"unlike with other watches, no need to waste valuable seconds trying to find the minute hand amidst all the noise or trying to calculate minutes left"

here is a link for future 180'rs: http://lsatwatch.webs.com/apps/testimonials/


I prefer this one:

It's been extremely helpful for my timing in reading comprehension. And I actually wear it during non-LSAT occasions (I think in 35 minute blocks now) and have gotten so many compliments about the simplicity and functionality of the design. Keep doing what you're doing!

guys GUYS, there are (at least) TWO lsat watches:
http://180watch.com/
http://lsatwatch.webs.com/

My review was pulled from the second site, but this thread is about the FIRST SITE. That said, the first site is not without informative testimonials:

"I've used the watch for two LSATs and in every practice test for months without issue."

Given the options, I think the only logical thing to do here is DW.

TWO? Why would you retake a 180? If I were to buy one, I think I'd have to get the second one.

I've been using the 180 watch for the past couple months and found it very, very useful. Will be wearing it tomorrow during PT 69.

As I also said in the last "LSAT watch" thread, if you cannot calculate x + 35 (0 =< x =< 59) in a negligible time without using mechanic or electronic assistance, no gadget will help you score well in a standardized test or amount to anything big in the aftermath. Sad news everyone.

that's not true. i scored v well on the lsat and found the 180 watch useful. even if it's pretty easy to make those calculations, not having to do so frees your mental energy for other things.

in all seriousness, i do recommend this watch.

It's more about remembering them after the fact. Just reset a standard analog or use a bezel.
