You can get watches that dont need battery's called automatics, Other than that take it to a watchfix place, they do it while you wait. Dont expect any place that has staff and a premesis etc to do it cheap, thats not the way the world work. Do it yourself with a amazon battery if you want to save dosh.

True, but they're generally(outside of high end quartz stuff) much more expensive to buy into and cost of ownership and servicing is significantly higher.
