Thank you! Just noticed the updated feature to accept unique beat times. Perfect for dealing with the 66-beaters! So pleased I upgraded to "pro". BTW - Reviewer of 13May16 is mistaken and evidently does not know much about his clock.................................(my earlier review from '14...) Nice, but I have a Hermle grandfather movement before me that runs @ 66 bpm (3960 bph). The app does not seem to recognize that rate to sync and calculate against
Adjusted my Seiko 5 using this app. No other voice recording app could identify the very subtle ticks of this time piece but this one. Thumbs up. Drawbacks: 10 sec recording offers lower speed but higher accuracy, however it does not seem to work at all. Also the measurements are not repeatable, if you aim at +- 2 sec / day, and you manage to reach it, don't measure 1 minute later, you will get disappointed. It's either the app or it is just how the mechanical watches work, the expectations are not met. Despite of this money well spent. Don't bother with the free version, it will only show you if the sound is picked up or not, the real value comes after you bought it.
Does the Job but Poor options... Found this app useful to get a clock into beat by examining the distance between each spike in the graph, otherwise does not seem to be able to do much more, at least in the free portion of the app. Would this tempt me to upgrade. I'm afraid not.
Worth it Really works if your watch is not too silent. Of course the quartz movement s show no deviation. My Seiko 7s26 have decentering and +2 minutes a day. As expected.
Awesome! I was able to get several watches timed, one to +3 Seconds/day using this and my phone's mic. Works great! Only drawback is you need the paid version.(and some patience).
I paid for the Pro version. It works on an old mechanical alarm clock (4 bps) as well as several quartz wall clocks I tested (1 Hz). With the mechanical clock I was able to tell that the rate changes depending on how much the clock is wound. Interesting. No luck with watches but that's not surprising--I can barely hear them myself!
