Question about Timex Marathon Night Light Watch

Open Question

I just replaced the watch battery on my Timex Marathon with the correct battery (CR1620). There was a sticker covering the battery that says "short ac pad and battery to reset". I'm not sure how to do this and my watch is not working. Thanks for your help!!!

Align the caseback exactly as it was before you opened it. Make sure thet the groove for stem is in correct position. Lay the napkin on the flat table surface, put the watch on it (dial down) and using both hands and your body weight push the caseback down back in place. Remember: the side of the caseback wich first came out must be last pushed in.
Do not use very soft napkin (towel) as this can brake the glass under the pressure.
If all above described DO NOT work, then there is not enough power in your hands or not enough weight in your body and you will need watchmakers help (he/she will be using special watch press to close the watch).
P.S. Do not get upset if you can not close it; I'm very expierenced watchmaker and very often came across the watches wich I was not able to close without the watch press (even my arms are quite strong and the weight is 95kg).

Do not forget to rate, please.

SOURCE: Replaced battery, now no beep.

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

You will find them on the module itself.
So after replacing the battery look on the PCB (printed circuit board) for the letters"AC" and "VSS". Adjacent to these markings there should be little contact points (probably gold or silver looking in colour)
Use a paper clip or similar and bridge (short) these two points simultaneously. Please rate my solution.

You know where AC pads are right? If you don't know, look at the sticker. there is an arrow on the sticker. An arrow points out 11'oclock.
After insert the bettery, you just touch the golden pads with metal screw. that is how to short AC pads.

How do i find a manual for my timex marathon wr50m digital white watch t5k805?


I'm guessing that your watch is described here
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Marathon-by-Timex-Digital-Mid-Size-Black-and-Silver-Tone-Watch/38229915
(at the bottom it says model = T5K805, name is marathon)
[also on Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/Timex-Womens-Marathon-Sports-Digital/dp/B00R4XTAJ8/ref=sr_1_3?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1421449802&sr=1-3&keywords=t5k805&pebp=1421449828860&peasin=B00R4XTAJ8)

Then.look down the list for marathon in this http://www.timex.co.uk/info/product-manuals-downloads
and choose the one of the three you want. The non GPS one is very short and not really what I'd call a manual. I hope this is what you need. Otherwise contact Timex

What type of battery is needed for the Timex Marathon T5G811 Stopwatch?


The obvious answer is to look for the numbers on the battery that is in it. If it doesn't have a battery then that gets a little tougher and you could probably contact Timex through the internet. Good Luck!

Just bought the Timex T5E291 marathon watch but cant set the time and date. Anyone got a solution


For setting instructions on all Timex watches go to Timex.com and download your manual.

Holding down the mode button will put you in set mode. You can then cycle through the fields and set the watch using the srt and rst buttons.
