There's little clips on the sides of the plate. You poke a tiny precision screwdriver down there and flick them open, carefully.

According to their site, they don't want you replacing the battery. The battery is a silver oxide type, and the number is sr927W. You can find one with a google search.

I'm from India and I have an Relic (Bought from US) the same model but in silver color. Its been almost two years and it is stopped. Whether battery needs to be changed or anyother problem? If I want to...

Most probably its battery problem. You can go to any reputed (Titan, Timex) watch showroom and get its battery replaced. They will change the battery immediately.

Don't get the battery replaced from the small watch repair shops. They don't have original batteries, so your battery will not last long.

Hope it helps. Don't forget to rate me. Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a timex ironman watch that I bought about 5 years ago and I need to change the battery and I need to know how to get the back off

If there is a small indentation on the back plate, insert a very small screwdriver to pry the plate off. Then you'll find your battery.

If your backplate has 3 indentations, then you'll need a special tool, which sets into all 3 indentations and unscrews the back.

My suggestions to you is to bring it to any jewelers, even department staore jewelers and they have everything there, they'll even change the battery at no extra costs.

How do I set the time on an Adidas calculator adh4020 watch?

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.0px Arial} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.0px Arial; min-height: 15.0px} p.p3 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica; min-height: 14.0px} p.p4 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica} p.p5 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.0px Helvetica} p.p6 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.0px Helvetica; min-height: 16.0px} span.s1 {letter-spacing: 0.0px} span.s2 {font: 12.0px Helvetica; letter-spacing: 0.0px} span.s3 {font: 13.0px Arial; letter-spacing: 0.0px}

I have the Adidas ADH4018 and I assume the controls are the same, unfortunately, Adidas has absolutely no manual online for this watch. I've figured out how to do most of the functions of this watch.

NOTE: For greater setting accuracy, I recommend using a stylus-like object or the retracted tip of a retractable pen (as to not write on your watch) to click the number keys when setting the time and date for the first time.

Set the Time:

To set the time go into time mode by pressing the lower silver button on the right side of the watch face. Then enter set mode (press and hold the upper silver button on the left side of the watch face until your display blinks). Press the number 7 to change the hour, press the number 8 to change the minutes, press the number 9 to start the seconds over at 00. Press the multiplication key (x) to change from 12 hour to 24 hour time modes. When finished press the time mode key.

Set the Date:

To set the date go to time mode by pressing the lower silver button on the left side of the watch face. Then enter set mode (press and hold the upper silver button on the left side of the watch face until your display blinks). Press the number 4 to change the month number. Press the number 5 to change the day of the month. Press the number 6 to change the day of the week (indicated by a small dot above the days of the week abbreviations at the bottom of the digital display. When finished, press the time mode key.

Set the Alarm:

To set the alarm time, enter alarm mode by pressing the upper silver button on the right side of the watch face. Then enter set mode (press and hold the upper silver button on the left side of the watch face until your display blinks). Press the number 7 to change the hour, press the number 8 to change the minutes. When finished press the time mode key.

Turn the Alarm On or Off:

To turn the alarm on or off, first enter alarm mode by pressing the upper silver button on the right side of the watch face. Then press the divide key (÷) to change from on to off or off to on. When the alarm is ON an indicator icon will appear in the upper right of the display in time, date, or alarm mode. When alarm is OFF there will be no indicator icon displayed.

To Use the Calculator Function:

Enter Calculator mode by pressing the Clear All (AC) key on the keypad when in time mode. Use the number keys and function keys to complete calculations. To return to time mode simply press the time mode key.

As of yet I have not discovered how to turn off the annoying beep when you press any button.

I have an Alessie 6004 (silver with red strap) and need to change the battery. I am not sure how to open the watch or what size battery it takes. Can anyone help please?

You will need to pop off the back of the watch. A razor blade knife works best as you can slide the thin blade under the cover and work it off. Once off, you will see the battery and be able to match it up at any radio shack store. Joe.

Timex Sleek stopped beeping when I replaced the battery

This is a common problem when non watch educated people are changing battries themselves.
The answer is simple: While changing battery and handling the watch you did lost the coil spring. It is so small, you will never notice that the something was dropped.
Coilspring is the connector to the sound membrane of the watch, transfering microprocessor signals to audible membrane.
If it's lost, there is no connection between watch movement and audio membrane.
I suggest that you did change batteries yourself previously and had the same outcome (no sound). Next time you gonna change the battery - make sure you do not turn the watch upside down and if you do - check the movement with eyeglass and make sure all the loose fitted bits are in place.
To get your both watches fixed visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for coilspring to be fitted.

Rate me, please.
