Remove the four screws that hold the battery cover on the back of the watch. Remove the 3 very small screws that hold the battery in place. Remove the battery from the battery holder. The piece that the 3 small screws were removed from seperates from the 3 volt 2016 energizer battery. Replace the battery with a new one. Re-install the battery holder to the watch. There is a small tab on the lower left part of the battery holder that needs to be depressed to activate the watch. Depress it and look at the face of the watch to make sure it is activated. The watch will need to have the time, date etc reset but you should now be able to see that the battery is working. Replace the battery cover and reset the time and date as needed.

    I followed the instructions, an my watch seemed to reset OK (showed 10+ digit # for a few seconds then showed the time). BUT none of the buttons (except indiglo) have any effect. I tried rotating the back plate 180 degrees, same problem. Any ideas? The battery is oriented with the + side up. I doesn't seem to fit if I flip it over.

    What is the proper orientation of the batter? Should I see the batter # and + sign after I install it?

I have a Timex Ironman 30-Lap Mid watch with a dead battery. I purchased a CR 2016 battery as stated on the back cover of the watch. How do I change the battery?


This one is quite simple. Just remove the watch back with a watch case knife and flick out the old cell then carefully press in the new one (VERY carefully as the movement is made of plastic). fit the back exactly the way it came off (note the direction of the writing).

CHanging battery on timex expedition, cover says


If you don't have the proper tools I recommend that you not do this yourself. You could scratch the case or damage the movement if you don't know what you're doing. If it's a water resistant watch the gasket also needs to be replaced once it is opened. DO NOT reuse a gasket! For about $8 any watch or jewelry2_bing.gif store can change the battery and renew the gasket for you.

I though I had a dead battery and had it replace since then it looses time and the compass does not work Does this watch have two batteries The person that replaced the battery could not see but one...


The Timex web site for similar models implies only one battery.

I would have thought space was a little too restricted for two batteries.

It seems likely that there is something else wrong and the watch should therefore be taken to an authorised repair agent (see Timex web site for details).

How do you unlatch the battery of a timex ironman watch. I have the back open now


You will need to look for any screws holding down a plate over the battery. Sometimes these only need to be loosened and sometimes they have to be removed. Sometimes the plate can be lifter slightly and the battery slide out from underneath. I hope this helps you. Best luck

Timex expedition compass battery replacement?


hi
i am not an expert in this particular case but i followed theses below steps . here are they.....

Unscrew the case back with a case back tool (aka Jaxa wrench) which engages
the notches in the case back. I'm assuming the watch has a screw back - if
it has notches it does. Pop out the old battery.

In some watches you have to
unscrew a clip but in most the battery pops right out. Examine movement for
evidence of battery leakage or other damage. Carefully clear away any crud
at the edge of the case - the tiniest metal shaving will short out the coil.
Install new battery of same type. Handle new battery with non-metal tweezers
or rubber gloves, never bare fingers. Inspect case back gasket or preferably
just replace it with new o-ring of same size. Gasket should be lubricated
with silicone grease. Reinstall case back using wrench. If you are
concerned with water resistance the watch needs to be tested in a pressure
test machine. I'm sure the pros have more tips but this should suffice for a
Timex where it would not be a big loss to damage or break the watch.

i hope you can successfully replace the battery
thank you
