Synchronizing the manual and digital clocks

Hi, Was wondering about how one goes about synchronizing the two time formats on the T-touch. I've recently had the battery changed and they didn't adjust that, and I don't have the manual on me either. Any suggestions? Is it possible to adjust the compas needles as well? They're no longer aligned in the straight line like they used to be. Thanks, Shahzad

    I cannot get any of the functions to work. The box does not include the operating manuel. I had the battery changed and that caused the time needels to read different than the digital time readings. Do you know where to get an operating manuel???

    The needles and digital read are showing different times. Can't synchronize them?

    ditto for me. I didn't think I'd find a solution that I could do online, but am VERY happy to have. Thanks again!

    I have had my watch for almost three years now. Suddenly it turned off and I thought the battery was dead. However, the watch turned back on just as abruptly but now the digital time display and analogue (minute and hour hands) are out of sync with each other. I can set the digital time, and it reports it accurately, but when I do so the hour and minute hands do not set to the same time.

    that helped a lot i have been too busy to be able to change it but it started to bug me

  • gadgefreek Apr 23, 2009

    I have exactly the same problem. I stopped using the watch for a while (purchased a new watch!) and decided to go back to this one for a 'change', but hands are out of sync

    How was it solved?

    Again, manual mislaid so can't remember how to do it.

Using pushers + and -, bring the two hands pre-cisely to 12 o'clock (do not hold down both buttons at the same time, just use each + and - button independently until both hands reach the 12 o'clock time). Then press middle button to validate the setting.

After validating setting, go back to home screen and hold down the + or - buttons until you reach the current time.

I added this review since I was having trouble even after reading some other posts...good luck!

How do I reset my tissot t touch expert

Steps to Synchronize the Hands
  1. Press the centre pusher (T). The watch should beep once.

Synchronize analog and digital time on Tissot T33 T-Touch Watch

I could not get any result from entering your model in their web site but the "T Touch online" seems to be a watch that has similar features perhaps.

Their catalogues seem to be generic, so by going to their web site you may finswhat you need.

Tissot T-Touch Baro way too high

Try to recalibrate the Baro/Altimeter as below:

Certain functions need to be calibrated. The altimeter and the Meteo are tied together. When a customer gets the watch, they should calibrate to either the Meteo or Altimeter. The easiest way to find out the altitude of the nearest airport (you can usually get this on line) and then go to the airport and adjust the watch. This will also calibrate the Meteo.

To calibrate the Altimeter:

1. Activate Crystal
2. Press Altimeter
3. Press and hold top + button until the watch beeps and display flashes.
4. Use + and – buttons to adjust altitude
5. Press center of dial to lock in.

Digital/analog times not same/# of batteries

You need to synchronize the watch. You can find directions to do that online, but you will likely have to do this several times a year. There are so many functions that you will occasionally need to go to synchro mode to synch everything up. It freaked me out the first time I saw this too. : )

Can't get the watch to synchronize

Your battery maybe down in power ie not much longer before it runs flat this seems to cause the problem you descibe ..otherwise it should set as long as you are following the correct procedure from the manual
