Stopwatch 1.0.4.0

Simplistic piece of software that comes bundled with limited features for helping you make use of a stopwatch, as you are allowed to start or stop the timer, and reset data
Stopwatch is a lightweight software application whose sole purpose is to help you time your activities with the aid of a stopwatch.

Minimalistic looks

There’s not much to brag about the user interface as it embeds only a few dedicated parameters to tinker with. The utility was designed with an overall simplicity in mind, so most of the actions can be accomplished on the fly.

You can also access the app’s functions by performing a right-click mouse operation on its icon from the system tray.

Main features

Stopwatch gives you the possibility to view the time displayed in days, hours, minutes, and seconds. What’s more, it reveals additional information about the date and time when the stopwatch is activated.

The program allows you to start or pause the stopwatch, and reset the entire information with just one click. The lack of configurable settings makes it an ideal tool especially for less experienced users who don’t want to spend too much time tweaking the process in detail.

What it lacks

However, several features are welcomed for improving the overall performance of the application. It would have been useful to see support for functions that could help you record the time results in a dedicated panel, export the results to a file, use a countdown timer with sound notifications, and customize the text displayed in the main window in terms of font, font style, size, and color, just to name a few suggestions.

Bottom line

To sum it up, Stopwatch proves to be a simplistic piece of software that comes bundled with limited features for helping you make use of a stopwatch.
