How do I change the time on my Armitron WR165ft watch?

To change the time on your Armitron wr165ft watch, you will need to remove the back of the watch. This can be done by using a small screwdriver and prying it off from one side. Once that is completed, you will find a set of gears inside that are responsible for powering the hands on your watch. You will also see two pins which control where the hands move. These pins have arrows next to them which indicate how far they need to be pushed in order for them to make a full rotation of 360 degrees or 12 hours. You should start by pushing these forward until they reach their furthest point and then pull them outwards so they are at their original position before continuing with what was described.

  2. If it's not, you'll need to change the time zone or adjust the date and time manually

  4. Once you have taken off the back of your watch, look for two buttons on either side of a battery compartment
  5. Use one finger to press down on both buttons at once until they are released
  6. You will now be able to make adjustments with an analog clock face that is located at 12 o'clock position on your Armitron wr165ft watch
