Interval Timer

Fitness timers are also often used for interval training. The intervals of effort and pause can be entered individually. Depending on whether an athlete uses the training timer for running or for a circuit training, several programs can be stored.

The interval timers also usually have a built-in stopwatch function and a countdown counter.
