Using the chronograph function often or leaving it running constantly will shorten battery life considerably.

In fact, if left running for extended periods of time, electronic chronograph/stopwatch functions on some watches will stop running automatically. To conserve battery power, it is best to stop the chronograph function when the need for timing is completed.

it is not advisable to replace the battery until it is absolutely necessary. Opening the case presents the possibility of compromising the factory seals, resulting in the need to perform water-resistant maintenance before it is required. The old adage “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it” holds true for battery-operated watches.
