Gifts and presents for every occasion

We’ve had this question pop up a few times, so we thought we’d give a detailed explanation of how to set the time on a Blink Time Watch. At the time of writing, these instructions apply to all Blink Time watches including the Mini, Band, Swap and original watch. As they’re all single button design, it’s actually quite simple to set the time and date when you know how.

To set the time and date on a Blink watch:

Step 1

Press the watch face to make the time appear and then hold down the button until the display starts flashing.

Step 2

Press the button to change the hour, cycling between morning and afternoon as noted by the “A” (morning) and “P” (afternoon) symbols to the right of the time. When the correct hour is selected, hold down the button to make the minutes flash.

Step 3

Like before, press the button again to cycle between the minutes until you have the correct time selected, then hold down the button to confirm the choice and switch to date selection.

Step 4

Tap the button to select the current year and then hold it down to confirm your selection. This will switch to the month selection display.

Step 5

Again, tap the button to select the current month, then hold it down to change to the final part of the process, the day.

Step 6

Yup, you guessed it, tap the button until you have selected the current day’s date, then hold down the button to finish the setup on your Blink Watch. Congratulations!
