If you had the battery replaced, I'm guessing that the watch wasn't working when you brought it in for a new battery. It may not have needed a new battery. You might need a new watch. I've never heard of anyone needing a clamp for a Timex digital watch. In my experience, they use phillips screws to hold the back to the case. I have a case press for snap-on backs, but that's still unusual for a Timex unless it has a BIG case. I think your watch was shot before you replaced the battery.

I cannot replace the back of a timex 1854 watch. I replaced the battery but the back won't click on


I used a four inch "C" clamp and a large washer about diameter of back, to get my Timex back snapped back on. Place the watch face side down on a flat surface cushioning the crystal with soft rubbery material like shelf liner or anti skid material used under rugs (the kind used to also line tool chest drawers - black). Place the washer between the watch back plate and the "C" clamp screw plate. Align the back plate of the Timex as evenly on watch as possible while gradually tightening the "C" clamp. Keep turning down the "C" clamp ever so slowly until you hear the plate snap back on.

My Timex Indeglo watch does not have any means of opening the watch so I can replace the battery. It kept perfect time when it ran, but now it does not run at all. Is it supposed to be a disposable watch...


  • If you don't already know what size battery you need, you can find this information on the back plate of your watch. Once you have your replacement battery, you will need to open the back of the watch to gain access to the battery compartment. Depending on the watch, the back plate will either screw off or be attached by a few small screws. If attached with screws, you will need a set of precision screwdrivers such as a jewelry or eyeglass kit.

    Inside the battery compartment, you will see the battery is held down by a clip. Carefully remove the clip and eject the battery. Insert the new battery and replace the clip. If the battery clamp indicates you should do so, quickly press the reset button twice. Then reattach the back of the watch. If the watch display remains off after replacing the battery, press all buttons at the same time to reset the display.

    I have a timex HRM. The indigo light just stopped working. I've had it for 3 weeks. There is a faint light on the edge, but it doesn't illuminate the face. Everything else works normal. Any ideas?


    Check out if your watch has second battery for Indiglo function. It is quite common for Timex watches to have two batteries - one for movement and another for Indiglo.

    Indiglo has died on over 10 of my Timex watches


    If they have replaced that many watches in that short period, I'm going to say that it isn't the watch.

    Timex watches are equipped with some of the largest and strongest batteries in the industry and have some of the best reserve potentials. Have you ever replaced a battery and did it make a difference?

    Do you use a magnetic bracelet or work around strong magnetic fields - either of which can deplete a battery - generally in about four months? If so, put the bracelet and watch on opposite wrists. This is usually not a problem with a digital watch. I suspect it's because the magnet makes the analog movement work harder and depletes the battery faster.

    And some people just can't wear a certain watch. My mother is one of them. There is something electrical or magnetic about my mother that keeps her from wearing a mechanical watch. When I was a kid, the only watch she could wear was a green plastic Davy Crockett watch.

    And 50 years ago, my left handed brother gave me his hand-me-down Timex when it quit working for him. I put it on my left wrist and got several more years of wear out of the watch. I think he wore out the movement on one side wearing it on his right wrist and I wore out the jewels on the other side wearing it on my left wrist.

    How to replace battery for Timex expedition


    Remove the four screws that hold the battery cover on the back of the watch. Remove the 3 very small screws that hold the battery in place. Remove the battery from the battery holder. The piece that the 3 small screws were removed from seperates from the 3 volt 2016 energizer battery. Replace the battery with a new one. Re-install the battery holder to the watch. There is a small tab on the lower left part of the battery holder that needs to be depressed to activate the watch. Depress it and look at the face of the watch to make sure it is activated. The watch will need to have the time, date etc reset but you should now be able to see that the battery is working. Replace the battery cover and reset the time and date as needed.
