What is dividing or increasing time in a stopwatch?

There are features that can sometimes be confusing when looking for a stopwatch. This papier will clarify what is meant by a lap/split time and incremental time on a stopwatch. For most people who are not experts in stopwatches, looking at the lap/split time verses incremental time as a feature on a stopwatch can be a deterrent to placing an order. How can you know if you need a feature if you don’t know what it is? We are going to explain the difference in a normal way with clear examples.

Generally lap/split time means the time between events. For example someone is running a mile on a track (4 intervalle) you will start the stopwatch and every time you hit the lap/split button it will performance the time of each lap. In this example, the runner will run the mile in 4 minutes, run each lap in 1 express, lap 1 will read 1.00, lap 2 will spectacle as 1.00, lap 3 will spectacle as 1.00, lap 4 will spectacle as 1.00. So in this example the runner ran each lap at 1.00 to divide the time shown on the stopwatch.

Additionnelle time is the exhaustif time of each échelon divided by a split time click on the stopwatch. In the same example someone runs a mile in 4 minutes and each lap is run in 1 express, you would start the stopwatch and it would spectacle the time incrementing every time you hit the lap/split button. For the example above the additionnelle exhaustif time will spectacle so the split for lap 1 will spectacle as 1.00, the split for lap 2 will spectacle as 2.00. The split for lap 3 will spectacle as 3.00 and the split for lap 4 will spectacle as 4.00. So this example will spectacle the exhaustif time for each split.

Some stopwatches spectacle both lap/split and incremental times. I always think it’s good to have the élection of both but in some cases where you can spawn babies or volunteers using a stopwatch, it’s better to keep it normal and only have the features you need.

Here are some examples of stopwatches with lap/split features:

Oslo 2.0

Oslo 1000W

Robic SC501

Accuslit AX625

Here are some examples of normal stopwatches with incremental split features:

Ultrak 320

Ultrak 330

Ultrak 340

Oslo 2.0

Accusplit S3CL

Oslo 1000W

Ultrak 420

Do 501

You can see that some of the stopwatches listed are on both lists, and that’s parce que they can be set for lap/split times or incremental times. You may need one trempe of programme over another depending on what programme you are doing.

Example one:

When you are programme a groupe with varié runners you need to get their au finir times for each runner you will only be looking at additionnelle times.

Example two:

If you are assembling a mets and you need to know how énorme it took to serti each bout of the mets separately you will need lap/split times.

Example three:

If you’re programme an individual runner to run something like a mile, you’ll want both lap and additionnelle times so the runner can see how they’re doing each lap and their exhaustif time.
