Watch Tracker is a revolutionary new app for tracking the accuracy of a wristwatch. It's dramatically easier and more accurate than any previous method.
Just tap a button when the time on your watch matches the time displayed by the app, and Watch Tracker does the rest. It synchronizes with an atomic clock, measures and records the difference, and displays graphs of all the data points you've recorded.
- Uses best-fit analysis to accurately calculate how many seconds your watch gains or loses per day
- Displays graphs of rates and variance
- Can track multiple watches simultaneously
- Saves data in CSV files that can be opened with any spreadsheet software
Watch Tracker is made by the developer of tChess (the chess app that was featured in Apple's "Learn" commercial for the iPad) and Learn Chess (the Apple Staff Favorite e-book).
Made timing of watch much easier
I have been using this app for the last two weeks to time my new automatic watch. It gives the watch owner all the tools you need in one very well designed app. The fact that it synchs and displays the atomic time makes it so much easier than using a spreadsheet and another app for the atomic time.
The graphs and data screens are very useful and give you a very good idea of how accurate your watch is. It is a good idea to record this information for any new watch so that over time you have a reference of its performance when it was new.
Only suggestions I have is too drop the price down a bit, and also to allow for more than the last ten items on the data point comparison list.
A must have for wristwatch appreciating folks
Watch Tracker is a great little app. I own multiple mechanical watches and Watch Tracker is a great app for discerning the timing rate of each of my watches. No crashes, works well, and is easy to use. The graphs are easy to read, and the variance calculation and rate calculation are great features.
My only suggestion is to add a little color, perhaps bring the Description field up a level such that it is in the watch’s main screen, and maybe an archiving feature for the watches I don’t own/track anymore. These are piddly app addition suggestions because the Watch Tracker’s main functions are flawless.
Solid & informative
Easy to use, allows you to view and interpret information several different ways via graphs. You could do the same thing with pencil and paper but this is far easier and more convenient. I agree with others that more than 10 data points per run would be nice. Overall, I think it works well.
