I used it to make an approx. of my time in between waypoints or check points based on terrain and distances. For me, it helped me pace myself even though it might not make sense to some people.

and it's not stupid... I am sure I am way off the mark. This is how I used it.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, it was there to make sure I didn't miss the cut off time for dinner!!!
The race is long and, in the end, it's only with yourself...
