    That's pretty cool!

    I've been working on upgrading my downloadable workout timer. Perhaps we can exchange ideas

    This version of the timer has a "Tick after Warn" option. It plays a clock tick for each second after the warning bell sounds. It wasn't really practical to play actual numbers, as that would require a unique sound file for each possible number.

    And for disconnected use, you can download this Zip file. Simply unzip to somewhere on your local hard drive and open the timerv1-2-beta.html file

    When you unzip the file you'll see a bunch of .wav files, just replace those with whichever files you choose, leave the filename the same and you won't have to update the HTML code.

Since many of use won't be able to see the display (just piping in the sound from off the PC), it'd be nice to hear either actual numbers or even some kind of custom warning sound to let us know when to expect the buzzer to go off.
    I'll look into that. Numbers might work, but maybe a beep of some sort...

    Hi Tim, I think your round timer is pretty damn cool. It's definately the most customizable timer of its kind that I've found. I do have a few requests on any updates you may make to the program, however.

    1. For those of us who will just be downloading it and running it on a pc without an internet connection, can you make an option to load and use personalized music or sound clips?

    I plan to play the sound over a sound system into my gym and won't have the ability to view a monitor to see the display.

    Along those same lines (not being able to see the clock), can you add an option to turn on/off an audible countdown for when the round begins, the end of round warning, and the countdown warning for the start of the next round? Since many of use won't be able to see the display (just piping in the sound from off the PC), it'd be nice to hear either actual numbers or even some kind of custom warning sound to let us know when to expect the buzzer to go off.

    Thanks for the great work!

    Glad you like it.

    I believe it will run off of a pocket pc, but I really can't try it. Download the zip file here and unzip it to somewhere on your pocket pc, then open the timer page with the web browser... I don't have access to a pocket PC so I can't test it myself

    Timer Question

    Hi Tim,
    I think the timer is excellent
    Is it possible to run this program on a pocket PC? The one i use runs off Windows 5.0. It would be great if i could save the programme to the mda then when i'm away or on holiday i've still got the timer available

    I'm not very technically minded when it comes to these things, so sorry if this seems a dumb question.

    Take care

    Steve

    If you are on the latest XP service packs and fixes you may be getting this multiple times when loading the page


    The latest version of the page has corrected this problem (Long story short - Microsoft loses lawsuit, and everyone with ActiveX controls on a page has to suffer. ActiveX control is used to play the sounds).

    Simply go here and the problem should no longer occur:
    http://www.speedbagforum.com/timerv1-1-beta.html

    If you run disconnected with no net connection, please unzip this file to the location of your choice. This zip contains the the fixes required.

    Online Workout Timer v1.1 Beta

    A new version of the free workout timer is available here:

    http://www.speedbagforum.com/timerv1-1-beta.html

    This new version consists of some bug fixes, plus the ability to save multiple sets of options.

    For example, I have a 3 minute / 60 second rest option for Heavy Bag, a 45 sec/10sec rest option for stretching, a Tabata interval etc.

    All of this could be done with the previous version but it involved a lot more mouse clicks. Once you save your options you can now retrieve them with 2 clicks.

    As always:
    1. No download or install is necesary, just run it right from the URL
    2. It works with IE and FireFox. Not sure about other browsers - feedback is welcome!
    3. I believe it will work on Mac/Linux/Windows - If you find that not to be the case, please let me know

    Please let me know if you find any bugs. You can find the original workout timer here: http://www.speedbagforum.com/timer.html

    I have to be honest I haven't really tried hitting to music yet. I'm tone def - or would that be rythmically challenged? I think I may give the metronome idea a shot though. I'll keep you posted.

    Work out timer,

    This is an interesting idea.

    Now in the "old days", I personally did this with individually edited music tapes. I would edit music tapes of various songs. I'd start out with a slow song (110, 120 beats per minute) and record it. then record, 30 - 45 seconds of silence, then about 5 seconds of the next one (my warning notice..). Then a few seconds later, the second song would play, (a little faster, maybe 130 beats per minute). I would do this for the entirety of the 90 minute tape, (both sides) and hit to three to five songs a workout. each song was at least three minutes, and the beat of the music guided my pace.

    I had slow, medium and fast tapes. depending on my mood. I started doing the same with CD, but don't record the rest period silence anymore.
