The GymBoss can add accuracy and consistency to your exercise program. But it's capable of doing a whole lot more than that!
This nifty timer lets you time either one or two intervals, each anywhere from 2 seconds to 99 minutes in length. And at the end of each interval, the GymBoss will beep and/or vibrate - your choice. Moreover, you can have the intervals auto-repeat up to 99 times.
Can you think of any ways that would be handy? How about for automatic reminders (pay attention, take a computer break, go to bathroom, etc.)? Or for affirmations, to remind yourself to breathe deeply?
Of course the GymBoss is a whiz at helping you get an exercise routine under control. This easy to use timer provides pacing, freeing you from distraction, so you can exercise with intensity and focus. You won't know how much difference this makes until you try it.
The auto function is what makes this timer so powerful.
The GymBoss will automatically continue repeating a single time interval, or two different intervals, over and over again, alarming at the end of every interval. It will also count how many of these cycles you have completed.
Here are a couple of ways you can use this AUTO mode:
SET TWO DIFFERENT INTERVALS. Suppose you want a 6 minute interval followed by a 1 minute interval. You also want these two intervals to repeat automatically.
Use the 2 interval option.
Enter 6 minutes in the first interval and 1 minute in the second interval.
Now, in AUTO the GymBoss will count down the 6 minutes and alarm, then 1 minute and alarm. The timer will then keep repeating this sequence on its own until you stop it.
You have a lot of flexibility in the two time intervals you select. They can run from 2 seconds to 99 minutes. The 2-interval option works beautifully for activities involving alternating intervals of different durations (interval training, boxing, running, intervals, etc.).
SET A SINGLE REPEATING INTERVAL. Now imagine you want to time a single interval only. Again, this interval can vary from a low of 2 seconds to a high of 99 minutes. Simply select the 1 interval time option in AUTO mode, put in the interval, and you're done.
While AUTO mode is powerful and flexible, there are times when MANUAL control works better. Perhaps you just want to time 1 minute rests for a random activity. In this case, set 1 minute and use the “MAN” (manual) mode.
Now, timing does not repeat automatically. Each time you want to begin timing you must push the “START” button. After the 1 minute is up, the timer alarms and stops. Timer is now armed and ready to begin timing the 1 minute interval again, once you press “START”.
Stopwatch Function & More
What else would be useful? A stopwatch function? The GymBoss has that also.
The GymBoss comes with a secure belt clip, so you can keep it handy. Compact in size (1 ¾ x 2 ¼ x ½ inches), it is water and shock resistant and runs on one AAA battery (not included).
