LEAP Sports Stopwatch Digital Chronograph Watch Timer Countdown Date Clock
Review from Jeannie’s Product Reviews
This arrived well packaged. I hate getting damaged goods and packing is so important. It comes in several colour choices, I have the purple one.
It feels a very robust device, ait doesn’t say its water proof/shower proof but given its going to be used outdoors I’d assume it is at least showerproof, and there doesn’t seem to be any reason why not from looking/testing it. It has a lanyard style neck cord attached, which is useful and makes it easy to use always being to hand. Its got a fairly solid plastic surround which will help protect in the event it gets dropped, but I feel the neck cord makes that unlikely. Its got a large clear display which is relatively easy to read, though in dull light (i.e. UK misty/rainy autumn days) it could be difficult, and a back light would have helped. ( instructions for other models show one with a backlight – if thats important look for that) Still for the money its great value as is.
I gave it to Him Indoors to set up – there’s an instruction booklet which is very clear, but the text too small for me – I have eyesight issues though, and he found it fine to use. Once he’d worked out which device he’d got ( the manual has several different ones and the A.B,C,D buttons differ according to which device you have) then he soon had date and time set up. The stopwatch displays down to 1/100th of a second, great for competitive people and sports professionals who need that accuracy. Its got an alarm – I love those being one of the people who can lose track of time easily….as susual Him Indoors thought it would be fun to set that kowing I’m usless at switching them off! Little things…It has a memory function too, though not being a sports professional I’m unsure of how that works.
I had to keep referring to the manual for the stopwatch/timer settings but I’m sure with constant use that would just become second nature. Iwe have great fun with these timing the grandkids racing round the garden – they love anything competitive, and love stopwatches!
Stars: Five. great for sports professional and just for fun.
