    A dead battery doesn't necessarily need replacing.
    A couple of days in sunlight should sort it.

    Okay so I will leave it by the window day thank you. Is this a common issue?

    its as much a common issue as your car using petrol and not working after it runs out.

    the first battery is more than likely still working fine, it just needs a charge as well. read the manual on how long you need to leave it in the sun to get a full charge but as a general rule a few days of direct sun will get it up to full again.

    I'm assuming you replaced the battery like for like?

    As other answers, leave it to charge on a windowsill for a few days/weeks until it's showing full and you'll be good to go.

    If it’s going on a windowsill to charge best to leave it for several days.

    It should take rechargeable CTL battarey. not regular one.
    considering it fairly new watch all it was needed is just 4 hours under direct sunlight.
    It should be special!

    Leave it close to a window - not on the window sill. Depending on how hot it is outside, you could fry your watch!
