    Maybe I didn't describe my watch correctly. It is a Timex Ironman Triathlon chrono. The battery is covered by a delicate metal thing that I can't budge.

  • mikedoud Oct 10, 2009

    Not sure we are talking about the same thing. I'm not able to budge this metal cover with a knife for fear of snapping something off

  • mikedoud Oct 10, 2009

    I just got it loose. Once I get the correct replacement, will let you know if I need more help.

    Thanks

  • mikedoud Oct 10, 2009

    I got it. Thanks

It's just stuck and will need a gentle pry from the tip of a small knife blade to pop it up.

Hi,

Battery Replacement:
1. Unscrew and remove four screws on back of watch. (Depending on your model, you may have to take the watch band off. Also, you could simply remove 3 screws completely and one just unscrew halfway so that you can pivot off the watch backing plate... that's what I do.)
2. Remove Watch Backing Plate (or pivot off if you just unscrewed three and loosened one).
3. Unscrew the three (or four, depending on your model) screws holding the Battery Brace. (Or completely unscrew two while only loosening the brace enough to pivot off. Don't worry about mixing these screws with the Backing Plate ones, as these are noticeably smaller).
4. Peal the Battery off the undercarriage of the Battery Brace.
Once you remove (or pivot off) the Battery Brace, you'll see the battery stuck with a sticky tape-like material to it; merely "peal" off the battery.
5. Get New Battery. The dead battery you took out of the watch has numbers on the back. Bring it with you to a drug store (or where ever you go for batteries) and get a battery with the same numbers. A drug store will do, as most watch batteries are fairly standard.
6. Replace Battery. Replace battery reverse of the way you took the dead one out.
7. Put it all Back Together.
BONUS:
As soon as you replace the battery (stick it on the Battery Brace) and screw the Battery Brace into its original seat, either quickly flip the watch over and look at the read-out OR hit the reset switch (the reset switch is a metal contact "finger" that can be pressed to touch another piece of metal).
On the read-out you will see the watch go through a Power On routine that it does the very first time it is powered on. Check it out. It's pretty cool.

Note - Sometimes on these watches, replacing Batteries are big pain.So, make sure you do not screw anything while changing Battery.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Back has NO screws. How do I easily remove it to replace the two batteries?


Hi, You may know that this watch runs on two batteries, one for digital display and another for analog hands.
If the analog hands stop working all you need to do is to replace the battery and please replace both at the same time since the band and cover take some effort to remove.
You need to take off the both bands first to access the back side than the back cover with a small knife..
Just in case,if you need the user manual here is the link.

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).

How do you replace the battery in a ironman triathlon sleek digital watch


Thank you for contacting FIxYa.
Turn your Timex Ironman face down and remove the four screws holding the back cover in place.
  • Remove the back case cover by gently prying it up with your screwdriver. Be careful to avoid disrupting any electrical contacts with the tip of your screwdriver.
  • Remove the interior sticker that covers the battery by lifting it up with the tip of your screwdriver. It should come off relatively easily. At this point the small circular battery should be visible in the compartment.
  • Lift up the small metal clip (battery strap) that covers the battery using the tip of your screwdriver.
  • Remove the battery from its housing and replace it with your new battery (available at any electronics store or online). Reassemble the watch in the same way you to took it apart.
