    I have a question about the chronograph stop watch. I know the orange hand is for the stop watch and the bottom "clock" is for the seconds' function, but the top clock does not reflect the stop watch settings I set. I set it to a 60 second stopwatch, but on the watch face it shows as 30 seconds. If I select 30 seconds, it changes the clock to 15 seconds. Is this normal behavior?

    The large orange hand is stopwatch seconds and the top dial is for stopwatch minutes. The lower dial is for the main watch seconds (independent of the stopwatch).

    Yes, but the stopwatch dial doesn't seem to correspond to the preference I customized. It shows a 30 second watchface when I select a 60, a 15 if I select a 30, etc. the stopwatch functions normally when selected but the dial on the watchface is not correct. Is this normal?

    It appears that it is simply scaling the minutes dial proportionally to the selected seconds sweep dimension. The minutes dimension counts 30 sweeps of the seconds dimension.

    Okay I am less knowledgable on this than I anticipated. Can you clarify that again? I didn't realize the top face functioned while the stopwatch is in use. So if I select a 60s stopwatch, the face shows 30 at the top and slowly moves clockwise as the stop watch is running. What does the top face measure as the stop watch hits 30s, 60s?

    We didn't need to drink coffee to figure UI out while Steve Jobs was alive.
