Cons

Conclusion and download link

First off, let me say if you have a mobile device, using it for alarm, timer, and stopwatch purposes is a lot more user-friendly than your desktop or laptop. However, if you really need an alarm clock, timer, or stopwatch for your desktop or laptop, Harmony Hallow Cool Timer is actually a very good option; it isn’t perfect, but it is feature-filled and it has a free version you can use or try if you don’t want to pay for the paid version. Check it out… but just be watchful of the crapware landmine you will encounter during installation.
