How does Spar work when traveling?

Penalties and misses are calculated depending on the timezone where you use Spar. If you usually use Spar in PST, your penalties will be calculated in PST until we can update on your timezone. If you take the red eye from California to New York, your penalties will still be calculated in PST until you open the application up in your new timezone. 

We recommend when entering a new timezone, launch the application in order to let Spar know of your current timezone, otherwise your account will be processed from the last known timezone, which is probably not what you want.

If you have a pending check-in for the day and you're about to get on an airplane, remember that misses will still be calculated from your origin timezone. We ask that you do not join a challenge if you know you will not be able to check in due to travel. If you ever find yourself in potential trouble due to extensive traveling, we're here to help!
