Time Between Stretches

This is how many minutes you want between each stretch break. Clicking "Stretch Now" or "Reset" will reset the clock to this number.

We recommend 60-minutes or less.

Play Intro Sound

When the Time Between Stretches (see above) has been reached, if this box is checked, StretchClock will play an audio reminder chime that let's you know it is time for your break.

If the box is not checked, StrethClock will not play the audio reminder chime.

Ask Before Stretching

When the Time Between Stretches (see above) has been reached, if this box is checked, StretchClock will ask you if you would like to stretch.

If the box is not checked, and the timer reaches zero, StretchClock will automatically play a random stretch video from your favorites list.

Show stretchclock in the add-on bar

This shows or hides the stretchclock controls in your firefox add-on bar (see below)


Use the schedule to make StretchClock work only when you work. When you are not working StretchClock goes to sleep.

Hear what others are saying about StretchClock

"Sitting will kill you - do some exercises"

The Washington Post

"Thankfully, a friend sent this solution along. Created by a computer programmer, the Stretch Clock is a downloadable alarm program that alerts you every hour, telling you when its time to get up from your seat and do a little body restoration work..."

"While the saving your life part is great, the best aspect of the Stretch Clock is the series of videos teaching you how to stretch."

Melissa Bell, The Washington Post



StretchClock Rocks!  Rated 5 out of 5 stars by Lakewood

StretchClock has it all- it's funny, healthy, relaxing, easy to use, and does all the mundane stuff for you! I spend hours at my desk on the computer each day. StretchClock let's me know every hour "it's time to get up and stretch" and I feel better every time. I have enjoyed using it so much, that everyone on my team has started using it, too.



That feels better!   -  Rated 5 out of 5 stars by Sarah C.

"This little gadget makes a world of difference to my poor, cramped shoulders, wrists, back... everything!

The trees, water and ambient birdsong as you stretch for a minute gives your mind a refreshing break, too! Thank you for StretchClock! So worth the minute it takes!"



Indispensible...  * - Rated 5 out of 5 stars by Sharif A.

"What did I do before this gadget? Sit around cramped all day... I have mine set on 30 minutes, which feels completely intrusive... which is great! Aren't YOU more important than whatever it is that you're working on?"



Brilliant! * Rated 5 out of 5 stars by rb52

Really, really good. Only problem is I want to be where he is and not at my desk!


StretchClock. It's about time! * Rated 5 out of 5 stars by Steven H.
