SOURCE: Can't reset the time on digital watch

Hi,
I found the solution at http://www.watchliquidators.com/fossildir/Nike.asp

Hold down the button at the top left (the light) for about 4 seconds. The second part of the time will start blinking. I tried this before, I'm sure, but I must not have noticed the blinking and thought nothing was happening.
Once the seconds numbers are blinking, push the top right button (Start/Stop) to move to the hour or minute. Push the bottom right button (Lap/Reset) to change the time. When you're done, push the top left button (Light) again.

I have the Adidas ADH4018 and I assume the controls are the same, unfortunately, Adidas has absolutely no manual online for this watch. I've figured out how to do most of the functions of this watch.


NOTE: For greater setting accuracy, I recommend using a stylus-like object or the retracted tip of a retractable pen (as to not write on your watch) to click the number keys when setting the time and date for the first time.


Set the Time:

To set the time go into time mode by pressing the lower silver button on the right side of the watch face. Then enter set mode (press and hold the upper silver button on the left side of the watch face until your display blinks). Press the number 7 to change the hour, press the number 8 to change the minutes, press the number 9 to start the seconds over at 00. Press the multiplication key (x) to change from 12 hour to 24 hour time modes. When finished press the time mode key.


Set the Date:

To set the date go to time mode by pressing the lower silver button on the left side of the watch face. Then enter set mode (press and hold the upper silver button on the left side of the watch face until your display blinks). Press the number 4 to change the month number. Press the number 5 to change the day of the month. Press the number 6 to change the day of the week (indicated by a small dot above the days of the week abbreviations at the bottom of the digital display. When finished, press the time mode key.


Set the Alarm:

To set the alarm time, enter alarm mode by pressing the upper silver button on the right side of the watch face. Then enter set mode (press and hold the upper silver button on the left side of the watch face until your display blinks). Press the number 7 to change the hour, press the number 8 to change the minutes. When finished press the time mode key.


Turn the Alarm On or Off:

To turn the alarm on or off, first enter alarm mode by pressing the upper silver button on the right side of the watch face. Then press the divide key (÷) to change from on to off or off to on. When the alarm is ON an indicator icon will appear in the upper right of the display in time, date, or alarm mode. When alarm is OFF there will be no indicator icon displayed.


To Use the Calculator Function:

Enter Calculator mode by pressing the Clear All (AC) key on the keypad when in time mode. Use the number keys and function keys to complete calculations. To return to time mode simply press the time mode key.



As of yet I have not discovered how to turn off the annoying beep when you press any button.

Can't set time, etc. on Ottimo Billboard Solar watch.


I just picked up this watch.  Setting it is easy.  Hold down the button marked "RESET" (lower right) until the numbers start blinking.  Hit the "MODE" button (lower left) until the the settings you want to change are blinking.  Hit the "ST/STP" button (upper right) to change that setting.  Keep on hitting these two buttons until the settings are as you would like them.  Hit "RESET" button to finish.  So, to change just the day, I would hold down "RESET," hit "MODE" four times, hit "ST/STP" until the date is correct, hit "RESET" to save.
