I'm seeing the same issue. After I did a factory reset on my watch, it is set the Korean timezone even though it is connected to my phone and my phone is in Central timezone.

@aaduthoma & @Futte98: I came across this neat interactive guide for setting the time and date on a Gear S3. It's from ATT's site, but any of the steps in that any good for you guys in getting the right time on your watches?

Hello folks. I'm writng from Morocco where, in October, the government unexpectedly decided to keep DST all year. This has caused a lot of problems, but up until know, at least I could "trick" my phone (S9) by manually setting it, not using time-zone settings.  And my watch, a Gear3, would sync with that correctly. Yesterday, however, there was an update in the Wear software, and since then, the watch is adding one hour to the phone's time, regardless if I got through the steps of dis-connecting bluetooth, re-setting, etc.  I just wondered if anyone else was seeing this. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. 


NEXT DAY: This was solved by Factory Reset. Not a big deal.
