Question about Timex Sports Ironman Triathlon 100-Lap 66801 Wristwatch

1 Answer

Timex Ironman My watch has frozen up. None of the buttons work. It happened when I stopped the chronograph at the end of a race. I don't think the battery is dead because the display is flashing. Any ideas?

    I have the old Timex Triathlon 8-lap Indiglo watch with the two start and stop buttons on the face. My chronograph started to act wonky and further usage of it caused the clock to reset to 12:00:00 1/1 and freeze. I held down all five buttons on the watch for about 10-15 seconds. The display quickly flashed and the clock started! This advice works!

    Alright, I had the same problem and held all five buttons in. Now my watch is blank. There is no display. What now?

How do you "unfreeze" a champion c9 wrist watch?


I am having the same problem. The battery is fine, the seconds are ticking away, but none of the side buttons work. The light doesn't come on and nothing happens with any of the others either. The only thing that did work was pressing all four of the buttons simultaneously, which seemed to totally reset the watch. The problem is it reset but didn't fix the buttons. So now I can't even see the correct time anymore.

How it works invicta clock mechanism ?


Your watch is battery powered or a 'quartz' watch. It is commonly refered to as a 'chronograph'. That is another word for stop watch.As well as telling time and the date, your watch can time how long an event lasts. For example, a horse race. You start the chronograph or stop watch when the horse starts and stop it when it crosses the finish line. When the next horse starts you need set it back to zero to time the next race.Operation is simple. The upper push button starts and stops the chronograph. Try it. Now with the chronograph stopped, push the bottom button. The hand return to the 12 o'clock position or the 'zero' position. Also notice the small dials on the dial or face of the watch. They record minutes and other increments of time. The large hand going around when you push the upper button is recording seconds. Hope this helps, Michael

How is it possible that my Chase Durer (model 240.34BB) F1 Racing Blk, the time (hours & seconds) stopped but the chronograph works perfectly?


Aldo,

Did you ever find an answer to your Chase Durer question. I have two watches of there's that are doing the same thing. If I leave the stem out they work fine, but that leaves them susceptible to water damage. b977@epix.net thanks

Hello , I own a timex iron man triatholon model no t5g691 , the problem is none of the buttons work . they only work when I press them all together to turn it off . I also went recently swimming with it...


this problem occur only if one of the buttons are stuck inside, because you cannot push two or more buttons at the same time unless that you have to reset the watch. 2nd probably the buttons of your watch didnot reached the contact inside, sometimes it needed to be cleaned and had to be lubricated. if still did not work. reset your watch using the reset button inside the watch. i hope this will help you a lot.

I haven't worn my fossil watch (FS 4337 model) for some time & decide to wear it & shook it, adjust it, & it dosn't work. Usually when I don't wear it for about 2 weeks, I shake it...


If you have a Fossil FS4337 Chronograph, shaking the watch shouldn't be doing anything other than exercising your muscles; the movement is a battery-driven quartz movement whose movement is controlled only by whether the stem has been pulled out (stopping the movement and saving power) or whether the battery still has enough power to activate the stepping motors that move the watch hands. Based on the symptoms that you've described, I would suggest that it's probably time to change your watch battery.

Often, when a watch battery is running low but isn't completely dead, pulling the stem into time-setting mode will stop the movement and permit the battery to "rest," giving it (briefly) a bit more reserve amperage to put out when you push the stem back in. That's how you can sometimes get a quartz watch to run for a few minutes after the battery appears to be dead. That may also be why your watch has started running again after you've set the time and date.

Fossil analog quartz watches tend to use silver oxide (usually #377 or #379) batteries instead of longer-lasting lithium batteries. In ordinary use, I would expect a silver oxide battery to provide between 1 and 2 years of service before it needs to be replaced. I can't remember if Fossil chronographs (which also use quartz movements) use a silver oxide or lithium battery. Lithium batteries often provide an additional year or two of service in analog watches, compared to silver oxide cells; digital watches using them supposedly may last as long as 10 years with a lithium battery, assuming you don't use the backlight or audible alarm functions. Note, however, that these batteries are different sizes and different voltages, so you can't substitute one for the other.

Finally, none of this advice applies if you have a Fossil watch with a true mechanical movement in it. In that case, gently shaking the watch may spin the winding rotor enough to start the watch back up again. However, an even faster way of winding those watches is to use the winding / time set crown to wind the mainspring directly instead of relying on the geared-down action of the winding rotor. Automatic watches can bind up if they are not used for a period of time; the lubricating oil used in some of the pivots can harden--or at least provide enough resistance that the movement may require more initial force to start running than to continue running. That behavior usually indicates that it's time to have the mechanical movement cleaned and re-lubricated.
