Keen chess players seeking a highly portable digital chess clock for use almost anywhere without sacrificing functionality will find the DGT Pocket Travel Timer a compelling proposition. Second in features and options only to Professional models for just a small premium over Entry Level models, it easily slips into a shirt pocket when folded yet when opened reveals a welcomely large display and generous player buttons.
It features the flexibility to configure for one time period any of five modes—move timer, game timer, game timer count-up, game timer plus bonus (Fischer increment) and game timer plus simple (USCF) delay. These possibilities encompass the majority of fashionable time control methods encountered in modern chess play while configuration is quick and simple.
Further to its singular “home, club or pub” form factor the DGT Pocket Travel Timer holds a unique rank amongst all digital chess clocks for its ability to generate or recall all Chess960 starting positions.
