Elegant stopwatch & Workout Companion. Starting pistol, lap controls, & music controls. Ease of use, timed haptics, physical button support, and so much more!

Looking for a workout App that can do it all? Dash Timer is the tool for you and fits right on your wrist! Our easy-to-use design is extremely versatile and allows you to get the most out of your workouts. Runners, track & field athletes, CrossFit athletes, weight lifters, and fans of HIIT workouts will especially enjoy Dash Timer.

IMPORTANT: Rather than being designed for iPhone and then "watered down" for your wrist, Dash Timer was designed exclusively for the Apple Watch. The iPhone version of this application does NOT contain any stopwatch or workout features. For that, an Apple Watch (with WatchOS 5 or later) is REQUIRED. However, your iPhone can be used to review Apple Watch instructions and to store workout information from your Apple Watch in your Activity and Health apps.

The following applies to Dash Timer for Apple Watch:

Dash Timer is a stopwatch and workout application elegantly combined into one robust and easy-to-use package. The full-screen stopwatch is easy to see and effortless to control. Simple touch controls, intuitive swipe gestures, and the lack of small buttons speak to the fact that this stopwatch is designed to be used during intense physical activity.

From the stopwatch screen, you can also monitor your heart rate, control your music, and toggle the workout screen. Before starting your workout, you can swipe up on the workout screen to select between an outdoor run, a track & field workout, a strength training session, or something else. Once a workout has been initiated, workout metrics can be toggled and customized to your liking. Dash Timer can display your total duration, distance traveled, time for your current mile/kilometer, and previous mile/kilometer split. It can also show your current pace, average pace, and pace for your current mile/kilometer. Current heart rate, average heart rate, bpm range, and calories burned are also available. Finally, if you are on an outdoor run, you also have access to lap controls. Keep track of lap time, lap distance, lap mile/km pace, and your previous lap's split with ease. ALL of this data is stored forever in the Activity and Health apps on your iPhone.

Dash Timer is also full of extra features. As previously mentioned, music controls are available from the stopwatch screen. However, you can force-touch your Apple Watch at any time to access much more:

Command Starts - Want to practice block starts? Don't have access to starting the stopwatch from your current position? Allow Dash Timer to give you a "SET" command followed by the sound of a starting pistol. It will then automatically start the stopwatch for you. You're welcome.

Timed Haptics - Dash Timer can also be set to give you sound/haptic feedback at set intervals while the stopwatch is running. Keep track of time without even looking at your watch! Track & Field athletes can use this to make sure they are staying on pace during an interval. Weight lifters can use this to time their rest intervals, sets, or even individual reps. Those participating in a HIT workout can use timed haptics to keep track of when they should change activities. Crossfit users can use timed haptics for EMOM workouts. Sometimes, it just isn't convenient to look at your watch while working out. See how timed haptics may be helpful for you.

Customizable Settings - Change the look of your stopwatch, your workout type, units of measurement and more. You can even enable physical button support or auto-laps for workouts.

REMINDER: An Apple Watch (with WatchOS 5 or later) is REQUIRED for the intended use of this app.

Highly Recommend!

This app finally brings all of the features I expect from a GPS stopwatch. First off, I’ve tried many alternatives and haven’t found an Apple Watch app that makes taking splits a good and normal experience. This app makes it as easy as a stopwatch - I love how you have the choice between tapping part of the screen, swiping up, or using the physical buttons (my preference) to take a split at any time. In my opinion as a cross country/track runner, this is a must-have for a stopwatch to be able to track various workout splits and I was very frustrated with many other apps not even having the ability to take splits.

Beyond that, the app is very reliable, easy to use, customizable, you don’t need to carry your phone for it to work, and it saves all the data well to Apple Health. I haven’t seen any other app that has all of these things in one. On top of that, it is really built for a competitive runner and has some really cool little features such as timed haptics and a “starting pistol”. This is about as good as it gets for an Apple Watch app for competitive runners, and I’m sure there will be even more nice features coming as the app grows!

Amazing App

I am a distance runner in high school. For about a year and a half I used the Nike running feature that watch had given me when I bought it. Unfortunately it wasn’t able to correctly clock in miles or allow me to take splits and no other app was working as well as the Nike one. Dash Timer has done all of those things in the 3 weeks I have used the app, allowing me to know how many miles I have ran during a track workout as well as know my splits for the workout. This is the best app I’ve used for running and highly recommend. Also, after a week of using Dash Timer I broke my school record for the 5k, almost positive that is correlation. I guess you’ll have to try it for yourself!

Honestly the best out there

I’m a cross country runner in high school, so I need to know all of my splits and the normal apple green running man doesn’t always cut it. It’s hard to read and doesn’t have all the features I want. But this app has everything! It has things for sprinters, timed intervals for when I know I need to pick things up, and so much more. I’m not lying, runner to runner, this app is the best one out there.

Dash Timer was made by a serious runner, so we are absolutely thrilled that it is helping you with your XC needs! Thank you so much for the positive review!
