I bought this to replace the battery in an Omega Seamaster. The problem is that this battery has a plastic insulating ring on the back, but the ring means it won't fit the Seamaster. It relies on the small circular space between the positive and negative terminals to click the battery into place. I tried removing the plastic ring but didn't manage it. Last time a jeweller did the work (and charged a fortune) so I'm not sure if they had to remove the plastic ring themselves, or just knew to select the correct battery. I've now ordered an identical battery to the one that was in the watch (a Sony variant). I will see whether this new one fixes the problem.

I wanted this for an Android tablet. It was recognised and paired OK (code 0000), but didn't work. No cursor, nothing. Works fine on a laptop.
