The insider has not one, but FOUR batteries. I took it to my local jeweler for replacement and the watch never worked the same again. I suggest you return to Nixon for battery service.

To Nixon's credit, their warranty dept. replaced my watch after trying to fix it.

The site www.nixonnow.com has the owners manuels. They do say that a nixon dealer or jewelry store is recommended for battery replacement.

What size battery does a Nixon the unit take?


Just take it to a local jeweller. They have all the batteries in stock and it will cost $4 to $8 while you wait.

If you try and buy them, you will have to buy 10.

My nixon won't run and it just came in today. Is the battery dead?


That is the most likely cause. The battery may have sat in the watch for a long time before it was sold and it may have been on the shelf for a long time before it was put in the watch. Replace it first and if it doesnt not last long, the watch may have a problem with its internal parts.

It says rom fail on my lodown 2 and i was wondering if anyone knew how to reset the watch?


Here some tips to deal with a Nixon Lodown:
1) Sleeping mood (display is off, all buttons lead to the same reaction: display shows time for some secs and then turns off again. This mode is for battery energy saving, switch it on and off by holding (c.a. 2 secs) the light button.
2) ROM FAIL: it happens that the lodown shows ROM FAIL and constantly restarts. It happened on my watch while I tried to change time zones. Here is what to do about it: Bring it to a professional watch repair store and get the battery replaced. The watch restarts automatically and works perfectly fine again. DON'T send it to Nixon, they will charge you for shipping, battery replacement, the new battery etc. Although it should be covered by the guarantee. Just get a new battery, it cost me 16 USD and the watch is good again, waterproof and works perfectly. Nixon authorized repair centers will charge you extra for pressure testing. I had this on my second Lodown, after I had it two weeks only...
3) Watch freezes: All digits are on at the same time, none of the buttons brings a reaction. I had this problem on my first lodown. Just get a new battery, that solves the problem. But again DON'T use authorized Nixon repair centers, it costed me almost 45 USD, just to get a new battery. Although the watch was only 1 year old and guarantee should have covered this case.
In general the Nixon Lodown is a good watch, looks good, has all features you need, as long as it works. The problem with the watch is, the above problems occur pretty often. I have my second Lodown now and I am very disappointed with the Nixon customer service. Although clearly guarantee cases, they will charge you for every single problem you have with the watch. My advice, bring the watch to a regular watchmaker.
After all, I don't understand why the Nixon Lodown manual does not mention all the above issues. The manual is completely useless, very poor from Nixon. You have to dig online to solve any issues on the watch. In summary: The Nixon Lodown watch is good, Nixon customer service and guarantee is a joke. ROM FAIL and freeze is solved with replacing the battery.

Battery change for Nixon Kink watch


You have to open your watch caseback. Undo the battery holding contact, get the battery out and memorise the writings on the battery. Buy exactly the same one and replace it in the backwards way you took it out.
