I came across a Facebook ad for this gym timer and for $69 I decided that I had to have it. So I dutifully signed up on Kickstarter at the $69 introductory price on 8/25/2020. The timer quickly reached its goal and my credit card was charged on 9/26/2020.
Following that, Timebirds made a cover available and requested shipping costs which I paid on 11/6/2020. $15 for a cover that I really did not need and $9 for shipping. At this point, I am all in for $93.
Coincidentally, the retail price is $119 for a timer and cover and there is a 10% discount. I did save $23 compared to retail.
Unfortunately, I still have not received my timer.
- Pocket sized
- No remote/phone required
- Rechargeable battery (USB-C)
- Count up/down, interval, count up/down by rounds, clock
This was primarily purchased to throw in my gym bag for when I returned to the gym. I still think it is a clever design. The proof will be in the display size and visibility. Ease of use and battery life is less of an issue as I find that I can get used to anything.
