    GW-7900 Moon data

    Hi there. I am rocking a new GW-7900CD-9ER. I love the watch but I am confused over the moon data mode.

    For example, in my locale today, moon age is given as "27.1". Unless I am misinterpreting the display, the age is quoted in days with a precision of 1/10th. However, the value does not change throughout the day, only at midnight. Am I interpreting the data correctly? Is the data only accurate at midnight or another time?

    OK Well after researching our moon's orbit/phase/etc, it would appear that the age quoted by module 3193 is the Moon's age at twelve noon (12:00) in the local time zone. So there we go!

    Edit: And what a suprise, the manual actually does state this. Well, the research was pretty interesting anyway!
