I just had this problem, and my 8 year old and I had to fiddle a bit to figure it out.

Just to confirm, you have removed the back cover and taken the watch guts out of the face and strap assembly and are looking at the battery which has a cover over it and maybe a sticker on the cover that says "unlatch to remove battery", with two >'s, one pointing to to each side?

On each side there are two small metal tabs, which surround a small moulded-in plastic piece with an opening in the middle.

The release is in that opening in the plastic piece. You need to fish around in that opening a little to catch the release and push it outward toward the edge of the watch (away from the battery). You need something very small to do this with, like a straight pin. If successful, the cover pops up on one side and then you do the same on the other side.

Good luck.

How do I replace the battery in my timex Expedition indiglo watch? There's a metal bracket that has clips on either side that appears to be holding it down. How do I unclip it? handyman


mcdevito75 here, Without seeing the watch as they are all different, but similar in a way. This hold down bar across the battery may slide out of the way but most likely there is a small screw on 1 side of that bar that has to be either loosened or completely removed before you move that bar out of the way.

CHanging battery on timex expedition, cover says


If you don't have the proper tools I recommend that you not do this yourself. You could scratch the case or damage the movement if you don't know what you're doing. If it's a water resistant watch the gasket also needs to be replaced once it is opened. DO NOT reuse a gasket! For about $8 any watch or jewelry2_bing.gif store can change the battery and renew the gasket for you.

I have a Timex Expedition and I use the automatic restart timer for work. When I got the battery changed I no longer had the feature. I have to reset each time.


If you haven't got any instructions you can get a copy from their web site.

If you have instructions and they are of not help, I suggest that you contact Timex and tell them of your problem.

You can get instructions from the Timex web site "timex.com".

At the bottom of the screen click on "manuals/downloads", then on "product
manual download"

Enter your watch type in the search box and click on "search"

There are so many applications use of the manual will be mandatory.

Use the numbers on the back of your watch and you will have a PDF version of your instruction manual.

Hope this tip helps

Timex Men's Digital Expedition Chrono Alarm Timer Watch battery


hi
please follow the steps to change the battery
  1. Step 1 Make sure the little arrow on the back is aimed to the right. Then, insert a small flat head screwdriver into the notch on the edge, and lever the back open. Place the back to one side.
  2. Step 2 Unscrew the clip holding the battery (if your model has a clip), and remove the battery.
  3. Step 3 Use plastic tweezers to put in a new battery. Do not directly touch the new battery. Screw the clip (if it has one) back on.
  4. Step 4 Replace the gasket that seals the watch. Then lightly coat the gasket with a silicone-based grease.
  5. Step 5 Align the back with the little arrow aimed to the right again, then carefully press the watch between two pieces of wood that are being held by a small vise, until the back seats itself.
thank you....

Timex expedition compass battery replacement?


hi
i am not an expert in this particular case but i followed theses below steps . here are they.....

Unscrew the case back with a case back tool (aka Jaxa wrench) which engages
the notches in the case back. I'm assuming the watch has a screw back - if
it has notches it does. Pop out the old battery.

In some watches you have to
unscrew a clip but in most the battery pops right out. Examine movement for
evidence of battery leakage or other damage. Carefully clear away any crud
at the edge of the case - the tiniest metal shaving will short out the coil.
Install new battery of same type. Handle new battery with non-metal tweezers
or rubber gloves, never bare fingers. Inspect case back gasket or preferably
just replace it with new o-ring of same size. Gasket should be lubricated
with silicone grease. Reinstall case back using wrench. If you are
concerned with water resistance the watch needs to be tested in a pressure
test machine. I'm sure the pros have more tips but this should suffice for a
Timex where it would not be a big loss to damage or break the watch.

i hope you can successfully replace the battery
thank you
