    Off Topic post Where do you synchronize your watch?

    Just wanted to do a little poll on where everyone synchronizes their watches. Whether you're anal about it or not or how much accuracy matters to you or not.. Me personally, I just recently started to synchornize my watch with my computer clock which seems to be "universal" with everything else (cell phone, cable box, etc) so I figured it's a reliable source for synchronizing.

    Time.gov since it gives me the "accurate within 0.2 seconds" thingy. Ive had times where im downloading or uploading a lot and it could be off by multiple seconds. It helps a lot to know that ive got a good connection with the server.

    Re: Where do you synchronize your watch?

    I use the clock on my computer as it's the most convenient. I just want to makes sure its some what close to accurate time and more importantly that none of them have suddenly started gaining or loosing a ton so all that I really care about is having a consistent clock to compare it to.

    Re: Where do you synchronize your watch?

    You could say that I'm fairly picky about watch accuracy...I usually use one of the GPS devices at my work to sync with, or my handheld GPS at home. I have some faith in my computer's clock and the internet time servers, but just choose the GPS as a better reference.

    I use my computer clock since I've downloaded the tweak tool that allows me to adjust the frequency that it syncs with the time servers. I have it sync once a day.

    Re: Where do you synchronize your watch?

    I synch it to my office clock as that is the most important reference for me. The office clock (i.e. the door access system clock) is always set to the gov.time(IST), so I set all my watches 5 minutes ahead of my office time.

    I sync using my atomic G-Shock or my GPS controlled NTP server in my lab...
