As a beginner runner, I started interval training (running and walking) and wanted a gadget to help me time each interval. This little item does exactly that - it's flexible timing-wise and easy to adjust (when I want to lengthen one interval or shorten another) and it's really easy to use. You can set the alarm to sound or vibrate and as I use an MP3 player, I simply clip the Gymboss to my bra and feel the vibration telling me to change to the next interval. It has options for the amount of time (up to 9 seconds) that the alarm will sound (or vibrate) and when the whole workout is finished, it lets you know by beeping/vibrating in repeated short bursts. If you want a reliable, simple but 'clever' interval device, this is absolutely ideal. In a nutshell, I am thrilled with it!

The Gymboss Interval timer is brilliant!

Solid construction. Simple and very easy to use. Stop watch or interval timer. Clips onto clothing.

You can have one or two intervals (i.e. exercise and rest), set the number of repetitions of these intervals or just have it run continuously, have bleeper or vibration (or both).

Definitly recommend this product if you are into any kind of training; circuit training, fartlek training, strength training, SAQ.

I bought this timer for my workout in the gym. The timer truly helps to remain focused on the workout in a very effective way. My worries before purchase were that the timers beep sound would be to loud and make me feel uncomfortable.
I bought the timer anyway.
It was such a big surprise to find the timer with a vibration mode! The vibration mode made this device perfect for me and my needs.
The vibration is strong, much stronger than my cellphone vibrating! Vibration strength diminishes, when batteries get almost empty.
I also use the timer at work. I am so happy that I do not have to use the cellphone timer anymore. Gymboss is so much better and more effective.
Also I should mention that the timer clip is flawless and never falls off.

Was looking for a timer for interval training in the gym & running, bought this because you can set 2 intervals, and it is ideal. I found it easy to set up tho' I do need the instructions to remind myself sometimes. Like the black soft-touch coating.

This product was great as a timer and with 1 improvement on functionality it would be perfect. However it isnt really as described with regards to it being Water resistant. I was using to increase how long I could hold my breath for. I didnt submerge it, it was left on the side and the beebs were audible underwater. However, after a little while of wet fingers adjusting the settings, the display started to go. Segments of the numbers had gone and was not really usable as I couldnt really tell what it was set to anymore without testing. To further prove the point, as I wasnt really going to be able to use it any more, I placed in under water (I did this in my sink so no real preasure and it was plain old tap water) and it went off within about 5-10 seconds. I was able to take apart, dry out and get it to turn on, but the display is still half working.

Now watches describe themselves as water resistant and they mean you can swim with them on. Water resistant in this case I think means it might be ok if you breathed on it...

Would I buy again? Yes but only if it was really water resisant as advertised, or if I needed for land based sport.

bought this for tabata interval training - liked the idea of cramming my cardio into 4 mins of hell.
its perfect for this, the only problem is mine has a tendency to stop functioning, with no warning, somewhere between the 3rd and 5th round.
Really frustrating when this happens, (especially if you're doing a set of squats and the buzzer doesn't go off- and your legs are knacked)
Its getting to the point where I have to do a reset before every use.
Even then it still has a tendency to freeze up, meaning an 8 round workout can be 11 +.

I may have been unfortunate and received a dodgy one.
To be honest, it sits on the shelf now as I downloaded a much more reliable app for my phone.
However- when it works, it is great and makes a massive difference to your workout.
take the plunge and cross your fingers

Wow, what a completely brilliant gadget !

I am currently an overweight school teacher who also puts in 30 hours or so a week online gaming.

As a result, I am not fit. I am beginning to deploy a weight training approach (see my review of "The Power of 10" and my review of the Tunturi Neoprene 5kg Dumbbells) which requires strict timing of the lifts.

The Gymboss device signals accurately (via a loud sound) the timing of my lifts. No more looking at the stopwatch or approximating things in my mind. The Gymboss has made me much more disciplined at playing with my dumbbells.

UPDATE:
Although the Gymboss served its purpose well, most smart phones and portable electronic devices now have apps specifically designed for the gym. As a result, I no longer use the Gymboss.

Yes overall it is the answer to circuits and tabata interval training! The stopwatch is also useful. The only issue is that my screen had cracked in the top pocket of my bag. Thinking I have looked after it I am a bit suprised as it is only four weeks new and the display has faded in places as a result.

I can't balme the timer but it has left me slightly dubious of it's hardiness. I have bought another one anyhow and will review that soon...
