How To: Use Cronometer's Timestamps (Gold Feature)

Upgrading to Gold will grant you access to our Timestamps feature, letting you set the time for any piece of data you log on Cronometer, including foods, exercise and biometrics.

Read on to learn how to use and leverage Timestamps.

How To Use Timestamps

First of all, if you haven’t already, upgrade to Cronometer Gold. Then, add a food, exercise or biometric as you normally would. Once your entry is selected, the Timestamp will automatically be set to the current time, but you can edit this here before adding to your Diary.

Once added to your Diary, you can click on the entry to edit the Timestamp. 

On the web app, you can double click on the Timestamp to edit.

Sort All Entries By Time

You can easily sort all of your Diary entries by time.

On mobile, tap Diary > (three dot) icon > Sort All Entries By Time

On web, click Diary > (three dot) icon > Sort All By Time

Leveraging Timestamps On Charts

Now that your food, exercise and biometrics entries all have Timestamps, you can now get deeper insights from your Charts. Read below for a few different ways you can leverage this.

Weight Fluctuations

If you want to see how your weight fluctuates throughout the day, weigh yourself in time intervals and log a weight biometric using the correct Timestamp. You can then check your weight Chart to visualize the ups and downs.

If you want to see if anything in particular is causing these fluctuations, create a Custom Chart plotting your weight against nutrient intake, exercise or any other biometric.

Blood Glucose

If you want to see how your blood glucose fluctuates throughout the day, log a biometric for blood glucose using the correct Timestamp. You can then create a Chart for that biometric to visualize the ups and downs.

If you want to see if anything in particular is causing these fluctuations, create a Custom Chart plotting your blood glucose against carb or sugar intake, exercise or any other biometric.

Ketone Levels

If you want to see how your ketone levels fluctuate throughout the day, log a ketone biometric using the correct Timestamp. You can then create a Chart for that biometric to visualize the ups and downs.

If you want to see if anything in particular is causing these fluctuations, create a Custom Chart plotting your ketones against carb or sugar intake, exercise or any other biometric.
