You may be in macro- but macro=10cm at wide angle, if You zoom in it comes a 40 cm minimum distance- and closer to it everything is (and must be) blurry.

yes to get a decent pics not zoomed i use best shot mode and the macro mode with the little robot in the picutre screen , is there a better mode i should be in that will alow me to take pics with out blurriness , it seems everything i have tried other than waht i explained before turns blurred edges , also i see some say the new firmware helps alot with this camera , do u think it would help me? also what is the best and latest firmware, 1.01? or is there something better?

Measure 20 inches from the end of the lens to the watch and it will focus. That is as close as you can get at full zoom.

By the way- how is Your camera fixed- if it is simply sitting on table You may move it when pushing shutter. If so, then activate the 2 sec. self-shutter- I do so every time I make long expositions without tripod- this lets the camera stabilize before actual shot is made.
