Best clock widgets
Since the function of displaying the date and time is one of the most important for a smartphone, the application developers took care of creating additional clock widgets. They differ from the standard ones in a brighter design and wider editing capabilities.
We offer you to familiarize yourself with the best clock widgets:

How to set time on Samsung Galaxy watch
Standard synchronization is not very accurate and works with an error of 500 milliseconds on average (this is about half a second). This is due to the fact that when it was created, old and rather slow data transfer protocols were used. As a result, information about the current time simply does not have time to arrive on time and is slightly late. This leads to an error, which is corrected by numerous applications for “advanced” time synchronization.
For normal operation, applications need to interfere with Android settings, but by default they do not have this right. Therefore, in order to carry out smart synchronization, you need to have superuser rights, or root-rights on your device. However, those applications that are the most advanced, with a sin in half, but do without them.
There are several Smart Sync apps, and they are all similar to each other. Let’s analyze how to work with them using the ClockSync application as an example.
- Turn on the app. After downloading, it shows us the time set on the device, in comparison with the exact time, which is read from a special server. The difference is approximately 20 s.
In the ClockSync application window, you can see that the time on the phone is lagging behind the real one.
Call the application context menu and select “Synchronize”. If the phone or tablet is rooted, the application will ask you to give it the right to interfere with the system. Click “Submit”.
On a rooted device, the application will ask for access to the settings, which must be given
If there is no ROOT access on the phone, then before synchronizing, go to the application settings (the entrance to them is in the same place, in the context menu) and select the “no root” mode. Some functions may be limited in it, but superuser rights are not required.
The application has a “non-root” mode, in which some functions will not work
After synchronization, the time interval between the current time and the time on the device should be reduced to 0 milliseconds.
After synchronization, the time difference is 0ms
ClockSync can be downloaded from the official page on Google Play. However, this application is one of the most resource-intensive and multifunctional: for example, in it you can change the server with which the time is checked. If you are not that advanced user, then you can use some simpler analogue: for example, Smart Time Sync.

