Question about Jakks Pacific Spy Kit

1 Answer

I bought our son a Spynet Video watch for Christmas and we charged it but when we removed it from the charger, it turned off and wouldn't turn on. I then thought maybe we needed to download some kind of software first but when I went to the spynethq.com website, I couldn't find a link to download the spynet client application

A bit late to the party, but two things come to mind. If the watch is new old stock with a few years on it, more than likely the battery is bad, it won't charge any more. Also, the power supply may be bad, I use 5 volt one amp charger, also, the manual says to charge it with the screen on, I tried that, and the battery will never be fully charged because the screen being on drains the battery faster than the charger can charge it.If the watch is working but the battery is low, connect the charge cable to the watch, then to the charger, otherwise the charger will pull the battery down too. So, let the screen go blank, then charge it, I have tried this method multiple times, and every time, assuming the battery is good, it fully charges in few hours. If you are adventurous, you can upgrade the battery to 450mah, it's a little bigger than the one it comes with, but lasts a lot longer, only a small amount of modification to the plastic strips made into the watch back need to be done, simply remove the strip closest to the electronics and it will fit just fine.

The external battery pack supplied in the box with the watch works in "Try Me Mode". There is a reset button on the back of the watch. Reset the unit and the USB port will work. I have two units that had exactly the same problem. Both are charging now!

What other chargers for Spynet watch that work?


All you need is a mini-USB to USB cable. Then use your laptop or any open USB port to charge.

Can"t get the watch to


Is the plastic battery tag broken off? It is located below the try me battery terminal. If it is, try removing it with a tweezer or a thin blade. You can also remove the 4 phillips screws from the back of the watch and carefully remove the back cover. Try not to pull on any of the wires. You can see the broken plastic piece. Once you remove it and put the watch back together, it should start working right away.

My son got a Spynet Video Watch for Christmas. He has been charging it for over 5 hours and it still doesn't show a full charge. It only shows half a charge and when he takes it off and tries to use it...


Hello, Pdschanz -

Since the watch was a Christmas gift, it is probably still under warranty.

I hope you found and downloaded the instructions for the watch, saved them in a Documents file with a file name you can find again easily, printed the instructions, and read them thoroughly all the way.

If you have not yet contacted Customer Service for the watch, I suggest you do that after reading through the instructions and the FAQs near the end of the instructions.

This is the telephone number for Customer Service for Jakks Pacific Inc., manufacturer of the watch:
877-875-2557
Malibu, California
Call weekdays during normal office hours, Pacific Time zone.

This is the email address for Jakks Pacific Customer Service:
