Question about Timex Expedition E Tide Temp Compass wristwatch

1 Answer

My time e-tide compass sohws large deviations (>90 degrees) after calibration. I've tried calibration several times, each resulting in slightly different north. The degree of variation per heading is constant however. Might a low battery be the cause or any other suggestion? Regards, Bas

Low battery can cause this type of fault! Make sure after changing the battery to do the all reset inside of the watch. If this does not work get in contact with Timex for how to have their watch sent for service.

No instruction manual


For Compass Adjustment search on Google or FixYa

For Temperature calibration:
1. Pull the crown to most extended position (2 notches)
2. Temp hand moves to a default position
3. Move hand in + or - direction by pressing temp or tide buttons (above and below crown button)
4. When done, push crown to 0 position
(I used melting ice water to calibrate and fix to 0 deg C)

For Tide calibration:
1. Pull crown to middle position (1 notch)
2. Move hand in + or - direction by pressing temp or tide buttons (above and below crown button)
3. When done, push crown to 0 position

Hope this helps

Compass is no longer pointing North


I had the same issue. I found that if you re-calibrate the compass the same way you did the first time, then it will act properly. I've had to do this a couple of times and it works.

Cmpass (COM)
The integrated compass tells you the direction (e.g.SSW for south­southwest) as well as the number of degrees. To determine a direc­tion,hold the watch horizontally with the 12 o'clock position poin­ting in thedirection you want to know.
General information about the compass
The compass always points to the magnetic north pole.Maps are always drawn in alignment with the geographic north pole (verticallyupwards at 90 ). The declination angle denotes the deviation between themagnetic north pole and the geographic north pole. This deviation depends onwhere you are located. To obtain exact results, the declination angle must beentered into the compass.Remember to change the angle when travelling abroad.Within the UKthere is no need to change the angle because deviati­ons are only slight.Overleaf you will find a table showing the declination angles for a number ofcities around the world.A fault has occurred if the display shows"ERR" while taking a direction or calibrating the compass. Thecompass must be re-calibrated (refer to section after next) .
