    My Teric loses about 1s per day. That seems to be within the specs of 1 minute/month, but never the less, it is irritating. Several of my older computers are much better than that.

    The Teric manual, p58, says:
    The Teric uses a highly accurate quartz crystal for time keeping. Expected drift is about 1 minute per month. If you notice drift, it is easily corrected in the Settings > Watch menu.

    Does this just mean to reset the time, or is there actually a drift correction I am missing?

    better than the liquivision which would be off by a few minutes on a dive ... yet touted as having the most correct crystal for the timing circuits .... (once you calibrate it I assume)

    I'm just under 0.5sec/day. Compared it to iMac clock. What did you use as a comparison base?
