When it comes to health and fitness features, Google Wear OS lags behind a lot of competitors, but smartwatches using the platform are usually really good at being a traditional wristwatch. Nonetheless, a bug has come up with Wear OS always-on display due to daylight savings time, but it’s an easy fix.
Android Police highlights a problem that appears to be relatively widespread on Reddit, where some Wear OS users notice a discrepancy with their display at all times. Upon changing the time for daylight savings on Sunday, the always-on clock stuck with the older time, while the watch as a whole displays the right time.
Why this is happening is not entirely clear, but it should not affect the watch’s alarms. It only seems to affect the display that is always on and keeps it off for an hour. Notably, the always-on display seems to be a somewhat common issue. I’ve noticed in the past that the always-on display sometimes takes a little while to sync back up when traveling across time zones.
Fortunately, this daylight savings bug with Wear OS can be fixed very easily. Rebooting the affected watch and the connected smartphone quickly should cause the two to re-synchronize.
