Frequently asked questions

What is a digital timer?

A digital timer (or internet timer) displays how much time you’ve spent on a task. It may also refer to a digital clock. These clocks operate right from your web browser, automatically sync to your timezone, and can serve as an online alarm clock.

What is the Pomodoro Technique?

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method created by Francesco Cirillo that uses a timer to break time into working intervals (typically 25 minutes long) separated by breaks.

While the original method was done using a tomato-shaped kitchen timer, you can find a digital timer online. These timer websites often let you use keyboard shortcuts to adjust the length of your sessions.

Is a stopwatch the same as a timer?

Yes, but stopwatches are meant for short term tracking. They’re often used as a lap timer because they track time down to milliseconds.

A general timer may refer to a kitchen timer, a web timer, or any other variety of time keeper. Some will even let you track longterm events like birthdays, weddings, or vacations.
