Fastime 9 Stroke Rate Stopwatch

The Fastime 9X is a 600-lap memory, triple display stopwatch with stroke rate function. It is aimed at professional swimming and rowing coaches and timekeepers. The Fastime 9X can now pair with your smartphone via the Merun app allowing coaches to create athlete profiles, data sharing and video and photo capture. The Fastime 9X lets the user choose whether the memory recall shows first to last or last to first. 

Functions of the Fastime 9X Stopwatch


Triple display showing cumulative running time, cumulative lap and split times up to 10 hours, with accuracy to 1/100th of a second.


The stopwatch has a segregated memory that allows you to display the best, slowest and average lap time for each period.


When paired with the app you phone can take photos or videos of the lap split, and check the coaches and athletes’ scores, ranking, speed and pace. 


Stroke Rate

Measure three events to return the rate per minute. It does this by measuring a sample of 3 strokes or actions and returning a frequency or rate per minute. Press the start button to begin measuring the stroke rate. Display counts down from 180. Press again after 3 strokes and the display shows the rate per minute


Environment Temperature and Pulse Measurement


The watch displays the environment temperature (between -40°C and 60°C). You can also measure the user’s pulse on the stopwatch between 30 and 240 beats per minute.


Countdown Timer


Two countdown timers are pre-settable with 9 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds each. These dual countdown timers can be linked if required.




You can pre-set the pacer on the stopwatch from between 5 beeps/minute and 320 beeps/minute in units of 5, and display the frequency, beeps and time.


Time of Day and Alarm function
A fairly self-explanatory setting - it allows the stopwatch to display the current time.

Fastime 9 Stroke Rate Stopwatch Reviews

The Fastime 9X has 7 review(s) with an average rating of 4.5 stars out of 5

Great watch, I use it for Swim Club and love it. It is light weight and very easy to read the numbers.

I bought the 09 strictly as a present for a young american boy, whom I expect to become a World Champion in Serbia this summer. The stroke facility will improve his understanding of the changes in his variable pitch mechanism of his model aircraft during each of his six flights. I will then be buying for myself another one of your superbly ergonomic timers. Allan Weighell FSMAE UK Junior Team Manager

It’s a reasonably priced stopwatch, which is perfect for the sports I intend to use it with: swimming. It can measure times, both lap and split, and the stroke rate of the swimmer can easily be measured. A slight disadvantage is that the FT9 will not save the stroke rates, so you have to write it down immediately or just remember the numbers (but that is not to be expected from a stopwatch in this price range, I think). Switching between time menu and stroke rate menu is very easy and fast (sometimes you have to run through a lot of other menus, but that is not the case here), and the time will continue to run when measuring stroke rates. The only reason why it doesn’t get 5 stars, is that a decent carrying case is not provided within this price.

The Fastime 9 is an excellent stopwatch, well worth the money. It is easy to set, understand and use. My watch will be used mainly for lab work. It is sturdy, accurate, versatile and the display is sharp. It handles all my needs with ease. I would recommend it to any serious user.
