I just noticed the stock clock is real time with the second hand moving. First of all, it's so small I can hardly see it. Second of all, it's gotta be a battery drainer. Wish there was a way to stop the second hand.

There is no way to stop it, but it has a negligible effect on the battery.

I've put mine in a folder like it was before it's Live reincarnation and iOS 7. Thats one way to stop it. Also i find it pointless having the time showing twice on my home screen.

It is easier to see the time on the app than in the status bar, at least at arms length with my eyes. Still, I've kept the clock app in a folder instead of the home page as it's readily available from Control Center and the time is even more visible from the lockscreen. The camera app is another that won't need a home page spot because of Control Center access. Back on topic, the second hand could be useful for synchronizing watches.

I would have figured that out eventually. Clock no longer taking up space on my home page.
