Timex Ironman

I was scuba diving this weekend and I typically wear my Timex Ironman watch as it is rated to 200m, is not particularly expensive and is easier for me to manage than my Aeris computer.

However, the battery was dead and I did not realize it since I have been using the Garmin Fenix 6 Pro as my primary watch for everything.

In the past, I have had the battery replaced at a watch shop, but I cam across the following video and it felt like it could be within my wheelhouse.

It was a straightforward as the video suggested.  I had a little trouble getting the battery cover off and then putting it back on, but otherwise it was as easy as the video suggested.

I was thrilled to having a working backup watch again for $1.97 plus tax for the CR2016 battery.
