.Beat Swatch® Internet Time Wiki

Right now in your local timezone—GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)—it's Thursday, August 5th 2021 at 11:46 PM.

Translated to Swatch® .Beats time, right now it's 2021-08-06 at precisely:


Unlike your local time, its 2021-08-06@32.34 all over the world right now. There are no confusing time zones ordaylight savings time shifts to worry about.

There are exactly 1,000 .Beats in a day, making each .Beat precisely 1 minute and 26.4 seconds long.

If you'd like to know how many .Beats are in a year, just multiply 365 days by 1,000 beats/day to get 365,000 .Beats. Good luck figuring out how many seconds are in a year in your head.

If you'd like to meet somebody at @32.34 who doesn't know about .Beats yet, you can link them to beats.wiki/32.34 so they can see when @32.34 is in their local time.

You can also link them to a precise day and time, like for a meeting:

If you'd like to know more about .Beats, check out the official Swatch Internet Time page and the Wikipedia page for Swatch Internet Time. There's also a podcast about this system that I'm having trouble tracking down. I thought it was by Reply All but I'm not seeing it there. If you find a podcast explaining internet time please lemme know @cgenco and I'll add it to this page!
