The "watch" battery is not rechargeable. To change it without loosing
data you need to have good AAs installed. If you have a memory card, do
a full backup, just in case.

My MP 110 had an issue -- Apple claimed it was a cold solder joint --
that caused it to occasionally report the backup battery was low even
though it was not. Probably not an issue with a 130.
