That is the most likely cause. The battery may have sat in the watch for a long time before it was sold and it may have been on the shelf for a long time before it was put in the watch. Replace it first and if it doesnt not last long, the watch may have a problem with its internal parts.

SOURCE: dead battery on nixon insider watch!

The insider has not one, but FOUR batteries. I took it to my local jeweler for replacement and the watch never worked the same again. I suggest you return to Nixon for battery service.

To Nixon's credit, their warranty dept. replaced my watch after trying to fix it.

My nixon lowdown watch screen says ROM FAIL and i have only had it for 3 days how do i fix it ?


Hi You don't fix it. Hopefully you mean it's only 3 days old from being new and you can take back to the shop for refund/replacement.
ROM - stands for Read Only Memory and is basically the chip that all the software and information is stored on. This runs the watch and it's this that has failed. You could try reseting the watch by removing the battery and then replacing it.

I have a Nixon LowDown Tide Watch and the screen is staying blank, almost as though it is in a battery saver mode unitl i press any button and its display turns on for 3 seconds or so then goes back to...


Hey, this just happened to my nixon watch (I have the nixon housing - same setup as the lowdown) and what you have to do is simply hold in the light display button for about 3 seconds and the display won't disappear after the light times out.

hope this helps :)

It says rom fail on my lodown 2 and i was wondering if anyone knew how to reset the watch?


Here some tips to deal with a Nixon Lodown:
1) Sleeping mood (display is off, all buttons lead to the same reaction: display shows time for some secs and then turns off again. This mode is for battery energy saving, switch it on and off by holding (c.a. 2 secs) the light button.
2) ROM FAIL: it happens that the lodown shows ROM FAIL and constantly restarts. It happened on my watch while I tried to change time zones. Here is what to do about it: Bring it to a professional watch repair store and get the battery replaced. The watch restarts automatically and works perfectly fine again. DON'T send it to Nixon, they will charge you for shipping, battery replacement, the new battery etc. Although it should be covered by the guarantee. Just get a new battery, it cost me 16 USD and the watch is good again, waterproof and works perfectly. Nixon authorized repair centers will charge you extra for pressure testing. I had this on my second Lodown, after I had it two weeks only...
3) Watch freezes: All digits are on at the same time, none of the buttons brings a reaction. I had this problem on my first lodown. Just get a new battery, that solves the problem. But again DON'T use authorized Nixon repair centers, it costed me almost 45 USD, just to get a new battery. Although the watch was only 1 year old and guarantee should have covered this case.
In general the Nixon Lodown is a good watch, looks good, has all features you need, as long as it works. The problem with the watch is, the above problems occur pretty often. I have my second Lodown now and I am very disappointed with the Nixon customer service. Although clearly guarantee cases, they will charge you for every single problem you have with the watch. My advice, bring the watch to a regular watchmaker.
After all, I don't understand why the Nixon Lodown manual does not mention all the above issues. The manual is completely useless, very poor from Nixon. You have to dig online to solve any issues on the watch. In summary: The Nixon Lodown watch is good, Nixon customer service and guarantee is a joke. ROM FAIL and freeze is solved with replacing the battery.
