This timer can be used for planning on extremely small time-scales (very usefull for exams)


it is pretty cool but doesn't explain which is which

Cool Clock Design!

I'm not sure why but I like this, it's interesting in that it's set up like a timepiece (clock) and seems to keep time consistently like any good clock should but it doesn't represent conventional time keeping as we commonly use it.
However, even though those are the things I like about it, the lack of how relatable those things are to standard time is why this isn't all that useful.
As best I can tell, the largest and inner most "time tracker" or the second hand keeps track of 6 seconds per section and with 6 sections it totals 36 seconds, the next and middle "hand" keeps track of 6 of those making a total of 216 seconds, the last one keeps a time of just over 21 minutes. Did I get that right? (my math almost never right)

Now don't get me wrong, I like it, it's just that the problems are..
#1: I can't really think of anything to time that's just over twenty minutes.
#2: it doesn't offer any way to relate time from the timer to conventional time like telling us how much standard time has passed.
#3: I kind of wish you had used a different primary number, it just doesn't seem to add up quite right with six (but then again this is my math we're talking about, so..)
