Gymboss Interval Timer Review/Giveaway

 

Good morning, I hope you had a fab weekend. Mine was pretty relaxing. I am loving sitting on the couch and watching TV with the Christmas tree next to me. Today I am headed to the store for the last time before Thanksgiving. I hate going *too* close to turkey day because it gets so crowded, so hopefully I won’t get mowed down by crazy old ladies trying to get the last pie filling.

Today I have a fun review and giveaway. I was asked to review the Gymboss Interval Timer awhile back, but then I hurt my foot and wasn’t able to run and review it! I was able to check it out this past week and now you can have a chance to win one!

I really liked that there is a clip on the back (kind of like a beeper) so I could easily clip it to my waistband while running or working out. You can use this timer for many things other that just running sprints though:

The timer was really easy to set up and use. Here are some of the features:

  • 1 or 2 intervals – 2 seconds to 99 minutes
  • Repeat up to 99 times
  • Beep and/or Vibrate alarm
  • Alarm duration 1, 5, or 10 seconds
  • Stopwatch function
  • Secure Belt clip
  • Compact Size (1 ¾ x 2 ¼ x ½ inches)
  • Water and shock resistant

I personally have used the timer for circuit training and for running sprints. The alarm is plenty loud, and I like that if you want it to just vibrate and not beep, it has that option. Personally, I give this product a big thumbs up. If you don’t want to wear a watch and want something for timing that is portable, this is a great option. Those of you that love running with the Galloway method? This is the perfect thing for you! Did you know the Gymboss timer is the official timer of Jeff’s RunWalkRun program? It also comes in a variety of colors. The nice folks at Gymboss are going to give one away to a lucky RWS reader!
