Question about Timex 27191 Wristwatch

1 Answer

My solar powered 50-lap Ironman died after 1 month of normal use! Now it just stares blankly at me until I press any of the buttons, in which case it goes back to 12:00 and works for a couple of minutes just to humor me, before going dead again. Any tips?

I have exactly the same problem with my solar powered Casio watch.
I discussed it with a good jeweler and he explained that when you have sun, the watch 's battery will be charged up. But when the battery's charge is used up it works off a capacitor power source. But if the capacitor is defective(no available backup power) you then end up with a blank display. And it'll display the default settings(12:00) for a while only.
You can have a jeweler change the capacitor to get it working again.
For my $100+ watch, it'll cost me about $25 to replace the capacitor.
But for yours, the watch may not have cost that much and therefore
be hard to justify that cost.
I hope the explanation was not too technical for you. Good Luck.

Hello , I own a timex iron man triatholon model no t5g691 , the problem is none of the buttons work . they only work when I press them all together to turn it off . I also went recently swimming with it...


this problem occur only if one of the buttons are stuck inside, because you cannot push two or more buttons at the same time unless that you have to reset the watch. 2nd probably the buttons of your watch didnot reached the contact inside, sometimes it needed to be cleaned and had to be lubricated. if still did not work. reset your watch using the reset button inside the watch. i hope this will help you a lot.

How can i recall multiple laps during a run?


The Timex Ironman 30 Lap also has a stopwatch that can be used to keep track of split times for racing sports like running or cycling. Press the "Mode" button until the display shows "Chrono," then press and hold the "Set/Recall" button. To start the timer, press the "Start/Split" button. It will continue to run even if you exit to another mode. Pressing the "Stop/Reset" button will stop the chronograph. To record a split time, press the "Start/Split" button again while the timer is running. To see your split times, press the "Set/Recall" button while the watch is in Chrono mode. You can then scroll through the various splits with the plus and minus keys. Press "Set/Recall" again to exit display mode and return to the timer.

I cannot set anything on my timex ironman watch.


I fixed it but don't know exactly what I did. I think I pressed the mode (upper left) then the button on the lower right side to change the hour. But I'm not so sure. At least I didn't have to have my son do it for me.
