The Ultimate Stopwatch is a professional timing tool for the iPhone and iPad, providing multiple stopwatches for anyone who has to track a large number of people in a large number of events, especially coaches, trainers, or PE teachers.

Simple to use, but powerful enough to handle a heavy workload.

Track unlimited laps per watch (last 4 to 10 displayed, depending on watch "face" used)

Have your Watches run all the time (independently of whether app is running or not); no power used when watches are not displayed on screen

Complete control
Edit built-in activity list to include whatever sports/events you track
Control each watch separately, or use master start/stop/reset
Choose from 25 different stopwatch formats (iPhone/iPad, bigger/smaller, more/less info shown)
Switch at any time between split/cumulative display, or even both!
Control the fractions of a second to display (tenths, hundreds, thousandths)

Unlimited People
Organize your people into teams, classes, or groups
Report for each person on what their races/times have been across all races
Import people from your contacts, including photos and emails
Track personal best for each kind of race for each person

Flexible Reports

It does it all! Amazing!

While at first it may appear rather ordinary and a little bit odd looking and odd sounding, once you get to know the app, it’s probably the most useful timing program ever! I’ve been running for 30 years and coaching for 25 years and seen and owned all sorts of timing apps and equipment and this little app can do everything! Until I knew its inner workings, it just seemed ordinary. It is far from that! It keeps track of lifetime achievements for all athletes under their profiles, allows for the addition of splits on the fly or split corrections if coach fat-fingers the wrong key. You can add athlete pictures, view performance charts, name each workout, add custom distances for the program to chart your athletes’ performances. I simply cannot rave about it enough. You can start and stop all athletes at once. You can add athletes on the fly during your current timing session. You can have multiple workouts being timed at once.

Coaches, trust me when I say that this is the essential app for tracking our distance runners and is 100 times better than any stopwatch or combination of apps. I use it to time both races and workouts. I coach middle school, high school, college and Masters.

Spend some time getting to know it, mess around with it and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Thank you so much for this app! I’ve been searching for years and finally found one that’s noteworthy!

This is a great app to use when keeping track of a class running laps on the track. As a PE teacher of 13 years I have dotted hands, given out popsicle sticks, and dotted small pieces of scrap paper just to keep track of laps and times. Now I can keep track of splits, email the results straight to my computer and have the run graded before my next period class begins! Big high 5 to the developer of this software!

Great application for multiple races

We recently held an obstacle course race with races starting every half hour. This was excellent for tracking runners as skill levels varies greatly. Adding the runners photo a big plus.

Had a small issue trying to find the correct process for our needs. Sent a message on a Sunday night for help and was pleasantly surprised to receive our answer within minutes!
