Cubing is a popular puzzle game that requires precision and accuracy. It is a mental sport where competitors try to solve the puzzle in the least amount of time. In order to do this, they use a cubing timer.
This timer is endorsed by the World Cubing Association and used in official competitions. It has an accurate, durable design and is compatible with speed stacks mats. It also has power, save, and reset buttons that are easily accessible.
Stackmat G5 timer
Choosing the right timer for your speed cubing needs depends on several factors, including accuracy, size and portability, durability, and price. You also want to consider whether the timer has additional features like storing solve times or connecting to your computer for data analysis.
Endorsed by the World Sport Stacking Association, this speed stacking mat combines a detachable precision Competition Timer accurate to 0.001 with super sensitive touch pads and an “optimum” stacking surface. It has two operation modes – 4-Pad (for stacking) and 2-Pad (for speed cubing). A hold-feature on the RESET and POWER buttons prevents loss of timing when a slammed timer is activated. The TD cord plugs in underneath the timer so it can’t get in the way or accidently unplugged.
Stackmat G4 timer
If you’re serious about speed cubing or stacking, you need a good timer. These devices help you measure your performance and identify areas for improvement, so you can make better decisions when practicing algorithms. These timers can also be used at competitions to prevent judges from making mistakes during a run.
A few months ago, Jeremy posted an article about his progress in connecting a stackmat to his phone using an Arduino. He discovered that different phones filter the audio signal in different ways, so getting it to work on all phones was a challenge. He ended up having to design a custom PCB to shift the signals to frequencies that phones don’t filter.
Stackmat G3 timer
Unlike the GAN Halo timer, which uses infrared sensors, this timer has a new snap-in button system that eliminates the possibility of it being knocked off the mat. It also has a USB C rechargeable battery and is compatible with the CubeStation mobile app.
This high-quality cube timer is designed to be used in WCA competitions. It is accurate to a thousandth of a second, can be mounted on the SpeedStacks mat and connected to a tournament display. It also has a hold feature on the RESET and POWER buttons so that they can’t be accidentally slammed and lost. Its compact design makes it easy to carry and use.
Stackmat G2 timer
A good speed cube mat and timer are essential for any cubing enthusiast. These tools allow players to emulate the feeling of an official World Sport Stacking Association competition, while also protecting their cubes and cubing surfaces from damage.
This package combines the Speed Stacks StackMat and a detachable precision competition timer that is approved for sanctioned WSSA events. It features a three-decimal place accuracy and two operation modes. The curved and angled touch pads provide enhanced ergonomics and sensitivity. The hold-feature on the RESET and POWER buttons prevents loss of times. The Tournament Display cord plugs in underneath the timer, eliminating accidental unplugging.
Stackmat G1 timer
Winner of the Family Choice Award, this Speed Stacks StackMat with Timer is designed to give users a feel for the experience of participating in a world-class sport stacking competition. It’s the official precision timer of the World Cup Stacking Association and includes an easy-to-use data port for connecting to Tournament Displays. It also has two operation modes and features a new snap-in G5 button system that eliminates timers getting knocked off inadvertently. Its hold-feature on the RESET and POWER buttons prevents lost times when they’re slammed. It has a curved design and touch pads that tilt towards the middle for greater sensitivity. Includes 2 AAA batteries.
Qiyi Magic Cube Timer
The Qiyi Magic Cube Timer is a top-quality cube timer. It has a large screen and is very accurate, measuring to a hundredth of a second. It also works on batteries and has a power and reset switch that are easy to access. It has sensor copper that provides sensitive hand touch control and an automatic score calculation design.
If you’re serious about speed cubing, it’s important to have a good Cube Timer to measure your solve times and improve your algorithms. Timers help you determine where your performance can be improved, and are used at championships and other events. They are also useful for practice sessions and training.
