    I have the same problem! My son's new Timex 1440 Sports watch came with an instructional sheet but it does not go with the watch purchased. Why is Timex not responding to the frustrated customers and update their website immediately? I, too, am unable to access the web page their website refers to for instruction/manual downloads. Eek!

    I did what you said but this is what happened (I am trying to set my time for Monday 3:31pm):

    1. I hit MODE (top L button) and ea time it gave me two zeros and then a random digit when doing what you suggested. Solution: I held MODE for 3 seconds then it gave me three zeros as you described in point #2.

    2. When I got to the three zeros I hit mode again as you mentioned in point #3 nothing happened. Solution: I hit SET (bottom R button) and the "hour" zero began to blink. I kept hitting SET until I got to the 3 and made sure it said P (for PM) at bottom of screen.

    3. You made it sound very easy and it should be! But after getting the 3PM, I hit START/STOP (top R button) and it held the hour of 3 and the minutes began to blink.

    4. I hit Set to get to the minutes I wanted (31 for the time of 3:31PM as mentioned at top) and then ----- it's a mystery...

    When I hit START/STOP to hold the minutes it simply goes back to the hours and the hour digit begins to blink again. When I hit MODE the clock acts like it is done with setting the watch's time BUT the time reads 4:21PM -- what? Where in the world did 4:21PM come from?

    Still need help setting the watch! Forget the other features for now...I simply want my son to be able to wear his new watch and to have the correct setting.

After a very l-o-n-g "hold" on the phone with Timex, I know how you can get the instruction manual/guide to the "1440 Timex watch" you have but don't know how to set.

First, look at the back of your watch and there should be a tiny clear-color sticker with 6 characters (#s and letters) -- THIS IS WHAT THEY WILL ASK FOR! If sticker is torn off and there are any other #s engraved on the back they may still be able to help you.

Call the TIMEX OFFICE STORE / WATCHLINE at 1-800-367-8463 (make sure you have the time to "hold" for 5? 10? 15? minutes).

They will send the correct manual for the # you give them...directly to you by e-mail.

Wa Hoo! For such an INexpensive watch, purchased for my son's Christmas gift, I must admit that I have placed 3 phone calls, have searched FixYa on-and-off for a week, and after my long "hold" with Timex -- not sure it was worth it. Next time a watch purchase is in mind...I will be checking to be sure the correct instructions are included or "it ain't a sale" for me! Good luck!

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.

Trying to reset time on timex 1440 sports watch

Here's a link to some Timex watch manuals. I looked at the one for the 1440 but I couldn't tell if it was for your watch or not.

The following site has Timex manuals also.

If you can't find your watch on these sites, perhaps some of the similar watches will give you a clue as to how to set the time.

Good luck!

The instructions at the Timex site for a 1440 seem to be for a different watch than our 1440. We eventually found our copy of the instructions and they are titled W-163-US. I found these same instructions here:
