Put band back on

This watch makes use of two buttons to hold the band on instead of the usual "toilet paper roller." I cannot get the band to go back on after one side, then the other, came off. Nothing is broken, just dislodged. Help! Thanks, gcrafty

    I had the same problem, when the band came off during a softball game. I've tried several times to put the band back on, but there doesn't seem to be an easy solution.

It is all about geometry Hisall! You need to find a watchmaker that understands the gentle art of "tweaking" the bends and parts in your watch clasp. People come to me with this problem regularly and I spend a minute making very small bends and Voila! I make it look easy but I have worked on thousands of bands so I usually can see what the problem is immediately. I am assuming the clasp is not actually broken or missing parts just not functioning properly. Go find a old watchmaker and tell him what I said. He will know what to do.

Timex Canada told me the only way to fix this is to send it in. In trying to fix mine, I notice it is actually held on be slotted lugs/keyways and the 'loops' around the buttons probably don't do very much of the holding. Tried hard but i could not force things to go back together properly - not I'm searching Internet for a fix too when I found your query.

How do i set the time for my adidas ADP6002?


The watch looks and feel great; the band doesn't hurt my wrist like other watches. The instruction book, however, was awful. It was a bunch of instructions for other watches, not the ADP6002. It took a few minutes of playing around for me to figure out how to set the watch. Here's how to do it: 1) Make sure there is a little "t1" above the second hand. If there is a "t2" instead, hold the Start/Stop button for 3 seconds. (This is the part that was messing me up) 2) Hold the Set/Light button for a few seconds. The watch should say LIGHT and "OFF" or "ON" should be flashing. 3) Press the Mode button until the hour hand starts flashing. You can adjust it up and down by the Start/Stop and Lap/Reset buttons. 4) Press Mode to adjust the minute, second, and other settings. 5) Press Set/Light button when you are finished.

Trying to convert to military time


  1. Press the "MODE" button---usually on the lower left side of the watch, but sometimes on the right center side---to cycle through to the time display.
  2. Press and hold the "SET" button---usually on the right lower side of the watch---until the seconds flash.
  3. Press "MODE" repeatedly to cycle through the displays that flash: from hours to minutes to month to date and day. At the end of the cycle is the hour display option. Make this option flash.
  4. Press the "SPLIT/RESET" button below the face of the watch to change the hour display option to "24-hour display." This is the same as military time. If there is a "NEXT" button on the upper-right side of the watch, use this to advance to the 24-hour option instead of using the "SPLIT/RESET" button. You may need to press a "START/SPLIT" button instead a "SPLIT/RESET" button to cycle between 12- and 24-hour display. The "START/SPLIT" button could be located below the watch face or on the upper-right side of the watch, depending on the model.
  5. Press the "SET" button again. You are now done. All PM hours should be displaying hours between 12 and 23.
Best regards. Jewel

I have a Nexxtech Watch that is both digital and hand driven. I have somehow switched the regular time to a 24 hour clock and don't know how to switch it back. The manual says nothing about it. Any help...


These basic instructions are for most digital watches (and these are for regular to military but you can just follow same instructions to get to oposite) Hope this helps!
  1. Press the "MODE" button---usually on the lower left side of the watch, but sometimes on the right center side---to cycle through to the time display.
  2. Press and hold the "SET" button---usually on the right lower side of the watch---until the seconds flash.
  3. Press "MODE" repeatedly to cycle through the displays that flash: from hours to minutes to month to date and day. At the end of the cycle is the hour display option. Make this option flash.
  4. Press the "SPLIT/RESET" button below the face of the watch to change the hour display option to "24-hour display." This is the same as military time. If there is a "NEXT" button on the upper-right side of the watch, use this to advance to the 24-hour option instead of using the "SPLIT/RESET" button. You may need to press a "START/SPLIT" button instead a "SPLIT/RESET" button to cycle between 12- and 24-hour display. The "START/SPLIT" button could be located below the watch face or on the upper-right side of the watch, depending on the model.
  5. Press the "SET" button again. You are now done. All PM hours should be displaying hours between 12 and 23.

Resize the watch


If the band is screws then a small screw driver will do the trick. Make sure you use the right size screw driver so you do not strip the screws.
If the band is put together with cotter pins you can push out the cotter pins with a small awl or punch. You want to apply pressure to the end of the pin that is not split or appears to be smooth. Usually when you have cotter pins they are arrows or indicators on the band to tell you which way the pins come out. Make sure you put the pins back the same way they came out.

Lost manual TGHK


I was trying to find a solution to this problem on line, and then I stumbled on it myself while playing around with it. Here it goes:

Your 4 buttons on you watch are:

Light Start


Mode Reset


While looking at the time, hold in the Light and Reset buttons at the same time with 2 fingers from your left hand. This will put the alarm time in the display. While still holding those 2 buttons down, use you right hand to press the Start button. This will cause the alarm signal to go away (or go on if it off when you do it). Problem Solved !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can not open the band to put it on


Take a thin bladed knife and slide it between the watch strap and the buckle part of the watch body. The pin which holds the strap to the watch is spring loaded like a toilet roll spindle. Very gently twist the knife blade to release the pin from the body.

Be warned, getting the pin back into the watch can be very fiddly.

Watch band replacement


If you can, get yourself a small flathead screwdriver and grind or cut out the middle to resemble a barbecue fork. This will help you to hold down and move the springbar. If you can't grind or cut it, just use it to hold down the ledge that springs down (like a toilet paper holder) and push it over with that. It will probably take a few trials, because it is difficult without the right tools.

Band ajustment


this is my home improvised kit:

1. channel lock pliers
2. a tiny nail that's small enough to fit just inside the band pin channel
3. maybe a hammer, or something heavy enough to smack the nail to force the pin out...i used the pliers as a hammer.
4. a pad of paper to use as a work mat.
Now on to the process...
1. find out which links need to be removed
2. find the pin to extract
3. line up your nail on the pin's head
4. give the nail a couple of good smacks
5. check to see if your making any progress on the band's opposite side. The paper pad is firm enough to take the blows while soft enough to let the pin poke it head out from the pounding
6. continue smacking the nail on the pin until you can grab its head with the pliers and pull out:)

The rest I'm sure you can figure out!
