|A computer program to improve your crews timing!|
|Watch-Man is a computer program that provides 10 recording stop watches in a laptop computer. The program allows you to easily time up to 10 cars at once -- for up to 500 laps per session.|
Error-Free timing of up to 10 cars in multi-car sessions
- Real-time grid positions during qualifying. Great with radios!
- Complete storage and printing for analysis and documentation
- Easy to use -- critical while standing at the pit wall
|From the June, 1994 issue of SportsCar where Tim Winker reviewed 6 laptop timing programs costing $100 or less. Heres what he had to say:|
|Given its capabilities, Watch-Man is, for me, the most user-friendly of the programs researched for this article. It is menu-driven and the programs options are quite self-explanatory. Fastest lap times are displayed during qualifying sessions, allowing the crew to keep the driver informed during the session instead of after it....Best of all, I was able to use the program without wading through all of the documentation first.|
(and record the times) of up to 10 cars simultaneous for up to 500 laps each.
One non-recording stopwatch for timing intervals or segments.
Display in real-time: Running lap time, last lap time, fastest lap time and grid position.
Display and/or print: Grid position, finishing order, all times for one car, all times for all cars on one lap, "combo"-- grid plus all times for one car.
Full smart editing capability (you cant create or destroy time and the program knows it).
Real-world design minimizes errors (e.g. the program ignores key strokes which would signal impossibly fast lap times).
|Compatibility and Cost|
runs on any Wintel (IBM compatible) computer using DOS version 3.0 or greater.
