With digital there is no reason to stick to 12hr.

My microwave is on 24-hour.

With all due respect, I disagree.

In Australia we use AM/PM, so 12H makes sense to me.

We will have to see what the polls show! 馃搳

Thanks for weighing in 馃檹

Nice! There you go, a solid vote 馃榿馃憣

24 hours for me.

For those that have a hard time converting.

+2 or -2

17th - 2 = 15 = 5pm

5pm + 2 = 7 = 17th.

For weirdos like me that don't do DST (normal time in daylight savings months) is +1 or -1.

DST 17th - 1 = 16 = 6pm.

DST 6pm + 1 = 7 = 17th.

24 hours for me. When I see 9:24 on a watch, I will always think 9:24 am, which is what it looks like to me. I don鈥檛 want to go looking for the am/pm indicator every time

24-hour format is normal anyway here in Europe.

even though im european and i grew up with and am constantly reading the time in 24h format, I have my digitals on 12h. I don't see the point. I dont need 24h format to be able to tell if its morining or evening 馃槃 also when speaking we mostly say the time in 12h so idk...

In Canada we use 12hr, but I still find 24hr makes more sense in a digital form.

This is an amazing way of looking at it. 馃憣

Thanks so much for this simplified breakdown! 馃檹

Interesting! It seems like each country tends to have their own norm. Thanks for weighing in! 馃檹

Great point! It鈥檚 really intriguing to hear from someone who has gone against the grain of their countries norms!
