How do you guys .time an exercise i.e if wod says squat for 20 seconds (how do you time this whilst counting reps)I don't think I could focus on a stopwatch whilst exercising.

there is a great stopwatch by seiko that does the countdown for work and rest periods seperated with audible tones. Its posted somewhere, ill see if i can locate it, i have one but its at the gym . cant recall the model. I also find that a dual digital cooking timer, with masking tape on the rear works well too. 1 set it for 20 seconds countdown when it goes off i hit it to start the "countup" rest. at 10 seconds I hit it again to start over.

the g-shock watch with a stopwatch and 10 second sweep window is pretty good too.

The Timex Rush VO2 works for me. Only $35. It has a dual countdown timer that can do the Tabata Interval.
