Timer Tells Athletes Their Hang Time

by Paul Strauss

This unconventional watch is designed for daredevil types who love sports that involve flying through the air.

DropZone HangTimer WatchPerfect for those who enjoy skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding or biking, DropZone’s HangTimer measures how much time you spent in the air once your body left the ground. By combining a stopwatch with a 3-axis accelerometer, it automatically detects the second you hit the sky, and the second you land. The result: an accurate reading of your hang time.

The compact device hooks onto your belt loop or your sporting equipment using a durable carabiner clip, making it pretty tough to lose. It’s also water resistant to 3 meters and shockproof so it should hold up to most of the relevant “extreme sports” (although high diving would be out.)

In addition to its hang time measurement capability, the HangTimer is a fully functional clock with current date and temperature readouts.

It’s available directly from the HangTimer website for $99. Once you get one for yourself, be sure to post back with your record times!

    I’ll break out my basketball skillz and see if this thing can register a hangtime of 0.7 seconds.
