How can I measure the amount of voltage of CMOS battery?

Hi Everyone:

       While I am happy to report that a CMOS Checksum Error was corrected by replacing the CMOS battery, I am curious about one thing.  In one response from the previously closed post, it was suggested I determine that the CMOS battery is receiving 3v.  With that point in mind, is there a way of gauging whether the CMOS battery is at 3v and not under that amount of voltage indicating a weak battery?

        Any suggestions to this question will be appreciated.

        Thank you
