Question about Timex Watches

3 Answers

This Timex Marathon digital watch is the greatest, and I have had it for about 30 years. During this time, with the help of the instruction booklet, I have had no problem in adjusting it. Time-date is the setting I prefer. Perhaps it was a week ago, it slipped into Time-seconds all by itself, and I cannot get it back to Time-date. I notice on Page 3 that it will auomatically adjust the date "through the year 2009". Is this the problem? That it has just run out of steam? Can you suggest a way to get it back to Time-date? I love this watch. Thankyou. Joyce Putnam

    There are no instructions for "changing the setting to manual"

    Thank you. I am showing my age myself, so I can understand the watch is tired. It has served me well, and I wonder if Timex has a similar one for sale now. Can you advise me? Joyce

This might be a symptom of low battery power. Quite often logic circuits will begin to behave oddly when they are not receiving enough power. If your battery is relatively new, or you replace it and the watch continues to behave oddly, then your watch is just showing it's age. The automatic date adjustment the manual mentions normally refers to correct adjustments for leap years. You might want to take it to your local watch repair site and have them take a look at it. If you need parts to repair it you'll be out of luck as the watch's age precludes anyone still having parts.

Hi Joyce,

Thanks for using FixYa. The first thing you can try is to change the setting to manual. If still it gives you the same Time-Date try to replace its battery as its battery life is around 2-5yrs. Joyce even after replacing the battery if it does not work then its time for a new watch.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

How do i find a manual for my timex marathon wr50m digital white watch t5k805?


I'm guessing that your watch is described here
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Marathon-by-Timex-Digital-Mid-Size-Black-and-Silver-Tone-Watch/38229915
(at the bottom it says model = T5K805, name is marathon)
[also on Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/Timex-Womens-Marathon-Sports-Digital/dp/B00R4XTAJ8/ref=sr_1_3?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1421449802&sr=1-3&keywords=t5k805&pebp=1421449828860&peasin=B00R4XTAJ8)

Then.look down the list for marathon in this http://www.timex.co.uk/info/product-manuals-downloads
and choose the one of the three you want. The non GPS one is very short and not really what I'd call a manual. I hope this is what you need. Otherwise contact Timex

There are two ways to find the user manual for your Timex watch.


1. Find your watch on the list below and click on the language link for your manual.


2. Find the 3-digit module number located on the caseback of most Timex products and click on the corresponding language link for that number in the Module Table at the bottom of the page.

Just bought the Timex T5E291 marathon watch but cant set the time and date. Anyone got a solution


For setting instructions on all Timex watches go to Timex.com and download your manual.

Holding down the mode button will put you in set mode. You can then cycle through the fields and set the watch using the srt and rst buttons.
