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.
I love this app, however I Went to use it this morning and they took off the speaking option for example. Exercise 1, rest, count down, I had mine programmed for a women to speak and now it’s a beep. I was not happy about that.
I use it daily to help time my workouts and keep me on track. Compound timer is your friend to build up the workouts of varying exercises, groups and sets. Rest and transition times can be easily programmed in. While in the workout, pausing or going back a bit is easy if you run over time for a set. A quick tap does it! Clear text to speech instructions are my fave so I don’t have to keep looking at the phone. Best $$ spent ever!!
Most other fitness trackers are run-oriented. This one is perfect for kettlebell, EMOM, heavy bag intervals and other timers for my style of workouts.
I searched for while looking for a good multi period editable timer and then found Seconds. It does everything I want and more. It looks great, performs great and has many editable features to personalise. Highly recommended.
The latest update is giving me a “0 discounts left. Please upgrade before your trial runs out” warning.
I’ve clicked the warning and it says “fetching” but nothing happens.
Since I purchased the pro version and have years of workouts stored, I’m not certain why I’m getting this warning or how to further upgrade from pro.
I’ve tried to find an email (customer support used to have one in the app), but wasn’t able to, so I’m posting here.
I’m loving everything about this app !! It’s a must have work the money
A really flexible options for creating timers. Does exactly what I need and does it well.
Just a really well set up app. Easy to use, easy to set ups for a variety of activities. I used it for about a month an upgraded to the pro version, and honestly have no regrets.
You can set music for each set of exercises, with rests in between. A really good app. BUT there does not appear to be anywhere to contact the developers and also, there should be a button to press to send on to your friends for them to use it too. Weird.
This app is perfect! I’ve been using it for over 4 years and it has always been adaptable to whatever my evolving workout regime is.
Boxing / MMA timer, or HIIT / tabata, or standard basic time counter which is great depending on my day.
The best part is that you can create a custom compound timer and mix any of the timing options into 1 large timing session.
Have been using the app since the early days when it was first released and I have never been disappointed. It has gotten better with each new release and is still the easiest and most reliable app in its class and I have tried many.
I have tried lots of apps but Seconds Pro is the Best App for 7 Minute Workout. Specially if used on an Apple Watch.
