Do not purchase this watch – it is cheap and there’s reasons why, February 9, 2015

This review is from: New Balance Interval Training CircuitTRNr Stopwatch (Sports)
I absolutely hate this stopwatch and will not by another New Balance electronic product. I purchased it because A) I was looking for a stopwatch with a timer and interval training function, B) orange is my favorite color and C) at around it was affordable. Here are the reasons I wouldn’t recommend this stopwatch to ANYONE no matter what your needs are.

1. As noted in one of the other reviews, there is a major design flaw. You cannot turn the alarm off. Even when it says it is off the alarm still goes. It is incredibly annoying – I finally adapted by setting it for a time I wanted to make myself do a short set of exercises. This was not one with a flaw – I actually sent the first one back and got a replacement that had the same issue. New Balance should have pulled them off the shelves.

2. Also as mentioned, you can only set up to 9 cycles on the interval trainer – there is not even an option for it just to keep going until you stop it. Nine is not enough.

3. There is a wheel around the face of the clock that you can turn to serve the same function as pushing the top buttons (switch function, change numbers, etc). This might seem like a good idea but it is very unnecessary and comes with its own issue. The dial is so sensitive that you cannot use the timer, stopwatch or interval trainer if you are holding it in your hand. The slightest pressure makes it switch functions and lose whatever it is you are timing. The only way to use this is to set it on the ground so nothing is touching it.

The ironic thing is that, after failing to get a time on four straight 100 yard dashes, I got so frustrated I threw it on the track. The ring busted off of it and now I don’t have issue #3 anymore. If I am lucky it also broke the alarm. Don’t buy this watch.

It was a gift for my girlfriend, who is a Romanian personal trainer (yes, I know how lucky I am), and she LOVES it (she said it in Romanian, though). Just two issues for her: She wishes there were more girly colours available and she thinks it should be waterproof or water-resistant. I’d add the price is totally reasonable and the design is excellent. Easy and comfortable to use. Fully recommended.

ZERO STARS!! Don’t waste your money!, March 14, 2015
This review is from: New Balance Interval Training CircuitTRNr Stopwatch (Sports)
I bought the CircuitTRNr stopwatch in Feb 2015. It does not work. I assumed the battery that came with it was dead so I bought two brand new batteries. I tried two brand new ones and the stopwatch still does not work. I’m very dissatisfied with this product. What a complete waste of money. By the way, all of the batteries work just fine when I inserted them in other gadgets I own.
