Real time clock is actually useless
If you want to see the clock you have to use the mod in power mode. When you are in TC mode you can't see the clock except if you leave your mod unused for a while and then it turns to a full screen analog clock until it goes to power save mode.

What is the point of having a real time clock if it's not visible all the time?

It's about as useful as Flappy Bird...
Reading this sig was pointless

No, the game is more useful than the clock... you can play the game when you want to :P :)

If you use it in stealth mode, the clock becomes more useful. After you fire it the clock comes on when you release the button :)

I didn't think the clock would be useful at all, but have found I actually like it.

I'm waiting for v3, which should have a camera.

You are right but i'm having a hard time already to read this oversized analog clock - i prefer a digital clock instead but it seems there is no way to switch the full screen clock to digital.

Yet another clock to have to reset twice a year. And karasardelis is right, it's difficult to read. Best to turn it off and forget about it IMO -- press and hold the power up and fire buttons for a few seconds and change the screen to 'Off'.

True, but maybe a future update? Wouldn't hurt to ask :)

Also true, I needed another clock like another hole in my head, but I have actually used this clock a few times :D

I do like the idea of a digital clock in stealth mode :)

I pity OCD vapers that grab one of these. I can just imagine them sitting in their car trying to get their phone, car clock, stereo and now their mod times all to match to the second. By the time they get it right it'll be time to start all over.

I have new for you my friend... our phones sync with our local provider automatically and my Smartwatch syncs it's time with my phone. My car stereo also syncs with my phone when it's connected. My PC also syncs it's time with a time server. Well, i now have to sync the time on my mod twice a year with one of the above devices... Next version will also have bluetooth and will sync with our phones probably to solve this big problem (and give us vape statistics) ;)

You like to whine, don't you? Admit it... :P

Fili mou, my car, stereo and mods don't sync with anything. That's why I've been sitting in my car since March 27th. I think you missed the humour :p
