It's not ok. Usual specs are +/- 1-2 secs a month, no more.
Try battery change first and if it doesn't help, go and see your nearest watcmaker to solve the problem.

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.

Use the numbers on the back of your watch and you will have a PDF version of your instruction manual.

Hope this tip helps

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

To open watch case, hold back of watch up with arrow pointer on the back plate pointing to the right. There is a pry point on the upper edge where you will see a small arrow pointing. Use a small flat end screw driver to pry the watch case open. Be sure to replace the back the same way with the arrow pointing away from the setting knob.
Take a 1-1/4 inch paddle bit and drill a hole in a 1-3/4 inch wide piece of wood about 1/8 inch deep. Then take another piece of wood about 2 inches long by 3/4 inch thick by 1 inch wide to lay across the back of the case plate. Place the crystal of the watch in the drilled hole. Used a vise or clamp with the watch between the two blocks of wood to press the back on. Be careful not to over press. Works great

How to remove stem on timex indiglo WR 30M ?


Insane as it seems, apparently the Indiglo wr30m watch stem does NOT have either a set screw or a release button. No vice needed though, just good fingernails. Pull it out one click to the 'set time' position and pull it out some more and it comes out.

There is nothing wrong with your watch. Probably it's the one measuring heart rate and pulse (heart beats per second).
Use your users manual to set the watch.
By the way: Timex is one of the worst watch producers.

Changing the DAY on this analog watch.


On some analog Timex watches with a day/date window there are only two "pull-out" positions on the stem, one for changing the date and one for the time. To change the day you need to pull the stem all the way out and crank the hands through 24 hour periods until you get the day correct. Be sure that you have the correct AM/PM setting (if you are setting the watch after noon you need to advance the hands another 12 hours so that the day changes at midnight)
