I do not like it for these reasons: The lettering that is raised on the plastic (near the buttons to tell you what they do) are not colored-they are the color of the plastic itself. Yes, I guess after using it enough, you would eventually remember where everything is located, but this fact makes it very difficult for the first few weeks, plus I am far-sighted (aah-old age setting in : ) so I really have difficulty reading the button's functions. I still don't remember half the time which function is for what because I only interval train 2x's a week.
I also wish the vibration was a bit stronger. Unless you have the timer actually resting on your skin, say, as opposed to the outside of your work shorts/pants, etc., then you barely feel it, especially when you are having a hard work out and are a bit distracted with catching your breath during intense interval training. It does beep, but I don't use that feature because I wear headphones and can't hear it beeping anyway, really rely on the vibration.
Once you DO learn to operate the unit, it's not bad. The defaults are kind of strange. Like, why does it default to 10 repetitions? And why 2 intervals? Also, I can never remember what "BL", "BH" and "V" stand for, so I'm confused when I see it. I'd just use "BEEP" and "VIBE". There's enough room on the display. For the soft beep I'd use a smaller font size.
Once you do learn to operate the unit, it seems to do its advertized funtions.
I'll update this review, to describe durability, once the units' recipients, ages 5 & 10, have had a chance to break them...in! ;)
Update: the units have been dropped a number of times and survived.
However, yesterday during a Half Marathon, with some rain (not a downpour, more like a light rain - drizzle) the GymBoss quit working. At first the display was buggy. Parts of the LCD numbers were missing, so you could not tell the difference between an 8 or a 3, etc. But the beep/vibrate feature plugged along, which is all I really wanted. But after about mile 8, and the rain had stopped by then, the G-Boss just quit. No screen, no action. A little fog under the glass of the screen; always a bad sign.
After the race, I pulled the battery and left the door open over night. This morning, it seems to be resurrected and working fine.
My suggestion (I've yet to try this) is buy a Ziploc snacks size bag, which should be about the right size. Then cut a slit in the back for the clip to pass through. There you have a very water repellent, but still can see the display, feel the vibration, work the controls. You might need to move the beep to high, from low, depending on your auditory acuity (I'm hard of hearing, so rely on the vibrate more than any beep; ditto if you run with headphones on).

Great for doing interval training like HIIT and Tabata. I recommend taking out the battery when not in use, the buttons can get bumped and turn it on. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Cuppa Joe
