  • Turn your Timex Ironman face down and remove the four screws holding the back cover in place.
  • Remove the back case cover by gently prying it up with your screwdriver. Be careful to avoid disrupting any electrical contacts with the tip of your screwdriver.
  • Remove the interior sticker that covers the battery by lifting it up with the tip of your screwdriver. It should come off relatively easily. At this point the small circular battery should be visible in the compartment.
  • Lift up the small metal clip (battery strap) that covers the battery using the tip of your screwdriver.
  • Remove the battery from its housing and replace it with your new battery (available at any electronics store or online). Reassemble the watch in the same way you to took it apart.

  • OR take to a professional jewelry store/watchmaker.
    Good luck.

      extra timex ironman watch battery replacement tips:
      Buy watch batteries on amazon, they are 5 for the price of 1 at wal mart. $6.95
      The dollar store was $4 for 1 and that is another option.

      the gold spring must be above not under the metal ring that holds the batterry.
      the disc on the back of the casing is the speaker!
      That spring must contact the gold metal spring or the speaker wont chime

      sometimes you can put something together, and it all appears right, but it still doesn't work. This happened t o me.
      I took it apart again, and put it all back together seemingly the same way, and the 2nd try worked, but i don't know why.

      make sure it is fully functional before screwing the screws in.

      Put the back on without having the screws dangling from the wholes. I tried to insert the back and the screws at the same time and one of the screws flew at me and almost in my mouth!

    I bought an Anne Klein rectangular 2175 watch and I need to replace the battery, but a plastic covering is over the battery. Can I replace the battery myself or do I have to take it to a jeweler?

    Take you Anne Klein watch to a jeweler who will not only show you the correct way to open it for battery replacement but also may be persuaded to replace the battery for a reasonable sum.

    I can't find a replacement battery, I have 2 3

    Go to "" and you will find an order form with prices for repairs and battery replacement.

    It may seem expensive for a replacement battery but if you see the number of people who can't get their watches to go after battery replacement, you wouldn't hesitate to send them off.

    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.

    Watch going in reverse

    There is no difference in watch batteries as they are produced by the certain standards. That means you have replaced the right battery.
    The simplest solution would be re-replacing the battery. Just take the battery out and leave the watch without battery for 5 minutes, then put the battery back. Make sure the battery is fitted the right way (the + side usually facing up).
    If this doesn;t help - let me know.

    Rate, please.
