Setting a generic one-button digital watch

My son has a basic supermarket digital watch, with one button on the lower left (labelled MODE) and two buttons on the face, labelled, respectively, LAP/RESET and START/STOP. If we ever had instructions on how to set this thing, they are now lost. Can you help?

I have a similar solution and I found the instructions fir the Extech Model 365510 digital stopwatch to be helpful. You might have to extrapolate a bit, but I got my watch figured out. Here is a link to the diretions:

How do i change time on casio illuminator?


dear please

Looking at your watch face: the upper left button is A, upper right is B, lower left is C and lower right is D.

Get your watch into "Hand Setting mode" That is the mode witht he digital time and seconds above it.
From Day and Date window it would mean pushing button "C" six times to get to that mode.

Once in "Hand Setting Mode"
Hold down button "A" til time blinks, then press button "D" to advance the hands, to the desired time.

Press "A" to exit mode. Press "C" to return to timekeeping mode.

How to set the wr330 watch lost instructions.


On the face of the watch, there are four buttons arranged around the circle of the watch face in four positions. Starting with the upper left hand button (labelled SET), and working clockwise around the face of the watch (to ADJ., EL, and MODE), I'll label the buttons "A", "B", "C", and "D".

In other words...
Button "A" is the button labelled "SET" in the upper left hand corner of the watch.
Button "B" is the button labelled "ADJ." in the upper right hand corner of the watch.
Button "C" is the button labelled EL in the lower right hand corner of the watch.
Button "D" is the button labelled "MODE" in the lower left hand corner of the watch.

Setting the Time.
1. Press and hold D as if you were setting the alarm. As above, the stopwatch will momentarily appear and then after 2 seconds the alarm time will appear with the hour flashing.
2. Press and release D and the seconds on the time of day will begin to flash.
3. Press and release B to reset the seconds to zero provided they are below 30. If they are above 30, the seconds will reset and the minutes of the time of day will advance by one.
4. Press and release A to change from flashing seconds to flashing minutes/flashing hours/flashing day of the month/flashing month of the year/flashing day of the week. In each flashing mode, pressing and releasing B advances the value by one unit.
5. Press and release D to exit time setting mode.

I have a casio ediface 5033 80W-M10008 how do I set the analog time


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
To set the analog time, press the lower left button 6 times. Next, press and hold the upper left button until the digital time starts to blink. This indicates that you are in analog time setting mode.

Analog time adjustment is completed using the lower right button. Every time you press the button, the analog time will advance 20 seconds. If you need to make a big change to the analog time, press and hold the lower right button to make the hands move faster. Once the analog time is set, press the upper left button to exit the analog time setting mode.
Best regards. Jewel

How do I set time etc on a coleman sports watch, have manual but doesn't make sense, it's model 40-408


The watch has four buttons. The lower left button is labeled MODE on the face of the watch. There are four modes and pressing the MODE button will step through each mode until you return to the mode at the start of the process. Start at the "Normal" timekeeping mode and press the "MODE" button three times until the digital display rightmost two figures for seconds flash.
Press the lower right button labeled RESET until the item you want to change is flashing. Pressing RESET cycles through seconds, minutes, hours, day, month, day of the week in the top sub-dial and then back to seconds again.
When the item you want to change is flashing press the top right button labeled START to step the displayed item to the value you want. When you are satisfied all the settings are correct, press the lower left button marked MODE to return to normal operation.
