Daylight Savings and the monitor

Updated: Mar 12

How does daylight savings affect your use of the monitor? Be prepared! You don't want to miss a test.

The start of Daylight Savings!


People mid-cycle with the original Clearblue Fertility Monitor, please account for the time change when testing. If your 6 hour window for testing this cycle was 4am -10am, it's now effectively 5am -11am. If you try to test at 4:30am it will not allow you. The monitor does not have an internal clock that adjusts for daylight savings time, just a 24 hour timer. When you reset next cycle, it will be back to normal. People in the first 5 days of the cycle, can reset (retrigger) the monitor to adjust their testing window as they would like it this cycle. Likewise, people mid-cycle with the Clearblue Advanced Touchscreen Monitor, your monitor time will be one hour off the new adjusted time. If your testing window on the monitor is 5am -11am, that relates to 6am - noon in "real time." You can change the monitor clock's time when you reset at the beginning of the next cycle. The monitor allows a time change of +/- 1 hour at the beginning of a cycle to account for daylight savings. If you are in the first 4 days of the cycle you can change the time on the touchscreen monitor like this: On the home screen, tap settings (gears) / select "Time" / select time change forward one hour.


The End of Daylight Savings!


Clocks fall back one hour. People mid-cycle with the original Clearblue Fertility Monitor, account for the time change when testing. If your 6 hour window for testing this cycle was 4am -10am, it's now effectively 3am - 9am. If you try to test at 9:30am it will not allow you. The monitor does not have an internal clock that adjusts for daylight savings time, just a 24 hour timer. When you reset next cycle, it will be back to normal. People in the first 5 days of the cycle, can reset (retrigger) the monitor to adjust their testing window as they would like it this cycle.
