I can't set the day of week on my Casio, CA-53W. Thanks

If the day of the week is incorrect, make sure the date is set correctly. The format on the Casio CA-53W is year first, then month, then day last.

I have a square Freestyle watch. It keeps beeping, can't trn off

You can try taking the battery out and waiting a minute or two then replace but you should probably have a watch maker/technician "AC" or clear the watch. This involves resetting the circuit board and only takes a moment. I would also have them reseal the watch and pressure test it as Freestyle's are made to be in water and you will want to maintain the water resistance.

Acqua Indiglo water resistant watch with alarm 30m

Press and hold the MODE button (bottom left) for approximately 3 seconds.

When the Alarm set time starts flashing, press the MODE button once more. Now the seconds for the watch time should be flashing.

Use the START/STOP button (top right) to move bewteen items and the SPL/RESET button (bottom right) to change the item.

Moving between all items, it will take you through: seconds, minutes, hours, month, date, day of the week. Simply press MODE when your settings are complete.
