    .
    Personally, I don't like to dim the screen, I like to turn it off because I run more than 5 seconds. But if you're doing something relatively quick and you don't want to actually turn the screen off, that's fine. You can do that with your stopwatch.

Depending on what you're doing or how you're doing it, you may have a school function or university function where it's important for you to share these times with other people.
