LED Watch Instructions

Several LED watches display the time numerically for quick and easy reference. The typical watch instructions show setting and viewing the time date modes under the control of three buttons that discretely protrude from the sides of these digital watches. Each LED watchmaker uses a different order for pressing the buttons to set their watches. One set of watch instructions is outlined for illustration.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Hold the LED watch with the display upright and facing you. Push the button on the upper right side with a finger to show the time setting. Press the indented button on the left inward with the point of a ballpoint pen within three seconds to make the numbers start flashing.

  2. 2

    Push the button on the upper right to move the hour forward. Digital watches advance the numbers as you hold pressure on the buttons. Note the lighted dot on the left of the hour that indicates the AM or PM period. Move the hour forward to the correct time and period.

  3. 3

    Press the button on the lower right to move the minutes forward. Let go of the button after setting the minutes to the current time and the screen will go back to its normal display in three seconds.

  4. 4

    Push the button on the lower right to show the current date setting. Push the indented button on the left within three seconds to make the date flash. Push the upper right button to move the month forward and the lower right button to move the day forward. The screen shows its regular display after no button is pushed for three seconds.

  5. 5

    Push the button on the upper right to read the time. Push the lower right button to view the date. Some LED watches keep the time lit for easy reading. Other watches leave the screen darkened to conserve battery power until one of the buttons is pressed.

Tips and warnings

  • Read the watch instructions or user manual for the particular LED watch you are setting. Push the buttons in various combinations and watch which numbers flash. Push different buttons to see which one changes the settings if watch instructions are not available.
