Question about Timex Expedition Watches

2 Answers

What's wrong with my watch?

I have an older digital Timex Expedition (ladies indiglo) watch. The battery was replaced 6 weeks ago. The digits have disappeared, but the line between the date and time remains on the screen so the battery seems to still be functioning. Maybe not at full juice? I've tried pushing the usual buttons to reset, but nothing happens. Any advice?

    As digital watches get older they don't display properly. That's not uncommon ur watch is just old that's all. Send it sack to the mfg if the can't fix it the usually send it Back with a discount off or promo so u will keep buying there product be sure to send ur name address an phone #. They will contact u and it's usually a better way to resolve the problem

Go back and pull the battery and wait a few minutes and then put it Back then ac it be careful not to lose the spring that touched the back or your beeps and sounds will not work if it still has the same issue the u will have to send it Bach to timex for a new movement. It's cheaper to do that than buy a new one

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

New batterys can go bad, that is why they have a warranty. Replace the battery

    It's very rare a new batt will go bad and the only way that occurs is if there is insulator under it so it grounds out and drains it

SOURCE: Replaced battery, now no beep.

I have a Timex Digital Heart Rate Monitor 585 (product code T5C351F5)m, which has the same Short AC Pad and battery +ve message. There is an arrowhead pointing to the pad. It's a raised metal platform - a bit different to some of the Ironman's mentioned above. Here is a pic...6e1fe0e.jpg

There are so many applications use of the manual will be mandatory.

Use the numbers on the back of your watch and you will have a PDF version of your instruction manual.

Timex indiglo. Indiglo feature died.

The indiglo technology is time limited (it dims over the years with use) and cannot be repaired - have you had the watch a long time? if so, I'm afraid it's time to get a new one. Sorry!
