Ironman Triathlon Sleek Ladies watch Band problem.

I just recently bought my second Ironman Triathlon Sleek Ladies watch. I gave up my first one because the rubber? band turned from a pretty pastel green to a dirty dark brown/green. I was embarrassed every time I wore it. This new one has a pale pink band. After a few days of outdoor activity, this strap is already turning color.
HELP! What should I do? How can I clean it? These watches are not cheap and I feel cheated.

Buy a new strap...They are a hell of a lot cheaper than the watches themselves. If you threw away a watch becuase the strap was dirty you made a dire mistake. Or you could get a watch with a metal strap or just buy a metal strap and change them over.

How do you replace the battery in a ironman triathlon sleek digital watch

Thank you for contacting FIxYa.
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.

    Unfortunately there is no way to get rid of that discolouring.This is due to sunrays+swetting+chemical composite of strap material. Would be too long to explain how it works, so, here is the link where you can order the new strap:

    Eliminate half moon from dial of a Timex Ironman Triathlon watch

    You need to hold down the Indiglo button for 4 seconds. The half moon means that night mode is activated, and it will tuirn itself off in 8 hours (which I'm sure you know by know, seeing how it's been 5 years).
