You will find them on the module itself.
So after replacing the battery look on the PCB (printed circuit board) for the letters"AC" and "VSS". Adjacent to these markings there should be little contact points (probably gold or silver looking in colour)
Use a paper clip or similar and bridge (short) these two points simultaneously. Please rate my solution.

    I had the low battery indicator come on every morning for well over a year before the battery actually went dead!

In my Ironman Datalink 851 they are here:

I did not do this a week ago when replacing the battery and that brand-new battery died in less than 2 days. I hope performing the reset tonight on yet another new battery will be the right way for the watch to function without sucking down this battery too.

    Interesting observation. I had sent in a watch to the Timex repair service for a new battery and it came back with a Low Batt indicator on it. I wonder if not resetting it was the cause. Regardless, thanks for this picture. Even under magnifiers, I couldn't find anything labeled with the letters"AC" and "VSS".

    Thanks for this excellent picture. I have replaced the battery in my datalink USB many times without any issue. This time, however, the watch would not beep (no button beep, no alarm, etc.) after I replaced the battery. Resetting the watch by shorting these two pads solved that problem. BTW, AC pad is labeled on my watch, but VSS pad did not have a label I could see, unless it is under the battery.

Timex Rush Indiglo Watch: shorting the AC pad to the battery

If you take a jeweler's lupe near where the arrow is you will see the word "reset" in the plastic.
There is a deep hole in the plastic with contacts below. That is the reset, and that is why you must use very sharp pointed tweezers to make contact with the back of the battery.

I think if you do not have sharp tweezers, you can probably put a sewing pin down the hole, and then connect with a small screwdriver to the back of the battery..
