WatchMe is an excellent piece of freeware that serves very well when it comes to monitoring the time spent on your tasks. To say that it is a mere time-tracking application would be an understatement; with this single application, you get a stopwatch, a countdown timer, a timed alert generator, and even a task scheduler.

To get started, you need to only download and extract the app’s setup archive which is sized at nearly 0.3 MB. To run the app, simply open the EXE file which you extract from the archive – the app does not require any installation. You will find a ‘bare’ window like the in screenshot above; all timers will be set to zero and the tasks will have their default labels. You should begin by naming the tasks that you want to be timed through the application.

The alert task can execute a program or play a sound file after your specified time interval has passed. The alert can be bound to a timer which can be stopped at the time of the alert.

The app offers numerous other useful features as well such as exporting your timers to a CSV file. From various time formats that include milliseconds to letting users starting and stopping all timers collectively, WatchMe is one tiny app that is full of surprises.
