Tabata Stopwatch Pro is the ultimate Tabata Interval Timer that works for 'all' your interval training needs. Use 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.

Glad I found this app! It works right out of the box. It's preset for the 4 minute (8 rounds of 20second/10 second) Tabata times, all you do is click one click to start. To do another Tabata you have to click the x first to clear the old one. I didn't realize that at first and thought it had quit working. Very simple screen, the numbers are big and easy to see, and there is a small 3 beeps to alert you to change from exercise to rest, plus a woman's voice. There is a banner ad across the top, I guess that would go away if you get the paid version. Try it, you'll like it!


Excellent and clean interface

This time or does everything you could possibly imagine. Paid version even better!! The only one thing I wish they would do, and that should be an easy fix, is that we should be able to wind back/forward the timer with a slider in real time and/or with "short taps" or 3D hard press on forward/rewind buttons by 5 seconds per tap or press. Ex: press PER 5 sec (fwd or back) or hard press for fwd/back one full set. Currently forward/rewind taps move you COMPLETELY fwd/back per tap. Add feature for moving in small chunks of time and this timer will be King!!!!!


Excellent Tabata app

This gives you just about everything you want in a Tabata app. You can use the standard settings of 20 seconds on it and 10 seconds off for eight rounds, or you can customize those numbers as well as enter the number of sets you want to do and the amount of recovery time between sets. You can also set the "warning" sound to let you know when your interval is coming to a close, and you can also set a music playlist, if you want to listen to certain songs while you exercise (or none, if you prefer).
