“It’s New Year’s Eve and the countdown has begun. Yet you are vaguely aware that the count on TV, your DVR clock and even those people counting the seconds around you are ever-so-slightly off,” Lance Ulanoff reports for Mashable. “Does anyone really know exactly when 2015 ends and 2016 begins? If you ask Apple VP of Technology Kevin Lynch, he’ll tell you your Apple Watch does.”

“‘With New Year’s coming, those who have the Apple Watch will be the most accurate watch in the room… There will be no question about when New Year’s Eve actually is now,’ said Lynch, who is widely regarded as one of the chief architects of Apple’s $1 billion-dollar-selling Apple Watch,” Ulanoff reports. “In an exclusive discussion with Mashable, Lynch explained that not only is the Apple Watch extraordinarily accurate, but take any two Apple Watches and hold them side-by-side and you will see the second hands moving in perfect unison.”

“That kind of claimed accuracy does not come by accident. Lynch described a complex system that runs from deep inside the nearly year-old wearable technology to, quite literally, space,” Ulanoff reports. “Lynch actually told us that ‘as a piece of hardware, [Apple Watch is] far more accurate as a timekeeping device than the iPhone,’ said Lynch. It’s actually four times better, he noted.”
