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

Great tool!! I love this app!!

I have loved this app at my fingertips as a coach for the past 4 years!!! The only thing I’d improve is being able to see 4-6 lanes AT ONCE (so make the rows half as wide). I like to duplicate the splits every other wall so that I have both 50’s and 100’s splits. I can get 3 swimmers in a heat but once I have to scroll up and down for 3+ swimmers per heat, it gets muddled (I lose track). Otherwise, this is a fantastic tool!!!

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.

So much potential!

This is set up to be the perfect app with just a few fixes. The stopwatch carryovers are buggy as heck and sometimes the clock is running but the stop / clear button doesn’t change resulting in Random Timing Events (RTE). There needs to be quicker access to the events list without having to click twice to get in and out. When kids come to me after their event, I need to be able to quickly look back at their splits and get the times of the current swimmers.

We need to be able to clear the swimmer names and times separately if an RTE happens. We need to be able to set up heat pages within the event to snap between lane set ups.
