Problems with Timesquare watch
Got the Timesquare watch kit for my 13 year old boy for his birthday. He soldered it up last night, as much as I could tell all seemed well (I helped him through the process, he's soldered stuff up before). Here's the problems we're having:
* When you put the battery in, it seems to take several minutes to 'turn on'. At first we thought it was broken since it just didn't do anything for quite a while.
* The time seems to constantly reset: Even in the middle of setting the time, sometimes the watch will just 'turn off'.
* We set the time last night, when he work up in the morning, it was still the exact same time: The time hadn't advanced, but at least it hadn't reset. After a few minutes of fiddling with it though, the time reset again.
* The battery indicator says it's constantly on 'one bar'. I checked the battery, looks like it's putting out around 2.94v.
Any thoughts? Much appreciated.
