  • Turn the Suunto over to view the backside. Insert the quarter in the coin slot located on the battery compartment cover. Turn the coin counterclockwise to the "Open" position marked on the back of the case.
  • Remove the battery compartment cover. Remove the old battery from the battery compartment. Make sure the o-ring and all surfaces are clean, dry and not damaged. Do not stretch the o-ring!
  • Place the new battery into the battery compartment (negative side down, positive side up). Make sure the o-ring is in its place, as to keep the Suunto waterproof. Place the battery compartment cover back onto the backside of the watch.
  • Insert the quarter back into the coin slot and turn the coin clockwise to the "Close" position marked on the back of the case.

  • If this doesnt work take to a jeweler who has tools.

    The ascent reading seems to be very inaccurate and the battery shows low after only a couple rides after installing a new battery. Anyone have a solution for the acent issue?

    You need to send the watch into Suunto for service. The watch is obviously having an issue if it will not hold charge with a new battery and the Altimeter is not working correctly.

    The Altimeters are Barometric pressure related and occasionally something goes wrong.

    My experience is that Suunto is very good about fixing and/ or replacing when this issue arises.

    If any battery operated watch starts losing time or displaying the incorrect time, this is usually indicative of a battery going bad and needing replacement. My Luminox 3100 started lagging in time and I noticed that the second hand would intermittently stop. I also have a Suunto Vector (Digital) wrist-top computer and the times along with the compass, altimeter, light and alarms all started to act crazy and all it happened to be was the battery being run down. Coincidentally the Suunto has a battery gage that only appears and flashes during low battery charge.
    BL: Try the simplest thing first, change your battery. Please be very careful not to break the O-ring on any watch that's waterproof/resistant as this will render the protection useless. Also if your watch is still under a manufacturer or vendor's additional warranty, get them to change it as not to void your warranty. 'Hope this helps!

    T6C failed after working OK for 1 day

    Try re-pairing the belt pod with the wrist-watch computer. Below text comes from page 37 of the T6c users manual.

    If you replace the belt battery or are having troubles with the signal reception, you need to re-pair your belt with your Suunto t6c.

    To re-pair the belt:
    1. Remove the belt battery
    2. Push the (new) battery into the compartment positive side down.
    3. In your Suunto t6c, enter the settings menu and enter GENERAL.
    4. Scroll to PAIR with [Lap +] and [Light -] and enter with [Mode].
    5. Scroll to HR BELT with [Lap +] and [Light -].
    6. Activate pairing with [Mode].
    7. Put the battery in with the positive side up and close the cover.
