Beat/2 is Swatch Beat, Internet Time Indicator.

What is this new Universal Time?

Timed by Swatch:

Internet Time represents a completely new global concept of time. So what is the deal? Basically, the Swatch Beat, the revolutionary new unit of time means the following:

  • No Time Zones
  • No Geographical Borders

How long is a Swatch beat? In short we have divided up the virtual and real day into 1000 "beats". One Swatch beat is the equivalent of 1 minute 26.4 seconds.

Usage:

  • Time Zone: Time zone is based on GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).
  • Interval: You can set interval to change normal time and beat. Note: Interval: 0.01-0.05 beat 0.01 beat = 0.86sec.
  • Only Beat: Check "Only Beat" check box, if you want to indicate only beat time.
  • Always on Top: Check "Always on Top" check box, if you want to stay Beat/2 at top of the desktop.
  • Auto Font Size: Check "Auto Font Size" check box, if you want to automatically resize font size according to the window size.
