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.

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!

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!

I posted this feedback link also on r/OculusQuest: https://www.reddit.com/r/OculusQuest/comments/c8o35g/allow_us_to_adjust_timetimezone_without_having_to/
As someone said, it doesn't need to be a setting, as the Quest could/should also just pick up the time from the network.
I can confirm that the Quest currently doesn't seem to sync the time with the network. I noticed my time was wrong yesterday, and today the time was still wrong - before I indeed factory reset it to get it right again.
