The SportCount Stopwatch model is especially useful to athletes who want to time their own sprints, workouts, and races. Because the compact Stopwatch fits on your finger and operates with a simple press of your thumb, it won't interfere with exercise. There is no need to reach across your body to operate a sports watch, and there are no extraneous buttons or lanyards to get in the way. The Stopwatch is also great for spectator timing sports (e.g. car races, swim meets) and many other nonathletic timing uses (e.g., cooking, work task timing, etc.). The SportCount Stopwatch is created by an American company and comes with great customer service and a full one year warranty.
