Question about Timex Watches
My battery died on my timex ironman watch. i replaced it today (cr2016). now when i set everything, the beep and chime no longer will work. i turn them off, i turn them on, and nothing for the hourly beep nor the alarm. when the battery died, there was a long continuous beep from my watch. could the "speaker" have gotten fried??? Same problem. My battery died months ago. I just replaced it today, but the chime won't work. Ideas? Thanks.
I think there would have been a minute spring coming from the back of the watch module to the backplate of the watch - this spring carried a vibration / beep which echoed off the backplate. Chances are you have damaged this spring during battery change - as i did with my gShock. Basically it's nackered!

My watch also didn't chime after changing the battery. After reading the answer, I open up the watch again and changed the orientation of the back-plate and the beeps and chime worked again.
