Tabata Stopwatch Pro is the ultimate Tabata Interval Timer that works for 'all' your interval training needs. You can use it with Tabata, HIIT, kettlebells, bodyweight exercises, interval running, sprints, etc.

Tabata Stopwatch Pro is a universal (both iPhone and iPad) feature packed interval timer for people who follow the Tabata training method. The main thing the Tabata app will aid you with is automating your exercise, rest, cooldown and other intervals. As simple as this sounds, it has a profound effect on your workout. You will be able to concentrate much better, won’t have to constantly count and honestly the whole workout just goes by faster. Try it with your Tabata, HIIT, kettlebells, bodyweight exercises, interval running, sprints, and other workouts.

Designed with both beginners and advanced users in mind Tabata Stopwatch Pro comes ready to use with basic Tabata already set up for you. As you gain more experience you can customize all intervals to match your pace. You may even create and store your own interval presets to quickly change to different workouts.

Tabata Stopwatch Pro is loaded with beeps that help identify what part of a workout you are in, interval beeps for example tell you when a new interval has started. Tabata Stopwatch Pro also has voice support that announces intervals to further help you focus on your workout. Oh and what would an exercise app be without music, select your favorite tracks from your iPod and blast through that workout.

The Apple Health app is supported and the Tabata app will write your Tabata workout times, calorie burned estimates and heart rates (needs a chest strap heart rate monitor and Pro purchase) after each workout.

Good riddance

Can only assume that the spate of recent 5-star reviews for this app are paid-for fakes. How are you respecting users' privacy when the non-personalised ads you now force on us in the free version are delivered with a Google tracking cookie (deceptively called a "unique identifier" to make it sound benign!) placed on our device? It's misleading to call it a free app - surrendering privacy to companies like Google is a cost! App deleted and good riddance

IN REPLY TO DEVELOPER: I deleted because of the ads. The Google identifier was just the icing on the cake. Please explain why the ad identifier is resettable if it's not for tracking?

Developer Response ,

Hey, That is because the non-personalised ads only use a resettable ad id (enforced by iOS itself) and do not track any of your personal information at all. Also, NONE of our reviews is fake. For more we are on

Hello again, as we mentioned in our previous reply, we only serve non-personalised ads in the app in the EEA and these do not track any personal information. The reason for the tracking code is only for frequency capping and to combat fraud and that is it.

We also have an option to purchase an ad-free version if you prefer, no one is forcing you to use anything as you put it. And again, we are literally the number 1 Tabata app on the planet, take user privacy very seriously and none of our reviews are fake as you keep mentioning.

Excellent app with one wee mini flaw

Love this app, I'm a heavy girl and can't follow the couch to 10K app cause it's too much so I customised my own with this app. The only thing I don't like is if you are using the music on your phone and come out the app to skip past a song it pauses the app... it's a bit annoying but it's the only thing I dislike. Thanks

Great App, easy to use

Been using this app for a few weeks with my clients during training sessions and it's great. Easy to use, the only thing I'd like to see is for louder countdown notifications and a final notification at the end of a Tabata as sometimes my clients can't hear them when working out
