Page E-72 of the online manual at the link below suggests it may take some time to recharge after exposure to light, but unsure if that is your issue or not.

On the back of the watch is a module number, It is usually in a rectangle box. Look up that number on the g-shock site and it will give the directions for that watch.

Tip

Necessary placement position of Seiko Kinetic Capacitor


This is one of several photographs taken with Macro detail to help anyone wanting to install a capacitor in a Seiko Kinetic watch.

When I first started there was very little guidance, save for some hasty videos that assumed too much prior knowledge, or photos that made little sense.

So, with the basics:
1) The all important peg.
The Mylar Insulator has a hole which slips over this peg...
doing that initially and correctly will save you frustration galore.
I will post another photo later about the orientation of the Mylar Insulator, as it absolutely must be, so that it does cover what it needs to cover, and yet does not block transmission of a charge where it shouldn't.
A tricky little piece of dexterity that caused some cursing occasionally.

2) A specific little square notch that is only for the Left Hand contact of the Capacitor.
If you start with the Capacitor "upside down" (with the shiny side face down" unlike other watch batteries, and slide it tipped downwards initially, as shown in the photo, then it will slip under the little lip that is has to hide under, which is at 12 o'clock in the photo

3) This is a little detail most videos never mention: There is a tiny foot
on the end of the Right Contact.
That foot absolutely must be in contact with the tiny piece of materiel as shown in the photo.
If it is not, the capacitor won't work.

4) A piece that touches one of the coils, as it is supposed to.

Caveats: 1) Do not use metal tweezers
2) Do not Short the Bridge Plate and the foot's resting materiel area
3) There is a gold toned metal spring retainer...be certain the Capacitor is fully inside that spring, and not merely laying on top of it.

(I like to envision the foot as the bottom of the number "9", and in that manner
the gold toned spring is at the top of the "9")

Take your Fossil watch to a jeweler who will identify the type (not size) and perhaps install a replacement.

You don't, you take it to a local jeweler. They have all the batteries and the tools to take the back off. Done whilst you wait for $8 to $15.
