There is different proccedure for different watch to take out the back. Following are some of the proccedure to open the backcover of the watches:-
1. Some plastic watch have four screw in the back, you just have to unscrew the screws and take out the back.

2. Some of the watch have press back technology, which enables the watch to be water resistant and thus, the backcover of these watches are pressed very tight. You just need a back opener, and at the back if this back opener has to placed between the case and backcover and has to be tilted and backcover can be opened.
(Backopener is a tool which is like thick & hard blade with sharp edges like knife but not very sharp; these edges can get easily between the gap of backcover and case. - this tool can be obtained from any watch tools store easily)

What is Indiglo battery


If you don't know what size battery you need, you can find this information on the back plate of your watch. All Indiglo watches have it stamped there, you may need a magnifying glass to read it though!

I have a ladies timex indiglo watch that I was able to get the back off and replace the battery but now I can NOT get the back on again. It doesnt seem to have any grooves on it. It seems as if it would...


I have an old Timberland Indiglo watch in which I had the same problem. I folded up a paper towel for padding and I used two sets of pliers, one to hold one side of the watch while I used the other set of pliers to snap the back cover closed. It took two seconds to do.

Hello, I just bought a Timex Acqua with Indiglo


Depending on when you bought your Timex, you shouldn"t need a battery just yet, your Timex came with a good battery. Look under the stem (winder) for a small piece of plastic that is not allowing the stem to go all the way down, remove that piece of plastic and push the stem down and your Timex will start. Or if your Timex has buttons, look for a tab of plastic on the back cover, this tab of plastic is keeping the battery from (ground) a complete circuit remove this tab of plastic to start your Timex. Changeing the battery while fairly easy, you"d need jewelers screwdrivers and of course the new battery, Best Bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change.

Display disappears when Indiglo is pressed


That means your watch has two batteries - one for the movement and another one for INDIGLO. It may have just one battery, but in this case INDIGLO is taking up too much power. Replace the battery and you will be sorted. Rate me, plz.

After about two years, my indiglo night light function stopped working. The watch is still working, keeping time. Will changing the battery fix the indiglo problem?


Definitely, battery change will solve the Indiglo light problem. Many of wristwatches has separate battery for Indiglo function, but my advise is to change them both at once - will be cheaper for you.

Rate me, please.

Indiglo does not work after changing battery


On a Timex a lot of times the back has to be on for everything to work. But I am going to assume the back is on. The indiglo could just be out. Timex repairs their watches for little or no cost. You would have to mail it to them for repair as they do not release parts to anyone. I believe their number is 1-800 for time

Some Timex watches are fitted with two batteries (one for indiglo, another for watch movement). Check out if you have this sort of model.

Timex indiglo. Indiglo feature died.


The indiglo technology is time limited (it dims over the years with use) and cannot be repaired - have you had the watch a long time? if so, I'm afraid it's time to get a new one. Sorry!

Timex Expedition, beeps very quietly and indiglo doesn't work.


To clarify... Replace the cover with the arrow on the back pointing directly at the stem. The Indiglo backlight, alarms and chimes should all work when the back cover is in this position.
