    It's not a hand. The reflection and the angle of the picture gives it that appearance. It's just the design around the sub-dial.

    The beast is here. Took me a little while to figure out what was going on with the 24hr dial. Thought I was going crazy for a minute there lol.

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

    Hey guys, just a quick question. I did a manual sync and it got the correct time and timezone but just hung on the t+p configuration until I pressed the button again. I then pressed the button once to check the signal received and it points to 'No' but then goes and shows me the correct timezone and approximate latitude. I've tried manually syncing it a couple of times since and it seems to work but gets stuck on the t+p until I press a button. Should I be waiting longer for the GPS to finish working?

    You are not leaving it long enough to sync. It can take up to 13 minutes - it's not hung on t+p....it's still trying to sync. Also, you only have to do a t+p sync once after that just do a t (time) sync.

    Ha, I thought so. I was getting a bit impatient staring at a motionless dial. I'll try again tomorrow.

    I am assuming you just bought the watch and did the manual sync for the first time. Beside syncing for time and position, it will also do a leap second data download to adjust for earth movement to give a more precise time. This is normally done twice a year (in June and December) when the leap second data are available via the GPS. Thus for your first sync it will try to do the leap second data sync which can take much longer of upto 13mins or more. That is why you see the second hand stuck at T+P for very long time. Just be patient and wait until it completes. Do not press any button which will cancel the sync. Once done the next manual sync will be much quicker until the next leap second data available which if available will be in June and then again in December.

    Ah OK. Thanks for the info. I guess I was just being to impatient and couldn't be bothered standing in the sun for 15 mins.

    Loving the watch though. I can't stop sharing at it and admiring its engineering. When I put it on though I did kinda miss my Rangeman which is good cos it means I still have a use for it with the barometer and altimeter.
