I've replaced the battery twice in this Ironman Triathalon and within 3 weeks it's dead. o|

I'm going to replace one more time and then call it quits.

When I opened the watch the first time, there was a circular metal thing that was in the back plate that cracked and fell off. I salvaged the pieces that I could and krazy-glued them back onto the back plate. It is pictured below in the last 2 pics.

Does the missing corner of the metal circle pictured below have anything to do with the battery dying so quickly?

thanks you in advance!

That metal disc is the speaker. Is the watch still beeping? The missing area could be where the watch makes contact with the speaker. There might be a short causing the battery to drain.

it still beeps (while it's working)... I guess it's a short... I'll try again with another battery but who knows :-(

I've had similar problems when I tried using cheapo batteries. Problems disappeared when I used a brand name like Duracell or Energizer (unless of course that is what you are trying now - in that case disregard this post.). :)

Maybe try rotating the back 180*? If it is a short, that may move things away from each other.
