Question about Bulova Men's Watch

Watch is Beeping loudly on every hour!

The other day I set it to military time and it started beeping the alarm sound just once on every hour. Since then I've switched it back to AM/PM and it still beeps on the hours. How do I disable this?

For the alarm: If you want to use it (I think both it and the light use battery faster than when not used), you set it by pushing mode button twice, as indicated above, then go to hour or minute setting by pushing the lap/reset button, and advance to the time you want by pressing the start/stop button. Pushing mode will take you back to normal time again.

To turn alarm on or off, hold lap/reset button in and at the same time push the start/stop button. Alarm icon will show on or off. When you release the lap/reset button, it will revert to normal time.

If the alarm is on, at the designated time it will start beeping for awhile or until the lap/reset button is pushed (off) or start/stop button (snooze).

I have a AW60448W stopwatch that I can't get the alarms to turn off.


AW60448W Stopwatch

Okay, now you have an excellent Stopwatch but don't know how to set it up. Well, I had the same problem but a friend of mine wanted one also and after I bought it for him, he being an old guy, could not read the small print that came with the Stopwatch. I have gone to the trouble of typing it up and you can benefit from this.

Now I don't expect you will send me any donation/money but if the mood strikes you, I will accept no more than $3.00 cash.

How do I turn off the hourly chime on a Wal-Mart Athletic Works stopwatch?
The way to do it is push the "light" button, then the "set" button. If the hourly chime is active, the days indicators will all be highlighted, if it's disabled, they will be turned off too. Basically it's the same as turning the alarm on/off, but instead of using the "start/stop" button, you use the "set button".

I bought the water resist watch from walmart this evening it doesnt have a name brand on the watch but i think its a casio but it didnt come with the instructions on how to use it, the number on the back...


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • 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.
  • 6 Press the reset button to switch to the date, starting with the month, and press start to change it.
  • 7 Press reset one last time to switch from month to the day, and again press the start button to switch days.
  • 8 Press the mode button to finish the changes.

    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.

    How do I adjust date of my watch bought from GAP


    I think I figured it out: (Start + Reset) = toggle alarm on/off ("ALM" will display in upper left corner when alarm is on. (press Mode once) will bring you in chrono mode, where "start" button starts and stops the chrono, and "reset" button resets it back to zero (press Mode once more) will bring you to setting of time for alarm. Set the "hour" value by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "minute" value by pressing "start" repeatedly (press Mode once more) will bring you to setting of time for actual time. Reset the "Seconds" value to zero by pressing "start" button once, then press "reset" and set the "minute" value by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "hour" value by pressing "start" repeatedly (if it shows "H" in upper right corner, time will be displayed euro-style 0:00-23:59, if it shows "A" time will be displayed 12am/12pm), then press "reset" and set the "day of month" value by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "month" value (1-12) by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "day of week" value (Su-Sa) by pressing "start" repeatedly (press Mode once more) voila!
