On my Timex Expedition, not exactly an Ironman, there is a tiny screw on one side of a metal "clip" that holds the battery in place under a plastic/tape cover. Unscrew that screw, carefully. The other end slides into a slot opposite the screw. Replace the battery, noting the same side up as the one that comes out (CR 2016 in my case, about $2,99 at King Soopers.) Put the "slot tab" of the metal clip into the slot while holding the screw end higher up, then push down on the screw end and screw it in. The clip piece sorts of "arches over" the battery. I then replaced the plastic piece, then the back cover. But I had no beeps or sound, so, per this site, elsewhere, I turned the back cover 180 degrees and then it worked perfectly!

You will need to look for any screws holding down a plate over the battery. Sometimes these only need to be loosened and sometimes they have to be removed. Sometimes the plate can be lifter slightly and the battery slide out from underneath. I hope this helps you. Best luck

SOURCE: how do you unlatch the metal piece that holds the battery in?

If you see no screws holding the contact (you say metal piece), follow all the way down to that contact in to watch movement and you will find the point where it is hooked on to a tiny plastic hook.
Take fine pointed tweezers and pull the contact leg outwards. This will release the contact and the battery.

Rate me, please.

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.

The Timex Ironman manual and website says to take the watch to a repair facility. Nope! Do it yourself!

How to replace the battery in a Timex Ironman watch:

This is easier if you remove one of the rubbery wrist bands.

1. Take note of the position of the metal back cover. You'll need to reinstall it exactly as you see it in order to hear the alarm.

2. Remove the four screws that hold the metal back cover, and pry off the cover.

3. There is a round metal clip that holds the battery in place, covered with a transparent plastic cover which likely says, "Unlatch to remove battery". Within the center of each clip, there's a small opening just large enough for a straight pin to be inserted. A jewelers screwdrive won't work - use a straight pin. Insert a straight pin into the tiny opening at the edge of the clip, and wiggle it. The clip should release. You'll only need to unlatch one side of the battery retaining ring.

4. Gently pry up the batter retaining clip, then pry up the battery. Insert new battery.

5. Replace the clip.

6. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into a slot which has two "electrodes" or pins - they need to be shorted with the screwdriver to reset the watch. Just touch the screwdriver blade across the two pins to short it.

7. Reinstall the back cover but be sure to position the cover so the alarm sounding place ( a small disc attached to the inside back cover) will reside over the sounding spring.

8. Insert screws.
