- How do I get my Fossil watch repaired?
If your Fossil watch is under warranty, you may bring it into a Fossil store for repair assistance. They may have you fill out a form to be sent out to a repair center if it is eligible. The functions covered by the warranty include the hands, dial and movement of the watch — otherwise it is not covered unless it is a recognized defect by Fossil.
If your watch is not under warranty, you can still bring it into Fossil for repair — but they will charge for the service. We recommend bringing your watch to a local jeweler to be repaired if a Fossil store is not convenient for you.
- What is the typical lifespan of a Fossil watch battery?
The average Fossil watch battery has a lifespan of about 2 years. Batteries can be easily replaced if you bring your watch into a Fossil store. We recommend calling ahead to make sure they have your model’s specific battery on hand. If a Fossil store isn’t conveniently near where you live, we recommend bringing it into a local jeweler for replacements.
- How do I know if my Fossil watch is under warranty?
If you make your purchase from Fossil directly, your watch will be under a 2-year warranty from the date of purchase. Be sure to check for warranty details and information before purchasing from other authorized watch retailers in order to register your watch according to policy.
