For most of the cheap Chinese digital watches sold at Walmart you simply scroll through the different numbers while setting the hour part of the time -- 1 to 12 then 13 to 23 to 0 then 1 to 12 AM and 1 to 12 PM then 1 to 12 to 13 etc. When the watch is in 24 hour time (as used by most of the world outside the US and Canada) most will show the letter H instead of A or P.

For some of these watches, you need to be in Alarm set mode to be able to scroll through all the choices, and that will control how both the alarm and the watch show time.

For a few others, you get to select A or P or H separately from the numbers, either while setting the time or while setting the alarm.

The Chinese factories that build these watches seem to put any of the different kinds of insides into any of the same cases, so you might have any version -- and the companies rarely bother making sure that the instructions match the actual watch.

I have an alarm chrono watch from walmart and it beeps every hour, even though I've turned the alarm setting off. How do I make it stop?


I so have the same problem. I have the same velcrow chrono watch from Walmart. I was going to set the date on it when I accidentally set the hourly chime. I annoys everyone, especially when it goes off every hour.

Need to set time on WalMart TGHK watch.


If its digital that makes it more difficult to give setting directions online. Need to know the exact model #. I would do a google search to try and find your watch and you might find a manual online. OR you could seek out a local watch repair business and they should be able to set it with no problems. Most Sears have a watch repair kiosk in their stores! I woudlnt take it back to Walmart because they are just sales people! They have limited watch knowledge!

Good luck!

Can't set time on aqualite watch-field ranger


I have an aqualite field ranger watch too. I lost the information but I found another notice for another watch and I was able to set the TIME as well as the alarm. I am not despairing as to one day set the date correctly! ;-)

The instructions I found are for "LIFELONG Chrono Alarm Sport watch" from Hanig & Company. The watch this particular instructions comes from has a rectangle LCD display that only takes the center of the dial, and only 3 buttons for the functions.

Aqualite has 4 buttons, but one of them is only for lighting the dial only, therefore if we use the 3 other buttons the same way they are described in this manual, it will work.

Aqualite has 4 buttons:
1) top right (we will call it S1 like this manual does)
2) bottom right (this will be S2)
3) bottom left (this will be S3)

As I said the number 4) (top left) is only for light and we will forget it since it is not needed to set our watch.

Setting the minutes, hour, date month and day:
Press S3 3 times, or until the following are flashing in the display : TU and seconds
Set the minute: press S2 once and advance by pressing S1
Set the hour: press S2 and advance by pressing S1
Choose from AM (A), PM (P) or military time (H)
Set the date: Press S2 and advance by pressing S1
Set the month: Press S2 and advance by pressing S1
Set the day Press S2 and advance by pressing S1
Press S3 to bring you to the time display

Setting the chronograph:
The chronograph feature will store and add to the last recorded time interval up to 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds in the time display.
1. Press S3 (flashing in the display: SU, FR, SA)
2. Press S1 to begin. Press S1 to stop.
3. press S3 to return to the time display.

Setting the lap time:
The lap feature will record from 1/100th of a second up to 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds.
In the time display.
1. Press S3 (flashing in the display: SU, FR. SA)
2. Press S2 to clear setting
3. Press S1 to begin. Press S2 to stop.
4. Press S1 once and S2 twice to reset.
5. Press S3 to return to the time display.

Setting the alarm and snooze:
The time alarm features with a convenient snooze function which will sound 5 minutes after the first alarm in the time display.
1. Press S3 twice for the alarm mode (hour will be flashing): advance by pressing S1
2. Press S2 once (minute will be flashing)
3. Press S3 to set alarm and return to time display
3. Press S1 to deactivate alarm
5. After 5 minutes, snooze alarm will ring. Pres S2 to deactivate.
6. Press S1 and S2 at the same time to deactivate the alarm at any time.

To test alarm
In the time display
1. press S1 and S2 simultaneously for alarm test.

Hourly chime
Your chrono alarm sport watch ha the option of an hourly chime in the time display.
1 Press S2 and then press S3 to activate hourly chime

Need instructions on National Geographic Men's watch #NG010GYSK




go to Buliva web site and look for the chorograph 561/598
FEATURES
1. Hours, minutes, seconds and date display.
2. 60 minute Chronograph (CHRONO) with minutes and
seconds display.
3. 24 hour hand, permanently synchronized with the normal
12 hour hand.
A. SETTING THE TIME
1. Pull the crown out to position “3” (See diagram). If the crown has
a “screw-down” lock, then unscrew the crown lock first by turning
the crown toward you, then pull it to position “3”. Do not forget to
screw the crown back “IN” after all setting is completed.
2. Turn the crown towards you (hands moves clockwise) until the
date changes at approximately midnight.
3. Continue turning the hour and minute hands to the correct time.
If it is afternoon you must go past 12 o’clock again (noon) to set
the correct time.
4. When the correct time is set,push crown back to position “1”.
B. SETTING THE DATE
1. Pull crown to position “2”(See proceeding diagram).The watch
will continue to run.
2. Turn the crown away from you until the correct date appears.
3. Once the date is set, push the crown back to position “1”.
Note: Do NOT set the date between the hours of 8:00 PM and
3:00 AM.This would not damage the watch,but the date may need
to be reset later.
C. CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO) ADJUSTMENT
If the chrongraph second hand is not positioned at the proper
starting position (12 o’clock or “zero” position), use the below
procedure.It does not need to be repeated unless the watch
receives an impact sufficient to move the hand out of position, or
the Battery has been changed.
1. Pull crown out to position “3”.
2. Push button “A” to move the Chrono Second hand (long hand) to
the “0” or 12 o’clock position. Each button push will move the
hand one step – BUT holding the button down will advance the
hand rapidly.
3. Push crown back to position “1”.
D. USING THE CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO)
Note:
The maximum chrono reading is 60 minutes, However the
chrono will continue running once 60 minutes has passed. The
resulting one hour periods may be added together mentally to keep
track of longer periods.
For example – If you know that approximately one hour has
passed since you started the chronograph, and the chrono reads
25 minutes, then you know that the chrono has been running 60
minutes plus 25 minutes, which is one hour and 25 minutes.
1. Push Button “A” to start the chronograph. Push button “A” again
to stop the chronograph.
2. Push button “B” to return the two chronograph hands to the
“Zero” or starting point.
3. The Chronograph can be stopped and started again
(Button “A”), repeatedly, to “ADD” times together.

How do I adjust date of my watch bought from GAP


I think I figured it out: (Start + Reset) = toggle alarm on/off ("ALM" will display in upper left corner when alarm is on. (press Mode once) will bring you in chrono mode, where "start" button starts and stops the chrono, and "reset" button resets it back to zero (press Mode once more) will bring you to setting of time for alarm. Set the "hour" value by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "minute" value by pressing "start" repeatedly (press Mode once more) will bring you to setting of time for actual time. Reset the "Seconds" value to zero by pressing "start" button once, then press "reset" and set the "minute" value by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "hour" value by pressing "start" repeatedly (if it shows "H" in upper right corner, time will be displayed euro-style 0:00-23:59, if it shows "A" time will be displayed 12am/12pm), then press "reset" and set the "day of month" value by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "month" value (1-12) by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "day of week" value (Su-Sa) by pressing "start" repeatedly (press Mode once more) voila!
