    Casio Oceanus running 4 mins ahead

    My few months old Casio Oceanus Manta has been running 4 minutes early since a few weeks.
    I charged it in the Sun. Kept it by the window at night for it to acquire the time radio signal but no difference.

    Should I manually adjust time ( then whats the point of it being radio controlled ?) . Also the way to set the time manually seems a little tricky .
    Or should I take the second hand to the REC sign to see if it will acquire signal in a few hours?

    Suggestions?

    Thanks

    Sync inevitably becomes a pain to me. Did the watch sync? Did it not? Why not? I'd prefer to see Casio simply build a HAQ quartz movement similar to Citizen 0100s, Citizen Chronomaster, or Grand Seiko 9F and no hassles or external time dependencies.

    Would you also pay 2-3k for it ???

    I like HAQ. But on the other hand, with Bluetooth = sync is certainty. The chance that even entry level Casio/Oceanus will be off by more than 0.1 sec within 10 years is next to zero. HAQ will be off by more than a minute after 10 years.

    If Casio/Oceanus sort out small sync bugs in their software (which still remain as of July 2019: for example phone restart breaks connection and requires one manual sync to "prime" auto sync) it will be time to only consider cesium HAQ as competition.

    From us obsessive compulsive disorder patients’ perspective, it’s either synced therefore exactly accurate, or not. There’s no middle ground. 1sec a year does not bring any consolation vs 100sec a year. :P definitely does not worth the price whatsoever.
