Try these instructions for setting the watch:

As soon as the watch catches the WWV Atomic signal, it will set itself to that. If, for some strange reason, you're in a gray area time zone, it may reset to a different time. I think the Atomic time overrides manual settings with these watches, though I've never owned one.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

My Abacus Fossil AU4005 110504 wont charge any more,wen i put it on the charger nothing happen,it does not light up any more,do i need a new battery and where do i get it?


I had the same problem but easy fix.
first make sure you put the watch on charger for a few hours first-- the problem is not the battery not taking charge it is the watch that is not turning on probably.
After a few hours on the charger, remove the four screws on the back cover-- WARNING- remove cover carefully. there are two thin copper wires attached to the cover to the charing coil. set the cover aside. remove battery back (unplug tiny connector). WAIT a10 minutes-- this is to discharge any remaining charge that may be held by capacitor in the watch. plug the battery back in. Voila! working now. This is my way of resetting the watch to factory setting. Isn't it almost always work when you remove power to electronic device to reset it?

I lost the Wrist Net power supply but I do have the charger base. What voltage is the power supply?


Wow, I haven't used my SPOT watch in years--but I found it!

The charging base for my Abacus AU4000 uses an adapter rated at 12 volts, .11 amps, center positive. I believe that all the charging cradles for the Abacus Wrist Net series watches were the same--the different model numbers referred to different case and band options.

Good luck, and don't hesitate to follow up if you have any additional questions.

I purchased a abacus wrist net on line with msn direct , and my battery isn't charging with my charger.


Your issue may not be that the watch is not recharging, it may just need to be reset. This will work on most, but not all of the abacus watches. You need to press all but the top left button at the same time. Do this 20x if successful, your watch will magically power up. I have this issue from time to time, usually right after a static shock. Hope this helps!
