Question about Timex 50-Lap Ironman Triathlon 59221 Wrist Watch

Open Question

50-Lap IronmanTriathlon battery replacement question: I have the back off and have unscrewed the 2 screws holding the battery plate on. I've put the new battery in, but I'm not sure if it's position matters. On the orange plastic cover of the batter plate, there is a dot with the letters BRU. Is that significant? Then it also says "after battery insertion-press to reset w/an arrow pointing to a pad labeled AC. There is a little metal piece from the battery plate protruding to this pad. Is that what I push - with what?

I have a Timex Digital Heart Rate Monitor 585 (product code T5C351F5)m, which has the same Short AC Pad and battery +ve message. There is an arrowhead pointing to the pad. It's a raised metal platform - a bit different to some of the Ironman's mentioned above. Here is a pic...6e1fe0e.jpg

If you don't have the proper tools I recommend that you not do this yourself. You could scratch the case or damage the movement if you don't know what you're doing. If it's a water resistant watch the gasket also needs to be replaced once it is opened. DO NOT reuse a gasket! For about $8 any watch or jewelry2_bing.gif store can change the battery and renew the gasket for you.

I know the secret behind CASIO's "OPEN" problem.  This is not a joke.  You'll be happy to get your watch working again.  Because the procedure is too long to fit in here, send me an e-mail at s.duteau@videotron.ca and I'll send you the solution.  This is no scam.

I bought a watch and we can't get it to work. We think the battery needs to be changed.


If you take a look at the back of the watch, look for screws holding on the back plate. If there are screws (usually, if they are there there is one in each corner -- unscrew them. If there are no screws in the back of the watch, look VERY carefully at where the backing for the watch connects to the front piece of the watch. There should be a small indentation somewhere along the rim -- use a knife or a small screwdriver in that groove and pop the watch backing off.
Once you have the back of the watch off, you will see the battery right there. Sometimes they just pop out (held in by the watch back) ... sometimes there is a small piece of metal holding it in (in which case you should try to rotate the metal piece off the battery -- don't bend it).
Once the battery is out, take it to a store that sells watch batteries and match the battery type exactly (a lot of watch batteries look the same, but you need an exact match). Put the new battery in, cover it with the metal tab (if there was one) by rotating the tab back over the battery like you found it. Put the watch backing back on (and replace the screws if there were any).
Hopefully, that will kick start your watch for you, and you should be all set :-)

How to change battery


  • Spread the towel out on a flat surface.
  • Remove the watchband if necessary in order to access the back of the watch.
  • Unscrew the back protector from the watch using the correct size miniature screw driver. Place the screws in a small pile on the towel. Be careful not to drop them as they are difficult to find.
  • Remove the back plate by unscrewing the small screws. There is a tiny spring on the underneath of the back plate. It may be visible, or not. Make sure not to turn the watch upside down or the spring will dislodge.
  • Remove the rubber protector to find the battery.
  • Use sharp point tweezers to remove the clasp covering the battery. There is a small hole at one end of the clasp. Insert one end of the tweezers into the hole to spring the clasp loose.
  • Remove the old battery with tweezers.
  • Insert New Battery and Reassemble Watch
  • Pick up the new battery using regular tweezers and put it into place. Do not touch the battery with your fingers.
  • Replace the clasp over the top of the new battery.
  • Perform a reset by touching the AC contact with one part of the tweezers and the back of the battery with the other part. Hold for a few seconds. Lift the watch carefully and look up at the front to make sure the watch is working. Do not turn the watch over.
  • Replace the rubber cover.
  • Replace the back plate by screwing the small screws back into place.
  • Replace the back protector by screwing the small screws back into place.
  • Reattach the watch band to the watch face.

    Battery replacement procedure for Casio 901 DW-5600?


    hi, if the back plate on the watch the part that is against your wrist has four screws holding the silver back plate onto the actual watch then you need to undo these four screw, once undone you lift the back plate off and then this gives you access to the battery, the screws are small philips (cross head screw) so you will need a small screw driver, their is also a little bracket that holds the battery in place you can either push this over to allow the battery out or undo the small screw that holds this bracket in place this will then allow the battery to fall out,

    If their are no screws in the back plate then all you need to do is get a very fine flat head screwdriver and look around the edge of the back plate and you should see a little bit on one of the edges that allows you to put a screwdriver into to allow you to lever the back plate off if it has no screws then its just a push fit so just pry the back off and this will give you access to the battery then like above the battery will be held in place by small bracket undo this then remove the battery.

    when fitting the new battery make sure you dont touch the top and bottom of the battery as this will flatten it really quick so just push it in place then refit the bracket then either push the back plate back on or screw it back on depending on the type of back plate once this is done you watch will be working again

    POD watch battery replacement. No problem removing back of the watch - (waterproof / 4 small screws), however the battery is held in place under a ''cage'' type of cover and not the usual single spring...


