Daylight savings – my computer changed the hour by itself, my iPhone did the same, but my watch didn’t. Now let me explain this. It’s an atomic watch that synchronizes the time and date with some satellite according to the timezone I’m in, has a solar battery and according to its manual (which I had to read because I couldn’t figure out how to set it) you only have to set it once and then it stays set for life, no adjustments, no worries about having the exact time, changing the battery, bumping it against … well against anything considering it’s shock resistant or having it breathe underwater since it’s resistant for up to 660ft. So a miracle of technology hanging on my wrist that somehow knows how to do everything automatically except switch to daylight savings.
