    Question Is there an issue on the gw-3000 stopwatch

    If, as I do, you intend to by a gw-3000X you certainly already watched that :



    Do you agree with the comment I left on Youtube or is there someting that I misunderstood ?

    Owners, did you already check the accuracy of the stopwatch when you change the dial ?

    (Please do not answer that anyway the 24 min stopwatch of the aviator series is useless !! )

    I don't know what comment you left on Youtube, but the operation of the stopwatch in that video looks OK to me.

    What problem do you see?

    I know what you mean, and after consulting the manual the watch can only count 23min 59.99sec with it's stopwatch function, (that's why that dial only goes to 24) so every 2.5 mark is one minute, therefore no there is nothing wrong with the stopwatch function displayed there or the blue hand.

    i think it wasn't pointing to 1.. the 2 hands are driven by the same motor so the minute hand would have been on the way to 1 but not on it actually, since the second hand was already some way around the face.

    Thinks for your comment but I made myself misunderstood.

    What I meant :

    - At 0:14 the stopwatch is started

    - At 0:31 the "whites gloves" changes the mode without stopping the stopwatch

    - At 0:50 the mode is turned on the stopwatch again and the blue hand dials 1 minute (40 for the seconds). It should had remain to 24 (actually 0 minute)Do am I wrong ?

    Yes, you are wrong.

    The blue hand does not make discreet steps, but rather moves continuously while the stopwatch is running.

    The position shown when the stopwatch is turned on again is part way between "24" (actually "0") and the 2.5 mark which represents "1" - the first large hash mark represents "2."

    The watch in the video is working perfectly.

    Thanks for your patience.
