Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".
Offhand, I would say yes to the battery replacement. Though watches are not within my immediate field. This would be based on your post "2-5 minutes behind". As to the "lost signal" after a reset, may I request that you post back the specific model number pls.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

The contact springs most likely have nothing to do with your screen being black.
The watch will have an "AC" or all clear function that needs to be performed. Check the back lid for AC or reset instructions. If there are no instructions there then you will have to visit a watch repairman/technician to have this procedure performed as it involves touching the AC pad on the circuit board to the back of the battery already installed. The circuit board is easily damaged if not performed properly.

Clean the contacts. Get the sharp needle and scrape both contacts. If it does not work, you need a watchmakers help. Rate me, plz.

I'll post in case somebody still needs this. This is the general
procedure to switch the ATC 1200 from meters to feet. You can also
switch the ATC 1200 (1170) from C to F. This is very helpful if you
change the batteries and the watch gets reset to meters.
Also note, when you pull out the two batteries, you may not get the watch to come up. This is because of a race condition when the watch gets power. To fix this, look for the AC mark on the inside of the watch. Under this marking, in a little space to the left, are two copper pads. Short this out with a small screw driver to get the watch to ground zero.
To fix the Metric measurements:
1. Go to the home screen on the watch. This is when the the 3 letter abbr for the day is at the top. Also, if you cycle the mode button, it is the screen where the final beep is "high."
2. Then press the "memory" button, which will take the home display to the data screen. This shows current time, pressure and temperature.
3. Hold down the adjust button, until the set screen comes up.
4. Tab the mode/select button on the watch until you get a flashing C. Then press the memory button to toggle to F.
You can adjust all the measurements from this screen.
