We created a complex ALGORITHM


Let me try:
newHourAngle = 30*newHour + 30 * newMinutes / 60;
oldHourAngle = 30*oldHour + 30 * oldMinutes / 60;

delta = newHourAngle - oldHourAngle;
if (delta < 30) delta += 360;

moveHourForward = delta <= 180;

// do the same for the minutes

Looks like these guys offer the BEST deal on the watches. If I am reading it correctly, you are getting free shipping, $11 reward points and $30 from the "$300 Monthly Achievement." That is $41 back in store credit!!

....complex for the average magician (like me) who is usually handling rather less complicated items like cards , coins and sponge balls ..

Yeah, I agree, it's would be really complex for Kindergarten math. Multiplications, integer divisions, comparisons.
I appreciate the nice marketing angle, and lots of people here of course can't really understand the real complexity (tip of my hat) of a watch like this, but come'n!
Thanks for the smile. Congrats for the release.

I am a victim.
Love my Turner watch but will Most likely also go for the JM watch.

I am sure it is high quality.

Very close to Hit the button.

Sure! But I found it offensive towards the founding fathers of computer science, that's why I had to comment (I had no intention to offend).
P.S. typing it was the slowest part of it for me. Interesting problem that can be expanded in a job interview question. Smile

The fact that you receive a confirmation that the hands are now in the correct position is a huge plus.

This is so wrong.
You DO NOT receive a confirmation that the hands are in the correct position. You receive a notification that the hands are in the position that you have input on the remote. If you made a mistake there, they are NOT at the position that you wanted.

Plus, I always felt that the T boys tried to imply that you got confirmation that the input was received, but in reality it was only confirmation that it had been SENT. Confirmation for receiving is FAR more important and helpful than being sent.

Really? If you work with a (hidden) remote every day, you know how insidious it can be. Let alone with a remote with 10 buttons. A great opportunity has been missed here. A remote with 4 clear buttons had been more than sufficient and even faster. (people who use inject with a remote will understand).

Having choice in a marketplace is a good problem to have. That we're even having this discussion is a testament to innovation and advancement. Everyone is different and has preferences unique to their wants and needs in a watch that can do what these do. I think this is a win-win for us all. I think what the market really needs is more ambitious card moves. (Kidding.)

Watch magic... It's about time. Smile

You make a very valid and good point. While designing 'The Watch' the creators should have considered this important and useful feature. I agree the opportunity has been missed.

I don't think that is the case though. You get a vibration if the watch has received the packet. What's better is that the new one seems more resilient. But unless you perform in a electromagnetic noisy environment, it should not make a difference.
