Default Internal Clock how accurate is yours?

Woke up at 5:44 a.m. three days in a row. Yesterday, I hurt my back and my clock let me sleep for an extra 2 minutes.

Mine used to be +/- 3 mins or so.

My one year old's is within 30s best I can tell - he wakes up at 6:38 every single day. I shit you not.

My alarm is set for 4:30am. It rarely goes off, I'm usually up between 4:25-4:28.

Flippin amazing isn't it. By the 3rd day and being somewhat superstitious I started thinking what is the significance of this 5:44 . Not a lotto guy but maybe I should play those #'s ?

Mornings I don’t have an alarm set. Wake up at 5:30-6:00 every day no matter what.

only alarm I have is one telling me to put my nighttime games or Netflix show down and go to bed. I have a tendency to lose track of time at night and it’s nothing for me to look at the clock and see its 4am. If I go to sleep I’ll still wake up at 6 but I feel like poo all day.

Mine is spot on. Mine even starts to auto adjust a week before the clocks change in the spring.

Haven't set an alarm clock in 10 years or so. Wake up most mornings between 5-5:30, especially in the summer with the early sunrise. Some times I sleep in until 6 AM or so. It was probably a late night for me. Most nights in bed by 10 PM. Not necessarily sleeping but down for the day.

It's a Circadian Rhythm and everyone's is different, ever changing, and "accurate".

I am up every morning at 5:23-28 and as I am getting older it is really starting to aggravate me. Just one Sunday am it would be nice to keep the lids closed till 7ish. My wife on the other hand has zero internal clock. My dog knows what time chow time is every day she starts yapping at 6:15pm.

Since I retired, mine is only accurate now when I need to be up early to fish or hunt, always wake a few minutes before the alarm, no matter how early it is set. Otherwise, I can “sleep in” until 6:30 or so.

We had a greyhound that was extremely punctual for her whole life for waking up, dinner, and bedtime. She would start to whine and pace within 2 minutes of those events if it didn’t happen on her regular schedule. The semi annual time changes always threw her off a bit, and it would take a couple weeks to adjust her schedule.

I have my alarm set for 5:30 and wake up within 2 mins of it every single morning. I'm also a very light sleeper and wake up a couple times a night to check my phone/time. I don't *have* to be up until 6:15ish, so I'll usually bump it to 6 around 5:29am, but then just lay there for a 15-20 mins until I say F it..

Even on the weekends I'm usually up by 6. And on the heaviest of drinking nights, I'll still be up by 6:15 or 6:30 at the latest. What I wouldn't give to be able to sleep until 7 or 8 am just once..

It was better pre-covid. Used to pop awake right before 5:00AM every day.
I still do but often doze back off until 6:00ish. No need to be in too early as there are only a few people in the facility.
