Lsat watch: 180 watch vs lsat timer

Postby Nicolena. » Sat Nov 16, 2013 3:56 am

I know many of you are against this, but what is the difference between the "lsat timer" and the "180 watch". I know the pice is about a $35 dollar difference, but does one really work better than the other.

With the 180 Watch, all you have to do to reset the timer to 35 minutes is press a button. With the LSAT Timer/LSAT Watch, you have to manually reset it. Takes maybe a few seconds.

I am using the 180 watch and its great, I would have paid a lot more for it if I had to. It might not be necessary but it gives me a lot of comfort when timing. As for the timer, I read a few reviews that scared me off of it like that it wouldnt erk properly at times. I would highly recommend the 180 watch.

honestly 180 watch is terrible terrible quality. I havent used the other watch (I ordered it a few days ago because my 180 watch broke), but i can let you know how that works out.

Thanks. I'd appreciate that. I noticed 180 is sold out so I'm leaning towards lsat timer, but Lmk what brand you are using. Thanks again!

I used 180 and I thought it was great and well worth the money.

I used the 180 Watch and thought it was great. A couple times after jostling around the watch in my bag during my studies, I had to reset it manually by pulling the crown out a notch and pressing the buttons, but if you treat it with care it should work fine.

This, I did the manual one and after practicing with it on PTs for a few months it became pretty much second nature.

Mods, this is likely spam. This same user just bumped two old watch threads. See here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=182857

Also, I have no idea why anyone uses an LSAT watch. Here's how to time yourself for the LSAT

1. Get a watch
2. Set it to 11:25
3. At 12:00, the section is done.
4. Wind it back to 11:25.

Step four takes *literally* 1 second.

There are a million and one things you could do to affect your LSAT score, but getting a special watch isn't one of them.

it's kinda helpful to be notified if it's spam, though. Almost took it seriously, like I was seriously confused. Who would use a "180 watch". An app works fine

To clarify: comment on spam all you want. I meant more that saying "mods, this is spam" in thread probably won't get you very far, because the mods aren't guaranteed to see it unless you report it.

dunno dude i found the 180 watch helpful. i liked having red marks every 8 minutes, since i tried to allot 8 mins to a typical game/RC passage.
