Pocket Reform is not keeping time anymore

After my pocket ran out of battery once and died it is not able to keep the time anymore. Every time I reboot it resets the time to a few days back.

Currently I sync the time after every restart manually with

sudo ntpdate pool.ntp.org

Anyone else with the same issue? Any idea how to fix it?

Perhaps you have to set the hardware clock manually once:

sudo hwclock --systohc

hwclock can also help you debug the issue with some status info about the hardware clock.

Thanks that actually worked!

As you pointed out in the irc channel people may need to install hwclock via

sudo apt install util-linux-extra
