Dash Timer

Elegant. Powerful. Intuitive. 

Designed by an elite athlete, fully-featured, and FREE of accounts or subscriptions. Incredibly intuitive, yet ready to handle your most intricate runs and workouts.


The Best Stopwatch & Workout Application

Dash Timer is different than the rest.

In fact, it was created due to the precise frustrations felt when trying to use everything else on the market. Ample data customization and visibility during distance runs, true lap functionality with time/distance/pace, customizable auto-lap distances, an integrated sport stopwatch, and several extra features for sprinters, lifters, and time-based workouts are all features that set Dash Timer apart. Our easy-to-use design is extremely versatile and allows you to get the most out of your workouts. See what it has to offer you today!




"As a collegiate distance runner and developer, I have been frustrated with the lack of functionality other apps provide on Apple Watch. Dash Timer changes this with its customizability for advanced runners and easy ability to take splits while tracking distance without a phone. Being able to take splits at any time with the physical side buttons or easy screen gestures finally lets me track advanced workouts without limitations on Apple Watch. The workout data is flawlessly synced to Apple Health, so I can look back at all the splits and distances of past runs. Whether you just need a simple-to-use stopwatch or need to track intricate workouts with GPS, Dash Timer is a game changer for the Apple Watch!"

App Features

Elegant stopwatch & Workout Companion. Starting pistol, lap controls, & music controls. Ease of use, timed haptics, physical button support, and so much more! 

Dash Timer is a stopwatch and workout application elegantly combined into one robust and easy-to-use package. The full-screen stopwatch is easy to see and effortless to control. Simple touch controls, intuitive swipe gestures, and the lack of small buttons speak to the fact that this stopwatch is designed to be used during intense physical activity.

From the stopwatch screen, you can also monitor your heart rate, control your music, and toggle the workout screen. 

Before starting your workout, you can swipe up on the workout screen to select between an outdoor run, a track & field workout, a strength training session, or something else. Once a workout has been initiated, workout metrics can be toggled and customized to your liking. Dash Timer can display your total duration, distance traveled, time for your current mile/kilometer, and previous mile/kilometer split. It can also show your current pace, average pace, and pace for your current mile/kilometer. Current heart rate, average heart rate, bpm range, and calories burned are also available. Finally, if you are on an outdoor run, you also have access to lap controls. Keep track of lap time, lap distance, lap mile/km pace, and your previous lap's split with ease. ALL of this data is stored forever in the Activity and Health apps on your iPhone.

Dash Timer is also full of extra features. As previously mentioned, music controls are available from the stopwatch screen. However, you can force-touch your Apple Watch at any time to access much more:

  • Command Starts - Want to practice block starts? Don't have access to starting the stopwatch from your current position? Allow Dash Timer to give you a "SET" command followed by the sound of a starting pistol. It will then automatically start the stopwatch for you. You're welcome. 

  • Timed Haptics - Dash Timer can also be set to give you sound/haptic feedback at set intervals while the stopwatch is running. Keep track of time without even looking at your watch! Track & Field athletes can use this to make sure they are staying on pace during an interval. Weight lifters can use this to time their rest intervals, sets, or even individual reps. Those participating in a HIT workout can use timed haptics to keep track of when they should change activities. CrossFit users can use timed haptics for EMOM workouts. Sometimes, it just isn't convenient to look at your watch while working out. See how timed haptics may be helpful for you!

  • Customizable Settings - Change the look of your stopwatch, your workout type, units of measurement and more. You can even enable physical button support and auto-laps for workouts.

Got Questions? We’re Here to Help.

Sounds great, but how is this any different than other apps, like Nike or Strava?

Great question! Actually, Dash Timer was created due to the precise frustrations felt when trying to use those other applications.

For runners, Dash Timer offers the complete package: far more data customization and visibility during distance runs; true lap functionality with time, distance, and pace; mile/km notifications; and other features such as auto laps, physical button support, an integrated stopwatch built for athletics, and more. 

