    I also don't know if the GPS signal includes year and date info. I'd suspect that it would, but that's just a guess. Somebody on this forum is bound to know the answer. If not, google and some research should uncover the answer.
    Really?
    You cannot take a few minutes to open the manual???

    Hey man, there's no need for that attitude. First of all, I did look at the manual - but at a different section - it's a large manual. Secondly, I am not the one who "needs" answers to these questions - I did not ask the original question here, remember? And also, in my last post I was talking about the specific information contained within the GPS signal - the manual does not contain all of this information in detail.

    Re: GPW : "T H E B E A S T" THREAD OF AWESOMENESS - Title says it all.

    As promised some videos comparing the sync duration between the Beast and the Seiko Astron.

    1st Video - Autosync - sorry about the video orientation - taken with my iPhone. This is to test how soon the watches will sync when expose to adequate light for the 1st time during the day. As can been seen, the Astron starts to sync around 6sec into the video. It did a time sync only (indicated by the sec hand moving to 12h position & the indicator in the top subdial moving to '1' which mean it will look for just 1 satellite, also the sec hand with move to 1h position once it located the 1 satellite needed). Once sync complete the sec hand will move to 12min position marked with a Y indicating yes. The whole process took around 17s in this test. In this comparison the Beast has yet to react even when the Astron is done.



    For the time & position sync comparison, I recorded 2 videos separately as I was alone so can't operate both watches together.

    2nd Video - Beast Time + Position Sync.
    7s into the video, the Beast starts the T+P sync after pressing & hold the bottom right button. It completed the sync around 33s later.



    3rd Video - Astron Time + Position Sync.
    On the Astron this is done by pressing and holding the top right button. The sec hand will move to 12h position (time sync only) and if kept holding the button will move to 6h position (T+P sync). On the top subdial the indicator will move to '4+' which mean it will search for 4 or more satellites needed to determine position. Once started the sec hand will move to show how many satellites are located. From the video, the sync started 6s into the test after press & hold the top right button. As can be seen it located 4 satellites and then 5 satellites shown by the sec hand moving from 4h to 5h position. The sync was completed after 32s when the sec hand moved to 12min position marked with Y showing yes.



    Thus both the watches took around the same duration to achieve sync in my test today. However, I would reckon many factors will affect the result and if I repeat the test again on other day, different result may come up. But one thing is for sure that the Astron does initiate auto time sync faster.

    There you go folks! HAGWE

    Exceptional acquisition !!! As for 'gave in' ??? ... I bought mine from reviews & internet pic's ... I might have 'given in'.

    You, on the other hand, got to strap it on your wrist first ... you didn't have a choice (or a chance) !!!
    "watchuseek" ... From a lost indigenous dialect ... meaning ... "Bet you can't buy just one !!!"
