E-Tech Timer is a handy stopwatch and countdown timer with many innovative features such as the ability to save times and alert the user. E-Tech Timer has a clean interface as well as some great features, all wrapped up in a simple, lightweight package.

E-Tech Timer is lightweight and easy to use, integrated into Windows with a system tray icon, but best of all it's 100% free of charge, ad-free and open-source.

E-Tech Timer consists of two parts: a stopwatch and a countdown timer. The stopwatch helps you time your daily tasks, whilst the countdown timer is useful for making sure you don't go overtime.

Features of E-Tech Timer:

  • E-Tech Timer has a simple and easy-to-use interface with clearly-labelled buttons and comprehensive documentation. This makes sure that you know exactly what to do and you can start straight away.
  • Many useful functions are important in an application, especially a utility like E-Tech Timer. That's why we've included innovative functions to pause, save or change settings of E-Tech Timer.
  • E-Tech Timer is only as precise as you want it to be. If you want, E-Tech Timer can give you up to five digits after the seconds column. If that makes you feel like life is going too fast, though, you can hide those and just have the 1/10th second resolution.
  • In E-Tech Timer, you can save your current time, whether it be in the stopwatch or countdown timer, and restore it at a later date.
  • In both countdown stopwatch modes, you can choose from three alerts or in the stopwatch, no alert at all. You can specify a time for your alert to sound at, and also whether the timer should keep going after the alert.
  • In the stopwatch, you can specify a time to start at. You can also pause timing and start it again.
  • E-Tech Timer is extremely fast to install. It only takes a few seconds to download the ZIP file, extract it, and install E-Tech Timer.

E-Tech Timer is an open-source project, so you are more than welcome to download the source code and edit it as much as you want. We'd prefer to have people make suggestions rather than actually implementing features, however if you've made some significant changes, submit it by attaching a link in an email to

Please enjoy using E-Tech Timer. Remember that E-Tech Timer is free, so any help and feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
