A free, full-featured, and accurate stopwatch for Windows

Free Stopwatch is flexible digital stopwatch software. This stopwatch measures time intervals in hours, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds. By default, the timer counts in 10-millisecond increments.

Just press the Start button to begin the count and press the Stop button at the finish line. You can also press the Lap button to fix the times between laps. Free Stopwatch records an infinite number of laps. To remove the lap from the list, hover your mouse over it in the list and click the cross button.

At some point, everyone needs a stopwatch. Lab experiments, time tracking, and sporting events such as sprints are just a few examples.

Exporting results

At the end of the measurements, you can export the results to a file that can be opened in Notepad or Microsoft Excel. Or you can copy the results to the clipboard and paste them into another program.
