    Re: recommendations for wristwatch "inexpensive"

     The time seting pages refer to Figure 11 in the opening pages, which
    appears to show "15" as the seconds count in the smaller line. I didn't read
    through the whole thing carefully to see if that mode is available all the
    time, or only in the "setting" mode. the latter would seem ridiculous but
    then again, I've seen a lot of bad computer programs and a Vector is after
    only only a dedicated computer.
     On most digital watches, if you hack the seconds when they read 0-29, the
    minute count does not change. But if you hack the seconds to zero when the
    watch is displaying 30-59, they usually hack to zero AND set the minutes
    ahead to the next minute. There's no law mandating this, but that's the
    hacking behavior I've seen on most of the digitals I have. Dunno which the
    Vector does.