For CrossFit athletes & weightlifters, Dash Timer is useful because of the ability to use the integrated athletic stopwatch (with timed haptics) while simultaneously keeping track of workout metrics. This aids in HIIT workouts, EMOM workouts, and for tracking reps & rest periods in the weight room.

For Track & Field athletes, Dash Timer features a starting pistol, timed haptics to keep you on pace, and an amazing stopwatch built specifically for athletics. Dash Timer can track your progress while taking jumps, charging up those hills, running intervals, and more. Again, using the athletic stopwatch while simultaneously keeping track of workout metrics is key.

ALL athletes are welcome to see how a stopwatch and fitness tracker can work together to bring their training to the next level.

Is there an iPhone version? Anything for Android?

Rather than being designed for iPhone and then "watered down" for Apple Watch, Dash Timer was designed exclusively for the Apple Watch. There is no functional iPhone version of this app. However, your iPhone can be used to review Apple Watch instructions and to store workout information in your Activity and Health apps.
At this time, Apple Watch is the only wearable device supported by Dash Timer.

I can't find any saved workout information on my iPhone.

You can access calories burned, distance traveled, duration of workout, heartrate details, and average pace (if applicable) for all previously saved workouts in your ACTIVITY app for iPhone. If the Activity app from Apple isn't installed on your phone, please see that it is installed from the Apple App Store. 

Outdoor runs also have the ability to save mile splits, kilometer splits, and custom lap information. This data is saved in your iPhone's HEALTH app. To see lap data, mile splits, and kilometer splits from your outdoor runs, follow the steps below:

For iOS 13:

  1. Open Apple Health (Install from the App Store if needed).

  2. Hit "Show All Health Data"

  3. Scroll down to "Workouts"
    (Note: You can save "workouts" into your favorites menu, making this a faster process for the future).

  4. Tap "Show All Data"

  5. Choose a previous workout (look for Dash Timer's App Logo) and view details to your heart's content :)

For iOS 12:

  1. Open Apple Health (Install from the App Store if needed).

  2. Hit the "Sources" tap.

  3. Tap on "Dash Timer."

  4. Tap on "Data."

  5. Tap on "Workouts."

  6. Choose a previous workout and view details to your heart's content :) ​

I've turned on sounds in Dash Timer's settings, but still can't hear anything!

Take your Apple Watch out of silent mode 😊. During workouts, this is highly recommended. You might also consider turning on Do-Not-Distub Mode while working out so that texts, calls, and other notifications don't distract you.

How do I change my workout type?

As long as a workout is NOT in session, you can swipe up on the workout screen to reveal workout types. 

By force-touching (hard pressing) your Apple Watch, you can also access Dash Timer settings. It is also possible to change your default workout type from there.

I'm having a few issues with Dash Timer since upgrading to watchOS 6. What gives?

With the introduction of watchOS 6, Dash Timer (v1.0) did suffer from a few bugs. However, v1.1 has since been released to fix these issues! Check the App Store for an update that will deliver bug fixes, new features, and a performance boost!


Our Story

David Voland is a teacher, coach, and elite Track & Field athlete. While training for the US Olympic Trials in the 400 Hurdles, he was frustrated by the lack of workout applications designed specifically for interval-based workouts. So, he set out to create an application for personal use. Almost immediately, this Track & Field companion became the most-used application on his own Apple Watch. Additionally, his friends and family became quite jealous of the fact that they couldn't download the app for themselves. As a result, Dash Timer was born! Runners, track & field athletes, CrossFit athletes, weight lifters, fans of HIIT workouts, and those who enjoy awesome stopwatches will especially enjoy Dash Timer.


David Voland is a teacher, coach, and elite athlete. Not a super-wealthy entrepreneur 🙂. He is currently training for the 2020 US Olympic Trials in the 400 Hurdles and hopes to travel around the world for races that will make that a reality. All purchases of Dash Timer will fuel this dream as well as future development. Additionally, you can donate to the dream here.
