It's been asked so many times. Every other watch seems to have it (at least every Casio... :-p ) It's probably a minor tweak. (Works in timer mode, so why not in stopwatch mode?)
Pretty please? :-D
That's a workaround, but not exactly what we want. It's strange that the countdown timer page can show the time, while the stopwatch can't.
(Also, did anyone notice the stop and go symbols are used differently for workouts and the stopwatch? In one case they show the current state - stopped or running - in one the button function.)
