Question about Palm Tungsten E2 Handheld
A few weeks out of the box, clock started drifting by large amounts of time (5-10 minutes per day) until it's hours off the correct time. Tried hard and soft reboots, reloaded software multiple times. Contacted Palm who would only recommend off the shelf solutions that in all cases did not address this problem. Gave up and unit is sitting in it's box, abandoned.
Nothing they did and nothing you did will fix it. They timer inside is imperfect and will never stabilize. Mine didn't either. Used my phone for my watch

Standard-quality resonators of this type are warranted to have a long-term accuracy of about 6 parts per million at 31 degrees C (87.8 F): that is, a typical quartz wristwatch will gain or lose 15 seconds per 30 days (within a normal temperature range of 5 deg C / 41 F to 35 deg C / 95 F) or less than a half second clock drift per day when worn near the body.
If a quartz wristwatch is "rated" by measuring its timekeeping characteristics against an atomic clock's time broadcast, to determine how much time the watch gains or loses per day, and adjustments are made to the circuitry to "regulate" the timekeeping, then the corrected time will easily be accurate within 10 seconds per year. This is more than adequate to perform celestial navigation.
Assuming that you have a computer with internet-synced time and good internet, meaning around 1/100 second accuracy, why not compare the watch to the computer over the space of a week?
