A timer is a specialized type of clock for measuring time intervals. A timer which counts upwards from zero for measuring elapsed time is often called a stopwatch, a device which counts down from a specified time interval is more usually called a timer. A simple example is an hourglass. Some timers sound an audible indication that the time interval has expired. Time switches, timing mechanisms which activate a switch, are sometimes called "timers". Timers and time switches may be free-standing or incorporated into appliances and machines. Their operating mechanism may be mechanical, electromechanical, or purely electronic. Timing functionality can be provided by software, typically in a computer; the program is often called a "timer".
