About this app

Tabata Stopwatch Pro is the ultimate Tabata Interval Timer that works for 'all' your interval training needs. You can use it with Tabata, HIIT, kettlebells, bodyweight exercises, interval running, sprints, etc.

Tabata Stopwatch Pro is a universal (both Android phones and Android tablets) feature packed interval timer for people who follow the Tabata training method. The main thing the Tabata app will aid you with is automating your exercise, rest, cooldown and other intervals. As simple as this sounds, it has a profound effect on your workout. You will be able to concentrate much better, won’t have to constantly count and honestly the whole workout just goes by faster. Try it with your Tabata, HIIT, kettlebells, bodyweight exercises, interval running, sprints, and other workouts.

Designed with both beginners and advanced users in mind Tabata Stopwatch Pro comes ready to use with basic Tabata already set up for you. As you gain more experience you can customize all intervals to match your pace. You may even create and store your own interval presets to quickly change to different workouts.

Tabata Stopwatch Pro is loaded with beeps that help identify what part of a workout you are in, interval beeps for example tell you when a new interval has started. Tabata Stopwatch Pro also has voice support that announces intervals to further help you focus on your workout. Oh and what would an exercise app be without music, select your favorite tracks and blast through that workout.

The Google Fit app is supported and the Tabata app will write your Tabata workout times, calorie burned estimates and heart rates (needs a chest strap heart rate monitor and Pro purchase) after each workout.

The user interface is horrible. There's no convenient list of programs. To load a program you have to go into settings. You can't edit a program. Instead you delete it and create a new one from scratch. There's no volume control, and the sound can be quite faint if you're listening to music. The free edition only allows you to create 2 programs. To get more there's a ridiculously expensive annual subscription fee. Give me a break. It's just an interval timer. I'm deleting it.

The user interface is really quite simple, well thought out and loved by most people who use the app (a few million people). You can easily edit programs, just load it and edit your measures and save it again. Volume control is same as device volume, you can just increase that with your phone's buttons or from the Android interface.

With the 3.0 update, things have taken a turn for the worse. Notifications are gone, which means that while wearing a smart watch you can no longer see the cycle and set information. Additinoally, the music feature is no longer functional. It is unfortunate to release new versions of software without achieving feature parity. If I could roll back to a version < 3.0, I would.

Hi Dave, sorry, yes, we just released an update yesterday that fixes the songs part and also a few problems with heart rate monitors people we seeing. I am unaware of the notifications trouble you are having, if you have a minute can you please share a little more about what you mean here on and we will fix it.

Very very nice app. Extremely straightforward but has everything that I'd really need. There are also very few ads and I only see one short ad every handful of workouts. The only option I would like to see added is an option to adjust the sound setting of the timer and voice since I listen to music through the same device and turn the volume up but that means the voice and timer are both quite loud. Other than that this app is actually everything I wanted.

What's new

Version 3.0.1 fixes a problem where people on Android 13 were unable to add songs to workout with, very sorry about this. We have also tried to fix a crash some of you were seeing when you opened the app or started a workout. Your heart rate monitors should also be working again.

The previous one was a bit of an oopsie? Really sorry. If you’re still having trouble write to us!

Have awesome workouts, More soon.
