    Try a factory reset and if that does not help you can try to let the battery completely drain out and then charge it and see if that helps but it is likely that the battery is depleted. Since TT does not offer a repair service and that product was discontinued years ago (TT Sports went out of business over 3.5 years ago) it may be time for a new watch. You can replace the battery yourself (google for instructions - you will need to source the battery and specialty tools yourself, TT does not support this) but it may not be worth the effort. You may have had it for a year but it would have been manufactured 4 years ago before TT Sports went out of business and the battery will deplete on its own over time. There are plenty of brands out there with better feature sets for less money these days.
