Top Score Watch

Frequently Asked Questions

Important Questions From Students and Parents 


Q: Can I use the Top Score Watch on the SAT, ACT, PSAT / NMSQT, and SAT Subject Tests?

Yes, the Top Score Watch meets all College Board and ACT, Inc. guidelines so you can use it on all of these tests.


Q: Does the Top Score Watch come with any accessories? 

Yes, the watch comes with a standardized test preparation kit that includes two number 2 pencils and a custom eraser that you can use on test day.


Q: Why is it better than a regular watch?

If you are serious about getting your best score on college entrance tests you need to master your timing on the tests. It's that simple. The SAT and ACT are timed exams with a limited amount of time per section and over 90% of test takers struggle with timing. By using a normal watch, you have to manually figure out how much time is left in each section and how much time has elapsed. The Top Score Watch eliminates these issues because you never have to worry about how much time is remaining in both the entire section or reading passages. Simply set the watch at the start of the section and you are good to go! With just a quick glance, you will know exactly how much time is left and/or used, which will save you several minutes of valuable test-time over the course of the exam and eliminate stress on test day. 


Q: How long is the battery life?

The Top Score Watch has a high quality Japanese movement and battery. The battery will fuel your watch for approximately three years (from first use), so you will have plenty of time to practice for the tests you plan to take and be confident that your watch will function without any issues on test day. 


Q: Can I change the battery or have someone change it for me?

Yes, absolutely. You are free to change the battery yourself or take it to your local jewelry store or Sears watch center. A replacement battery costs approximately $5 retail. This may be relevant for you if you plan to retake any one of the tests years in the future, or you have a friend who may be planning to take it in the future. Save money, buy one watch and just replace the battery.


Q: How long does it take for the watch to arrive?

All watch orders are processed and shipped within 24 hours. Once an order is placed, your watch should arrive in approximately 3 business days, depending on where you live (in the United States only). Many of our watches are shipped internationally and delivery times vary from 1 to 2 weeks depending on the country, so be sure to order well in advance to make sure the watch is in your hands on test day. 


Q: What is your return policy?

At this time we do not offer a return policy. In the past many students would return their Top Score Watch immediately after the test that they took, so we are no longer offering a return policy. Apologies for the inconvenience.
