Time and date

You set time and date during the initial startup of your watch.

Adjust time and date from the settings under General » Time/date where you can also change time and date formats.

In addition to the main time, you can use dual time to follow the time at a different location, for example, when you are traveling. Under General » Time/date, tap Dual time to set the time zone by selecting a location.

Once you have paired with Suunto app, your watch gets updated time, date, time zone and daylight-saving time from mobile devices.
Under General » Time/date, tap Auto time update to toggle the feature on and off.
