Other than putting the B-1 into suspend "sleep" mode, are there any "watch out for" tips on changing the battery?

You'll need a special die to remove the case back or you'll be in danger of mashing it up. Plus you risk reducing the already limited water resistance. Personally, I'd at least take it to a watchmaker who knows what they are doing if you don't fancy paying Breitling prices.

Yes, I will do that. I have a watchmaker with the correct die; still, Just curious if there is anything to be careful of when changing the battery. Cheers.
