Abacus AU8001

To synchronize the hands of your ( Fossil ) Abacus au8001 atomic watch do the following:Before Starting the procedure, remove the spring pin from the watchband buckle holes used to slightly adjust the size of the band ( the side with the set of two holes ) so that the band will lie flat on either side of the watch exposing the back of the watch. Use a small pin to push down on either side of the spring pin.1 ) Remove the back of the watch. You need to unscrew the 6 small stainless steel screws using a small jewelers Phillips screwdriver. Then using a needle pointed pair of tweezers, remove the screws and place them in a small container so they don't get lost. They are so small that if you drop them you may never find them, then remove the back of the watch using the tweezers as well.2) On the bottom of the stainless steel plate covering the Watch movement there is a small hole marked reset just to the left of the hole. At the bottom of the hole is a small stainless steel screw. Take a very small screwdriver or a straightened steel paper clip and insert it into the hole so it touches both the head of the small screw and the side of the hole ( so there is an electrical connection between the screw and the stainless steel plate ). If you are successful the LED Display on the front of the watch will start flashing 00:00. 3) then while looking at the face of the watch, press and hold the upper right button ( the A button on the instructions) until the watch hands start to spin. Let them spin until they almost read 12:00. Then do a short press of the A button again and the hands will stop. Then do short presses of the A button which will move the hands a very short distance each time you press it until the hands show exactly 12:00. If you accidentally go past exactly 12:00 then start over by pressing and holding the A button until the hands start to spin. The hands must show exactly 12:00 before taking the next step or they will not be synchronized with the digital time.4) when the hands show exactly 12:00 press the bottom right button ( the C button on the instructions).5) the watch will enter the setting mode showing the default time zone of EU. Press the A button to switch to your Time Zone. Each press of the button will change to the next time zone. When it appears press the C button to confirm6) the Daylight Savings mode of Auto will appear next. You can either switch it off entirely or turn it on by using the A button. Then press the C button again.6) you are now in the time setting mode. The number on the left which is flashing is the hours. Using the A code button change it to your current hours time. Then press the C button and the minutes numbers ( on the right will flash ) using an internet time source change the the minutes using the A button. Press the C button to enter The number will change to the seconds. Using your internet source press the C button when the internet seconds show 00..7) The display will now show the year stating in 2005. Press the A button repeatedly until the current year is shown. Then press the C button to enter.8) you will then be in the month mode with the number on the left flashing. Using the A button change the number to the current month and press the C button.9) You will now be in the date mode. Using the A button, change the number to the current date and press the C button.10) The watch will now adjust the hands to correspond to the digital time you just entered.11) Replace the back of the watch. Place the screws in the holes using the needle nose tweezers . Do this on a tray so if you drop a screw it won’t get lost. Screw them in so they are snug but don’t tighten too much or you risk cracking the plastic back.12) You can re enter the time setting mode by pressing and holding the C button for over 3 seconds.13) You can put the watch into a manual atomic time receiving mode by pressing and holding the A button for over 3 seconds Connect the watchband side you removed from the buckle by replacing the spring pin.

What is the battery size for fossil blue am-4090

From the Fossil websitehttps://www.fossil.com/en-us/******/how-to-change-a-watch-batteryHowever.....Tip & How-To about WatchesChanging Watch BatteriesLots of posters ask "what is the battery in my (name of watch)" with a view to changing it yourself. This is a bad idea for many reasons. You don't have the tools or knowledge to remove a rotary screw on back, or the gasket sealant for a waterproof watch. Some fashion watches have 4 traditional screw and need professional grade jeweler screwdrivers. Also, there are about 20 batteries commonly used in watches, in various sizes and internal technology, Lithium Ion, Silver Oxide and Manganese Alkaline. If you buy them, you generally have to buy 10!Don't sweat the details. Just take the watch to your local jeweler. They have all the batteries at hand and the tools to remove the back. It is done whilst you wait for $8 to $15!

Cannot get the cover back on Fossil watch after changing battery

First open your bracelet. Then align groove in caseback with crown and press that side lightly into the case. Then using both hands(one from dial side, another from back) press as strong as you can.
If this do not work:
Get mens leather belt and place it on flat surface(table top). Lay the watch face down on that belt. Again adjust caseback as before and using your weight push caseback down with both hands.
NEVER use hammer or similar.
If none of these works- go and see your nearest watchmaker.

My Fossil Hybrid watch has just stopped. The battery is only three months old. Also it has failed to synch for a week or two now but the date updates

Did you change the battery 3 months ago? Wrong type perhaps? Was the watch bought new with the battery? Watch in storage and display for 9 months, you had 3 months, time for battery change. https://www.fixya.com/support/r27181038-changing_watch_batteries ..
