    If you own an Apple Watch, you will have the most accurate watch in the room on New Years according to Apple VP Kevin Lynch. Lynch recently sat down with Mashable for an interview and provided tons of details on how the company makes sure time is the most accurate on their wearable devices. With Apple’s attention to detail and complicated system services, satellites, and more, the Apple Watch is apparently one of the most accurate around the world.

    According to Lynch, there are many reasons as to why the Apple Watch is one of the best in the world.

    • Each building connects to GPS satellites that gather time info from the U.S. Naval Observatory
    • A user's iPhone connects to the servers, which then sends time data to the watch
    • Unique hardware in the Apple Watch makes it four times more accurate at telling time than the iPhone
    • The Apple Watch also compensates for delays in sending data
    • In testing, Apple uses high-speed cameras that look for latency in a watch face's second hand
    Lynch noted in the interview,
    With New Year's coming, those who have the Apple Watch will be the most accurate watch in the room.
