Is this type of watch/timer allowed in real LSAT test?

Postby bbkk » Thu Dec 27, 2012 2:44 pm

Hello All,

I'm new to this forum and I'm planning to take the Feb 2012 test. I was randomly reading LSAT-related stuff online today and came cross this watch (see below link). I am just wondering if this is really allowed in LSAT??? Isn't it consider a timer?? Have any one of you ever brought one of these into a real test???

Let me know what you guys think!! Thank you all!!

Yes, I used this exact watch all three times I took the LSAT with no problems.

Thank you for your reply. I saw some reviews on Amazon and some people say it's poor quality and some even stopped working during the real exam...what do you think? How many watches can you bring to a test? I'm thinking of bringing two, just in case one stopped working and I do need to keep track of time...

Such a gimmick. Bought a huge analog watch at Target for around $18 and it has lasted me over two years with constant winding (and still continues to work).

Yep, I used this one (http://lsatwatch.webs.com) three times also. Highly recommended.

Decided to get a Casio Analog watch with a rotating bezel...should be good enough...

but for that timer, many people said it's hard to start accurately, is that true for you guys?

For second-hand neurosis, http://180watch.com/ is the watch for you. Used this twice on test day and will be using it a third time next summer. These watches are so in-demand that they can't manufacture enough of them and offered to buy them back at 50% value after the June LSAT. They tick every 2 seconds very, very quietly (as in, only if you're in an absolutely silent room will you hear any tick at all). It is also the only analog watch that resets the second hand unless with the push of a button. If you want that option on any other watch, you need to move into chronographs, which are expensive and most tick loudly.

Is the "180 Watch" still available? I got a little nervous when I saw that their website still lists October as the "next LSAT date". I figured the company might have quietly faded away.

that thing is stupid, do not buy it
just get a regular $10.00 analog from walmart and turn it to 12:00 before every section.
or to 11:25 before every section.

Do not use the lsattimer brand, it is JUNK!!!!!!! I bought this and it was a waste of money. It wasn't accurate and it would just stop working half way through a section.
