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.
Him writing this review as sweat drops down my face, and this is hands down the best timer app I've ever used for workouts. The only thing you have to worry about is making it burn, seconds takes care of the rest!
The custom timer is awesome. I've used so many timers and none of the suited my needs exactly except this one. It's well worth the price. The only addition I would like to see added is support for Apple Watch.
This is perfect for workout intervals! Easy to use!
Taken my training to next level. Use both in gym and out hiit training. Highly recommended.
I use SP for interval training, stretching, abs, and circuit training. I love that you can change the exercise name to whatever you want. If you want to encourage yourself you can have the "exercise " labeled as Good Job Keep it up. I recommend this to everyone!
This is by far the best app I have found for timing various types of workouts. Great for circuits, intervals, EMOM, you make it and this timer can do it.
Easy to use. Just what I needed to supplement my daily exercise routines.
Intuitively simple, totally dependable, infinitely flexible - a perfect app, period.
Best training aid, easy to set
Very useful!!! Use it everyday!
I use this app almost daily for my rock climbing workouts. From hangboarding to core workouts this app is an invaluable tool in my strength building.
Does everything I need. I have created several complicated interval timers and had no problems.
