Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
The patent pending Invision Game Timer is yet another example of Dye striving to be the most technically advanced and stylistically innovative company in the industry. This simple device has added a whole new dimension to the game of paintball. Easily installed into any Invision system, the timer rests comfortably next to your right ear. The Invision Timer voice alert will beep and announce the time as it counts down: 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 minute points and at the 50, 40, 30, 20, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 second points. After the one second announcement, the timer will tell you "game over". Can be used during Big games, tournaments or practice. The Invision Game Timer is an item you can count on.

Review: The timer fits just behind the right side of the goggle on the inside of the mask--basically between the goggle and the earpiece. It doesn't seem to be very substantial, and I have some concerns what a direct impact might do to it. It is, however, on the inside of the mask--so it should be fine. It also weighs virtually nothing, and you won't notice its even there until you turn it on and it starts talking to you. I do think that, for what a small, simple piece of electronics it is, Dye overcharges a bit.

To set the time there is a button on the side. The instructions tell you how to toggle it from minutes to seconds. Its a little different than a regular kitchen timer or an alarm clock, and takes some getting used to--but nothing prohibitive.

The switch to turn the countdown timer on is located on the top of the timer and can be accessed while you're wearing the mask. You can also push it to tell you how much time is left. The timer has a serious-sounding female voice that actually states the time to you as listed in the intervals on the description. It reminds me a little bit of playing Halo.

The speaker is quite loud, and should be great for speedball. For woodsball, I'd recommend a piece of tape or something over the speaker to quiet it down.
Conclusion: If you want to know how long you've got left, and you wear an Invision, this is definitely the way to go. It certainly does what it is intended to do. For the way I play (mostly woodsball), I wouldn't pay more than $20 for it--but that's just, only, and exclusively me.
