I am using GetDate() as a default in a table item

Strangely it seems to round the time down to the minute..

ie

2006-10-24 20:53:00
 
How do I get it to accurately state seconds?

Probably the field is smalldatetime. Change to datetime and done.

use datetime instead of smalldatetime

select cast(getdate() as smalldatetime),getdate()

result:
2006-10-24 17:04:00         2006-10-24 17:04:10.217

If the column is defined as "smalldatetime" then the accuracy will only be to minutes.  You need a data type of "datetime" to get seconds and milliseconds.
