Top Customer Reviews
If not for the problem with the buttons, I would have given this timer five stars. If you usually use a timer to count down differing times, and don't care about repeatability, this timer may function well for you.
Pros: Quality, appearance, flexibility
Con: Overly sensitive time controls
The buttons are flush and easy to use. They are not overly sensitive in the least. I have normal sized male fingertips. I have no dexterity skills beyond those of a juvenile chimpanzee. I can set the time, reset this device to zero (by holding minute and hour simultaneously), set the alarm, turn off the alarm, all with ease. No sweat, no worries, no inaccuracies, Perhaps Polder updated the device, I don.t know. All I know is that I bought one, will soon be buying another, and have no issues whatsoever with the buttons.
Things I notice. It will count down or up both timers simultaneously, it can count down one timer and up the other. They can count down from whatever time you set. While you are setting them, the buttons beep; no way to silence the beeping. They count down silently, but the green light blinks every six seconds. In the final minute, the green light blinks every one second, then the alarm goes off plenty loud, and the red light blinks while it counts up again. You can stop the alarm and red light and the counting up (but not any one of those feature independently) when you hit the SS button on the front face. The time previously set is saved, so you could do the same countdown again without resetting anything if you wanted.
Count up timer works only from zero, after you reset the hours and minutes to zero. No flashing lights for this mode. I don't see that you can set an alarm for counting up...for instance, count up to five minutes then alarm...but I could be missing something.
For 25/5 Pomodoros, I have two methods. I can have one count down 25 minutes, then I silence that alarm, already have timer 2 set to count up, and then watch the "rest" time count up until it hits five minutes. Or, the method I use more often: one timer counts down 25 minutes, the other counts down 30 minutes...timer 1 goes off and I hit the button to silence it, but timer two still going for another five minutes (30 min total) during my rest. When it goes off, I silence it and then restart both 25 and 30 minute timers for my next session. Note: there is no way for it to do 25/5 without touching the buttons. I have a stopwatch by Robic that will do that repeating without touching, and it is a pacer stopwatch. But, that's a different beast (and much more complicated to use).
This is more silent than using a crank-up kitchen timer for Pomodoro with it's annoying ticking; no ticking here. I wish this had a silent feature so that only the light would turn red, no alarm, but it does not. And resetting the buttons beeps with each press. This might not be an ideal solution for testing centers, libraries, offices, and other areas where silence is mandatory.
Enjoy this great device. If I find differences in the second one I buy, I'll post here. Winner. Comes with AAA x 2 batteries. Must flip up the standup stand (which works well; I did not try the magnet) to open the battery compartment.
