My timex indiglo Ironman triathlon watchhas twelve hours of military time and then twelve hours of regullar time. HOW CAN I GET RID OF THE MILITARY TIME AND GET ALL TWENTY FOUR HOURS OF REGULAR TIME???...

Actually all the hours are military time. They are the same for the first twelve hours of the day. If you go through the setting procedure it will ask you if you want "12" or "24" hour time. Select 12. "24" is military

I have a casio 2747 and i am having setting the time digitally because i dont want military time and it refuses to change plzz help me

On the Casio 2747 you can easily change between 12-hour and 24-hour (i.e. Military time)... Follow these steps:

1. Make sure you are in Timekeeping Mode (i.e. digital display shows date at the bottom).
2. Press the "D" button (i.e. bottom-right button) to toggle between 12-hour and 24-hour timekeeping.

Note: 12-hour timekeeping mode will display an "A" or "P" for AM and PM.

Our clock reads Military time ever since a terrific rain storm, it didn't get wet. We set it at Mt time and it's OK until midnight and then it goes to Military time. Our manual got lost and don't know...

keep pushing the hour button through the 24th hour. Then it cycles into the 12 hour mode. If you keep pushing the hour button again through the am and pm it will cycle into the 24 hour mode again. Etc.

My TGHK watch is stuck in ''military time'' and I've lost the instruction manual. Any ideas how to get it to am/pm mode?

advance the hours. The first time you go through the 24 hour cycle, it will be in am pm mode, the second time in 24 hour mode, the next time in am pm. Just keep advancing the hours until it comes up the correct time

How do i get my athletic watch off of military time? It's a water resistant watch up to 165 ft. model # aw60447w

military time:
1. When setting the time on your watch, IF you watch can change to Military time(and most can)
2. when you are adjusting the hours go through a full 24 hour cycle. You'll notice that the 2nd time through it is on military time.. 3rd time through back to 12 hour day AM/PM cycle .. 4th time back to Military.
So you can do this as many times as it takes to get to the right time ..
In 24 hour time you will see an "H" displayed where you normally see and "A" for AM and "P" for pm.

Time confusion

Possibly you can change it back by pushing the hour-setting button through a 24 hour cycle--you can see if you are on military time during the PM part of setting it. If it's on military, just keep pushing till you start over at 12 am again (hint: that's 0:00 in military.) At least, that's how it is on my watch.

Military Time

Hello I have the same watch and had the same problem. You press the mode button till you get to the point to change the main time, you then press the reset button (bottom button on right side of the watch)to toggle to the hour place, you then cycle thru the time untill the "h" in the top right hand corners disappears and then the watch will be back on regular 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.

How do I get my Timex WR50M watch out of the 24 hour (military) time and back to a 12 hour clock?

Hold down the adjust button bottom right then press the mode button top left you will notice the a or p that stands for am/pm will disappear & reappear. If you have an a or p on your display then you are out of military time.
