Hi, If your watch stopped working while changing the time it can be for a couple of reason . One is i never set the watch between the hours of 11 pm and 4 am or else your movement can be damaged. The main reason is usually that the watch crown was not pushed all the way in to the first set . If the watch crown and stem is pulled out and not in the start position the watch will not run. Also after setting time you might need to reengage the watch by pressing on the jumper buttons on the top side of the crown they look like push buttons.
mcdevito75 here, Your Fossil watch should work with the battery change, of course it will need to be re-set. You"ll have to double check the battery install, make sure the battery contacts are clean, use a piece of paper towel and carefully clean the battery contacts. Hopefully your new battery is not dead. Another thing to check for, is that the buttons contacts are lined up with the quartz movement. While you double check your battery install, carefully press 1 button at a time, and make sure each button is making contact with the quartz mechanism, many times during a battery change to quartz movement may move just slightly but enough to keep the buttons from contacting the movement, this will keep the watch from working. Hopefully 1 or all of these is the answer for your Fossil watch.
I have the same Athletic Works stopwatch. I just figured out how to turn off the alarm: press either of the two mode buttons (middle top, or bottom right) until you see the regular time displayed (the seconds will be changing, but nothing else, and nothing will be flashing). Press and hold the reset button (top left); while holding down the reset button, press the start/stop button (top right). Watch the bell icon on the display in the upper right corner; with each press of the start/stop button you will see the bell either appear or disappear. When the bell disappears, release the reset button. The alarm is now off.
You will have to open your
watch, because the contacts or contact springs are not stiff enough,
so, you need to make them stiffer. Do as follows: 1) Open your watch caseback 2) Extract the movement (carefully and using tweezers), do not touch dial with fingers, 3)Take
small brush and lighter fluid (ZIPPO) and clean all pushbuttons in case
from inside and out pushing them rapidly, then use dust blower to dry
the fluid out, 4)On the movement you will see contacts corresponding
to each pushbutton on the case. Use needle or sharp metal pin to clean
(scrape) off any visible residue from these contacts till they are
shiny. 5)Pull all contacts on movement sligtly outwards using tweezers but be careful not to brake. This will make them stiffer. 6)Reassemble the watch and the problem should be sorted. Do not forget to rate, please.
Probably you changed battery youself. If that's right, then open watch again, take battery out and check it with tester if it is fully charged. If yes- put battery back in place and secure the contact. Now carefully check for AC sign on movement. When found- take fine tweezers and connectAC with battery+ for 3 seconds.
Watch should work now, but resetting is needed. Use your watch manual to reset all watch functions.
NOTE: Some movements require connect AC and+ twice. This should be written inside caseback or on battery cover.
Solution #2 by Guest, posted on May 13, 2008 solved my problem. OUTSTANDING solution #2!
1. Hold in the MODE button until the alarm time appears. 2. VERY IMPORTANT - release and TAP the MODE button AGAIN, and the time should appear with the seconds flashing. 3. Use StART/Stop to choose among seconds, hours, and minutes, and 4. Use ADJUST to increase the selected number 5. Press MODE to put the thing back in regular operational mode.
After several attempts with other directions over the last four months, these 5 steps WORKED.
