L'outil idéal pour assurer le pilotage séquentiel et sonore des exercices et dégager ainsi l’entraîneur des fastidieux coups de sifflets, afin qu'il puisse se consacrer exclusivement à l'animation de sa séance sans perdre de vue ses athlètes en action.
Sportbeeper, The tool for the reathletisation phase

The second generation of the Sportbeeper, the Sportbeeper PRO, represents a significant step forward compared to its predecessor, incorporating numerous improvements that make it an even more powerful tool adapted to the needs of users. Among these improvements, the integration of the 3.6 Gacon timer stands out as a major innovation that deserves special attention.

1. SportBeeper’s Spectacular Advancements

  • Larger screen: One of the first improvements that users will notice is the screen size, which has been enlarged to provide better visibility and an improved user experience. A larger screen makes it easier for users to view information and settings, even outdoors or in varying light conditions.
  • Intuitive Control Panel: The Sportbeeper PRO’s control panel has been redesigned to provide a more intuitive and user-friendly interface. The buttons and controls have been arranged in a way that makes it easy to navigate and configure settings, allowing users to get the most out of their device without any extra effort.
  • Tab-odometer: The Tabulometer is a new feature that allows users to track their distance covered during training. This feature is especially useful for running, walking, or cycling activities, where distance is a key indicator of performance and progress.
  • Gacon 3.6 Clocker: The integration of the 3.6 Gacon timer represents a major step forward in the scheduling and management of training sessions. This feature allows users to program precise time intervals, set custom exercise sequences, and control the pace and intensity of their workout with exceptional accuracy.

We’re going to deal with the latter feature:

2.The Clocker 3.6

The 3.6 timer, an invention of Georges Gacon, represents a major advance in the field of sports training, offering a precise and efficient solution to control the speed of movement of athletes. Initially designed to meet the specific needs of players’ re-athletic phases, this tool has proven to be a valuable asset in various training and physical preparation contexts.

One of the key features of the 3.6 timer is its ability to allow players to run at a constant speed. By setting a pre-set speed, athletes can train to maintain a steady pace, which is essential for improving endurance, endurance, and the quality of athletic performance. This characteristic is particularly beneficial during the re-athletic phases, where it is crucial to control and progress in a gradual manner in the return to physical activity after an injury.

In addition, the tab-odometer button associated with the 3.6 timer is an essential complement for the implementation and management of exercises. By displaying information such as the interval between studs, the total distance to be travelled, and the number of pedestals to be installed, the tab-odometer simplifies and facilitates the planning and execution of training sessions. In addition, the spacing between the cones, which corresponds to the speed in km/h, allows coaches and athletes to accurately calibrate exercise parameters according to specific training goals.

Beforehand, you need to organize several lanes with different speeds. During the re-athletic phase, you will make the player start at a speed that is quite low for his level. You will make him change lanes and therefore increase in speed little by little. You can also move him back down the corridor if you see that he is in trouble.

Installation is relatively simple. This is because the gap between the cones is the speed at which your athlete runs.

For example, for an effort of 10 seconds at 12 km/h, there are 2 integer intervals of 12 meters or 24 meters and a total distance of 33.3 meters which gives a final interval of 9.3 meters.


As with the other intermittents, you can move the board up or down to get the speed you want.
