    I agree with Tony.

    I suggest you change out the battery, if possible, as a weak battery will cause all sorts of odd issues.  Rechargeable batteries become fatigued over many cycles.   "Full" doesn't mean that the battery has as much charge as a new battery, it means that the current battery has accepted as much charge as it is going to take.  That simply might not be enough.  Swap it out.

    I'm not familiar with the program you mentioned, this NPT client. As to battery condition, the watch is 5 or 6 years old, and the charge indicator on the watch face shows fully charged. A few minutes ago,I shot lower limb moon and Venus. Probably not such a good shot,as the horizon for moon shot was very dark. Post shooting, a time check showed the watch to be 5 seconds fast. I can enter watch error easily enough, but the extra step is a nuisance, running a time check that is, which is what I might have to do. Thanks for the NPT client reference.
