Ratings and Reviews
I run the shot clock for a NCAA D3 school. Our shot clock / scoreboard system locked up during the Women’s game and the officials decided to continue the game with me using a stopwatch and the PA announcer announcing the times as the game went on. Unfortunately there wasn’t an extra stopwatch to use, so I had to use the stopwatch my iPhone. We made it through the Women’s game, but I struggled to keep up since my stopwatch app counts up and a shot clock counts down (my math skills are terribly slow), and also keep an eye on whether the ball hit the rim / flange or not. Before the Men’s game started, I found this app. It was unbelievable how smooth the Men’s game went with using this app. I was able to easily let the PA announcer / officials know how much time was left, quickly reset to 30 or 20 seconds, and also recall the last time. This app actually worked a lot better than our normal shot clock! Even though I believe the NCAA rule book says you can’t use a mobile device for timing (desperate times!), I highly recommend this app to anyone who needs to run an NCAA shot clock.

Shot Clock App Introduction / Background
One of my hobbies is basketball and I am a qualified basketball referee. For a long time Shot Clocks used to be 30 seconds, then they became 24 seconds and then recently either 24 or 14 seconds
This change under FIBA rules in 2014/2015 season mean that a shot clock reset for an offensive rebound (for example) is 14 seconds only, while a defensive rebound provides a 24 second clock. This causes a problem for a number of existing shot clocks that are set only for a single time setting.
Shot clocks are also rarely seen at local league games due to the cost of the equipment making it hard for new table officials to get experience of doing this duty.
My solution to costly equipment and need to have two reset times was to create a new application that turns your device into a Basketball Shot Clock.
Updated Aug 2015: Android and iOS links above and Windows and Mac OS X available too..
There are two applications. The Timer and Screen.
- Basketball Shot Clock – Timer
- Basketball Shot Clock – Screen
The Timer application is used by the table to run the shot clock, the Screen application turns your Android TV, phone or tablet into a remote display to replace your existing shot clock.

How the Shot Clock Apps work together?
First, make sure the devices running each app are connected to the same WiFi network.
The Timer (App 1 above), is used to manage the Shot Clock. There is then an optional remote display (App 2 above) that can be used on Android Phone, Tablet, TV, PCs etc to show the Clock at court side.
As long as all the apps are connected to the same network, the screens will auto discover the Timer application (as long as the ports used are not blocked: 2020 to 2040)
If you want, you can also have each team have their own device that is connected, you don’t need to be limited to just two screens at court side.
Fitting your device
As there are so many different sized devices, you can scale the font using the application options. Hint – for the best result, set the time on the Timer application to a value just under 10 seconds and then adjust the display.
Running multiple courts
If you want to run more than 1 Shot Clock Timer on the same network, then you should change the password in the app settings. This will enable the Timer App to ensure only the correct screens find and are able to connect to it.
The application is built using Embarcadero Delphi. This is why its available for Android, Windows, Mac OS X and iOS (or will be once I have my apple account sorted). The auto discovery is managed through a cool technology called App Tethering with the data passed using standard resources that are mirrored from the main application.
ballistic calculator on your wrist
Home Gear Gadgets Garmin Tactix Delta watch: ballistic calculator on your wrist
shooting. They not only show the time and many other useful data, but also function as a ballistic calculator and display personalized ballistic data in real time.
By Sean Utley
An important aspect of preparing for any shooting competition is being patient and attentive. After all, there are many things to consider, as well as to prepare the equipment, pack it, check, double-check – and all this with the utmost care. And if you have any tools at hand that will help in this matter, great. And the wrist watch Garmin Tactix Delta Solar is just such.
A bit of history
Garmin’s watch line is generally quite a success. But as an shooter, popularity is not so important to me, but the presence of various useful functions. The Apple watch, for example, is good enough at this – a bunch of different applications, convenience and compactness. But Garmin is practically not inferior to them in this. With their help, you can track the time of training, count steps, evaluate the pulse and do a bunch of other useful things. As for the other “ Survival Watches ” like the G-Shock, MTM and luminox lines, they tend to focus more on strength and endurance rather than complex extra features. Well, in fact, that’s all that people usually take with them to the shooting range for business.
A complete ballistics calculator on the wrist is not a new idea. The 5.11 tactical company recently released something similar to the market. And although I did not have personal experience using their products, according to rumors, these watches were not very accurate and comfortable.
As for Garmin, a couple of years ago they also released their “ballistic wrist calculator”. But it was rather bulky, not very comfortable for daily wear and ate batteries like crazy. It was also difficult to navigate. Although the set of functions was already impressive at that time – gps, a ballistic calculator, the ability to synchronize with a smartphone, and much more. But in Tactix Delta, the developers went even further.
Tactix Delta is a heavy and durable watch. I like the way they feel on the wrist. Especially compared to the Apple watch, which you are constantly afraid of breaking by accidentally hooking it on a wall or a doorknob. And Tactix Delta, according to the specifications, meet military standards for durability.
They are also equipped with a solar charger which greatly extends battery life in the field. Plus a host of different features, from compatibility with music apps to a fitness tracker. But this does not surprise us.
But a full-fledged ballistic calculator in the form of the Applied Ballistics application – yes. Simply because this thing is cooler than all its competitors and offers something that they cannot afford. This app was already on the Garmin 701, but the Tactix Delta takes it to the next level thanks to the upgraded sensors on the watch.
But how accurate is Applied Ballistics within the Tactix Delta? I decided to check out this application personally. And although I was new to using this thing, they helped me. My comrade Chase Stroud, who had long since dealt with AB, used this watch to feed me the data I needed while I was on the firing line.
I compared what I got from him with information from other similar devices such as the Kestrel and even with my manual calculation of ballistics. And it turned out that with data from Garmin products, I felt most comfortable. Except that there were some difficulties when firing rifles and when taking into account strong winds at long distances. Alas, here the Tactix Delta could only make adjustments based on your personal wind assessment. As, however, and other ballistic calculators.
And yes, you are personally responsible for what data you enter during these hours. Although there are some automatic settings, a lot depends on you. It is advisable to provide detailed information about the weapon used, including the name and some of its properties, such as muzzle velocity, barrel twist, sight height offset, etc.
In addition, you can enter environmental information such as temperature and humidity. And the pressure in this watch is measured automatically.
But they also have one small minus. Minus 1400 dollars from your account. Which immediately makes their use not as pleasant and comfortable as we would like.
Garmin Tactix Delta is a tool for serious shooters
The Garmin Tactix Delta Solar is a powerful tool for tactical and precision shooting enthusiasts who can always benefit from some help with ballistics calculations. And it’s one of the best options currently available, as it not only functions well, it has decent battery life and a number of extra features as well. And it is significantly better than other smart devices, even despite its recommended price.
