These are settings for the Timex SPORTS 1440 Magnetism (5b841 -W163US)
These are for the 4 button SPORTS 1440 (not 6 button) - they will also work for the 1440 SPORTS "Informer" model wrist watch - you will NOT find these instructions on the Timex website - only the 6 button which will not work on these watches is on that site!

To reset the time on a Timex 1440 Sport watch, follow the steps below.

  1. Hold down the MODE button (top left) for about four seconds. Let go when it starts flashing.
  2. Press the MODE button one time. This changes to the current time so you can adjust it. The default is on the seconds setting.
  3. Click START/STOP button (top right) to switch between seconds, minutes, hours, days, and months.
  4. Use the ADJUST button (lower right) to change the current value.
  5. Click MODE one time to save the settings.

These directions are for a four button 1440 Series Timex watch. I emailed customer service with the three digit number on the back of the watch and they sent me directions how to change the time and it actually worked. Here are the steps.

1. With time and date showing, press (constantly) SET (approximately until you count to 20-25)
2. Seconds flash, Press "Start\Stop" to round time to the nearest minute, setting seconds to zero.
3. Press MODE. Hour flashes. Press START\STOP to change hour, including AM (no symbol) and PM.
4. Press MODE. Minutes flash. Press START\STOP to change minutes, hold button to scan values.
5. Press MODE. Month flashes. Press START\STOP to change month.
6. Press MODE. Date flashes. Press START\STOP to change date.
7. Press MODE. Day flashes. Press START\STOP to change day.
8. Press MODE. Time format flashes. Press START\STOP to select 12-24 hour time format. 12 hour format has AM\PM.
9. Press SET, at any step to exit and save settings.

Date (day of the month) appears in upper part of display in Time mode. Press and hold START\STOP to see month and date in large digits.

I hope you find it easy. you just have to hold mode down until it blinks. press it again to go to the time. (the first time is the alarm) push start/stop to toggle, push start/stop again and again to go to the date, day, and then return to time. but if you do the alarm, you have to hold mode down again. i hope you can figure it out now.

I really had my hopes up when I saw the picture - which is my watch - and the supposed link that led to the instruction manual. However, the manual that is linked isn't for my watch. Same picture - looks like the same watch...butthe manual shows a watch with six buttons, not four. I thought I could ignore the two middle ones. But this didn't work at all. Everytime I hold down adjust, my watch just says 16:00. It won't start flashing. Very frustrating.

Purchase watchbands for the timex 1440 sport


My son's watch (WR 50M) broke... so I have a strap, if you'd like it.
He loved this watch and it would cost about the price of a new one to repair, so I'm buying him a new one. He's had the same watch for years... bless, huh?
If you anywhere I can purchase another WR 50M - 1440 Timex, I'd be most grateful.
