    A stopwatch/monitor or something you can set to beep every 10 seconds?

    This is an odd question, but is there such a thing as something that you can set to beep every 10 seconds in repeating fashion? I want to do timed sets, but don't want to have to stare at a stopwatch at the same time. And like everyone else I like to listen to music while exercising, but if I have to count the seconds myself I can't enjoy the music as much.

    So I'm looking for some tool that will just make a quick noise every 10 seconds, allowing me to keep time easily.

    And you are correct. I have one, and love it for timed sets, intervals, etc.

    That's an awesome idea. Personally I would LOVE one for doing HIITS.

    I recently bought a used Polar F11, which is a heartbeat monitor that uses a strap that goes across your chest. It came in the mail with dead batteries, which I recently sent out for order.

    I'm really hoping it has that capability, because looking at your watch counting intervals sucks. Worst case scenario, I'll write an iPhone App that does it for me.

    edit: Just to give you folks an idea. This watch retails for $175. I got it off ebay for ~$50! I strongly encourage buying one off of there.

    Because if it were easy, I wouldn't be interested.

    Nothing like a sexy computer voice telling to when you are fried and allowed to stop.

    Also nothing like that same bitchy wench telling you to go again on your eighth set either! LOL

    Great, thanks.

    That online voice is pretty cool, but I'll think I'll get that Gym Boss.

    Yeh, I was looking for one of these recently, I'm hoping I can use it for interval sprint/run training and in the future if I do circuit training/kettlebells type thing. I've got it on order from eBay for ?14.

    Specs look good
