Setting Timex 1440 Sports Watch

Setting Timex 1440 Sports Watch


I wanted to do a quick tutorial here on
the Timex 1440 setting the time and the alarm once you go over it’ll be pretty
easy to do but I know they’re a chore to set but here we have the set button, mode
button, start/stop, and Indiglow in the first mode is the time you have the day
and date and your seconds you go to the next mode alarm and it’s set for
5:00 p.m. and it is turned on right now so when you cycle through the alarm or
you turn you set the alarm it automatically turns the alarm speaker on
so in order to change that you just go to start/stop and cycle through and
you’ll also see the second setting there is a little chime which is the hourly
chime so you have to be in alarm mode to set the hourly chime and to turn the
alarm off if you want to so there’s the chime and the alarm on at the same time
and push it again and it turns the alarm and the chime off in order to set the
alarm you just push the set button and it starts the digits flashing and you
set that to change to the next to the minutes you just push mode and it
changes to the next digits then to change the digits you go start/stop up
and down so it cycles all the way through the numbers so you have to go
hold it down to actually go through the numbers and then
when you push alarm the set button again that sets it and also turns the alarm on
in order to turn it off you have to be in this mode and then do start/stop one
time that turns on the chime start/stop again that turns on the alarm and the
chime and once again it turns it completely off then change your mode
back to the next mode and that’s a stopwatch and that’s self-explanatory
your start/stop will be there and you’ll stop it and also to reset it you push
set so then go the next mode that’s your second time zone you can set that just
like you did the first you know I’ll go through that one more time change the
mode to the first mode which is the time the main time where we want to be it’ll
show the day of the week the date and the time and seconds so in order to
change that you hold down the set button second start flashing you can reset the
seconds by pressing the start/stop button cycle through those by using the
mode button it will change it to the hour mode again changes to the minutes
mode again the date 2015 11:25 so as you as you cycle through those modes you
can change those as you go through there then once you’re finished if you’ll
press the set button that takes care of that
now another mode on this watch is 24-hour and military time
1224 hour you just press that button the set
button one time and it changes it between military and standard time I
hope this helps with the dis watch and makes it a little more pleasing to have
and these watches last a long time hope you enjoy

  1. Thank you so much!!! My old watch broke to where i couldn't wear it and i had to get a new one and so. But thank you so much!!!

  2. In the words of the character Madea, "Hal-lae-LU-jeh!!!". I no longer have to convert from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time in my mind. You have the gift of demonstration and instruction with clarity. THANK YOU!

  3. YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW HELFUL THIS VIDEO WAS TO ME THANKYOU!! I WAS COMPLETLY LOST AND THIS VIDEO REALLY HELPED.. THANKYOU AGAIN!! 3:48 IF YOU CAME HERE TO TRY AND CHANGE THE DATE ON YOUR WATCH LIKE I DID. I ALSO WAS SO HAPPY TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET THE HOURLY CHIME AGAIN I HAD IT ON MY OLD WATCH AND LOVED IT BUT COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET IT ON MY NEW ONE. 1:20 🙂

  4. Thank you- I couldn't figure out how to set it from military time to civilian time and it was as simple as pressing "set" once. You saved me SO much headache- thank you. And I think this is about the third time I've found your video and it's helped me. Many many thanks!

  5. I am so thankful for your tutorial. I thought I would have to tear my house apart trying to find the paper manual. Every spring and fall when the time changes, I would hand the watch to my husband to change. Thanks to you, I can do it myself (very empowering). Your tutorial was at a speed that I could follow. Thank you again

  6. Thanks to your video l was able to set my two marathon watches. Since they don't come with instructions l appreciate this so much!!! Many many thanks to you!

  7. Thank you so much for this video, I was going absolutely mad at the Timex instruction site for over an hour and then I tried Youtube and found your video and in under 5 minutes I set the watch. Thank you so much. God bless

  8. Thank you so much for this video. My 12 year old just said "You do not know how satisfying that is!" when I handed him his fixed watch. I fixed it while he was scrolling through watches looking to buy another one because this one was "broke." Trust me, son, I know the feeling of satisfaction! Thank you again! You made my day and saved me money. 🙂

  9. THANKS ALOT YOU HELP ME ALOT
    I WAS GETTING CRAZY 😖ABOUT IT
    THAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNKKKKKKKKKSSSSSSSSS😮😮

  10. Thanks you soooo much this was extremely helpful and I would have never been able to use this watch without you!

  11. Thank youuuuuu! This video was very helpful! May the Lord Jesus bless you for your time sharing this, it was like a nightmare pressing all buttons with out results!😬

  12. This is the most helpful thing ive encountered this week. Even school is about a few times more useless. (I don't have summer RIP)

  13. Thank you so much. My dumbass stopped using the watch cause of daylights savings time and I didn't know how to adjust the time.

  14. Excellent complete walk though on how to use Timex Sport watches in general. They all basically follow the same interface. You really broke this down clean, clear and concise. I actually think Timex should reference your page on their site. Thank you.

  15. every time I set the minutes it does not add one minute at a time. It switches to half hour intervals. Example: Let's say it's 12:30. My watch will say 12:25. I go to change the minutes to the right time only it goes to 12:55 I press the start stop again and it goes back to 12:25. How do I solve this issue?

  16. Thank you so much. I lost instructions so I forget what to do. I watch your video to change time to/back from daylight savings, set the alarm and change other settings regularly every few months. In between time I always forget, so please leave this video up.

  17. Thanks …i just replaced battery and couldnt figure out setting until i discovered your video.. just like about 2 yrs ago i discovered many 'old songs' from Waylon Jennings not just 'Dukes of Hazard era' but 1960s' to early 1970s stuff. Totally amazing list of songs.

  18. This doesn’t help because I think mine is broken 🙁 when I change the minute i can only change from 32 and 5 saddddd

  19. Im using Marathon T5k644 but i could not change the time and date… When i press the set button, its not working. Help please??

  20. This video was extremely helpful as this is the watch I use whilst in exams, so I needed the correct time. Thank you for the informative and easy to follow step by step guide for all ages 🙂

  21. U REALLY HAVE NO IDEA HOW THANKFUL I AM FOR THIS VIDEO. THANK U THANK U THANK U VERY MUCH. I'M SO SORRY BECAUSE I'M TOO LATE IN WATCHING THE VID CAUSE I JUST GOT MY WATCH.

  22. THANK YOU THANK YOU MY WATCH HAS BEEN BEEPING. I didn't know how to work it so you know what my dumb behind did? I hid the watch LOL.

  23. Watch this video every 6 months at daylights savings when I have to set my watch. I always forget how to do it and I immediately remember when I watch this video

  24. I love my watch but couldn't understand the instructions. Your patient explanation is brilliant. I use it every change of daylight savings and battery change, as well as when I hit a button and reset it accidentally.

  25. Thanks. I nearly returned to Target because it came without instructions – how dumb of Timex it that? Timex should be ashamed.

  26. How do you set the year if you want it to go down Edit, Nvrm you just go to the year 2099 and it goes back to 2000

  27. This was so helpful!!! Just got this watch today and couldn't figure out how to change the day, thank you

  28. Thank God for this one. I was so confused. They are getting ride of analog clocks in classrooms because the children can't read them…..I learned that in SCHOOL! That's why we go to it
