[Choose #2] My watch batteries can be replaced easily by any shop. My D9 must be returned to Suunto.

[Choose #2] I’ve had mine replaced a couple times. I just let the Local place do it.. Probably going to go for Eco-drive next time and not worry about it.

[Choose #3] Just make sure to inspect and lube up the oring. Use a good tool to open and close the battery compartment, one that wont break the watch and that allows you to use a good amount of torque when tightening.

[Choose #3] Depends on the manufacturer specs. Most current watches and comps come with a user replaceable battery but as with all my dive equipment, I read the instructions.

[Choose #1] My dive watch was no longer waterproof once the battery was replaced. Both computers and my camera tell time so no more dive watch.
