I must admit I have not used the Gymboss timer in a gym. It's a simple, easy-to-use programmable timer. You set an interval (e.g. 20 minutes), choose an alarm (audible or vibration) and press "start". It will then alert you once the time is up; choose "auto" mode and it will keep doing this every 20 minutes.

I've used it for two purposes:
1. My chiropractor tells me I should be stretching every 20 minutes. The timer is just the job to act as an automatic reminder.
2. When I'm giving a talk or presentation (part of my job), I set the timer to buzz to remind me to change topic / wind up / whatever. It's a great antidote to long-windedness and it allows me to pace the talk exactly the way I want to.

The only negative comment - I would recommend throwing away the "free" battery that comes with it and replacing it with a decent battery.

Can be used both as a stopwach or as an interval timer. It is possible to have one or two different length intervals, which can be repeated for up to 99 times.

I found it relatively easy to program but then I am the one who sets up appliances in our house. However I will still need to keep the instructions handy.

I love it that the alarm has three levels: vibrate only, quiet and loud. The vibrating alarm level is quiet enough to use in an open plan office. It is even possible to set how many seconds the alarm goes on for (from 1 to 9).

I have been using it to set my own cardio intervals (3 minutes, 1 minute, repeated for as many times I need), to time my son's bedtime countdown, for work and break timing, cooking etc. Just love it!

Fantastic piece of kit! most timers allow only specific round and interval time (e.g. 1, 2, 3min rounds/30secs, 1, 1.30secs interval). this wicked piece of kit allows you to set ANY round/interval time whether it be round = 4.32 secs, interval = 1.36secs. Its great. I use it for interval cardio training, MMMA, boxing, etc and i also read the review of another and now use it for studying (30 mins study, 10 mins break) its like a little study coach. i generally just set my time and interval and put it on auto and it goes continiously (informing you of rounds done) but it can be set to perform a limtied number of rounds. Also the alarm can be well heard from intermediate distances and can be set to go off for 1, 5 and 10 seconds ensuring you will definately hear it. absolute essential training kit. The only con is i think it could look a bit better but its functionality still keeps it on 5 star level!

This is great! I was looking for a stop watch to time my rest between sets lifting wieghts and this is just the job. I have set it to beep afer 1 minute.

So, I clip it to my shorts on the side and when I have finished a set I press the button and wait to hear the beep, then it's time to go again! It's speeded up and simplified my worksouts and I no longer need to keep my eye on the clock.

Wasn't difficult to set up and and has been working well so far.

Although this product never arived from the seller on amazon, and had to get a refund . i purchased one of these on another site (ebay) and when deliverd was just what i expected. the gymboss is simple to use and easy to program. just key in the duration of your work interval and your rest interval and how many sets you want to do . press start and it goes through them beeping when the timers go down. the intervals can be programed up to 99min work 99min rest and 99 sets. so you can use these if you want to do a well structured work out. or if you wanna study for 20mins then have 5min break then back to study for another 20mins ect.
usefull tool in any persons desk for exercise and other ideas that involve timing.

for the price, I was expecting something rugged that would stand up to a bit of abuse in the gym. I was sorely disappointed. the display was weak from the start, and hard to read as a result, after a few months the buttons stopped working, and the battery connections rusted (i was using good quality batteries). In addition setting the timer was always a pain.

when it completely gave up, i went back to using the kitchen clock, and have since got an app on my iphone (GymBuddy), which does exactly what i want. It's easier to set, can cope with more complex interval settings, and has a memory so you can save formats you use more frequently. and it was free.

This gadget does all that it claims and once you get the hang of it it can ensure that you are really sticking to your planned gym workout - in terms of rest and workout intervals.
All very well if you have the self discipline for every session in the gym but when you reach the point where you are totally exhausted you really don't need this gadget telling you that you are slacking. It's a psychological thing I suppose.
So - yes - I would recommend getting this gadget - but don't plan on using it for every session - just for the serious gym workouts.

Easy to use, an essential piece of kit for training at home or in gym. Works like a double timer allowing you to set multiple rounds (up to 99)at different time intervals (up to 99:99). You set the timers and then the amount of rounds to that you want the pattern to continue for, this can be automated or manual. Example would be when training with a Kettlebell I'll warm up by setting the Gymboss to 10 rounds, broken into 2 intervals of 30 seconds . So thats simply 10 minutes with a beep every 30 seconds. So for that 10 minutes I'll change between a kettlebell exercise and an active rest. That could easy translate to circuit training interval sprints etc. That setting is my preference for that particular workout but yo can set for any rounds and time intervals. The belt clip is handy because the Gymboss weight isn't even worth mentioning and hangs un-noticeably from waist band or pocket while you train and the dual set volume means you'll hear it outside as well as in a noisy gym or there is even a vibrate mode so no need to sacrifice your training music. I use this for all my training sessions and recommend it to everybody. There have been a couple of reviews leaning towards being hard to use but its only three buttons, they are labeled and the its less complicated than a stop watch. In all fairness the instructions also state to "have a play with it to get used to it" which makes sense since if you've never used one before then you'll want to have a play with it just like anything your not familiar with. It really is simple and allows you to focus on a workout without checking the clock. You just train until you hear the bleep. Fantastic piece of kit.
