Time Between Stretches

This is how many minutes you want between each stretch break. Clicking "Stretch Now" or "Reset" will reset the clock to this number.

We recommend 60-minutes or less.

Play Intro Sound

When the Time Between Stretches (see above) has been reached, if this box is checked, StretchClock will play an audio reminder chime that let's you know it is time for your break.

If the box is not checked, StrethClock will not play the audio reminder chime.

Ask Before Stretching

If the box is not checked, StretchClock will automatically launch a random exercise video in your web browser.
