wodtimer_phone_iconWorkouts like Tabata or Crossfit’s Fight Gone Bad and other interval training methods require a time keeper - someone to watch over the time and let the exercisers know when to work and when to rest and when to stop.

Generally speaking, keeping time of the intervals is a pain - especially when doing so yourself.

WODTimer is a dynamic, customizable interval timer that is capable of keeping time of workouts.

From simple timings to complex intervals, WODTimer is full of features for keeping track of workouts which exercisers or fitness professionals alike can take advantage of.

WODTimer features 3 separate timing modes :

  • a simple stopwatch with lap measurements
  • a countdown timer (also with a lap feature)
  • and a fully customizable interval timer for keeping track of work and rest times plus set counts.

The interval timer also has a variety of presets for common or more complex interval workouts.

Exercisers and fitness professionals will appreciate the available audio cues during timings to notify changes between sets, work or rest intervals.

WODTimer also features media player integration to pick playlists from within the application and navigate between songs and avoid accidentally closing the app during an interval workout.

    I really like this timer, but I’d like to have an alarm at the end of a countdown or the end of an interval.

    Thanks for the feedback Robert! This will be fixed in the next upcoming release, among other things. Glad you like it!

    Hey wrote review on app store:
    Really great app and has 6 workouts built in which are Easy to use and start from! Now just needs more workouts! Definitely the most important thing!! :)

    Additional suggestions:
    Add the upcoming excercise in voice as part of countdown..
    Add half way counter in each interval. Ie ”30 seconds left” also through voice
    Add a counter on the last few intervals… Ie ”1 round left to go!” 

    But yes just needs more preset excercises or and the ability to save ones own would be good too.
    Thinking about it you could create a profile thing out of this aswell.. Where the app records the workouts you do and when to create a history if working out.. Up to you

    Basically more presets, and I have friends who feel the same way!
    But great app!

    Hey Max, thanks for the great feedback!
    Definitely agree that some more workouts would be great. I will see what I can do.
    The voice and some other sound notifications are going to be part of the next release.
    Saving presets would be great - we’ll see about that too. Maybe in the future.
    Thanks again and look out for a new version soon!

  5. Jamie,

    Thank you for finally producing an interval timer that we can use without having a giant second hand clock around. I have been doing interval training for some years now and it has always been difficult to find a portable device to accommodate this type of training.

    I love the audible cues and that you can play your music at the same time. My only suggestion is to see if there is a way to lower the volume of the music or increase the volume of the audible cue as it gets drowned out in the music.

    Thanks again for coming out with a great app.

    Thanks for the wonderful comment Peter! Definitely the audio cues need further work. Look out for an update in the New Year! Thanks again!

    Thanks for the great work Jamie & Happy New Year!

    Additional suggestions:

    If playing music with the timer:
    - Automatically lowers the volume of the music during the rest phase, then jack up the music volume again during the work phase, or vice versa.
    - Can pick 2 songs to play; 1 for the work phase & 1 for the rest phase. So, e.g. a heavy metal piece during work phase & a, say, classical piece during rest phase, ..

    Make the visuals look big & apparent e.g. have a big coloured progress bar for each phase; one colour for each phase. Or have a big pie clock counting down with different colours for each phase. This is ’cause if you’re moving too much at a high rate, sometimes it’s hard to read the display properly so clear visual cues will help.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the great feedback Sing! Being able to assign songs to the work or rest intervals would be very cool. I’ll have to think about that one though - might be a bit tricky. A progress bar sounds nice though. We’ll see what I can get done in the next few weeks. Thanks again!
