For some reason, we as humans have this twice-a-year ritual where we change all of the clocks around us. Fortunately, with most of our clocks connected to the Internet, the hassle of having to change the time manually is a thing of the past.

Still, it never hurts to make sure your gadget will change the time.

Why it matters to make sure your clock is correct

Your internal clock will still need a week or so to adjust, but your phone or computer’s clock has probably started to replace the wall clock you’ve had in your home or office. You don’t want to have your alarm go off at the wrong time, and you don’t want to have to rush to a meeting that doesn’t start for another hour.

How to adjust for DST on Fire TV

Amazon’s Fire TV devices don’t let users turn off automatic switching for DST, so you don’t have to change it back.

Other devices

Smart displays like the Google Home Hub and Amazon Echo Show will automatically pull the time from your Internet router, as will any other smart gadgets that you have connected to your WiFi network. Most routers will automatically update their clocks as well, so you shouldn’t have to log in to the router’s management screen.

Smartwatches, hybrid watches, and fitness bands will adjust their time based on your smartphone, so you should wake up and have the time adjusted for you. Again, you may be able to set the time from your watch’s companion app manually, but you shouldn’t need to.

Amazon’s cool new connected microwave doesn’t release until November 14th, so we’ll need to wait until spring to see how that handles time changes. Presumably, it’ll just get the new time from your Internet router.
