Not perfect, but very, very good Seriously, developer deserves major kudos here. For less than 1/100 the cost of the cheapest hardware timegrapher, you're getting a capable, tweakable timing machine that absolutely nails the rates of most any mech watch you can throw at it. I've timed several Seikos, some Chinese "mall watch" throwaways, and several Swiss ETA's with this app, and it works like a charm. Needs some tweaking, and yes, the ability to read will come in handy. But for what you get, this app is a steal at 10x the price.
Poor setup and UI... Since one of the key purposes of this app is regulating automatic watches, why doesn't it either come preconfigured that way or offer a one click config? Instead it makes the user change about eight different settings, and even then it's really kind of a piss poor interface with no proper instructions. Needs a lot of work to make it user friendly.
Love the app! It has a little bit of a learning curve, but once you get it, is so easy to use. Managed to get my cheapo 15$ automatic to beat at +3 sec a day. Will be using this app for all my watches from now on. Thanks for making this available!!! :)
Great app! I was able to regulate a few watches (including some cheap know-offs) to within a few seconds per day. I would love if you could also include a feature to detect beat errors - it seems like everything is almost already there to do that.
A powerful piece of software which must have taken a long time to write but WAY too complex for most users. I guess many buyers will use it to regulate a mechanical watch from time to time (a couple of times per year) so there ought to be a "watch regulation mode" that hides away most of the guff and options that aren't needed. I've got a degree in physics and work in tech so should be OK with this, but gave up using it to regulate a watch after an hour or so of twiddling around.
I am aware this is not a watch regulating app but as many of those who downloaded it that was my intended purpose, however couldn't pick up the sound of my watch and it's a miyota no Rolex so it tics but not very loud, only my frustration at the end of recordings
