What is ******* watch?

Okay, I've been searching old threads for the general consensus on Stop Watches. Everyone seems to be talking about "*******". Is that a brand name/some sort of code? Google gave me nothing.

In short, I'm looking for a stop watch that could time two+ people at once. Basically, we're short in some areas regarding equipment, so we do a stagger start (a la Filthy Fifty). I start my current watch when person A starts. When person B starts I write down the time on the watch and just subtract at the end. It's okay for a couple of people, but doing it for more than 5 is a pain. Any suggestions? (Does that make sense?)

Thanks.

Re: What is ******* watch?

I love ******* watch and use it all the time. It also helps with my **** when I'm *******. Also try ******* bench and ***** bumpers. When I'm done with a work out I say "Oh ****!"

Seriously, I don't know what you're talking about.

Yeah, honestly, I don't think it's people subbing for profanity. Thanks though, really.

Re: What is ******* watch?

The ******* is blocking a brand name that was giving shirts away to people who posted posative reviews on forums like this. It was getting out of hand and so blocked.

I don't have an answer to your timing problem. Sorry and good luck.

It's a brand name, that's been removed and replaced with asterisks for some reason.

Google "interval timer," and look for a 7 letter brand name that starts with a G.

Re: What is ******* watch?

This is ridiculous. I don't care about shirts; can we talk about gear or not?

Re: What is ******* watch?

Thanks guys. After digging some more, I figured it out. I guess I'm going to just buy a bunch of cheap stop watches.

Brandon, You are absolutely right. I wonder if I type in the actual word, does it get filtered or does a Mod fix it? G-y. . . . better not test fate. . . or Lynne's patients.

Re: What is ******* watch?

You may discus the 'boss of the gym' timer. What was out of hand was the number of threads that simply read like "I just got one and its great" since they tell you they'll send you a t-shirt if you put of positive reviews on message boards and send them a link. There is nothing wrong with discussing the product.

Tell all your clients to get this watch. It's really a great watch, but unfortunately I don't get a free shirt for promoting it.
