Hi all, as some of you may be familiar, high end Citizen watches in many locations in the world, sync their time via a radio tower to have perfect atomic time.
In Japan, China, Europe and the United States, there's a tower available, this probably covers 75%-85% of the Citizen watch users with this feature.
However for those of us in, Africa, South America, Russia, India, Australia and New Zealand (perhaps others?), we're left without this function because our watch population is too small to warrant a tower just for us.
There is another way though, to get your watch synced to Atomic time (or very close), it's called a JJY Simulator.
This is very clever, and I'll post everything I know at the moment, updating this OP when I learn more from others.
An iOS application is available by the developer NeoCat called "JJY Simulator". It's been on the App Store since late February 2014.
What it does is very simple. It will transmit a radio frequency to your watch with the time on your iOS Device. To do this its recommended you use headphones, press the button on the app, put your watch into receive mode (manual), then hold the headphones to the watch and wait for it to receive the signal.
I downloaded the app, translated the text from Japanese to English, to understand the instructions and tried to do so, with no avail. I've read of others having more success.
One problem I foresee, is this is potentially only viable for a watch from Japan, meaning it transmits the same signal as the Japanese tower only. However my understanding was that all of these watches can receive signals from all of the towers, but I could be mistaken, my watch for example is from Italy, so perhaps I need a European signal for it to work?
Here's the developer's page including an iOS link, and a YouTube video proving that the app works, with an iPhone using headphones to a radio desk clock. JJY Simulator
If there's more information that I'm missing, possibly other apps (especially an Android one) or your tales of success, please post below (preferably with your watch and iDevice used).
