Atomic meltdown?

Post by mattcantwin » Sun Nov 01, 2015 7:46 am

My G-Shock did not correct for Daylight Saving.


Pretty sure it has in the past.


How come?

A lot of things could have happened. Did you see the "rcvd" icon? If not it could be due to the weather, interference, etc. Or you may not have the daylight saving option on auto.

You also could have inadvertently shifted the dst function to manual

I have the same and it didn't change either. Probably DST setting but am siting it by the window tonight to see if it switched time

Doesn't look like yours synced, Matt. Usually there's an icon on the "home" screen when it successfully synced the night before.

Sorry guys. Govt cutbacks. It's in that new 2 year budget deal between Congress and POTUS. Horologists/WIS's are just not a big voting block. Suck it up boys.

Maybe Hillary will hook you back up later.

I'm sure it's not the watch or the user. That could mean only one thing...Armageddon!

My wife's updated, mine seems to always take a day or two. Wouldn't sweat it.

I think I am too far north. Neither of the atomic g's I own ever receive the satellite.

Both of mine synced and changed just fine.

For me it's weather and position dependent. Sometimes they synch, sometimes they don't :)

But I set my G's for a manual change to / from DST.
