Choose a different time zone or set the time manually on your Apple Watch using the iPhone.

Nowadays, smartwatches like Apple Watches, Amazfit, and Fitbit are more than advanced than ever. With the smartwatches, you can attend calls, check your heart rate, track your daily activities, and the list goes. With these advanced things, we tend to forget the basic thing that a watch can do to showtime. This article specially deals with how to change time on Apple Watch.

Since Apple Watch is not an independent device, you can’t make changes directly with the watch. To change time on Apple Watch, you need to use the iPhone that is paired with the Apple Watch. The thing to be noted is that the Apple Watch will only be paired and control with iPhone only. You can’t pair an Android smartphone with the Apple Watch.
