• 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.

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.
