This Competitor Pace Clock is ideal for timing your swim stroke at the pool or pacing your aerobics routine at the gym because it’s easily visible and transportable. With its sturdy handle and pedestal type base, you can move this clock wherever you need it most. The large numbers on the Pace Clock makes it easy to see even from across the room. The Competitor Pace Clock is durable to wear and tear because it is crafted from polyethylene, a similar plastic compound that is also used to make bullet proof vests. The minute and secondhand are rust proof because they are composed of tempered aluminum and covered by a clear Plexiglas lens. Another bonus is that the Competitor Pace Clock only takes one “AA” battery to run.
