I got one of these Sportcount Lap Rings for a gift and found it to be
great. It allows you to count laps by depressing a push button with
your thumb. At the end of your set you get total time, average time
and best lap. Unfortunately the quality is not all that good. The
first one I had was defective - the lcd display loosened in the housing
and the readout became illegible. The replacement I then got worked well
for four months and then the push button broke.
I like the idea of this thing, but after the problems I've had with
two of them, I'm not sure I'd give it a strong endor***t.
