Activate and Set Time Ahead

Activate and set time ahead: Apple Watch keeps time perfectly, and so you do not need to adjust the time on the device. The watch synchronizes to within 50 milliseconds of the global time standard according to official time servers on the Internet.

Some users however prefer to display a time ahead of the real time (for example, they run late as a rule and set their watch ahead to compensate). It is possible to adjust the time using the Set Clock Face Display Time Ahead feature.
