Top Customer Reviews
- User Interface (button system) is significantly more intuitive than the famously UN-intuitive Gymboss...however, see the first Con.
- Larger, easier-to-read display than Gymboss.
- Far, FAR better instructions paper than Gymboss...no comparison here!
- Comes with an elastic velcro armband, for those who prefer to use that instead of clipping it to your waistband. (of course, you could probably buy a generic armband for the Gymboss for a couple bucks on eBay.)
- "Lock" function so that keys can't be accidentally pushed during use...not on Gymboss.
- Nice big un-confusable "Start/Pause" button, rather than identically sized ones on the Gymboss.
- Choice of 0, 10, or 30 second warning for end of work round.
- Choice of 3 different types of bell alarms, plus vibrate on/off.
- Two AAA batteries are housed not in one compartment but two separate ones, on each side of the device---this provides for more balanced weight distribution, and I would expect two batteries to last longer than the single AAA of the Gymboss.
- Bigger belt clip is much easier to get on and off your waistband than the smaller and super-tight belt clip of the Gymboss.
- Belt clip is removable, in case you want to use the 4 magnets on the back of the unit if you want to stick it on your fridge or some other metal surface.
- With shipping, this unit is two bucks less than the Gymboss.
- Not quite as easy to figure out right off the bat as the previous generation Everlast Digital Round Timer...rather disappointing! I still had to refer to the directions, whereas with the older Everlast timer I could just wing it right out of the box.
- SIZE: Bulkier than Gymboss, but this is a matter of personal preferences/tastes...a petite woman might not be crazy about that.
- COLOR: Comes only in bright yellow, whereas the Gymboss has a handsome dark gray, a plasticky-looking silver, and a very girly pink. The Gymboss dark gray and pink both have a rubberized coating which is quite pleasant at the tactile level.
- ALARM: Boxing-themed bell alarm is kind of grating and unpleasantly distorted, compared to the simpler and more effective (esp. in a noisy gym) generic BEEP of the Gymboss.
- BUILD QUALITY: There are several gaps/seams in the plastic body which my fingernail could actually get inside of---this suggests that this device might not be as sweatproof as the seamless Gymboss.
Personally, I would give this product five stars if only it didn't have the annoying bell-chime, but I guess that's just part of the Everlast boxing-centric brand image.
=== UPDATE, 11.08.2012
Well, one glaring CON to this timer I have only discovered today: it is sensitive to low temperatures. I took it with me for a Tabata workout outdoors today...about 38 degrees F, and after about 10 minutes of warm-up jogging, I turned it on---the display looked ok for all of about 2 seconds before it died and could not be turned back on again. But when I went back home, it had no problem powering on and off and working normally...ARGH!!! Sigh...will have to order another Gymboss and see if it suffers from the same problem.
=== UPDATE, 12.30.2012
Apologies to Everlast: scratch my previous complaint about this timer not working in low temperatures. Today I found that it was ALL ABOUT THE BATTERIES! Namely, the cheapo Rayovac AAAs from Wallyworld that I used previously just can't handle low temps...but the Duracell batteries I used today were fine even though it was 22 degrees F! Guess with batteries, you do get what you pay for.
Oh, and another note---the timer fell off my waistband (the clip is really not as strong as it looks) and took a 3-4 foot fall onto the asphalt road I was running on..and SURVIVED! Yep, one of the battery covers went flying along with the battery and I was thinking to myself, "OMG now I really have to buy another one"---but it worked fine when I put the battery and lid back in place! Guess that answers the physical durability question, eh?
Update: It has been at least a month now and I have still not heard anything from Amazon or Everlast regarding the issues on this.
Update: Months later and I still have not heard back from Amazon or Everlast about this....I have not been able to use this item at all.
1. a. If you want to do clever combinations of intervals (e.g. 5 min work, 50 sec rest, 4 min work, 40 sec rest, 3 min work, 30 sec rest etc.) or b. If you have many interval combinations you want use (and store into memory) you need the miniMax timer.
BUT it is somewhat complex to program, there is no end of round warning beep (If you want to have a warning beep 10 sec before the end of a 1 min work interval you have to program it as a 50 sec interval followed by a 10 sec interval), the loudest beep setting is not as loud as I would like, and for a given program you can only have one beep sound (not distinct for warning or rest or whatever). In the middle of a workout this can get confusing.
2. a. If you only need one or two interval durations (For instance 20x 1 minute rounds, or 5 minute rounds with 1 minute rests between, or 20 sec on, 10 sec off Tabatas) you need the Everlast timer. and b. If you don't mind the lack of memory (it remembers the last settings you did but if you want to use other timings you have to punch them in each time you change them for a different workout). The Everlast is your best bet AND The Everlast has a distinct end-of-interval warning you can simply set to off or for 10 or 30 sec warning. It is simple to change programs in just a few seconds, probably faster than you can locate a saved program in the miniMax. It's plenty loud.
SO, for complex interval combinations saved to memory, it's the miniMax. For simpler stuff, it's the Everlast.
