How To Change Time On An Armitron Watch? (Easy Methods)

Armitron is a well-known brand of digital sports watches that will help you track your workouts and hit your goals. These watches are famous for their numerous essential features.

But when you buy a new Arminton watch, the time does not set on its own. You have to fix it by yourself by putting the correct time and date. Also, When you travel in different time zones, you will have to adjust the time on your Arminton watch.

So, it is highly essential to know how to change the time of an Arminton watch. Listed below is a step-by-step guide for changing the time on both an analog and digital Arminton watch. Let’s get started.

How To Change Time On An Armitron Watch: Digital Display

In case if you have a digital display Arminton watch, then you have to follow these steps to change your watch time:

Step 1: Identify The Buttons

Before changing Arminton’s watch time, it’s essential to identify the buttons of the watch. Because without the identification of controls, changing the time will be difficult for you.

There are four buttons on your watch. Each side contains two buttons.

  • The top-left button (A) is for the “Reset” function.
  • The bottom left button (B) is for entering the “Mode” function.
  • The top right button (D) stands for “Start/Stop” (ST/STP).
  • The bottom right button (C) turns on the light.

After identifying the buttons of your watch, it will now be easy for you to change the time of your watch.

Step 2: Press And Hold The Reset Button

You have to hold the Reset Button (A) until your watch starts beeping in the next step. When you hear a beep of your watch, it means that you are starting with setting the time.

The watch will begin to blink on three of its four screens. At this point, you’re ready to set the time.

Step 3: Change The Values By Pressing Mode Button

To access the hour, minutes, date, and day setup, you must press the mode button (Left Button B). 

You can change the part of your watch that flashes on your screen by pressing the Mode Button. This step allows you to change the hour, minutes, day, as well as the date. 

Continue pressing the Mode button until you reach the value you need to change.

Pressing this button will not change the numbers. This only signifies that you are ready to proceed to the next step, setting the numbers.

Step 4: Use ST/STP (Button D) to Adjust the Hour

Change the hour by pressing the “ST/STP” button (D).

Pressing the button repeatedly will increase the hour until it reaches 12, after which it will reset to 1.

To set the hour, press the “Mode” button (B) again. You will then see the hour side stop blinking, and the minute side will be ready for setting.

Step 5: Use ST/STP (Button D) to Adjust the Minutes

Use the “ST/STP” button (D) on the top right to increment minutes. 

The number of minutes increases by one every time you press the button. Press the “Reset” button on the top left (A) of your watch once the time has been set correctly.

The Reset button will save all the changes and lock in all the data.

How To Change Time On An Armitron Watch: Analog Watch

In case if you have an analog watch, then you should follow these steps to change the time of your Arminton watch:

Step 1: Pull Out The Crown And Set The Date First

While waiting for the crown to click, pull out the crown on the side of your Armitron watch to set the date. 

The crown can be found on either the left or right side of the watch face if you don’t know what it is. It would help if you pulled the crown out until it clicked.

You should push it back in if it clicks twice and then slowly pull it out. If your watch won’t display the date if it doesn’t display date, then it means that the crown will only be pulled out once to set the time. So, you can skip this step.

Step 2: Adjust The Day Of The Week

If your analog watch can display the day/date, then you’ll be able to change the day of the week and time by pulling the crown twice. You have to pull the crown until it clicks twice. 

If it does not have a display, pull the crown until it stops.

Step 3: Adjust The Time By Rotating The Crown

When you set the weekday, date, and time, turn the crown until the hands point at the correct time. Turn the crown back in for the watch to start working.

Step 4: Push The Crown

Finally, you have to push the crown back to set the time. After you have made all the adjustments, press the crown in. That’s it; you are done.

How To Add Multiple Time Zones To Armitron Watch

When you travel in a different time zone, you have to change the time of your watch. Or, you can add another time zone to your Armitron watch.

Here is the step-by-step guide following which you can add multiple time zones to your watch:

  • To enter the second time zone mode, you have to press the “Mode” button.
  • Now tap the “Reset” button. After that, the hour’s icon will start blinking.
  • Now, tap the “ST/STP” button to change the hours.
  • Press the “Mode” button again when you’re done with the correct hour. 
  • After that, the minutes’ icon will start flashing, which indicates that you can change the minutes.
  • Tap the “ST/STP” button to set the minutes.
  • When you are done with the minutes, tap the “Reset” button to set the time.
  • Return to your primary time zone by pressing the “Mode” button.

How To Enable 24-Hours Display

An Armitron watch comes with two types of display times, i-e 12 hours clock and 24-hours clock. This 24-hours time format is called “Military Time” in the United States.

An Armitron watch is set to 12-hours format, but if you want to enable the 24-hours time format, then you can easily do this by following these steps:

  • Press and hold the “Reset” button until the watch beeps.
  • Now you have to press the “ST/STP” button. “AM” and “PM” icons will disappear from the time display on the left side.
  • Now, at last, press the “Reset” button.
It is highly recommended that the buttons should not be pressed forcefully. Press the buttons gently. Additionally, avoid repeatedly pressing the same buttons, as this may cause the buttons to lose their functionality.


That’s it. It was all about changing the time. Hopefully, now you will easily change the time on both Digital and Analog Armitron watches without having any trouble.

Moreover, now you can easily add multiple time zones to your Armitron watch. Also, you can change the time format of your watch.
