Question about alarm manager and widgets.

Hey,

I have designed a stop watch app and have a widget paired along with it. Currently, the way it is set up. I use an alarm manager to refresh the HH:MM:SS on the UI until the user stops and then the alarm is canceled. Unfortunetly if I try to update the alarm manager any faster than 1 second, the buttons on my widget become unresponsive. I know it can be done because there is a widget that times to the hundreth of a second. So I was wondering if any of you had some suggestions of what I could look into to fix the issue. Thanks a bunch.
