timing sports such as: Marathons or Swimming competitions. With these objects coaches can time the performers in the competition. Sports! Olympics! In the Kitchen Stopwatches are used in cooking to tell how
much time has passed so that nothing cooks
too long and for other reasons!

for many reasons. One of the reasons
is for shutting off electricity (while owners are away) with modifed stop-
watches!

Stopwatches have impacted economic life by giving jobs to people who work to invent these products. When stopwatches were created they marketed them and whole industries were created to make stopwatches and other sports goods. Stopwatches link to economics because it has created different jobs for people all over the world."When the TAG Heuer Mikrograph stopwatch was invented in 1916, it allowed the measurement of time with unprecedented accuracy--down to 1/100 second. This precision led to major changes in the sports world, including records such as the world's first sub-4-minute mile by the U.K.'s Roger Bannister (3:59.4, May 6, 1954). Digital stopwatches accurate to 1/1000 second debuted in 1971."

Stopwatches have changed social life by creating
things that are negative and positive. For example if someones favorite runner lost to your neighbors favorite runner by a 800th of a second, this create arguments between the two neighbors. A positive example is if two neighbors like the same runner and he beat another runner by a 500th of a second they can have a lot of positive discussions. This is a photo of a stopwatch!