How to Change Clock on Samsung Galaxy Lock Screen?
There are many ways to change the clock on the lock screen, but there are so many ways to get confused. Now we will provide you with several ways to change the clock on the Samsung lock screen.
Review of smart watches Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 (SM-R840 / SM-R850)
Interface, work with the clock, preinstalled programs
There is Tizen 5.5 and OneUI Watch 2.5. The radial menu for applications can be accessed by pressing the bottom button, the top level is accessed by pressing the top button. The menu contains your applications, and there may be several circles with them. You can sort by yourself where and how to place the shortcuts, so that it is convenient for you.
Unlike previous watches in the Active series, there is a mechanical rotating bezel. This is a quick way to scroll through the menu, get to the desired screen.
Having found the desired item, icon, you click on it, then you can scroll the page.
You can change the font size in the settings, there are three scaling options.
Pay attention to how the default watch faces look, each of them can be further customized, change colors, for example, from black to white and vice versa.
For the first time, it became possible to select several dials, which will replace each other in turn. There is no need to do this manually. This option appeared for the first time, so you should definitely not expect any deep settings from it.
In the settings, it became possible to choose a place for notifications on the dial, this is a system function and does not depend on the dial pattern. You can move the icons that appear to the left or right of the center position.
Notifications come to the watch in the usual manner, plus there is S Health (the watch can measure steps, heart rate (both constantly and on demand). Automatic detection of what you are doing works better, this is not only a software, but also a hardware function.
There is an interesting thing in S Health, you can compete with your friends, which of you will take the most steps. And the watch has a widget that shows your progress.
The built-in and autonomous running assistant keeps you energized during your workouts. It works without internet connection, only hours are enough. Of the minuses at the moment, I note that all voice prompts are in English, they are understandable, but I would like to get full localization. I specially looked at the updates, the Russian language at the time of the publication of the review, it did not appear.
It is in this mode that you get access to the VO2MAX measurement, but the instructions say that such a measurement will be shown in one case if you ran on a flat surface and your workout was not short.
A long time ago, there was a measurement of the SP02 parameter in the clock, then it was removed and then returned again (against the backdrop of a pandemic, this is a useful function). You can measure oxygen saturation in your blood, but please remember that this is not a medical device.
I also like that you can now look at all the parameters on the watch, they have become more autonomous. For example, you can see the sleep parameters, you do not need to open the application on your smartphone for this.
Voice control function. this is Bixby, but, unlike smartphones, it supports input in Russian (only input, it will not work to talk to an assistant in Russia). OCR quality is at the level of Frontier, there are no differences.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 46mm.Silver-Unboxing and Setup in 2020
It is very easy to deal with the watch, but there are questions about how to view the gallery (photos become round), and the gallery view painfully resembles a cloud of icons on the Apple Watch. Despite the fact that there is 8 GB of memory inside, only 200 photos from the gallery can be copied to the phone.
Navigation works on Here maps, everything is quite simple, including routes (on foot, by bike or by car, with approximate travel time) are shown. Nothing special, it is unlikely that such navigation will be in demand among ordinary people.
Music can be controlled directly from the watch, and you can also load your songs into the watch‘s memory. If desired, you can connect a wireless headset directly to the watch, then you do not need a phone to listen to music.
The app store is available directly on the watch, that is, you can download apps directly, which is very, very good, the watch in a full sense becomes independent of the smartphone.
From what I really liked in OneUI 2.5, this is the ability to take long screenshots, like on smartphones. The screenshot is created by pressing two hardware keys, and not as before with a button and swiping across the screen. The new way is much more convenient. See how long screenshots turn out.
Cooperation with Microsoft has led to the fact that there is built-in support for MS Outlook, message synchronization is native. There is also built-in support for PowerPoint, the presentation can be controlled from the watch, for example, you turn on the show on the computer, or show the presentation from the phone, and use the bezel to scroll through the slides.
Another point that I really liked is the synchronization of all data with the phone, for example, pictures. You take a screenshot and it appears in the gallery almost instantly. This is a very good feature, which was clearly lacking before.
The Dictaphone application on the watch allows you to record ambient sounds, conversations, it is convenient. From the new I will note speech-to-text recognition, up to 10 minutes of bilingual speech can be recognized and immediately synchronized with the phone, the recordings themselves also appear.
Settings for visually impaired and hearing impaired
One of the functions that an ordinary consumer does not need is a voice assistant for working with watches of visually impaired people. You can download a male or female voice (synthesized by a robot, it is metallic), set up a quick call for an assistant. The screen reads aloud what is displayed on the clock. With the help of a mechanical bezel, you can move between screens; there is a quick call to this assistant. You can also use filters to change the colors on the screen, there are gray colors.
For the hearing impaired, there is sound enhancement (mono mode). Also, a number of other settings that allow you to use the watch despite certain user restrictions.
The screen is 1.2 inches in 41 mm models or 1.4 inches in 45 mm, the resolution is the same everywhere. 360×360 dots. The screen type is SuperAMOLED, it is perfectly readable in the sun, there is an automatic brightness control. Regardless of the diagonal of the screen, ergonomics does not suffer in any way, it is equally good.
The AlwaysOn Display function is supported, that is, the screen can work all the time. A watch with an always-on screen will easily last more than a day (if night mode is enabled, then two days). The screen is covered with Corning® Gorilla® Glass DX. From additional chips. you can enable increased screen sensitivity in the menu, then it will support pressing with gloves.
Automatic dimming of the backlight works well, I prefer to use it, since the watch itself adjusts to the lighting conditions. In AoD mode, the screen is a little muted, but raise your hand and it lights up brighter.
I noticed that the illumination around the dial is made so as to shade the numbers with light, every hour is additionally highlighted.
This is a trifle that seems insignificant, but it creates a certain perception of the watch, focuses on time. For unmarked watch dials, this is an extra help. I can’t say whether I like it or not, but such a change is present.
One of the questions that I was asked regarding this generation of watches is why the screen resolution has not changed? This is a stereotype that came from smartphones, and moreover, came from the past, when the resolution grew until it reached the limit, further growth is meaningless. So here, you can put screens of higher resolution, but you will not see any difference, and the clock will spend more energy on processing the picture. On the screen, the picture looks glossy, it is not perceived as grainy, unless you bring the watch close to your eyes. In a word, there are no problems, everything is fine and so.
Samsung has chosen a win-win option for smart watches, one universal design in the Watch Active line, no moving bezel, a monolithic and nice-looking case. This is a unisex offer for everyone, the watch is suitable for both women and men, you just need to choose the size for your hand.
But at the same time, the line of conditionally men’s watches, launched by Frontier in 2016, has not disappeared anywhere, these are relatively massive watches that look in the style of such a popular mechanical watch for the sea. And this style is liked by many, I am no exception.
Since the positioning of such watches is different, they decided to create them only from stainless steel (there is an option in a titanium case, it is the most expensive), no aluminum. Since the design echoes the Galaxy Watch, this watch becomes outgoing nature, it is no longer produced.

For those who are actively involved in sports such as running, this watch offers another function, namely an autonomous analysis of your workouts, as well as measuring the volume of oxygen consumed (VO2 Max). The watch turned out to be universal and designed for the widest audience, the main thing here is that you like their design, everything else for such an accessory is secondary.
