I know quartz vibrates at a known rate as they time watches according to their frequency, whether this directs energy to the human body, well....
The electronics of the watch initially amplifies noise at the crystal frequency. This builds or regenerates into oscillation -- it starts the crystal ringing. The output of the watch crystal oscillator is then converted to pulses suitable for the digital circuits. These divide the crystal's frequency down and then translate it into the proper format for the display.
I wonder what else their used for.
thx for sharing that information Nirvana
It has absolutely no basis in rational science.
