Timebirds Timer


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
  • Magnetic
  • 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.
