never know for sure without a manual).

How to set an Armitron WR330 Watch.
How do you set the time on an Armitron 408177red WR330?
Armitron Men’s 408177RED Chronograph Black and Red Digital Sport Watch.

The name, model, of this watch is confusing. On the front, it says WR330, but on the back, it says M807 and 40/8177. The manual that came with it says M807.   (below)

I finally bought an Armitron watch today – with the owner’s manual. If you are lucky enough to get it with the watch, you will discover it is a single thin strip of paper, printed in very tiny text on both sides. Armitron, in their infinite wisdom(?!), does not provide complete, specific, manuals on their web site – – and only a few watches are specified in their generic instructions.

I have scanned the manual that came with my WR330 (M807) at 300 dpi and provide it here. It is much easier to read, enlarged this way. (Owners manual, sides 1 & 2 {click to enlarge} ) —>

I saw this watch some months ago at a Sears store and though I liked the looks of it enough to buy it, but there was no owners manual provided with the watch and I could find no owners manuals at Armitron’s web site, (Good grief!), so I refused to buy it. Today, 3-26-2011, Sears was displaying them again, this time on sale at an even lower price, and WITH the owner’s manual. I bought it. I discovered the manual was printed in tiny fine print, so I scanned it at 300 dpi. (it looks right for my WR330, but says it is for an M807 not WR330, but a google search comes up with nothing – like there is no M807 watch.[?] – – despite the fact that using a magnifying glass on the back of my watch, I see “Water Resist 330 ft.” and 40/8177 and M807 ! So, it IS an M807.) I checked around with Google and discovered that there is still no good source of the manual under any of these numbers and letters. I found 2 web sites where someone had hand written instructions for setting the time on a WR330. Appreciation goes out to the few people for that. Still, how do you use the other functions…? How to use all the functions is here from the 1 sheet manual that came with my watch. (above, sides 1 and 2)

Today, from a google search, I found someone who found some manuals at! 2 small words, in fine print, on only one page of their web site points to the manuals, “watch instructions” on one, hidden, page and they are all generic. They are not the instruction manuals provided with the watches. They are generic: 1 for men’s digital, 1 for womens digital, … etc. … better than nothing, at least if one gets lucky enough to find them.
Here is the pdf generic men’s digital watch from that page. It is the best Armitron can do !?!? from:
For the specific instructions for your WR330/M807 watch, download the 2 images provided here, side 1 and side 2, and print them full-size, on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper.

    I love this watch.
    Any idea on where to get a replacement band/strap?

    Just the usual … Wallmart, Target, Sears, etc. Armitron is not very helpful.

    I have an ARMITRON WR330. I need to reset my watch and have lost the instructions.
    Please help!

    the instructions are here.

  6. Norine Gray on January 29, 2016 at 4:17 pm

    I’m trying to get an extender or links for the armitron watch I bought my husband for xmas. Not large enough. I keep calling Armitron and no one will pick up. Please help.

    Since Armitron is so unresponsive, the only option must be to buy a “third party” watch band. This is unfortunate.

    I saw this watch at a Walmart around a year ago while shopping for a watch that I could wear in the shower,(since I travel extensively and tend to leave things behind in hotel rooms and public showers.)It was love at first sight, plus the time on it was accurate and set correctly for the time zone I was in at the time. The price was a steal for such a sleek attractive and water resistant(WR330)watch, so I snatched it up instantly. So all was perfect until “daylight saving time” and the need then to adjust the time. I did read the tiny instructions(under magnification of coarse) whenever I bought it but by this time I had thrown it out after the famous Walmart 30day warranty had expired, and consequently wore the watch for months with the wrong time until finally Binging a search on the web. Yours came up among first choices and your post is concise and direct. Thanks for sharing.

  12. fred on November 9, 2014 at 3:07 pm

    so how Do you reset the armarton watch ?

    view and download the 2 manual pages. just follow the directions. No problem

  13. Stan Brown on November 2, 2014 at 11:34 am

    Thanks for scanning the manual! I got my watch at Amazon, and it did come with M807 instructions, but still in flyspeck type.

    I was going to scan it myself and enlarge it, but it’s tricky scanning a non-flat strip of paper on my scanner, so I though of doing a search. Your page came up as the first result — bravo!

    Glad people are still benefiting from this page

  15. Steve on July 3, 2014 at 3:53 pm

    WR330 isn’t the watch model, it simply means “Water Resistant to 330 feet”. Many of their watches say that. Your model is 40/8177. Armitron is a trademark of the E. Gluck Corporation of New York. It’s unfortunate they don’t support their watches (nothing on their website), next time decide if you want to support this kind of company.

