One might be doing a stress test. When you're going all out there's no way you
want to check your monitor. Set it to record 300 sec. do your test and check
the results afterwards.
You'll notice the record feature is set to only small increments (5min. max).
This would probably mean you are using it for short distances when checking
your monitor is not practical.
I'm sure many people here will have many other sugestions for use. Chances
are, if you don't know what it's for, you probably won't have much use for
