Hey everyone,

Loving my Elementum Ventus so far. The last two days have been a bit troubling, though. I'm hoping someone can help me with this issue.

Sunday night I set the alarm for 8am. The next morning I noticed that my phone woke me up (backup alarm) and my watch didn't. Upon further inspection I realized that the time had reset to 12:00pm and the alarm was off and set at the default 6:30am, the Barometer cleared itself and started with a new reading, and the compass wasn't calibrated/setup. The only thing that didn't reset was the date.

So I reset everything back the way it was, but it happend again this morning.

I found this link about the Core Forum | SuuntoWatches.com where the moderator was asking about leaving the watch locked on a daily basis. I keep mine locked all the time. Is this wrong? Am I killing the battery? I just recently started locking the display so I think it might have something to do with that.

The Suunto Watches forum doesn't seem very active so I thought I would bring this question here.

Is my battery just dying? Is this the result of locking the watch every day?

Yep! It was the battery. Every time this has happend I have been asleep since it was my morning alarm. I didn't even notice till I put it on later in the day. Earlier I set an alarm. The second it went off the low battery indicator finally came on. I just got a new battery installed.

I do have another related question though. The seal on my watch was still in great condition since the watch is only a few months old so I didn't use my Suunto replacement battery kit with a new seal, I just bought a separate battery. When I would push the back-case into the watch case it would just pop back out (i'm guessing because the air was trying to escape around the tight seal). Since I couldn't get it to stay down I just held it together very tight and screwed it back together. Is this a sufficient seal? Do I need to have the watch case-back stay down on its own before screwing it back together? I just want to verify that this is the proper way to do it before I start wearing it.

Thanks for the responses guys. Whew, thought something was wrong with it.

Tightening the screws will usually compress the seal. Remember it doesn't need a lot of force to keep water out. If you got the case back on and it's tight, and you didn't cut your seal when you removed the case back ( by prying at it with a screwdriver) it should be fine.
