Seconds is an extremely popular, and highly versatile interval timer app for High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Tabata and circuit training workouts.
Download Seconds for free on iOS or Android and try all it's features. A one time in-app purchase for the Seconds Pro upgrade will allow you to save your timers rather than recreating them each time.
Seconds comes with templates for common interval programming allowing to build advanced timers in a matter of moments.
If the templates do not fit your needs you can use the custom timer to build your timer one interval at a time. You can even combine and loop through many timers using the compound timer.
Often when working out you just want to keep your phone in your pocket and get on with it. But if you are doing a circuit involving many intervals how do you remember what's next?
Seconds will speak your interval names, so this is never a problem. There is even an option to let you know what the next interval is so you have time to prepare before it starts.
If you are looking for a mediation or yoga timer text-to-speech or high pitch beeps may not be appropriate. For situations like these Seconds comes with more soothing alerts such as bells and gongs, or you may wish to have no alert sounds at all, or just a vibration. All these options are available.
Seconds provides plenty of options for how you listen to your music while you workout. A few options include:
Of course, if none of those suit you, you can simply listen to your favourite music player in the background and Seconds will play it's alerts over the top.
Importing and exporting timers from Seconds Pro could not be simpler. Just select the timers you wish to share and hit Export. Timers can be sent via email or AirDrop (on iOS devices).
Timers can even be shared with friends that don't have the app via the web sharing function. Once shared, an online timer will be created for anyone to use on any device.
Seconds Interval Timer will continue to alert you of interval changes whether in the background or the foreground.
Colored intervals are great when you just need a visual clue to see which interval you are on and what is coming up next. Seconds displays the the whole screen in the current intervals color, apart from the next interval which uses it's own color.
Seconds has 10 colors to choose from with an advanced option to customize the colors if you wish.
Seconds utilises all the available width for the main timer display so it's easy to read at a glance. By default it displays the interval time remaining, but can be configured to show total time remaining, or elapsed times.
None of the fancy gloss. All about having all the needed features of a flexible timer.
Fantastic app for circuit training. Easy and quick to set up. Definitely recommend 😄
Hard to imagine a better app for logging complex lifting routines
addition of start on top right makes editing quicker👍
Great job to the developers!
I really love this app. I very rarely leave ratings let alone reviews. It’s worthwhile watching the video tutorial because this app is complex (in the best possible way).
A simple, easy to use and flexible custom timer that I use all the time. I love the text to speech to let me know what activity is coming up with a countdown timer of 3-2-1 as a lead in.
The voice over alert for half way is very useful too. However, I’d like to have the ability to set alerts at other custom times eg in an activity of 20 mins I’d like to have more alerts than just one at the 20 minute mark.
I also agree that there is not enough ‘ducking’ of the music that’s playing when a voiceover alert comes on, particularly when playing through my watch. Setting the audio level of both independently or allow setting of a custom ducking level would be welcome.
The new one is quite unsettling and creepy.
I use this app for every workout. I love being able to see my improvements over time on the app. If I could give one suggestion it would be to have a notes section where you can record intricate details that you just can’t program into the app
All good now! Thanks
I’ve been using this app for a few months and I LOVE IT! Great app!
I use this app for my timers for all of my workouts. I do two different core workouts one on odd days the other on even, a stretching routine, a cardio workout and a strength circuit. After programming the timers I just start my music, start the timer and go, much better than the stop watch. I can even share timers with friends. Great app, just what I needed.
