Swim Stopwatch is an app created for swim coaches by a high school swim coach. The intent is to solve problems associated with timing multiple swimmers/relays in the pool at one time.
Swim Stopwatch's unique and original layout allows a single coach to time all of their swimmers while also freeing them up to focus on the race and not their watch. All you need to do is hit the large button which creates individual split boxes for each split time. You watch the race and hit the button whenever you need a split, then while swimmers are swimming their next leg you take a short moment to drag their split time to the appropriate lane and split number. Swim Stopwatch will calculate the split and cumulative times for you so that you don't have to do any math.
* Universal App - 3 lanes on screen at a time on iPhone, 6 lanes on iPad
Bug Fixes - Crashes in certain situations, button not switching sides on screen rotation, timer carrying over from previous events, a few more minor ones.
Ratings and Reviews
You’ll never go back
I use this app during my masters swim practices. It helps give a visual rather than shouting numbers across the pool. It’s so easy to use, I love the big button so I can watch flip turns and finishes without looking at my device. Multiple lanes, events , labeling, and email support makes for the perfect assistant. Never use a stopwatch again! Swimmeetmaker is also game changing. I believe made by the same developer.
helpful for a coach
This is a great app when timing multiple swimmers in a heat. It calculates the splits well and with the paid version, I can pre-enter all my swimmers and their events ahead of time - I LOVE THAT. And after a meet, I can email the results to my acct - brilliant idea. One thing I don't like is that every time I open the app or switch events the timer is still going. Why doesn't it stop? I have pressed stop at the end of the race and I get the end time of my swimmers races fine; however, the timer just keeps going. So prior to every race I have to reset it, this sometimes fouls me up with timing a race. This app has saved me as a coach! Thanks.
Great, one add
Very useful and coach friendly. One thing to add would be to give the option of allowing the volume buttons to be the start/stop/lap much like a stopwatch.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
