How can we improve Watches?

  1. Make teams able to be custom ordered

    Make the Teams with athletes able to be ordered by other than their name. When I’m timing, it’s helpful to order them by projected time so each person is right on top. Is it possible to start a race without having to reorder people every time?

  3. Use volume buttons when screen is off

    Is it possible to use the volume buttons to take laps while my screen is turned off? I use this app in an unconventional way (concert production) and I need to be able to take song timings ("laps") when it isn't appropriate for my phone to be on.

  5. Time a youth swim meet takes 24 parents 3 to each lane with stop watches

    Include a 10 keypad that would stop each lane and order it’s finish i.e. a swimming meet I think I could time most races by myself or greatly reduce the number of people required thanks Lon

  6. Longest time wins

    I know generally this is for races where quickest time would win.
    But I’d also like to use this in training to record fitness levels. E.g. who can skip for the longest time.
    It would be great to have an option of saying wether the quickest time wins (would count to PB) or the longest time wins.

  7. PBs in Race Report

    Hi Hugh, would it be possible in the final race report to show each runner's race time and their PB for the same type of race i.e. 5Km. I know the data will be available under each runner's details/history but having it all in one place would be very useful.
    thanks

    Maybe I’m not understanding, but you can do just that now. The reports’ settings are separate from the Watches’, but you should be able to set the report to split, cumulative, or both.
    Menu>Settings>Report Settings>Lap Display>Splits

  10. Separate out a runner from a group during a race

    Hi Hugh - another one:
    I have a group of athletes running in one race, interval (all lap) setting. One runner can’t follow any more and change to a slower program. I still would like to use the all start function….Would be ideal if I could take the slower runner out of this race in to his own without loosing his history.
    Maybe by dragging the stopwatch into a corner... don't know.

    Best,
    Stephan

  11. Swipe from group to group

    Hi Hugh, this is my favourate stopwatch thanks.
    Coming back to what I proposed under „all lap“, an additional feature could be that it is possible to switch from the stopwatches of one group to the stopwatches of another group by swiping horizontally and stop/lap separately.
    This adds minimal complexity to the user...no idea what it means for programming.

  12. All lap

    Add “All lap”
    Scenario: several athletes in a interval training. They start the same time, you “lap” individually then all start again at the same time (all lap), then you “lap” individually, start again “all lap”

  13. Preloaded races and runners?

    Nice app! Either I'm having trouble learning this app or it's missing a feature for me. I would really like to be able to have all of my runners loaded into their races and then just switch between races. Let's say once the 1600 is done I change the race type to 400 and all of my runner's watches are loaded and ready to start. Track meets move too fast for me to go to a group, tap add all watches, tap new race, and change race type.

    So, the “race type” is just an attribute of a race, not a way to create a new race.

    Instead, to get ready, you would go to the Group of runners, and hit “New Watches for this team”. Then specify “New Race” instead of “Add Watches”. This will create a separate race with that group. Set the race type and/or name, then do those steps again for the second race, etc.

    Then day of race, just go to the History tab, select the first race, tap on the title, and hit “Make Current Race”. After the race, do the same for the second.

    You can switch between races with “Make Current Race” as often as you wish. In fact, you can even track two (presumably long) races at once, as running watches will continue when the race isn’t “current”.

    FYI, I’ve implemented something to make this easier. Would you…

  17. Hi, thanks for this great timing app!

    For road cycling time trials it would be useful to be able to add time between categories. For example, all cat 1/2 ladies start on 1 min stagger but when categories switch over to cat 1/2 men there is typically a gap left (anywhere from 2 mins to 10 mins)

  18. Volume Button for stopping active stopwatch only

    Right now if I accidentally press the volume button it starts all the watch,
    When I only need those buttons to stop current watch
    A means to customize the shortcuts for buttons would be great

  19. Could really use a cumulative team time

    I would love to have the function to calculate the total time and average time of all runners. I coach team sports and focus on team improvement. I've been searching for months and cannot find an app to allow me to do that and get instant feedback of a team time.

  20. Voice recognition?

    Long race like 10,000 m - with many athletes on the track. Lap counting. I want to keep my eyes on the track and also hit lap splits. They all have hip numbers. Please add voice recognition. If I say "ten" into the phone then competitor number 10 just went by. Can you add voice recognition? Would be very effective to keep count of laps.

    Interesting idea. I’ve tried some experiments. Initial thoughts: constant voice recognition is not allowed, so it has to be with a button press. There’s also the problem that voice recognition is not 100% reliable, and asking for immediate feedback kind of defeats the purpose.

    What I’m thinking is to maybe tie it to the volume buttons. As now, press up for a lap, and down for a stop. But if you hold it down, then it will listen for a name or number. Then if it recognizes it, great; otherwise it remembers the voice and when reviewing the unassigned laps later, you can play back your own voice to help you assign it.

    Does that sound useful
