Hey you! It‘s almost that time of the year again, when we set our clocks ahead an hour for Daylight Savings Time. But what about our watches? How do we make sure they’re in sync with the time change? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a step-by-step breakdown for resetting the time on both a digital and an analog watch, with our best-selling T80 and Easy Reader as examples.
Resetting the time on our T80:
- Press the set button. You’ll notice that the seconds will begin flashing.
- Press the start/stop button to reset the seconds so that they begin counting from 0.
- Press the mode button when done. This will bring you to the minutes, which should begin flashing.
- Press the start/stop button to set the desired minutes.
- Press the mode button when done. This will move onto the hours, which should begin flashing.
- Press the start/stop button to set the desired hour. PAY ATTENTION: take notice of the A or P, signifying AM or PM, in the top righthand corner next to the date. Make sure you are setting the hour appropriately.
- When the desired hour is chosen, simply press the set button to save the new time and exit the setting mode.
Important to note:
- The T80 has a feature that beeps every time the hour changes. When this feature is on, the colon between the hour and minutes will flash. To turn this feature on or off, press the start/stop button.
Now that you’re a master at resetting the time on your T80, shop our digital watches for men and digital watches for women to see other styles you may like.
Resetting the time on our Easy Reader:
First, determine if your watch has a date feature.
If there is a date feature:
- Pull the crown out to the furthest position. This will usually take 2 clicks.
- Twist the crown forward or backward to reset the time. If you lose track and accidentally keep going around, make sure to pay attention to AM and PM, as the date will change at midnight.
If there is no date feature:
- Pull the crown out to the furthest position. This will usually take 1 click.
- Twist the crown forward or backward to reset the time.
Important to note:
- There’s a practice of not adjusting the time on a watch or clock during the hours of 10PM and 2AM, so it’s a good idea to see if this is mentioned in the instruction manual for your watch.
Not all watches have the same functionality, and the above steps may not apply to every watch. It’s always best to consult the watch’s manual if you’re unsure of how to adjust yours. Once you’ve set your watch to the correct time for Daylight Savings, double-check that it’s accurate. You can do this by comparing it to your phone’s clock, which should have automatically updated.
And there you have it! Setting your watch for Daylight Savings is a breeze. Just remember to double-check that the time is accurate, and then go out and enjoy the extra hour of daylight. Happy spring!
