Can Your Pump Tell Time?

It seems like every pump I've owned--and I've owned pumps from 3 major brands--cannot keep accurate time. Every few months, it seems like the pump has lost a couple of minutes. I do not drain the batteries or take them out, except for to change them. Perhaps it loses time when the batteries are removed? It doesn't seem to necessarily correlate with that but it would be a good explanation, I suppose. Has anyone else noticed this, not in correlation with changing the batteries? I pretty much assume the time on my pump is always slow.

mine have always lost time... when anyone asks me what time it is I say "it's x:xx diabetic time" - I haven't noticed a battery correlation though...

That's funny!

I was actually just noticing today that mine was behind!

Your so right!
I was getting blood work done this morning and was sitting right in front of a clock, nervously checking the time. I had another appt. @ 9a.m and according to the wall clock, it was 8:40.
When I checked my pump, it said 8:22. I like your battery theory.
