    Seconds Stopwatch

    take one second and divide it into one hundred units. Each unit is 1/100 (th) of a second. i.e. when 100 of those pass it equals one second. On the stopwatch you'll see the seconds in a bit larger numbers than the 1/100 numbers.

    Here is an example online:


    It just means a stopwatch showing the time in milliseconds...some stopwatches are not as accurate, and if a stopwatch can show the time in milliseconds, it's probably very good.

    It means it shows time also in micro second. 1second=100microsecond

    means more accuracy.

    It measure in thousandths of a second, such as most are MM:SS:XX, a thousandth one is MM:SS:XXX

    this would mean that the stop watch can show milliseconds making it much more precise.
