 -v, --version  output version information and exit

Options

-d, --differences [permanent]
  Highlight the differences between successive updates.  
  Option will read optional argument that changes highlight to be permanent, allowing to see what has changed at least once since first iteration.

-n, --interval seconds
  Specify update interval.  
  The command will not allow quicker than 0.1 second interval, in which the smaller values are converted.

-p, --precise
  Make watch attempt to run command every interval seconds. 
  Try it with ntptime and notice how the fractional seconds stays (nearly) the same, as opposed to normal mode where they continuously increase.

-t, --no-title
  Turn off the header showing the interval, command, and current time at the top of the display, as well as the following blank line.

-b, --beep
  Beep if command has a non-zero exit.

-e, --errexit
  Freeze updates on command error, and exit after a key press.

-g, --chgexit
  Exit when the output of command changes.

-c, --color
  Interpret ANSI color sequences.

-x, --exec
  command is given to sh -c which means that you may need to use extra quoting to get the desired effect.
  This with the --exec option, which passes the command to exec(2) instead.

-h, --help
  Display help text and exit.

-v, --version
  Display version information and exit.
