The easiest way it to take your Timex watch to a jeweler who will demonstrate how to remove the back and may be persuaded to install a replacement battery - all for a reasonable sum.

SOURCE: watch battery replacement

I have a Timex Expedition Indigo with a metal case. Not sure of the exact model number but on the back there an M6 below Expedition. Anyway, I had the same problem of snapping the back back on. I found a "battery" website that had some suggestions that should be typical of any snap back case watch. http://www.online-batteries.co.uk/whichbattery.shtml specifically they said that when you try to press the back on it must be flat (not one edge down as I had been trying) Put the watch face down on a non scratch surface and press with both thumbs evenly. If that doesn't work a press will be needed. If you have a vice a couple of blocks of wood to distribute the load on the front and back may work, otherwise take it to a jeweler with the proper equipment. The thumb routine didn't work for me. I have a vice but figured many wouldn't so I tried something else first. I put the watch face down on a piece of wood. I found a small 2" long scrap of wood (3/4" x 1.5" approx) that spanned the back. I centered the back (aligned properly) placed the block of wood squarely and centered across the back and tapped the end of the block with a hammer. First try didn't work, second one did. I used a rubber mallet as the hammer but a regular hammer or other heavy object would work. The trick, I think, is to get everything lined up and square so the blow is centered and even. Also, I'd suggest cleaning the back and the groove in the case and be sure the rubber gasket is properly positioned. This will give you the best chance of retaining the waterproofing. And remember to check that the watch is running before you do this. Some need to be reset (usually with a very small screwdriver or pin) after replacing the battery. There should be a small hole with some printing next to it. You may need a magnifying glass to see/read it. Good Luck, Richard

SOURCE: How do I release the

I just had this problem, and my 8 year old and I had to fiddle a bit to figure it out.

Just to confirm, you have removed the back cover and taken the watch guts out of the face and strap assembly and are looking at the battery which has a cover over it and maybe a sticker on the cover that says "unlatch to remove battery", with two >'s, one pointing to to each side?

On each side there are two small metal tabs, which surround a small moulded-in plastic piece with an opening in the middle.

The release is in that opening in the plastic piece. You need to fish around in that opening a little to catch the release and push it outward toward the edge of the watch (away from the battery). You need something very small to do this with, like a straight pin. If successful, the cover pops up on one side and then you do the same on the other side.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Can't get the back plate of a Timex Indiglo WR30M watch back on

It is either a screw on case back or a "snap-on. I suspect that it is the latter since you don't mention that you used a tool to unscrew the case back. So getting the back on sometimes is very difficult. I have a special tool for that to apply even pressue and the necessary force and does not put pressure on the crystal. You have to be careful to not damage the crystal. If you don't get it done, then suggest you take it to a shop that has the right tool. If you have very strong thumbs you might get it done.

I have a Timex Ironman T563719J. The digital clock is working, but the analog portion has stopped. Any ideas?


There are two batteries in the watch. One for the digital watch and the other for the analog watch. The battery for the analog side probably needs changing but when the back is opened, you might as well change both batteries.

I have a Timex Ironman 30-Lap Mid watch with a dead battery. I purchased a CR 2016 battery as stated on the back cover of the watch. How do I change the battery?


This one is quite simple. Just remove the watch back with a watch case knife and flick out the old cell then carefully press in the new one (VERY carefully as the movement is made of plastic). fit the back exactly the way it came off (note the direction of the writing).

I have a timex watch with both analogue and digital.... only the digital is working after a battery change. What do you recommend


Hi,

Take the battery out again and let the watch "rest" for a couple of hours without the battery. That sometimes resets the Quartz mechanism, and will allow a clean restart. Also, refer to the following info if needed.

Timex has two ways to find information about your particular watch. Some of these models only have a guide consisting of a few pages. If you don't have the manual, Try this link:

Complete Timex link site:
http://www.timex.com/info/Product_Instruction_Guides_Downloads

Now, look up the model number, or if you cannot find that, check the three-digit Module Number from the back of the watch. Click on it in the Module Table, and download a PDF of your watch setting-instructions/manual.

If you need further help, call Timex in Little Rock, Arkansas, phone 1-800-448-4639.

I hope this helps you. Thanks, Bill

Hello, I just bought a Timex Acqua with Indiglo


Depending on when you bought your Timex, you shouldn"t need a battery just yet, your Timex came with a good battery. Look under the stem (winder) for a small piece of plastic that is not allowing the stem to go all the way down, remove that piece of plastic and push the stem down and your Timex will start. Or if your Timex has buttons, look for a tab of plastic on the back cover, this tab of plastic is keeping the battery from (ground) a complete circuit remove this tab of plastic to start your Timex. Changeing the battery while fairly easy, you"d need jewelers screwdrivers and of course the new battery, Best Bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change.

Timex Men's Digital Expedition Chrono Alarm Timer Watch battery


hi
please follow the steps to change the battery
  1. Step 1 Make sure the little arrow on the back is aimed to the right. Then, insert a small flat head screwdriver into the notch on the edge, and lever the back open. Place the back to one side.
  2. Step 2 Unscrew the clip holding the battery (if your model has a clip), and remove the battery.
  3. Step 3 Use plastic tweezers to put in a new battery. Do not directly touch the new battery. Screw the clip (if it has one) back on.
  4. Step 4 Replace the gasket that seals the watch. Then lightly coat the gasket with a silicone-based grease.
  5. Step 5 Align the back with the little arrow aimed to the right again, then carefully press the watch between two pieces of wood that are being held by a small vise, until the back seats itself.
thank you....
