I have a 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.

    Above procedure worked perfectly for mine. As for the military time (12h vs. 24h), use the xylus's directions and when you get to change the hour of day, continue up or down the hours using the lower left or lower right buttons, eventually the clock says 'A' or 'P' at the bottom for 12 hour clock mode or 'H' if you are in 24 hour clock mode.

I have an athletic works stopwatch. All it says on the front is chronograph. I bought it at Walmart. It has 3 buttons on the top and one on the bottom. I can't find the directions. I can't get it to...


I have the same Athletic Works stopwatch. I just figured out how to turn off the alarm: press either of the two mode buttons (middle top, or bottom right) until you see the regular time displayed (the seconds will be changing, but nothing else, and nothing will be flashing). Press and hold the reset button (top left); while holding down the reset button, press the start/stop button (top right). Watch the bell icon on the display in the upper right corner; with each press of the start/stop button you will see the bell either appear or disappear. When the bell disappears, release the reset button. The alarm is now off.

Dave,
If you hold the reset button you will see the number 12 flashing with an H next to it this is for standard or military time. To change it press the st/stp button. To go forward press mode.Then it will ask for the year set that then press mode.Now the date change it just like the Hour and year.then day do the same.Now timeSet that the same and it should work!

I have an Athletic Works watch and can not turn off the alarm.


the mode button controls the different functions of the watch.  time, alarm time, stopwatch, timeset, alarmset, in a repeating cycle.  Make sure you are on the time function (seconds ticking and changing every second, but not flashing twice per second.  This is the normal mode that shows the time.
 A press of the lap/reset button (labeled) will show the alarm time, Unpress will show the time of day. Press again toshow the alarm time. Press and hold the lap/reset button will show the alarm time again, but it will hold there.  While holding this lap/reset button, press the start/stop button (labeled). This will turn on (or off) the alarm (tiny indicator).  Press this start/stop button repeatedly (while still holding the lap/reset button and you will see the indicator turning on and off with each press.  Stop this button pressing with the indicator OFF, let up on the lap/reset button, and the time will return to the screen.  The alarm will now be OFF.

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.
