How to Reset the Time on a Fossil Smartwatch

Resetting time on the Fossil smartwatch is the same as setting or changing the time. The method is similar. Follow the instructions above to reset the time on your fossil smartwatch. There are two ways to set the time on your smartwatch.

  1. Automatic Time and Date: Your smartwatch will automatically fetch the current time and date from the mobile. It will update according to the current date of your mobile. It is an easy way if you regularly get connected with your phone. But if you don’t usually use your phone to use the smartwatch, it is better to use the manual method, where you have to input your time and date manually.
  2. Manually set the Time and Date: In this method, you can manually enter the time and date. It will not auto synchronize the date and time with the internet or mobile. Once you input the time and date, it will stick to that. If the date and time change, you can reset it again.
