    Watch regulation with iPhone app? ...

    I seem to remember a couple iPhone apps that would tell you the rate of your watch via I guess sound?

    Did anyone find them to be accurate enough to be useful? Did one or two stand out above the others?

    Getting ready to regulate a Seiko SRP777.

    Thanks!
    Chris

    Not sure about regulation, but I find the Watchville iPhone app very useful for setting my mechanicals. In a manual sort of way, it could be used to measure the accuracy of a watch, but would possibly take some time.

    I use watchtracker. Works well enough for me.

    Look up Timegrapher for iOS.
    Great app that gives you Average Rare (sec/day), Beat Error, Amplitude, automatic determination of beat rate.
    You just need an iOS device with a mic, but you really should be using the mic from your earbud set.

    I use hairspring and have had good results in a quiet setting when using an external mic
