    Quick-start and quick-glance for timer/stopwatch

    Every electronic watch that I've had (Casio or Timex) required at least 2 clicks to start the stop watch and usually there's a delay.

    Is there a model of an electronic watch that would function more like a chronograph watch - if I need to start a timer I just press one button and I can always see the time passed right next to the current time on the main display, no toggling of modes.

    The Rangeman does that! One of the buttons will bring you directly to stopwatch mode and start it, and you can stay in the mode cause the time is displayed, a bit pricey though.

    Awesome! That looks exactly like the feature I need. Now is there another watch on the market that has the same feature but does not look like a living and breathing Transformer on my wrist? I don't think I will need this triple-shock functionality on during my regular work day.

    Not really, the GD-350 has a 1 press Timer, not a Stopwatch. You need to set the amount of time you need to count down to before hand, so every time you press the quick access button it will count down to that amount. And yes, I do think the 1 press Stopwatch in the GW-9400 Rangeman makes a bit more sense.
    Rocat and Kev55 like this.

    The only recent Casio product I can think of is the STW-1000, that may have the 1 press Stopwatch. It's a Japanese only product, so you may need to import it. However, I doubt it can display the main time and stopwatch simultaneously.

    Just use google translate for the page. STW-1000-1BJF - CASIO JAPAN
