    The seconds do add up, yes! The Seiko 7S26 is frequently off by a few minutes, or more, if I am not tending it. For remote meetings and at-keyboard work, I am usually checking system time, derived from a time server. Any next watch will definitely have the atomic clock sync.

    I used to wear a Casio WVA-320J -- solar powered, syncs to atomic clock radio transmission. It took a bad fall.

    I now wear a Seiko 7S26 -- it is mechanical, not solar, and somewhat lossy in its timekeeping, lacking the atomic sync. I haven't worn it in ~3 days and it has stopped.

    I used to have a Suunto for heart rate, FitBit for steps, higher complexity digital watches, and so on, but I increasingly favor a simple device for clean aesthetics, no batteries, and the sync feature.
