My husband buys our watch batteries at the dollar store! Check the expiration date before buying...he changes our batteries....the jeweler charges to much....yes, I realize that not everyone can change their own battery.

A few years ago I tried to get a watch battery changed at WM but was told they only do that for watches purchased there....
As this service is so expensive anymore, I gave away all my “ fashion “ watches and wear only my good one. Its battery lasts a long time and will be taken to my jeweler to change out.

I have my DH or a guy coworker take the back off for me, and I get the matching battery on ebay, I just got a 5 pack for under $3. I have a lot of old Joan Rivers watches and the battery is usually the same for all of them. Then my DH puts the battery in and replaces the back, it is easier to put the back on, then to take it off.

@GCR18 Walmart was always my go to place for watch batteries, until they closed ALL the jewelry departments in our local Walmart stores. What a shame. Now I guess I will have to find a jeweler who will probably charge much more.

I have a lot of watches that need batteries. Not a lot of jewelers in my area that are convenient to get to, or really at all. Various issues with those stores like parking and them wanting you to come back later or next day when it’s hard enough to get there. So I’m wondering is there somewhere I don’t know about that’s convenient to get a watch battery that I don’t know about? Like a department store or a Walmart or something? I’m so fed up. TIA. I’ll take any suggestions.
You can find them at Target and Walmart, BUT they won't put them in the watch for you anymore that part you'll have to do yourself....The watch batteries are usually at either the Jewelry Department or sometimes in a display on the top of the cabinet in the Electronic Department near the cameras......

Thanks for all your replies. I don’t trust myself to figure out how to do it myself. I tried that once with removing links and that was an epic failure. Guess I’ll have to schlepp it out to the jeweler.
