    Toolwatch app

    Hi all,
    I don’t have any fancy timeographer machines, but recently downloaded a free app called ‘Toolwatch’ on the iPhone. Has anyone else used the same app and is it reliable?
    It’s gave my little Seiko Lord Marvel Hi beat from 1976 a -1.3 secs/d deviation, which I thought was pretty amazing for a 43 year old watch!

    I have it, and I'm not a fan. Sometimes it gives me readings that I know are correct, and other times it gives me wildly bad readings I know are incorrect. Not worth it, in my opinion, and I don't even use it anymore. I just measure my watch against the official US time at NIST and track the changes.

    I've been using just out of boredom, basically, but I'm also not a fan. Half the time it doesn't even tell me what my deviation is, it just says something like "good job, you checked." Maybe it would work better if I sync'd all my watches to the atomic clock before tracking them, but the way the app is written, you can't just zero out the log for a watch, you have to delete the watch and start over.*

    *if that's incorrect, please point me to where I can "reset" a watch's log as I would love to do that. I've tried deleting the most recent measurement, but that doesn't seem to actually work.

    I've been using it out of curiosity but am not on board yet. I too wish you could zero out a watch without deleting it. I also think it would be good to have a notes section per reading to track things like wearing it overnight versus not, and it what stored position.

    I used it for a little while, but found WatchTracker on my iphone so much better for my purposes. I enjoy the graphs and data it provides.

    I use the Google App.
    I google" NIST time",set my watch to it and go about my day until I change watches.
    At this point I google NIST again,set the next watch . And so on and so forth.

    I just checked it out and went for it. It's got features I wish Toolwatch had. Thanks!
