My trouble with the Gymboss, as so many others have stated, is that it is unreliable. I tested it a couple of times and used it once so far. My assessment is that the Gymboss may just stop at any time and leave some "predator" jibberish on the screen and the only thing to do at that point is use a paperclip to reset it, and then reprogram it. I will continue to use it, because when it works, it works well; but I feel I will reach a point where the frustration level is too high and I will just pitch it. By the way, you had better have a paperclip when you work out too, because a pen or pencil isn't going to fit in the little reset hole.
I am stationed overseas, so I will not repackage it and send it back for a replacement because it isn't worth the month or more that I would wait for a new one. Not to mention postage, handling and every other headache overseas assignments create with returning items. But, if I had bought it from a local retailer I would have returned it for one that worked properly or gotten my money back.
I gave Gymboss 2 stars because the programmable options are fantastic and I am a fan of everyting except its lack of reliability and propensity for just shutting down. I can't help but to think this was just a bad batch... but, if it was, the guys at Gymboss should go and re-quality check all of them before shipping them out. Otherwise, I think there will be a lot more one star ratings out there for an otherwise fantastic product.
1st: My only concern before I bought it was the strength of the vibrate function. After using vibrate only in all my workouts, let me state that not only is the vibration strong enough during jumprope or other intense movements, even if you don't feel the vibration at first you can set it for up to nine seconds. That's definitely long enough to break your concentration and alert you to move on to the next round. As a tweak on the normal setup of intervals on the Gymboss, I like the nine seconds as a rest time, and I set up my times to account for it, (with intervals like 3:09, 1:09) so really the Gymboss can have two intervals and two rest periods instead of just two intervals. It makes sense when you actually use it.
2nd: As a grown man, I am embarrassed to admit that owning one Gymboss makes me want to buy them all. What is this, Pokemon? Yes, I want the pink one too, and I know that's creepy. But the Gymboss is that good. Anybody else feel the need to catch, uh, collect them all? Especially the camouflage one?
Both of my Gymbosses both died the same death - the battery went bad somehow and the acid leaked out and green stuff welded the battery into the unit. Not sure how that happened as I don't throw water on it or anything just basic use in the gym to watch my rest periods and when I do interval running/sprinting. My guess is that because it was around my sweaty body I think perhaps the moisture from sweating eventually got into the unit. Perhaps this can be fixed with improving the backing.
Other than that I like how my first Gymboss was some cheap glossy plastic while the second one I bought had an improved feel. The plastic was more of a dull finish and felt a bit more substantial, the buttons felt better. Just a better overall feel so the product was improved but price point didn't go up either.
Would I buy another one? I can say yes, in fact I need to get one as I've just been using the gym clock and it's a pain in the neck when you're trying to run intervals. I only use the vibrate feature as I find it annoying when I hear other people alarms beeping, ringing out loud in the gym. The vibration is strong enough so you can feel when it's your time to go. Even with the clip keep breaking and death by battery acid both of my Gymboss units lasted at least a year and a half or so each unit.
