I dont know how to change the time on my decathlon geonaute watch


I nearly went crazy pushing buttons, but finally got the right combination. From the normal Time Display (as you would normally use the watch, no need to push any buttons) Push and Hold for a few seconds the Lap/Reset Button. The "Set" Mode will become active. Release the Lap/Reset button when Set appears in the Display. Notice in the Display a small Arrow that points to a button, either the ST/STP or Mode Button. (Initially it will be the ST/STP Button). When you depress the button to which the arrow points, the Field Flashing in the display will be set (For ST/STP) or Changed to the next Field (When the Arrow Points to the Mode Button). Simply toggle through the fields (using the Mode Button) and set (using the ST/STP Button) as needed. You will also be offered the ability to set the Month, Date, Day, 12/24 HR, and a M-D (It stands for Month - Date, in Europe it's more common to display as Date - Month). I did not change this field since by default on my watch it displayed M - D first. The setting cycle will be finished off when you have set the various fields by again pushing the Lap/Reset Button. Not related to setting the watch, but possibly useful, the Watch will completely reset if all the buttons are pushed at the same time, including pushing the Display Light (or in the case of this watch, the illumination used for the Display Characters). Hope this helps, it worked for me.

After I changed a battery on R0614ZM TERNER watch, the display went berzerck and then blank altogether. Any ideas at all?


Some watches have a "reset" button or combination of buttons that must be pushed to clear all the electronic registries on the watch's little computer after you replace the battery. You might try taking off the watch back and seeing if your watch has this requirement. Even then, it's not always a perfect solution. Last week, I replaced the battery in a watch that had been dead for some time. The watch appeared to come alive again when I put the new battery in, but when I pushed the reset pin (on this movement, it was on the watch movement itself, next to the battery), the entire watch went dead. Nothing I did would wake it up. I removed the battery, waited 30 seconds, then re-inserted the battery. Problem solved; the watch powered up, and I was able to set the time and access all functions again.
On some digital watches from the 1980s, after replacing the batteries, you were supposed to push and hold all the external buttons for a few seconds to reset the watch. I don't think manufacturers still make watches that respond to this, but it is easier to try than taking off the back and re-installing the battery.

I have a AW60448W stopwatch that I can't get the alarms to turn off.


AW60448W Stopwatch

Okay, now you have an excellent Stopwatch but don't know how to set it up. Well, I had the same problem but a friend of mine wanted one also and after I bought it for him, he being an old guy, could not read the small print that came with the Stopwatch. I have gone to the trouble of typing it up and you can benefit from this.

Now I don't expect you will send me any donation/money but if the mood strikes you, I will accept no more than $3.00 cash.

How do I turn off the hourly chime on a Wal-Mart Athletic Works stopwatch?
The way to do it is push the "light" button, then the "set" button. If the hourly chime is active, the days indicators will all be highlighted, if it's disabled, they will be turned off too. Basically it's the same as turning the alarm on/off, but instead of using the "start/stop" button, you use the "set button".

I have an athletic works stopwatch. All it says on the front is chronograph. I bought it at Walmart. It has 3 buttons on the top and one on the bottom. I can't find the directions. I can't get it to...


I have the same Athletic Works stopwatch. I just figured out how to turn off the alarm: press either of the two mode buttons (middle top, or bottom right) until you see the regular time displayed (the seconds will be changing, but nothing else, and nothing will be flashing). Press and hold the reset button (top left); while holding down the reset button, press the start/stop button (top right). Watch the bell icon on the display in the upper right corner; with each press of the start/stop button you will see the bell either appear or disappear. When the bell disappears, release the reset button. The alarm is now off.

I have the AW21312W, which has 4 buttons:


  1. Light (Top left)
  2. Mode (Bottom Left)
  3. Start/Stop (Top Right)
  4. Lap/Reset (Bottom right)
To turn the set alarm off, push buttons 3 and 4 at the same time, the alarm icon should appear or disappear

To turn off the hourly chime, press button 4. While holding it down, press button 2 and the days of the week disappear. The chime is now off. If you want the chime, press button 4 and hold while you press button 2. When all the days show, the chime is on.

Polar F6 - Battery replaced, display corrupt after watch loads.


I had the same problem and attempted what banjodoug suggested above. It did not help. I had a faint display even before I re-inserted it into my watch frame. I surmised it wasn't the battery position.

I then took apart the damn thing and put it back together several times, each time rushing to push the setting/center button only to derive the same problem over and over.

I then took it apart one more time and pinched in all of the sides of the metal frame that holds it all together, thinking that I had a bad ground. After I did that, I reassembed it and waited. The display came on with the test display and then eventually went to the standard display on its own and all was good to go.

I suspect the issue was solved by correcting an improper ground and a proper initialization process - both solved by the steps I took above.

Hope it works for you!
