How do i set up my soccer watch

I don't think it's a good idea to wear any watch during sports because you can easily break them, damage your arm or do something like that, so it's not safe. When you watch games on the biggest soccer stadiums USA, do you see professional players wear any watches? As I know, the use of any smartwatches by players is banned.

Why did hands come off during watch battery replacement?

If the hands of your watch have come off after replacing the battery, it could be due to a few different issues. Here are some possible causes and solutions:
  1. Improper installation: If the hands were not properly aligned when the battery was replaced, it could cause them to come off when the watch is turned face-up. Make sure that the hands are properly aligned and securely fastened to the watch movement before reassembling the watch.
  2. Loose or damaged hands: If the hands were loose or damaged before the battery replacement, they may have come off when the watch was turned face-up. Check the hands for any damage or wear and if necessary, replace them with new hands.
  3. Damaged watch movement: If the watch movement was damaged during the battery replacement process, it could cause the hands to come off when the watch is turned face-up. Have the watch movement inspected by a professional watch repair technician.
  4. Incorrect battery size: If the incorrect battery size was used to replace the old battery, it could cause the hands to come off when the watch is turned face-up. Make sure you are using the correct battery size and type for your watch.
  5. Incorrectly set the hands: During the battery replacement, if the hands were moved or set incorrectly, it could cause them to come off when the watch is turned face-up. Double check that the hands are set to the correct time and position.

Need help with removal of 97P144 links

Removing links from a 97P144 watch band can be a bit tricky, but with the right tools, it can be done. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to remove links from your 97P144 watch band:
  1. Gather the tools: You will need a small screwdriver, a pair of pliers, and a link removal tool (specifically designed for removing links from watch bands).
  2. Locate the link pins: Look at the back of the band and locate the link pins that hold the links together. These will be small, thin pins that run through the links and hold them in place.
  3. Use the screwdriver: Use the small screwdriver to push down on the head of the link pin, and then use the pliers to gently pull the pin out of the link. Be sure to keep a firm grip on the pin as you pull it out, as it can be tricky to remove.
  4. Repeat the process: Repeat this process for each of the link pins that you want to remove.
  5. Use the link removal tool: Use the link removal tool to push the link out of the band.
  6. Reassemble the band: Once you have removed the desired number of links, reassemble the band by pushing the link pins back into place and securing them with the screwdriver.
Be sure to take your time and work carefully, as you don't want to damage the band or the watch itself during the process.

Casio module 4722 issues.

The issue you are describing with your Casio module 4722 watch in the HM (hand setting) mode sounds like a mechanical problem with the watch movement. It is possible that the gears or other internal components that control the movement of the hour and minute hands have become damaged or jammed. This problem could be caused by a variety of factors such as impact, moisture, or wear and tear. In order to fix this issue, it is best to take the watch to a qualified watch repair professional who can diagnose and repair the problem. They can determine if the problem is a minor one that can be fixed quickly or if a more extensive repair is needed. It's also a good idea to refer to the manufacturer's manual for troubleshooting steps and warranty information, as some issues may be covered under the warranty.
