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.
Easily customizable, unlike seven which was why I switched to this, helps you systematize working out so you know your workout is consistently x minutes, for the specific exercises that benefit you. So you get your exercise and feel confident about it and move on with the rest of your life.
Works great for my stretching exercises !!
Like the customization timer.
Can't go wrong.
Very easy to use and great for any workout!
Easy to use. Counts down time. If that's what you want. Get it. If it's not what you want. Why are you looking at the reviews?
Same basic design for years and it's never had a hitch
I use this all the time when exercising to time walking intervals and stretching. I am sure it would be very useful for many other tasks. I like the ability to customize.
Love this interval app. Works great, easy to use.
The second timer give me many options for rounds (boxing, circuit, HIIT, TABATA - which was new to me). I even changed "exercise one" to "side plank and diagonal push-ups" and Seconds pronounced those words correctly. We do have to teach it Japanese (for karate) hahaha!
Excellent for all types of circuit, HiiT, Tabata or interval training. Worth every penny.
