Question about Oakley GMT OAK0531 Wrist Watch
SOURCE: athletic works watch
I just bought an Athletic Works watch at WalMart that is identical to the Aquatech watch I bought there some years ago. My band got hard and cracked so I needed to buy a new one as the band is not available. For $9 the entire watch is probably cheaper than a band. I used the instructions from my Aquatech to set the stuff on the AW. I found the instructions on the internet. Here is one site that has them.
Give it a try.

SOURCE: CAN'T SET TIME
I have an AW 150 watch. I looked everywhere for a solution to setting it. I found nothing. It appears that all types of this watch are hard to set. I happened upon the correct procedure for at least setting the watch.
My watch has 4 set buttons that you can push. 2 on each side. Hold the upper right hand button until something starts flashing on the watch. On mine it was the seconds. Then release the button. Now each time you push that button for a very short moment, the flashing part of the watch will progress through each area (minutes, hours, date, etc). When you get to the area you want to set/adjust, use the bottom right hand button to move up/forwards and the bottom left hand button to move down/backwards. When you have fixed one function push the upper right hand button to move to the next function you want to change and repeat the procedure. When you are done, hold the upper right hand button in until the watch quits flashing anywhere and then release the button. Your watch is no longer in the adjust mode. Hope this works for you. It drove me nuts until I figured it out.

Maddening, isn't it? Fortunately the solution is here:
1 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.
2 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.
3 Press the start button to change minutes.
4 Press the reset button again to switch to hours.You will know it worked when the hour starts blinking instead of the minutes.
5 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.

With my old watch (from Walmart), all i had to do was go into the time settings and cycle through the hours until it went past the military time's midnight and it would start going through "normal" AM/PM times.
I hope this is enough information.
