Basic Operating Instructions

The primary Gym Timer Pro feature is to give fast access to various preset timers. Its operation mode prioritizes the timer stop/start/reset and timer navigation functions over the activity session start/stop functions.
The reason for that is pretty simple, during your gym session you will go through various timer settings but will start/stop your session recording only once.

Selecting your sport and display configuration

Gym Timer Setup Editor
The app allows defining the label, sport, GPS, backlight mode, alert preferences (vibration, sound and on screen), display color and additional data fields.
The configuration is done at Genius Wrist's website. The premium version allows five different setups to be created and stored on your watch. The free version allows only one configuration.

Downloading your setup into the watch

Every time you start the app or finish a workout the app will try to sync with Genius Wrist's website. You can also force a synchronization using the ONLINE SYNC option inside the app menu. The sync process requires a Bluetooth connection between your watch and your mobile phone.

Editing the timers

You can edit your timers using Genius Wrist's website or directly on your watch. The configuration is synchronized between the site and watch, and the editing that took place later will have precedence.

Recording your session

The session recording will start as soon you start the timer for the first time (use the start button on your device). After the first use, the start button will only start and stop the timers, but your activity session will keep going.
To save or discard a workout session you must first pause (pause with the start button) and reset the current timer (reset with the back key or gesture). Then use the back key or gesture again, and the app will ask if you wish to resume, save or discard the activity. Gym Timer Timer Editor

Activity Feed

You can track your completed workout details in the activity feed.

Time, duration, calories, heart rate, distance and the list of exercises you performed will be listed.

Genius Wrist system will give your workout a score. The points are based on the perceived effort during the activity. That means the same workout can have different values every time you execute it. The score will be very low if you do not measure your heart rate during the workout sessions.

Activity Feed


The activity feed displays the individual result of each workout and stats page will give you a broader view of your gym activities.

The system will track the calories, duration, distance, number of sets, number of activities and the score of your gym workouts, allowing you to follow your monthly progression.

Gym Genius Statitics Gym Genius Monthly Statitics


The achievements system will level you up based on the number of points you score in each of your workouts. The scoring system gives points based on perceived effort, not fitness level, that means, the easier the exercise is perceived by you, the fewer points you will score. That way you are stimulated to keep your workouts on a challenging level.

Some achievements will be awarded recurrently. For example the each month you will receive a new Calories badge.

Licensing modes:

Single app: As the name states you will have access to only one of our apps. Just go to the desired app configuration page and click the "Get a license" button.
