Are you going to do any task and want to set the timer for whenever it has to start and stop periodically. Though you can set timers from your devices, there is no option for repeat timers. Like if you want to do repetitive workouts or have to perform any task periodically, you can set the desired time for it. And after that, the timer should repeat to notify you for the next loop and time allotted for its completion.

For example, you have to complete two tasks and for each, you set up 1 hour. With repeat timer, you will be notified when 1 hour is completed. And you can start with another task with a timer for the same set up automatically. So without any further ado, let’s see how to set repeat timer on your Android and iOS devices.