    Re-read the content of this page and See the owners manual page 2, scanned above. It is an M807. We did enhance the sub headings to clarify it a little. Thank you.
    However, the only name they put on it and a few others, is “WR330” so, far as any customer is concerned, they are all WR330’s and that is what most people will search for on Google. Armitron/Gluck is disorganized – a mess – true! But some of their watches look good and last. “Don’t buy one unless it comes with its manual.”

    Received this one for Christmas from my cousin. I’m a Segway Tour guide and am excited about having a durable, classy watch to wear when the season resumes. Your input has indeed made it easier to set . . .

    Many thanks and Best of ’14 to all.

    You are very welcome.

  18. drea on August 22, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    Can anyone tell me what SP means? And what the small blinking TR means on the left-hand side?

    depends on what mode you are in. Print and follow the owner’s manual here and you will know.

  19. Rich on July 4, 2013 at 7:38 am

    I found these instructions also. What they don’t tell you is that should you ever try to replace the battery, it is a CR1620, not the CR2025 or CG2016 listed on the instructions.


  20. anthony on June 15, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    thank you so much. i bought this for 30 bucks and
    was worth but had difficulties with it soooo
    thank you

    you are welcome

  21. david on June 9, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    I heard rumors that this black and red Armitron talks few words. I really disagree yet please confirm to those who have wild imaginations thanks for your time.

    Yeah, someone has a wild imagination.

  22. gerardo on January 2, 2013 at 9:42 am

    Thanks so much for posting these instructions! I purchased my WR330 at Ross for 9 Bucks and from what I’m reading here, I made a great investment. And with your help, was able to set time and date and the hourly chime on my watch! Happy 2013 everyone! 🙂 !!

    You got a VERY good deal. Happy New Year!

  23. eric on December 20, 2012 at 8:37 am

    I’ve had my WR330 for three years and it’s still goin strong. I bought it for 20 bucks. I’ve had 500 dollar watches go to sh*t in less time. Best investment ever.

  24. mike on November 9, 2012 at 9:55 am

    thanks I used my zoom level and raised it up to 400% and had a clear reading of the manual. thanks again…

  25. Roberto on October 10, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    A great thank you very much, from Brazil.

  26. Julie on September 4, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    Just bought the woman’s digital armitron. No manual with mine either. Holy cow! Thank you, this was first site I went to when I googled Armitron Manual, guess I was lucky!!

  27. Hal B on August 23, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    You are a life saver. Your instruction sheet saved the day!

    I spent countless hours searching for an answer on how to set this watch with nothing to show for it.

    I am grateful I came upon your post.

  28. on August 23, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    Many Thanks!

    I spent 2.5 hours fruitlessly searching the web for an answer but to no avail,. that is until I came upon your post and solution (watch set instructions)

    You saved me from throwing out the watch!

  29. erick on February 17, 2012 at 4:19 pm

    Thanks a lot !!

  30. erick on February 17, 2012 at 4:19 pm

    Gracias !!

  31. Hiram Howard on January 30, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    I purchased the same watch today figured out how to set but the problem I am having is it seems pretty dim is this normal. Could it be a bad battery
    or are they a way to set the dimmer and brightness?

  32. Eustace on October 5, 2011 at 4:50 am

    I was lucky enough to come to your website before trying to find the manual at Armitron’s! Thanks!

  33. Kevin on August 20, 2011 at 2:16 am

    “WR330” means “water resistant 330 feet”. It is not the model number. Armitron lists water resistance in feet rather than in meters like most other manufacturers.

    Thanks for posting the instructions. Mine didn’t come with any either.

  34. Damien on July 5, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    Thank you very very much. I was getting frustrated, this saved my time.

  35. Mark on May 12, 2011 at 8:26 am

    That’s odd, the face of my WR330 looks very different from what is depicted in your instructions and from what appears in the PDF. Seconds have their own little window and the date is nowhere to be seen. They couldn’t even think of a new model number? I see on the back there is another number, 40/8125, which must be the real model number, although it is not one listed in the PDF.

    Sounds like Armitron is making a mess of things. Thanks for informing us.

  36. Grateful Child on May 5, 2011 at 9:30 am

    Just to say thanks. All the other website links for setting the Armitron WR330 were wrong. I’m grateful …

    You are welcome, and thank you.
