I'm making a stopwatch that will measure time between two points.
I want that stopwatch to have a millisecond accuracy.
After the start when someone touch the pad it will show like the time of the touch (15.359) 15 seconds and 359 millis.
I have an arduino uno board. Everywhere I read it says that millis its not reliable, and in a feel tests it seems not very accurate. Also a lot of places say to use a RTC, but every RTC I found and read about it seem to use only second and not milliseconds. Others say to use a 32 KHz crystal, but I'm not sure if it will fix this. Could anyone give some ideas?
The Arduino will only record time, only that, start and get time and subtract and write on the serial and end.
Thanks! update 1: thanks Mattia for the edit.
update2 : I was making some math, and if the device is on for 8 hours, and i want millisecond precision i need something like 30ppb right? Would this do the job? http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/abracon-llc/AOCJYR-12.800MHZ-M5649LF/535-12624-1-ND/4989030
