Feature list

The Match Select menu is used to choose which match times will be available to select in the the main timer display. This provides flexibility to customise the list to the shooters individual needs. For example:-

  • a shooter may only want to display times from the current match being shot to avoid any possibility of selecting the wrong time or
  • a shooter does not shoot some of the matches so these times can be hidden from view.

The following matches and times are available to be selected:-

  • Bullseye – 600 (10 mins), 20, 10 seconds
  • ISSF 50m – 900 (15 mins) seconds
  • ISSF 25m – 300, 150, 20, 10, 8, 6, 4, 3×5 seconds
  • NPA Police Pistol 1 (PP1) – 120, 6 x 2 seconds
  • NPA Police Pistol 2 (PP2) – 180, 120, 5 seconds
  • NPA Police Pistol 3/4 (PP3/4) – 100, 5×2, 3×2 seconds
  • NPA Super Magnum – 120, 3×3, 5×2 seconds
  • NPA – 15, 10, 6, 3×3 seconds
  • NPA Carry / Pocket – 15, 10, 8, 3×2 seconds
  • Service – 165, 35, 15, 8, 6, 4 & 3 seconds
  • Service 25 – 210, 25, 6 & 4 seconds
  • WA1500 – 165, 90, 35, 20 & 12 seconds
  • WA48 – 90, 20 & 8 seconds

Quickly enable or disable features such as Sound (and Vibration in versions earlier than v2.26) that should not be used in competition. 

Plus Mode allows the shooter to start the wristMT timer before the commencement of match firing. This provides the shooter with two key benefits. Firstly, the shooter can return their attention to the match well in advance of match firing commencing. Secondly, the shooter is not wasting match time by first starting the timer then moving to draw the firearm from the holster. This is particularly beneficial in the shorter timed stages where there is no time to loose.

There are two Plus Modes available – Plus7 and Plus3.

  • Plus7 is designed to allow shooters to start the timer as targets turn to face away for the standard 7 second period. As the name implies, Plus7 adds a seperate 7 second countdown before starting the main match timer.
  • Plus3 is similar to Plus7 but is aimed at shooters who don’t use turning targets. In Plus3 mode the additional countdown period is 3 seconds and allows shooters to start the timer once the range officer gives the command “the line is ready” or similar.
  • Plus Mode can be disabled if not required.

Icons on the display show if Plus Mode is active. By default, the timer digits also change colour when the timer is in the Plus Mode countdown period. This colour can be customised in the settings. 

Full Screen Timer

wristMT is designed to use very large fonts to ensure the display is easily readable on the range.  The normal timer font size is the maximum possible that allows 3 digit timer values to fit on the display.

When enabled, full screen mode removes the watch time and Icons from the display and shows the timer value in an even larger font size. With text this large it is only possible to display a maximum of two digits on the display (eg: Timer Values between 0 and 99 seconds). 

The normal timer display and font will be used when the timer value is greater than 99 seconds . The display will automatically change to the larger font size and full screen view when the timer value drops to 99 seconds.

Full screen mode is only active while the timer is running.

Play a Chirp Sound as follows:-

  • Plus Mode Off: When the timer countdown reaches zero (0)
  • Plus Mode On: When the match timer starts (ie: after the 3/7 second plus mode period), and when the timer countdown reaches zero (o)

Note: Sound needs to be enabled globally in the watch settings. Check Settings->System->Sounds->Alert Tones is set to On if you cannot hear any sounds in wristMT

Vibrate the watch as follows:-

  • Plus Mode Off: When the timer countdown reaches zero (0)
  • Plus Mode On: When the match timer starts (ie: after the 3/7 second plus mode period), and when the timer countdown reaches zero (o)

Note: Vibration needs to be enabled globally in the watch settings. Check Settings->System->Sounds->Vibration is set to On if wristMT does not vibrate

Sets the duration of audible and vibration alerts to be either Long (approx 1 second) or Short (approx 0.5 seconds).

wristMT can be configured to alert the user via sound and/or vibration when position changes and reloads should occur in multi-position stages.

By default, alerts are configured to occur at evenly spaced intervals however this can be customised. (See: Customising Position Change Alerts) 

Example: The WA1500 165 second series requires the shooter to shoot 24 shots in four (4) different positions. The default alerts are evenly spaced and will occur as follows :-

  • Alert 1 – 124 seconds
  • Alert 2 – 83 seconds
  • Alert 3 – 41 seconds
  • Alert 4 – 10 seconds

Alert 4 is a warning that the stage is almost over and there are only 10 seconds to go.

Default Alert Intervals

  • 210 Second Stage – 168, 126,84,42,10
  • 165 Second Stage – 124, 83, 41, 10
  • 90 Second Stage – 60, 30, 10
  • 35 Second Stage – 18
  • 25 Second Stage – 13
  • 20 Second Stage – 10

Note: The alert times are rounded to the nearest whole second.

The settings menu includes an option to reset alerts to the default values if they have been customised.

Enabling this option will keep the watch’s backlight on while the timer is running. The backlight will timeout as per normal if the timer is stopped or reset to avoid draining the battery.

Enabling Activity Recording allows the application to record metrics such as Heart Rate & Steps taken.

See Garmin Connect Activities for more information.
