THE BEST STOPWATCHES FOR KARTING (FROM THE BASIC MODEL TO THE MOST COMPLETE MODEL)

11 January 2022

There is no point trying to hide behind a finger, all the actions, costs and hours spent on a kart have a single, precise goal: to lower your lap time. And when it comes to time, in motorsport, there is only one judge: the stopwatch. We are not talking about the one available in the data acquisition system that is installed on the steering wheel of a kart, but about the classic manual stopwatch. Excellent for monitoring opponents or very useful for your mechanic who can “follow” you from the side of the track. To choose the right tool (reliable, intuitive and, if necessary, resistant) we have come to your rescue, trying to present the best manual digital stopwatches, designed specifically for karting. For each device we have highlighted some “key” features: power source, possibility to operate simultaneous timing of multiple drivers, type of data that can be recorded, number of sessions that can be saved, screen size, price … It’s your choice!

PRISMA THE MULTI-PILOT DIGITAL STOPWATCH WITH SPLIT TIMES

Why choose a Prisma stopwatch?

  • Intuitive: 8 keys on two columns that identify their functionality. The “L” keys allow you to save the lap times of the selected driver, while the “S” keys are used for split times.
  • Readable: the large and backlit display allows you to read the data clearly in any lighting situation.
  • Huge memory: up to 840 lap times and 7,560 split times can be saved in 7 sessions. In addition, the following are recorded for each session: date, time and air temperature (it is the only one that provides the latter).
  • Resistant: the Prisma stopwatch is designed for track activity. Resistant to splashes of water (IP55 certification), it can also be equipped with a clip to attach it to trousers and always have it at hand.
  • – Versatile: it can be set in 3 different languages (Italian, English and French).

 

What makes the Prisma stopwatch unique?

  • Of the high-end devices on the market, the Prisma stopwatch is the cheapest. Let’s be clear, we are still talking about 140 Euros, but saving has never hurt anyone.
