Gymboss Review - Comfort and Ease of Use With the Gymboss Interval Timer

Gymboss interval timer review

The Gymboss is one of my favorite pieces of running gear.

It's cheap, easy to use and makes interval running a breeze.

Check out my Gymboss interval timer review below for more information.

Intervals the Hard Way...

I used to do my intervals with help of the stop watch function of my watch. The problem is that you can only record one time on a stop watch.

So if I'd have to do a 4 minute hard, 3 minute easy session, I would do 7 minutes on my stop watch, and then keep track of the 4 min/3min split.

Very annoying and it makes those runs very restless. You are constantly looking at your watch to make sure you do not miss the next split.

... and the Easy Way

The Gymboss makes it all a lot easier.

And it is oh so simple.

The Gymboss timer does not have one, but two timers.

Why did nobody think of that before?

So when I now do my 4 min hard, 3 min easy, I set those two times in the Gymboss, clip it onto my running shorts and get out of the door. After each period is finished you get a little signal. Either a beep (hard/soft) and/or a vibration.

You don't have to look at the clock anymore, you simply wait for the signal and change pace. It is incredible how something so simple can make such a difference to your pleasure.

Just concentrate on your running and let the Gymboss interval timer do the rest.

There is a counter in it as well, so at the end of your session (or during your session) you can see how many you have done and can work out how long you have been running for.

Gymboss Timer Setup
Gymboss timer setup is really easy. By use of three buttons you can change the setup into stopwatch or double timer, you can vary the length of the intervals (upto the second with a minimum of 1 second and maximum of 99 min 59 sec).

I love the Gym boss.

It is the cheapest piece of running gear I have got, but also my favorite.

It comes with me on all my interval sessions.

Great idea as well when you are doing a run/walk program.

Incredible value for money.
