Which time zone is used when setting an ending date and time for a timer?
Currently, the timer only uses GMT+8 time zone (Beijing time). The timer feature may not suit your purpose perfectly if you reside somewhere in a different time zone.
Sometimes, when I set a 1:00 timer, the timer starts counting down from 1:00:01. Why is this?
This occurs because your local time zone is different from the GMT+8 time zone, the standard time zone of the timer feature. As a result, the starting time of the timer may differ from the time you set by several seconds.
