Replaced battery twice, battery dies within a week??

If a battery known to be good is installed, it is likely that the watch is defective. I have found this to be the case at number of times.

Where can i go to get the battery replaced to my rado watch within metro manila

Any jeweler will be able to install a new battery. You may be able to buy a
battery on the world-wide-web and save some money that way. But you first
must know what type of battery to purchase. For your first time, going to the
jewelry store is the best way.

I have a 3054. About 3 days ago it reset to 1-1-2005 and has never changed. it now reads 1-3-2005 at 5:57 PM

This same problem (watch resetting to 1/1/205) has happened to me 2x now, about 2 months or so apart.

I have had this watch for ~10+ years now, and works perfectly.

I have replaced the battery 2x.

Again, the watch works great.

I just realized that in the .pdf manual, there is no indication for a "low-battery" condition.

I am guessing that the "low-battery" is what is causing the watch to reset the date/time to 1/1/2005.

Any others having this same problem if this watch resetting to 1/1/2005 after the watch has run just great (auto time syncing, etc.)?

This watch Keeps great time!

Battery is gone (I think) and regular watch repair places don't fix it (need a special tool to open it)

does it have a slot on the back ? usually Nike watches are made to easily replace the battery usually with a nickle slot on the back or screws on the corners. The batteries they have are usually common 2806 or similar coin sized batteries. It will say on the back of the battery .

Most jewelry or watch repair shops can easily replace these batteries. if you bought the watch within a year , have receipt and something is broken. You can send it back to nike to be repair for free. It is done by parsec located here

*How do i switch the band? *How do i replace the battery? Myself?

mcdevito75 here, The tools needed to do your own work on your watch really wouldn"t be worth the time, money or effort, a band lasts a few years and the battery 1--2 years. Refer to repair services at the bottom of this page, click on repair service the watches.

Casio g shock it wont hold charge to wear it. its my husband watch.

As you are probably aware, the battery should hold its charge for a considerable time, so the seem to be two alternatives:-
1) the battery needs replacing
2) it has developed a fault.

If the watch is still within the warranty period, then take it back, if not then you could take it to a watch shop and aske them to check the battery. If it is OK then it looks as though it must go back to a repairer.

For this, go to the Casio wed site (, select "support" and find your nearest service location.

Casio watch problem


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Offhand, I would say yes to the battery replacement. Though watches are not within my immediate field. This would be based on your post "2-5 minutes behind". As to the "lost signal" after a reset, may I request that you post back the specific model number pls.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
