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!

    Will this work with Nike+? I’m looking for an interval timer that will work at the same time as Nike+.

    I downloaded the free app awhile back. It worked great as a stopwatch or a count down timer but when I set it up for intervals it would just shut off and disappear. I would have to start the whole timer over and lost time on those intervals.

    Anna - unfortunately this doesn’t work with the Nike+

    Todd - These are defects that I’m working on fixing. Soon! Hopefully in the next couple of weeks.

    Hi guys, love the app and the improvments. It would be fantastic if the music would come on automatically on the work phase and rest phase and pause in the audio cues so as to hear them.

    I totaly agree with previous comment on being able to save the wod time and label/ date stamp them to compile comparison of same WODs

    can you also include an interval timer function than can capture this kid of WOD
    10 min hspu
    5 min squats
    2 min pull ups
    1 min push ups

    as this one requires max reps to be counted on each discipline and totaled.
    Would be great to be able to have the ability to vary the interval times.

    Thanks once again keep up the great work.

    Matt - definitely some great ideas there. I’m hoping to add some more features to make this a pretty comprehensive app. Music features such as the one you’ve suggested, are a top requested feature. Also the saving of the presets.
    Thanks for the comment! Much appreciated.

    Really great user-friendly app. Thanks for creating it. I have one suggestion: Can you please add an option to adjust the volume for the audio cues If not, can you please increase the volume of the audio cue track. I find it very difficult to hear the female voice over the music. Incidentally, one of the reasons I decided on WOD was because it had an audio cue option.

    Thank you very much for your consideration

    I see there is an updated version dated Feb. 4 in the app store. Does this new version include the half way point as suggested above by Max?

    Hi Rose! No halftime warning yet, unfortunately. Hope to get this into another upcoming update. Thanks for the comment! If you’re on the fence, use the contact form above and I’ll hook you up with a promo code.
