    OP6 seems to be missing a notifications bar clock with seconds. I used to turn it on in the System UI Tuner in my OP3T, but that seems to be missing from OP6. Please help. I need that feature!

    If you enable it, there won't be enough space for rest of the icons to fit in that tiny area. Blame the #Notch

    Just out of curiosity, why do you want this option? I'm sure it seems odd for most.

    I have manual watches I set every few days, and I also time stuff for sports. It's really useful to me.

    I can see how that could help you. Unfortunately OP have removed a couple of options regarding the status bar because of the notch. I miss a couple of them too, battery percentage (no icon) and internet speed.

    Hope they listen and put it back like in previous models.

    I agree. I hate the battery icon. I usually just have the percentage on there.

    First, I think the lack of space is not a problem. Usually, I can see just one icon next to the clock.
    And secondly, I need the seconds because everyday at around 8:11:30 I receive a very important business message and I like to see how many seconds are left till the message comes in. I know this might sound akward to many, but that's the way it is... :)

    I don't think you can put seconds, but you can always download an app from play store..

    or head over to www.worldclock.com this site will show you the exact time!

    I'm really missing the seconds clock option too (and my brother also). Yes, it takes yet some more space up, but I'm using small scaling and fonts anyway. There's plenty of space on my display to squeeze a full clock plus a few icons in front of the notch.

    And yes, I know, there are some less convenient alternatives available, but is it really too much to ask to get this simple checkbox back, for all those who really miss it? (PS: Especially since battery % is coming back too in the next update)

    FYI, I'm for example used to having trains leave exactly in time, or maybe a bit late, but not earlier. The difference between having a few seconds or almost a minute to catch the train can save you quite some sweat. ;)

    I completely agree. It should be an option. It is very useful to me too. If people don't like it, they don't have to enable it.

    Is this in the new 5.1.6 update? I would love to have the option to add seconds to my clock.

    @Gary C. An option to display seconds on the clock in the top bar is really useful for product launches, buying tickets, setting watches, timing fights, etc. It used to be in the system UI Tuner, but then it disappeared. Having the option would be nice. There's enough room for it. Please, please bring it back.

    Maybe try crono surf. It's a clock app with a live wallpaper synced to your phone time with a second hand. Screenshot_20180609-153238.png

    Yeah. I'm thinking about buying a watch, this seems like a reasonable trial run

    Under settings>display> status bar> time>show hours minutes and seconds.

    everyone here was making it seem like a big deal and saying it's not possible. Please, if you cannot answer the question, don't. It's not helpful to post other things that do not answer the question. It's frustrating.
