How to Use Time Travel on Apple Watch

Though you can't go back and forth in real life, you can use Time Travel on your Apple Watch to turn back and forth time to display information from certain date and time on your wearable device. Refer this hands-on guide to take a peek at the digital time travel!

I like using “Time Travel” on my Apple Watch to have a glance at what was displayed and will appear on the watch face. It offers me a good insight about the things that are displayed on the watch face. And depending on the specific requirement, I can tweak the watchOS to get the desired information like temperature, the phase of the moon and more to stay in sync with the time.

To get started, you need to first enable Time Travel on your Apple Watch. Besides, ensure that you have set up the preferred complications on the watch face.
