Each of the timer editors have common properties. You can read more about these at Common Properties.
The compound timer is a special type of timer that is used to combine several timers into one big timer.
The compound timer works in a similar way to the circuit/tabata timer except it takes a list of timers rather than exercises. All the intervals of the sub-timer will be performed before moving to the next sub-timer.
The compound timer comes with some optional conveniences allowing you to:
- Repeat the list of sub-timers a defined number of times.
- Separate the sub-timers with a rest interval.
- Separate each repeat of the list with a different rest interval.
- Prepend a warm-up interval at the start of the timer.
- Append a cool-down interval at the end of the timer.
Number of Cycles
The number of times to repeat the list of sub-timers.
The list of sub-timers to be performed within the workout. Tapping on an item within the list will take you to the appropriate timer editor where you can update the values of the timer.
Adding a Sub-Timer
Add Sub-Timer Button
You can add a new sub-timer to the list by tapping the Add Sub-Timer button at the bottom of the list.
Using Copy & Paste
While it is possible to create all the sub-timers within the editor, we recommend that you create the individual timers in a separate folder first, and then copy & paste the timers into the compound timer in one go.
If you want to make changes to the sub-timers it's often easier to make changes in the original timers, and then create a new compound timer by copying & pasting the sub-timers again.
Sub-timers that are copied into the compound timer are not linked to the original timer. Any changes made either to the original timer, or the sub-timer within the compound timer will not affect the other.
Drag and Drop
You can move a sub-timer by tapping and holding the drag handle (≡) on the right of the row and then moving the sub-timer to the desired location.
Cut & Paste
It's possible to move many sub-timers at once using the cut & paste controls.
First copy the sub-timers by selecting the ones you want to move in the order you would like them to reappear. You do this by tapping the circle on the left of the row. The tap the Cut or Copy buttons from toolbar (you may need to close the keyboard to see this).
Next you can either paste the sub-timers at the bottom of the list by tapping the paste button from the toolbar. Or you may paste the sub-timer beneath a particular sub-timer by tapping and holding the sub-timer and then selecting the Paste option from the popup menu.
To delete a sub-timer you should first select the sub-timer you want to delete by tapping the circle on the left of the row. Then tap the Cut button from the toolbar (you may need to close the keyboard to see this).
Rest Between Sub-Timers
An interval that will be added between sub-timers if it has a valid duration. This interval will also be added between repeats of the sub-timer list if the Rest Between Cycles interval does not have a valid duration.
Rest Between Cycles
An interval that will be added between repeats of the sub-timer list if it has a valid duration.
An interval that will be added to the start of the timer if it has a valid duration.
An interval that will be added to the end of the timer if it has a valid duration.
