Allow to adjust time/timezone without having to factory reset
Currently, when the Oculus Quest system clock is false (maybe it identified the wrong timezone at initial setup; the phone had a wrong clock at setup, you changed your location where there is a different local time, and probably when daylight savings time changes (to be seen)), there is no way other then a factory reset to get the system clock of the quest right again. At factory reset the phone time gets synced with the Quest apparently.
Either add a setting within the Oculus Quest home environment, to change and set the current timezone and sync the time with the network or a online time server; or add an option in the Oculus Companion App to resync the current time with the Quest.

I already had to do a factory reset and lost my game data due to some technical error. It make no sense that I can’t change my timezone or clock settings in the settings.

Something (other than the user) set the date to 2037 and then it didn't connect to the internet. But of course it wasn't that simple. First I had to faff about for 40 mins to figure out the date was wrong. Amateur stuff this Facebook.
None of the solutions online worked for me. I had to sideload "open settings" app and you can just simply change the time settings in Android settings.

Why is this even a problem in this day and age? Get it together Facebook!

Please allow the Oculus to sync time from the paired phone app or from the Wifi Network.

Is this really a joke.....
3310 nokia has the option change time and in 2022 still not possible on Quest 2 🤔

I probably can't post a link here, but if you search reddit for "quest 2 timezone", there is a fix.
C'mon Facebook, seriously? A basic UI option from 2000 still isn't implemented in a consumer device from 2021? What a joke.
No just reboot your oculus quest 2 to go to safe mode just hold the power off button and minus on the volume and scroll up and down with the volume and select reboot with the power button
how about the option to mauly set the date and time like you can do with eny phone tablet ipod etc.
The UK just switched to British Summer Time and now my Quest 2 is an hour slow.
How hard would it be to sync from the phone when it's connected?

This is how I fixed it - I used my phone as a Wi-Fi by share a mobile connection by hotspot or tethering whatever, I started the Quest 2, connected to my phone, opened the Oculus app on my phone, connected to the Quest 2 - go to more options, change language, change the language to whatever, it will ask you to restart quest, you do that and TADAAA! It's fixed! Well, it worked for me and I hope it helps other desperate people like myself who could not find an answer to this anywhere for Oculus Quest 2.

I agree..This is such an easy thing to add into options. Everything has the option to change date and time..Or at least auto calibrate with the internet..
For some reason I'm on lord howe Island time and can't change it. Very annoying. Please please fix

Just moved in another country, working daily in VR, so annoyed by this, no way I factory reset for just this stupid reason. Come on Oculus!
this surely is a basic fix? come on oculus!
Gary Farrell commented
There is a simple fix - simply enable syncing time settings with a ntp server (like virtually every other device that has internet access!)
The time shown on my quest has been incorrect since day one. For some reason it shows the correct time if I were in Iceland. Correcting this should be a simple case of going into something in settings. I am not about to do a factory reset and lose all game stats.

The time in my Quest was originally correct. I had to do a factory reset and after that it was off by five hours. So a factory reset caused my problem, not solved it.
It is very annoying and you need to give the user a way to adjust the time.
Why do people do such dumb things as to lock the time? Like, nobody ever travels? Duh!
Factory reset to update time? I hope that ends up on all of their phones!
