How To Set Time In Your Digital Watch: Easy-To-Follow Guide
Your digital watch helps you keep track of time. It also has several other features that make it more useful. Of course, you need to know how to operate it to make the best out of it.
In this article, we will review how to set time in digital watch. This knowledge will come in handy when you need to do so but have forgotten how.
A digital watch is an electronic watch that displays time in the form of numbers, not with dials and hands. Models of digital watches come in different shapes and layout.
You may notice that some only have one button; some have four or more. You use these buttons to switch to modes and use other functions.
Remember, keep the user manual of your watch after purchase. It comes with all the instructions in operating your trusty watch.
How to set a digital watch depends on its specific layout. However, these instructions apply to most digital watches. Most online resources will provide 4-button digital watch instructions, just like this guide.
Switch To Time Mode
First, inspect the buttons of your watch. Some buttons are located on the sides of the case and are protruding. Some have recessed buttons. There are also digital watches with setting buttons on the back or behind a cover.
Locate the ‘Mode’ button of your digital watch. The Mode button is usually located in the bottom left of a four-button digital watch.
If the Mode button is protruding, you can easily press it to access all settings of your watch. If it is recessed, use a pen to poke it. Never use a pencil as its lead might break, leaving debris in the hole.
Navigate the settings by pressing the same button repeatedly. Press the button repeatedly to access the ‘Time Mode’.
If your watch buttons do not have labels, press each button to see which one will display the settings.
Set The Time And Date
Once you have accessed the Time Mode, press Start/Stop and Split/Reset button to adjust the numbers corresponding to the time on your display.
Your first option is to change the minute setting. The numbers will blink, indicating that it is being selected. Press slowly so you don’t miss a number.
To adjust the hour setting, press the Mode button again. It will also blink once selected. Use the advance button to change the numbers.
You may also change the date and day of the week using the Mode button. Repeat the process to access the Date setting. Similarly, adjust settings using the advance button.
When you’re all done with the adjustments, press the Set button to save the new settings. Exit the display by pressing the Mode button. Select Normal Mode.
See, it’s easy how to set time in digital watch. Give your watch proper care and maintenance to enjoy its service.
