interval timer

i thought i had a great interval timer, but it keeps messing up. nothing worse than haveing to stop in the middle of intervals to reset the timer. any suggestions on getting a good one? i have researched a little but keep getting referred to the same one that is messing up, or a very expensive one. thanks for suggestions

Re: interval timer

Mine works, but the display is messed up. Makes it a little harder to adjust the times when you can't see all the numbers.

Re: interval timer

You might search for a software timer. Of course you'd need a pc or laptop when you workout.

How old is it? I dealt with their customer service for a small problem I had and they sent me one out right away no questions asked with a prepaid return mailer.

Re: interval timer

You have to change the batteries when you get the gymboss - I realize you have probably already tried it but sometimes the obvious is overlooked.

I live by my gymboss and have never had a bit of trouble with it. But I do have to change the batteries more often then one would think.
