Re: Can't get kids gap watch move from military "24" hr...
Hit mode three times until TUES flashes and the seconds. Hit reset until the hours flash and hit start to change them. The watch goes from AM hours to PM and then back through AM and when it cycles through the PMs for the second time, they will alternate 12/24 hour time.

There should be four buttons: mode, reset, start and light. Find the mode button and press it three times until it is in the set time mode.
Find the reset button, which usually is located on the bottom right side of the watch face, and hold it until the time starts blinking.
Press the start button to change minutes.
Press the reset button again to switch to hours. You will know it worked when the hour starts blinking instead of the minutes.
Press the start button to change the hour. The watch can handle two modes: standard and military. As you press start, the hour will change from AM to PM, noted by an "A" or a "P" in the top right. When you get through 24 hours, the watch will change to military time and an "H" will be displayed instead of "A" or "P." Keep pressing start to go through another 24-hour cycle and it will revert back to standard time.
Press the reset button to switch to the date, starting with the month, and press start to change it.
Press reset one last time to switch from month to the day, and again press the start button to switch days.
I too was confused at first at setting the second hand after reading the directions. I read your post in searching for a solution, then I figured it out. Check the watch face, the second hand is operating using military time. (24 hr. time) You will see 24 hour time embedded on the face.
For example: if you wanted to set both hands to be at the same time to test this. At say 10 p.m. set the second time hand to 22 for 2200 hrs. (10 p.m.) Let's say you woke up at 7 a.m. The second hand would be at 0700 (Embedded on watch face) then at noon it would say 1200 on the watch face... I now use the normal hands for local time and set the 24 hour hand for my home time.
I hope this helps.
Light button is A Mode button is B Start button is C Reset button is D
Standard Time Adjustment: 1) To set time, date, etc. press button B three times (assuming you start in standard time display mode) 2) Press button D until the area you'd like to change is flashing. (i.e.: minutes, date, day, etc.) 3) Press button C to change. Press once for one unit increment of change. Hold for 3 seconds for speedy advance. 4) Press D again until the next area you'd like to change is flashing. 5) At completion of changes press Button B to resume standard time display mode.
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!
Dear gap.com Customer,
Thank you for your email regarding the Sporty Printed Watch user instructions. Please accept our apologies that no directions were received with your order.
The instructions are as follows:
A. Light B. Mode C. Start D. Reset
Standard Time Adjustment:
1. To set the time, press the Mode button three times (The seconds and the word Tuesday should start flashing).
2. If the seconds position shows less than 30 seconds, pressing the Start button will reset the seconds to 00. If the seconds position shows more than 30 seconds, pressing the Start button will reset the seconds to 00 and the minutes will increase by 1.
3. Press the Reset button until the area you want to change starts flashing (i.e., second, minute, hour, day, month, and weekend. Press Start button once for per unit increment, press and hold for 3 seconds for speedy advance.
4. At completion, press Mode button to resume standard time display.
To reset the Alarm:
Press the B: Mode button until you reach the alarm.
Press the D: Restart button.
Press the C: Restart button to get back to the time
Possibly, you could push the hour-setting button through either the military or standard time setting, i.e., there are actually 48 "hours" you can set your watch to and you need to cycle through enough of them to reach the standard or military hour you want.
