Description

Function:

DoubleTime is a double alarm timer that loops back and forth. When one alarm timer is done counting down, a signal sound or vibration of your choice is played, then the 2nd (other) timer begins counting down, and so on...

Instructions:

1)You can set each timer by scrolling up or down to the desired time frame in minutes, however only the time set from timer#1 will show on the display initially.

2) Once you hit the green start button, the timer#1 will begin countdown and when it finishes, timer#2 will then pop up on the display and start counting down.

3) The settings can be changed by pushing the little gear button in the bottom left corner. The timer will continue to count while you are on the settings screen. To go back to the main window, just select the sound or vibration setting that you want and the main window will pop right back up.

4) This screen is obtainable by pushing the little letter i with a circle around it in the bottom right hand corner. The timer will continue to count while you are on the settings screen. To go back to the main window, just hit the little button that says "timer" in the top left hand of this screen.

5) You can change the timer settings whenever you want with the scroll wheel or red stop button, but be aware that this will stop and reset both timers. You will need to push the green start again to start countdown again.

Value:

It is good practice to take frequent breaks during activities, whether it be studying or using a computer. However, up until now there has been no easy way to do this. Instead, one must be constantly vigilant of the time, but that ends up taking away focus and energy from the task at hand.

Now, with DoubleTime, you can set the timers, appropriate to whatever activity you want to organize, and then forget it! Just set it & forget it! The vibrate mode allows you to use it in a library while studying, so your alarm doesn't bother anyone!

Benefits*:

• Increased focus on your studying

• Better memory retention by spacing your study times and using your breaks to integrate

• Less book-related or computer-related eye strain or wrist strain

• Improved mental health from taking your breaks to reflect and relax

• Better physical health if you move around on your breaks

• Improved and more efficient academic performance

• More time to do other things because of your increased efficiency

Study Tips:

• For each half-hour block of time, study 25 minutes and take a 5-minute break. Or, for each hour block of time, study 50 minutes and take a 10-minute break. This short relaxation period permits you to recover your ability to concentrate. To help prevent book or computer-related eye & wrist strain, give your eyes a rest by gazing at a distant object and stop typing. Better yet, physically get up and move around or go outside for five minutes.

• Never study more than 2 consecutive 1-hour blocks without a long relaxation period (30-45 minutes). Concentration decreases rapidly after 2 hours of uninterrupted work and requires a minimum of 30 minutes to recover adequately. It is a good idea to switch to a different subject after the break.