    Unscrew the screws holding that contact. Memorize where each screw was - they can be different in length. Fit new battery, put contact back in place and screw all screws back exactly where they were. After that you may need to shortcut battery's+ and AC point (marked on movement) for resetting your watch. Use tweezers to do that. Rate me, plz.

    How do you unlatch the battery of a timex ironman watch. I have the back open now


    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

    Size 377 battery wont go in - need to unscew something?


    I presume that a 377 battery is the same number as what came out. Sometimes there is a small piece of metal that is a strap that helps hold the batter in. Usually, then there is a very small screw that you have to loosen to remove the plate or just move it a bit to get the battery in. Be sure that the battery is not upside down from the way that the original was placed in. Also when putting in a new battery be sure that you don't use metal tweezers to hold the battery as it will short the battery and discharge it. Use your fingers or plastic tweezers.

    I wish to replace the battery myself, how do I do this?


    Polar tells its customers to send watches to them for battery replacement. But the Polar Fitwatch is too old (may have been introduced in 1997?), and they no longer support it. So the only solution is to replace the battery some other way.

    For most people I'd say go to a store that sells watches, they'll replace the battery for a fee.

    For those who are handy, you can replace it yourself. I did mine yesterday.

    The battery is a common type - CR 2032.

    You'll need a small screwdriver, philips type, I think. Maybe around 00, or thereabouts. And you need tweezers, preferably with a rubberized grip.

    There are four screws holding the back plate. Remove three, and loosen the fourth. Slide the back plate aside.

    I unscrewed the screws, then used the tweezers to take them out. They're a bit small for your fingers to get a good grip on them.

    The battery is held by a plastic holder that's held by 4 screws. These are (to my eyes) slightly smaller than the ones holding the back plate, so please keep those separate - and keep track of all the screws.

    Remove the plastic holder, and make sure you keep track of the spring that's between the holder and the back plate. It'll likely fall out when you turn the holder over.

    The holder keeps the battery with a small prong, but it's easy to slide out the battery. Replace the battery, getting the orientation right, making sure you don't touch either side with your bare fingers. This part is easier than it sounds.

    Replace the holder, and of course you noted beforehand what the orientation was, so you get it in the same position.

    Use the tweezers to drop each screw into its hole, then screw it in.

    By this time, the watch will probably start beeping when you tighten one of the screws, because you depress one of the buttons on the front.

    Put the spring back in its hole, then slide the backplate back into place, and drop the screws in place with tweezers and tighten one by one.

    You should be able to find a manual (which doesn't cover battery replacement procedure) by searching for polar fitwatch manual.

    Timex Sleek stopped beeping when I replaced the battery


    This is a common problem when non watch educated people are changing battries themselves.
    The answer is simple: While changing battery and handling the watch you did lost the coil spring. It is so small, you will never notice that the something was dropped.
    Coilspring is the connector to the sound membrane of the watch, transfering microprocessor signals to audible membrane.
    If it's lost, there is no connection between watch movement and audio membrane.
    I suggest that you did change batteries yourself previously and had the same outcome (no sound). Next time you gonna change the battery - make sure you do not turn the watch upside down and if you do - check the movement with eyeglass and make sure all the loose fitted bits are in place.
    To get your both watches fixed visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for coilspring to be fitted.

    Rate me, please.

    Ironman Watch correct way to change battery


    It really is best to have a professional install it, but if you would like to attempt to try it yourself, you will need certain tools. Take a small phillips-head screwdriver and remove the four screws on the back of the watch. Take off the back. Be careful not to mess up the seal (rubber round gasket). You will see a battery strap with three prongs with screws holding down your lithium battery. Unscrew any two of the three screws, and using a tweezer, pull out the battery. Put in the same number battery (probably 2016) making sure to insert it positive side up. Rescrew the screws. Next to one of the screws that you unscrewed, there will be another piece protruding off the battery strap, which almost hits the circuit board. Take your tweezers and lightly press it down to make contact and hold for 3 seconds. Replace your backing and screws.
