How do I adjust date of my watch bought from GAP

I bought a sports watch from GAP. there are 4 buttons, Light, Mode, Start, Reset. When I push the Mode, the only the weekday changes and it looks like it is Alarm setting not date. Please help me. My sons watch is stuck in military time and I have no idea how to change it back.  It is a cheap Sport Watch from Gap, but he loves it.  Any ideas?

I think I figured it out: (Start + Reset) = toggle alarm on/off ("ALM" will display in upper left corner when alarm is on. (press Mode once) will bring you in chrono mode, where "start" button starts and stops the chrono, and "reset" button resets it back to zero (press Mode once more) will bring you to setting of time for alarm. Set the "hour" value by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "minute" value by pressing "start" repeatedly (press Mode once more) will bring you to setting of time for actual time. Reset the "Seconds" value to zero by pressing "start" button once, then press "reset" and set the "minute" value by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "hour" value by pressing "start" repeatedly (if it shows "H" in upper right corner, time will be displayed euro-style 0:00-23:59, if it shows "A" time will be displayed 12am/12pm), then press "reset" and set the "day of month" value by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "month" value (1-12) by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "day of week" value (Su-Sa) by pressing "start" repeatedly (press Mode once more) voila!

I wouldn't say I know for sure how to fix this problem, but I had some success.

I bought the same watch for my son and it was days before I could figure out how to change the time. It was an hour behind and the day and date were wrong on it. I finally just kept pressing the mode and reset buttons until I finally stumbled into the mode to change time. Just kept pressing buttons until I got the numbers flashing in the right spots and pressed the start button to change numbers.

I had the same issue where it seemed like I was only changing the alarm.

Just keep trying! It's a total pain that it didn't come with instructions or have them on the website or something.

Good Luck!

If you can give me a specific model, l can give you specific answers...it sounds like you are in the alarm mode, and this watch can be set to activate the alarm on given days....the date is in the time-set mode (military adjustment is also there)....go thru modes until the seconds flash....this is time/date set mode....then select thru the different settings....ie, hours minutes, ect....the watch will rotate to the date set section....happy hunting!!...d.
