Stopwatch recommendations?
« on: Sep 11, 2015, 09:38 pm »
Would anyone have a suggestion for a good stopwatch?
There are so many out there I don't know where to begin!

Haha. My production manager made fun of me when he bought me a new stop watch and the first thing that I did was open it up and cut the speaker out.

Similar to Maribeth mine doesn't beep, and it also has a tally counter (to make quick work of double checking large opera chorus scenes)

I've been shopping around on Amazon for a new stopwatch, and I was trying to decide between this one and another.  I stumbled upon this one at Walmart, so I went ahead and grabbed it.  It's pretty great!  I love the tally feature, very helpful for counting attendance/places quickly.

This one is great if you're calling a show because it will show you the time AND you can time how long the show is. You can also use it to count down two separate things at the same time (but that seems less useful for me)

I like this because I always forget to check the time during rehearsal, and I forget to start timing the show when I start calling top-of-show cues. Having something big that can sit on my desk makes it easier to remember.

My advice is to make sure it has backlighting so you can see it in the dark wings unless you are in the booth in which case it doesn't matter.

Hope helped  ;)
