    You cannot get one from TomTom. You can replace the battery yourself, TT does not do it, you will need to Google instructions, get special tools, figure out what battery you need, purchase it, install it, etc. Frankly, you would probably be better off just getting a new watch; there are plenty of brands out there with better feature sets for less money these days (TT Sports went out of business over 3 years ago).

    I am surprise that TT don’t propose changing of battery. It’s not very CSR…… I can’t accept to put my watch in waste.
    When we purchase nobody say the life of your watch is short (less than 3 years)…. Except if you don’t use it …. A vendor said that ! Thank you for this humorous idea sir! The big issue is that he didn’t know he was doing humorous !

    What part of TT Sports went out of business almost 4 years ago is unclear? There is no one to replace your battery and even if they weren't gone, none of the watch companies replace batteries. I have a TT watch that is over 5 years old and still going strong so not all of them have such a short life.

    I find it unacceptable that a perfectly working watch can not be refurbished with a new battery after only two years. I certainly will not be purchasing another golf watch from Tom Tom.

    Many electronic products do not have replaceable batteries and most sports watch brands do not offer battery replacement, so TT is not really the issue here. However, it is a moot point since TT Sports went out of business and discontinued their entire watch product line almost 4 years ago so you cannot buy one even if you want to.

    Replacing the battery is quite simple.
    Go AliExpress and watch YouTube.
    That's all.
