Hello All! When I first got my sports stopwatch, I started the stopwatch and never stopped it. It's at 28,472 hours now, which translates to 3.25 years. I'm just wondering if anyone else out there has done the same thing. One of the cool things about the electronic stopwatch is that the electronic stopwatch backup function saves every single detail about your electronic stopwatch, and so when you restore to a backup where the stopwatch was running, the restored electronic stopwatch will be at where it would have been had you never restored your electronic stopwatch, as if nothing happened. It obviously tracks itself against the cellular time code. So if anyone else runs their stopwatch constantly, let me hear it! Steiney.about two months ago.
I've actually used the stopwatch, so no
Wow, that's awesome I started mine today when school started, 18:22:18 hours ago. (but my electronic stop watch died earlier today so idk if that got counted).
Yeah, it definitely got counted. The stopwatch sets a timestamp when you start it, and then anytime you view it after that, it checks itself against the timestamp and shows the value of the difference between the timestamp and the actual time.
haha yeah I did that on my 3G and even though I have gotten other electronic stopwatches it always keeps it from where it left off I need to look where mine is it was up to like 2 years though
does this drain battery life?
Probably not, since it's not constantly running in the background. Seems like every time you reopen the app, it checks for the last timestamp and continues from there. You can try it-- start the stopwatch, then hit the home button. Quit the app from the multitasking bar, then reopen it. It'll start up as if it never stopped in the first place. Cool "feature" I hadn't heard of until now
I've been doing the same but not for as long. I'm currently on 1450 hours. Your time is awesome by the way. I do that too for some reason. Mine is at over 30,000 hours stopwatch. It is kind of annoying because I can never use the stopwatch, but I have never wanted to stop it. Way back the numbers were too big and the time didn't even display correctly, but Apple seems to have fixed that so it shouldn't have problems anymore.
Interesting but why? I guess I just never needed the stopwatch. I'm definitely doing this when I get my upgrade next year!
Wow. I'm pretty psyched at the response I got from my initial post. Dave420, that's pretty impressive. You've got my 24000 hours beat! Very nice. You must have bought your electronic stopwatch a couple of months before I bought mine.
The only thing I use the stopwatch for is cooking. I time how long I have my baked goods in the oven. That's about it. Have you seen any noticeable effects on battery life running the stopwatch constantly?
Dif'rent strokes for different folks. Haha. I really have no way of knowing the strain it puts on the battery since I've been running the stopwatch constantly since I got it. Have you seen any noticeable effects on battery life running the stopwatch constantly? small price to pay for such fun! Just passed 4 years
Nice! Way to dig up an old thread! I totally forgot I had created this thread. I'm no longer running my stopwatch. I switched to Android briefly when the electronic stopwatch 4S came out because I wanted a bigger screen. I thoroughly regretted it afterward and now have an electronic stopwatch 5, but my stopwatch progress was lost and never got back into it. That's great to see that you're still running with it though! I'm impressed.
Haha, you beat me out too. I lost mine when I was having issues with the initial iOS 6 update and Apple suggested resetting my settings. The settings reset didn't fix my issue, but it did clear my stopwatch.

You CAN use your stopwatch. You just need to note lap times and differences in subsequent lap times. Too much math for you? SandboxGeneral said:

Has anyone ever unloaded your clothes from the dryer and pile them into a wrinkled mess?
