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.
Very simple but useful timer app for building custom training routines. Worth the money!
Works amazing and love using it! Wish there was Apple Watch app
I was trying to do my workouts with my timer on my phone. Disaster. I had to move the phone from floor to desk so I could see it. The screen would go black. Ugh. This app changed everything. My workouts are efficient now and I can focus on what I'm doing instead of the timer. The countdown is great! Also, it's super simple to program from week to week which I thoroughly appreciate!
My go to app for interval training, very reliable. Does stop playing the cues when you get a phone call or use Siri but it's bearable. Only wish that they made an app for Apple Watch.
Great for my workouts, love it!
Easy to use and does exactly what you need it to do
Great app used others this is the best.
Use this a lot and love it!
This is great to use for those who looooooovvvveee circuit training. It's been a fantastic addition to my workout. It's way easier than using the timer on my phone.
I can't imagine using another timer. This is by far and away the best one out there! Highly recommend it!
Seconds is an invaluable tool in teaching middle school physical education. We are able to create and share, timers, circuits and other workouts with all of our colleagues. When using seconds, I can set up the activity and not worry about the clock or stop watch. This allows me to give the students more individualized attention and instruction.
