PerfectScore Watch vs 180 Watch

I am debating buying an Lsat watch and was just wondering if anyone has any experience with either of the two. Is the 180 watch worth the extra money?

    The 180 watch has served me well and if I were you I'd hit up eBay or TLS over the next month as people sell theirs for cheap once they get scores back...

    I used the 180 watch for this test. And it was good but the sections were back to back with no pause (I heard from someone that there should be a 5min break between sections) so there were times that I didn't have the time to restart it. But overall I think it is worth it if you find a good price.

    There is no break between sections but there is more than enough time to reset the 180 watch after time is called... all you have to do is put down your pencil, push the two buttons and your watch is reset in under 5 seconds and then you can start it as soon as they say turn to the next section... that's why the 180 watch beats the competition IMO.

    okay I should specify - aside from aesthetically decent, it kept me on time & I was able to reset in the few seconds the proctor said begin the next section with no problem. definitely recommend it. i didn't wear the watch though, i kept it in my lap and it was fine

    I definitely recommend the 180 watch, and for sure ALWAYS practice with it even if you also use the 7Sage proctor app (don't just use the app by itself and expect to be on point with the watch during the test). This is so using the two buttons and resetting it in those few seconds are like second nature. And don't worry about the money, it will pay off 100 fold in your ability to stay on task during the test. It is no coincidence that I royally screwed up my timing on the one section that I forgot to set my watch until I noticed about 3 minutes in. If you always practice with it, it's less likely you'll forget like me lol

    The peace of mind it gives is worth the price alone.

    I wouldn't buy an LSAT-specific watch. I got a cheap analog Casio. $10. Takes less than a second to reset to X:25 between sections. When the big hand is vertical, time's up. I can also time the break! I reset to X:45.

    assumes people have fingernails long enough to facilitate adjustments. and i've ripped the mechanism out of one of these cheap casios without much force.

    180 watch all the way. I'll be selling mine around Oct 28th (hopefully).
