Question about Timex 1440 Nylon watch
I have searched high and low for instructions on how to change the time on my Timex 1440. It only has three buttons. One is mode, one is start/stop and the other is lap/rst. can you help as all the other watches seem to have four buttons.
In "Time Mode" when time is displayed, hold the "mode" button until the alarm flashes. Press the "mode" button again and the display should change to the seconds flashing. Press the st/stop button to change location between seconds, minutes, hours, date, month, and day. Use the lap/reset button to make any changes.

Ok - i messed with this forever. i have some solutions, but not all.
* To get it off military time, do this:
while in time mode, hold down the "adjust" button (bottom right) and then press the "mode" button (top left). you'll notice that the "P" below the alarm time disappears and appears, just as the hours switch from military to non-military mode. (best to do this in the afternoon)
* You may find that the date gets weird looking after you mess with the buttons long enough. chances are it switched to European date mode, which places the day before the month (freaks). To switch back, hold down "start/stop" (top right) and then press "adjust" (bottom right).
Now if anyone can tell me how to set the date, I'll be psyched.

Uh, yeah, its like, so easy! i have a purple sports timex 1440, and it has: mode, start/stop, set, and indiglo. it just broke at the kroc center. :(
i hope you find it easy. you just have to hold mode down until it blinks. press it again to go to the time. (the first time is the alarm) push start/stop to toggle, push start/stop again and again to go to the date, day, and then return to time. but if you do the alarm, you have to hold mode down again. i hope you can figure it out now.
i wish i could get my watch to work again. too bad it rusted. :(
remember, today is a time machine, what you do today will effect your future!
bye for now!
on wizard101, i am julia watersword. bye!

To set the time, all you need to do is press "set" as well as "start/stop" simultaneously. You need to ensure that you have got both buttons on at the same time and don't release it immediately. Once you press both of these buttons down, you need to keep it this way for at least a few seconds. Then, you will notice that the numbers on your watch face will start to flicker. The numbers that blink should be the numbers representing the seconds.
Once you have the numbers flickering, you can start setting or changing your time. You now have to use the "mode" button to change either the date or time on your Timex WR50M. Adjust the timing as to the number that you want to. Once you have done so, just press the "set" button and your timing and date has been adjusted. The process is really simple, isn't it?

2) Press mode button one more time to get to "time adjustment", annd then use the "start/stop" and "set" keys to adjust the time as usual.

This works firstname.lastname@example.org
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is the basis for the worldwide system of civil time. It is
determined using highly precise atomic clocks at time laboratories around the world that are
accurate to a billionth of a second per day. UTC time signals are broadcast via low frequency
signals. Your radio controlled Timex® watch synchronizes its time to the broadcast time signal.
PLEASE NOTE: This product only works in North America.
A. In TIME mode, press and hold SPLIT/RESET. Watch will attempt to synchronize time with
nearest time broadcast and tower symbol will flash in display. This may take up to two
B. Watch automatically attempts synchronization at 1:00 am daily and 4:00 am Sunday
C. Tower icon ( ) appears in display if synchronization has been successful within 24 hours.
WARNING: Depending on your location, the watch may be unable to pick up the radio signal
from Colorado. Synchronization may also not be successful if your watch is near a source of
interference (e.g., computer monitor) or you are in a building with a metal roof. Cloudy or rainy
weather conditions may interfere with radio signal transmission. If synchronization is unsuccessful,
try the following:
• Rotate watch 90 degrees.
• Move to a wall or window facing toward Fort Collins, CO.
• Move at least 2 meters away from any computer monitors.
• Move outside. If it works outdoors but not indoors, you may have a local interference
problem in your building.
If your watch is off by one or more hours: make sure you have properly selected your time
zone (see below). If you are in an area that does not observe Daylight Savings Time (DST),
be sure DST is disabled on your watch.
If your watch is off by a few minutes or seconds: make sure that your watch is currently
receiving the signal (tower icon appears in display).
If your watch did not adjust time for DST, make sure that your watch is currently receiving
the signal (tower icon appears in display).
