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.

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's 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 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.

Gym Genius Level Up Badge Level Up Badge

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

Pick up your favorite color or use then to easily identify your training presets. The background color (black or white) and foreground color of the display (gray, red, orange, green, blue or purple) can be configured.

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.

The Gym Apps Combo: Gym Genius and Gym Timer Pro are two parts of a single solution. If you buy the license for one of the gym apps, you will receive premium access to the other.

Bundle: In bundle mode you will have access to the premium version of all sports-related apps. The licensing rule is simple, as long as you pay for two sports-apps, the system will grant you premium access to the others.
The system will automatically upgrade your license to bundle mode, when you buy the license for a second app. If you already have two licensed apps just install the remaining ones one and they will be automatically upgraded. The bundle package includes Gym Genius, Gym Timer Pro, Workout Genius and Workout Builder.
Be aware that despite being treated a single bundle, the license acquisition for each app is independent. That means, if you have two licenses with different expiration dates (and received additional licenses as a bonus in the bundle mode), when the first license expires the bundle mode will be disabled and the bonus licenses will also be canceled. To keep the bundle active, it is required to maintain two valid licenses.

30 days money back guarantee:

During the fist 30 days of the licensing period, you will be able to request a total refund of your payment if the app does not satisfy your needs. The refunding process is instantaneous, automatic and you can request it clicking on a button. No questions asked. The 30 days trial period is applied for each app separately and you are eligible to it only if it is the first time you are acquiring a license for the app.

Payment process:

No payment information is collected by Genius Wrist's website. You will be sent to PAYPAL's website to execute your payment operation and when you finish your transaction at PAYPAL, you will be sent back to Genius Wrist.
