Cat in a Pot

    Looking for recommendations for a simple, easy to use/set sports watch that is waterproof and has an alarm function (i.e., can set the alarm to go off every 20 min or whatever).  I don't want to spend a lot of money since I will only using this when running races and don't care about tracking mileage.  Just need the time and the ability to set an alarm to go off repeatedly until I tell it to stop. I don't want to have to remember to hit a button to make the timer start working again.  Just want the alarm to go off, I hit a button, and 20 minutes later it goes off again - rinse and repeat for the next 8 to 12 hours.

     

    Thanks ~

            I've been looking at these.  So they do have a continual timer, one that goes off repeatedly however often you need it to until you make it stop?

              I think I was able to set interval beeps, but I told it "do it 300 times"  (I stopped it before it was done)

                  My favorite is the Casio WS-110H Marathon.

                  It was the only watch that I found with dual countdown timers to the second.

                  I think mine was less than $50 on Ebay.  They appear to have gone up in price.

                  Here is a better price on Amazon.
