A stopwatch that doesn't keep accurate time?
« on: Feb 02, 2008, 06:45 pm »
I just got a new digital stopwatch (Exertech brand), and and after using it in rehearsals for a few days, I realized it doesn't time accurately.  After a run through that seemed unusually short, I checked it against the other 3 stopwatches that I have, and it is 10% slow (it loses 1 second per 10).  I did check all of the other stopwatches against each other, and they all match exactly.

Has anyone else ever had this problem?  It is one of the strangest things I have ever seen...  ???

Have you tried switching out the battery? If it came with a battery in it already and it was "ticking" when you got it, then I wouldn't be surprised if the battery was running down. If that's not the case, then I have no idea what would be wrong with it.

It has a new battery, so no luck on that...  I am working on a show with ghosts in it, so maybe taht is the problem...  :)
