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.

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.

I changed my battery, now my side buttons don't engage to change time, date etc.

Take the back off and examine the buttons to find out what they are intended to do and what you must do to make sure that when you re-assemble it they operate correctly.

If you cannot manage to get the watch going, eat humble pie and take it to a watch repairer and ask them to sort it out for you.

Changed battery on ironman, watch got wet, now doesn't work

The bad thing about most Timex watches is that once you open them it is very hard to resael them again. The thing is that , the screws are metal, and your trying to tighten them into a plastic back. If you try to tighten them too much you mess up the tap. When the back is first put into the watch there is a very small hole. When they screw them in it's like a wood screw it taps itself in to the back. Once that has been done once it is very hard to keep the same tighteness it started with. Your best bet is to get a watch with a metal screw-on back with a metal casing too. That way you can tourque really hard and make sure the back is tight. If you decide to have the battery changed, make sure they silicon the seal.That's about as much protection agaist water you have with that watch.
