Question about Timex Watches

1 Answer

I just replaced the battery on my Timex WR100 watch, but can't seem to reset it correctly. There is a sticker on the original battery "AFTER BATTERY INSERTION SHORT AC PAD AND BATTERY (+) TO RESET" I can see a small letter "A" partially underneath the area that the sticker arrow points to, but after several tries with a paper clip to short to the + side of the battery, the display is still blank. Am I doing something wrong, or is this watch just dead, dead? Thanks Byron S.

It sounds like you're not far off. Peel the sticker back a little, and see if there is a small contact point (usually yellow metal) - this should be marked 'AC'. Short this to the + for 3 seconds, then repeat for good measure. If that doesn't sort it, try taking the battery out, wait about 30 seconds then put it back in and reset if necessary. If there's still no display, obtain a known working battery and try again.
If you still have no display, it's time to give up and admit it's dead.... unless you've been using a plastic coated paper clip.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Replaced battery, now no beep.

I have a Timex Digital Heart Rate Monitor 585 (product code T5C351F5)m, which has the same Short AC Pad and battery +ve message. There is an arrowhead pointing to the pad. It's a raised metal platform - a bit different to some of the Ironman's mentioned above. Here is a pic...6e1fe0e.jpg

To all who need to change their Timex Ironman Triathlon watches:

It is a little confusing, but this is a watch you can change the battery by yourself!

First you will need:

-A big clear area (i.e. a table or counter) with lots of light to see what exactly you are doing.
-Small screw driver (like the tiny ones for a glasses care kit)
-Paper clip


Directions:

1. Remove all screws from the the back of the watch (there should be 4). Make sure that you take note of which screws are coming from which spot on your watch and keep them separated as such.

2. Next, you should see a white circular sticker with directions on how to change your battery. They aren't clear as "how to" but they are the basics.

2a. Take off the white sticker once you have memorized the places it is pointing to; set it up as such in front of you so you can refer back to it from time to time.
2b. You should see two silver pieces. One should be a circle (which is the battery), which is held in by another silver piece. This unlatches. In order to do so, you need to simply pop it open on one of the sides (as it tells you in the directions). You may use the same screwdriver or even a paper clip works wonders!

3. Replace your battery (should be CR2016) with the + on top, facing towards you. make sure it is flat, not just shoved back where the old battery was. This make take some extra time and patience to make sure it is done right.

4. Snap the silver part back into place (should look like it is holding the battery in place i.e. a gate).

5. THEN: this is the most important and confusing part in my opinion. On the white sticker the directions read: "after battery insertion, short pads to reset". this should look something like an oval with a line cutting it in half (vertically). It is not on the battery but next to it. You will need the paper clip here to hold down the right most side (at somewhat of an angle). this should do it! you'll know if your digital faces flashes numbers at you and may even light up. Make sure you hold down long enough.

6. Once you have the numbers flashing, you are good to go. Put the back of your watch back on, taking note of which screw goes where. Then, set your watch accordingly and you have just changed your watch! Ta-da!

Follow these steps and you should be good. Good luck to all!

I have a Timex Indiglo watch that I had replaced the battery. I used the correct battery CR2016 and the watch doesn't work. I have replaced batteries in watches many times and always have had the watch...


This watch will have what is called and "AC" or All clear to reset it. There should be a white sticker with very small print on the back lid that will walk you through doing this procedure. It typically involves pressing down a tiny lever onto a small metal pad that will reset the watch.
