    Does this happen even if you don't touch any buttons during the battery change?
    Usually SJCAM cameras keep their date/time, if the battery is replaced quickly enough and no button is pressed, when battery is out of the camera. It seems, that the clock is relying on some capacitor during battery replacement, and by pressing any buttons when no battery inserted, drains this capacitor at once.

    I’m tried replace without touch any button but remain same, it’s seem like nonsense for a product which in 2017 has failed to record time of photo captured. photo of camera is use to record moment of important, if timer failed mean I will lost all info in future when look back in future . Even cheeper Yi Camera and few other model like eken and gopro also no this problem.

    Every time changed change battery will need recalibrate time and date, or sync with phone before use, battery of sj cam design for hours record, technically mean every hour when change battery will need update time and date. Mean whole machine if change battery 1000 time mean need set for 1000 time.

    Engineer of sjcam please act as important issue if they care what the BASIC camera should do, “capture moment and able to know when the moment is happen” .

    Does this happen even when opening the battery tray and pulling out the fully charged battery for a few seconds, and then pushing it back again, without touching any buttons at the time, when battery is not connected?
    Could you take a video (by your phone or something) of this problem?
