Bug Description

During Profiling I notice that stratup animation (scroll up whole clock), is causing hiccups in Stopwatch.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start StopWatch.
2. Clock Clock
3. Start Clock app

- Stopwatch is appering, and animation is running. Unfortunately it is not counting regularly and it stops for a moment. It is a bad user experience. When animation is complete the stopwatch is caunting ok

- Stopwatch is caunting without hiccups.

More details in attached screenshot of profiler.

I suspect that the lag could be due to two reasons,
1. The startup animation itself
2. The loading of the alarm model

Since we are in the stopwatch page, we could avoid showing the startup animation and load the alarm model only when the user goes to the clock page. That should fix this issue.

Is this issue still reproducible? I believe Florian's work on improving the startup animation should have fixed this. Please confirm. Marking incomplete for now.
