The 2 second beat is a visual indication the battery is nearing its life cycle.

Not uncommon for these batteries to be on the shelf for a long time.

Always test before install.

Hope this tip helps.

How do I reset my tissot t touch expert


Steps to Synchronize the Hands
  1. Press the centre pusher (T). The watch should beep once.
  2. Touch the centre of the touch-sensitive face until opt appears, in opt select 24H Cm (or 12H Fft or 24H Fft or 12H Cm) is shown in the digital LCD display.
  3. Press and hold the centre pusher (T) for approximately 5 seconds. The watch will beep once and then again, a second time, after 5 seconds have passed. After the second beep, the digital LCD display should read SYNCHRO. If not, return to step one.
  4. Press the upper pusher (+) to advance the hour hand until it is positioned exactly at 12:00. (PH press T button to to switch to minute hand adjust)
  5. Press the lower pusher (-) to advance the minute hand until it is also positioned exactly at 12:00.
  6. When both hands are aligned together and pointing directly at 12:00, press the centre pusher (T) to save the setting. The hands of the watch are now synchronized

My echodrive second hand skips 2 seconds the skips 1 second 2 tim


For sure you know EcoDrive watches are powered by light and all advertisements says: you will never have to change the battery. That's right - you will never have to change the battery, because there is no battery as we know. In your watch you have CAPACITOR, and it is the cell (sort of battery), recharging itself from the light consuming plate underneath the dial. Capacitor is not timeless, so, you have to replace it anyway. Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for replacement.

Wenger watch second hand pauses and skips ahead 4 seconds, it's keeping time find. Seems to just have started.


That is a low battery indicator. It will do that until the battery is replaced or is dead. When it does that it means its time to change the battery.

Second hand skips


This is warning: it's time to change the battery. Your watch is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature and this is how the low battery power is displayed. However, the watch will keep running correctly for about two weeks.

Tissot t-touch analog time is out of sync with digital time. How do I res-sync them?


This is the tried and tested solution from this very nice gentleman. Many thanks to him (Ha Bi):
  1. Press and hold on to the T button until it beeps
  2. Touch the middle of the screen to change digital display to unit selection
  3. Press and hold the T-button until "Synchronize" comes up in the digital display
  4. Use the + button and - button to align the hour and minute hand to 12:00.
  5. Click on the T-button again. Congrats, you're done!
  6. Enjoy~

Yes it's the battery. Please make sure to take it to someone QUALIFIED This watch requires that all the gaskets be replaced and pressure tested at the time you have the battery replaced

The 'meteo' function doesn't work when I press the watch face.


This seems to ba a common problem. On mine both the Meteo and Altimeter stoped working. Apparently these watches have a fault with the water proofing and should not be worn in water!

Skipping second hand


i have this problem too... it's for my gucci 5500M. i haven't tried replacing the battery, but i remember the second hand getting this problem when i had to change the time. i wonder if a small gear broke inside the watch, but the weird thing is that the time still stays on time.
