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.
This app keeps me on the straight and narrow which is exactly what need. It helps push me to failure. YES YES YES!
You get what you put into it. In the end, there's no one else to blame/praise except yourself. It's an organized timer for your specialized workouts.
The best feature is that you can add songs to each workout interval and rest period. Amazing app!
I love the countdown timer function. I love the customizable timers. I use the Tabata timer to easily time my sprint days. Great ap, no ads.
This is exactly what I needed to take my cardio to the next level. This makes keeping up with HIIT and circuits a breeze!
This has to be the best app to keep you motivated when working out, ever! It is unique to what I was looking for to keep me on point with various types of workouts. The premium is so worth the money. So much so that my husband bought it for his phone too. A must have to keep you moving at your own pace!
After trying several interval timers, I found this to be the most useful and user friendly.
It's reliable and does not crash in the middle of usage. The free version is great however it doesn't allow for saving settings. In fact, I'm upgrading, it's worth the 4.99!
Love I can listen to my music while lifting!
I previously rated this app five stars. Now I have found it to be even better than I thought it was but I can't improve my score. The heart rate monitor and HealthKit integrations are great additions. I am playing around with the different features such as types of timer and text-to-speech and it is motivating me to train more just to try out all the variations.
Completely customizable, absolutely indispensable for anything a timer may be used for. I use it to keep me on track for daily time management. I set up a repeating alert with a 4second interval in between so I hear a "double chime" to ensure I notice the alert. The fact that I can have a chime at any interval no matter the length is so useful to me. Thank you!
