The problem is that water or humidity is getting into your watch. You either need a new back gasket 9 probibly nicked when changing a battery, or your crown ( the little piece used to change the time) gasket is bad, or you have a crack in your crystal. Turn your crown as if to wind it , if it turns REALLY easy your crown gasket is bad, if not you need to open your watchback and insert a new gasket around the back cover. Make sure that it fits tight ( you probibly have to stretch it a little) and then reclose the watch. The only place I know you can get a seal is at a watch repair shop.

Watch stopped after changing time


It may just be a coincidence that the battery is dead at the same time you changed the hours

It says rom fail on my lodown 2 and i was wondering if anyone knew how to reset the watch?


Here some tips to deal with a Nixon Lodown:
1) Sleeping mood (display is off, all buttons lead to the same reaction: display shows time for some secs and then turns off again. This mode is for battery energy saving, switch it on and off by holding (c.a. 2 secs) the light button.
2) ROM FAIL: it happens that the lodown shows ROM FAIL and constantly restarts. It happened on my watch while I tried to change time zones. Here is what to do about it: Bring it to a professional watch repair store and get the battery replaced. The watch restarts automatically and works perfectly fine again. DON'T send it to Nixon, they will charge you for shipping, battery replacement, the new battery etc. Although it should be covered by the guarantee. Just get a new battery, it cost me 16 USD and the watch is good again, waterproof and works perfectly. Nixon authorized repair centers will charge you extra for pressure testing. I had this on my second Lodown, after I had it two weeks only...
3) Watch freezes: All digits are on at the same time, none of the buttons brings a reaction. I had this problem on my first lodown. Just get a new battery, that solves the problem. But again DON'T use authorized Nixon repair centers, it costed me almost 45 USD, just to get a new battery. Although the watch was only 1 year old and guarantee should have covered this case.
In general the Nixon Lodown is a good watch, looks good, has all features you need, as long as it works. The problem with the watch is, the above problems occur pretty often. I have my second Lodown now and I am very disappointed with the Nixon customer service. Although clearly guarantee cases, they will charge you for every single problem you have with the watch. My advice, bring the watch to a regular watchmaker.
After all, I don't understand why the Nixon Lodown manual does not mention all the above issues. The manual is completely useless, very poor from Nixon. You have to dig online to solve any issues on the watch. In summary: The Nixon Lodown watch is good, Nixon customer service and guarantee is a joke. ROM FAIL and freeze is solved with replacing the battery.

How to i turn off the hourly beep on my nixon lowdown watch


This is not done in the alarm section. In the time view, press and hold the wave#/reset button (lower right) until it beeps (3 seconds). That's it. The watch should be silent now when cycling through and on the hour.

I change the battery of my nixon superhero TI/PU and now i cant see the digital numbers what can i do??


you need to restart digital part of the watch. Open it ( the screws part) and there you will find 2 reset contacts. You need toen close the contacts with the big battery in it. Then it should start working. This acion have helped me few hours ago.

Nixon lowdown - hourly chime


It is so simple. I struggled with this forever then called customer service. To turn off the hourly chime just press the bottom right (wave/reset) button while in the normal time/tide screen. You do not need to go through all of the modes. Just one button press from the home screen. When you see the target icon disappear you have done it.

Dead battery on nixon insider watch!


The insider has not one, but FOUR batteries. I took it to my local jeweler for replacement and the watch never worked the same again. I suggest you return to Nixon for battery service.

To Nixon's credit, their warranty dept. replaced my watch after trying to fix it.
