Decimal Minutes Stopwatch
March 9, 2018 5:52 AM   Subscribe

I need a cheap stopwatch that displays minutes and 1/100 minutes rather than minutes and seconds. I can't find anything under $50. Does anyone know of $10 to $20 stopwatch with this feature?

Found this on DSG.

Oh dang it:
The stopwatch is laser tuned for 1/100th second accuracy and times all sports activities

Would a phone app work?

It looks like the term is "decimal stopwatch" or "decimal display stopwatch," but the cheapest I can find is about $50 at Walmart. This one has a resolution of 1/1000 minutes, but you can just round to 1/100 if that's what you need. Maybe look on eBay?

The cheapest I found is $65. Are you sure you can't just get seconds and multiply by 5/3?

The default stopwatches on both iOS and Android have 1/100 second measurements (I just checked).

They're looking for calculations for 1/100th of a minute

@FirstMateKate Thanks for the correction.

I did find this android app that has decimal minutes.
