I had the same thing happen after a couple of months. Fortunately, I had bought it at Value City so I took the watch and my receipt, and they replaced the battery - no problem.

Don't buy a cheap watch where the second hand is running. Only buy one that has had the stem pulled out to stop the watch. I get along great with cheap watches - save my good ones for occasional wear. I got rid of my $4,000 Bertolucci when it was going to cost me over $100 to change the battery and balance it. Never bought a watch at Target, and I have a feeling I never will. You can usually talk someone into helping you at K-Mart - not my favorite discount store, but I've had good luck with watches. They may demur a little but will usually come around if you're nice.
