Simply Beautiful & Beautifully Simple.
Say no to cheap plastic toys with complicated user manuals. Play the game you love with the best equipment possible. Elegant, rugged, innovative design from Tempest.
Set it. Dock it. Rock it.
Tempest™ chess clocks combine the best of two worlds: a beautiful, mechanical, tactile base with a sophisticated, easy-to-use game timer app. (it uses your phone's own gyroscope and therefore needs no batteries! clever isn't it?) It docks with phones large or small, new or old. Devices as large as Galaxy Ultra, Pixel XL, and iPhone Max fit snugly.
The UI design is incredibly clean and simple (no user manual is needed). Even complex time controls are set in seconds: Just swipe to set, and play.
Supports all standard chess, backgammon, go, and scrabble time controls: increments, delays, tournament periods, byoyomi periods and overtime. Tempest plays them all with a design worthy to be seen next to the most beautiful sets.

ONE GAME CHANGING CLOCK. TWO BEAUTIFUL EDITIONS.
“Simple. Solid. Slick.
I’m a big fan of the Tempest Clock!”
WIM Fiona Steil-Antoni puts Tempest to the test
Tempest Story “It’s odd that game clocks haven’t evolved. In some ways, they’ve gotten worse.”
Other clocks are cheaply made, hard to use & fugly
“Amazing and Unusual.
The analog is as perfect as the digital.”
WGM Dina Belenkaya
THIS IS NOT A PHONE*
TEMPEST'S TOURNAMENT MODE IS STRICT. DURING PLAY IT DISABLES ALL PHONE FUNCTIONS, SO THE DEVICE IS JUST A SCREEN AND NOTHING MORE. NO CALLS. NO TEXTS. NO CHEATING. NO BULLSHIT.
We ❤️ TDs: Tempest has the easiest tournament settings ever, even for 3-period 'championship time controls'. Tempest's UI makes other clocks look absurd. Even complex time controls are unbelievably simple with Tempest!
eg. First 40 moves in 2 hours, then 20 moves in 1 hour, then all the rest in 30 minutes (with 30 sec. increments). This sentence is exactly how Tempest is set! No need to RTFM ever again. So Simple!

I'm a big fan. it's really slick, and so easy to use. I really think it will revolutionize chess on the go.

It's super easy to set, even in bullet games it doesn't move around. It's a really good playing experience.

For me, this is a 10 out of 10! I actually love my Tempest clock. I'm always super excited to use it.

In 30+ years of competition, I've tried every clock there is. Tempest is the simplest and sleekest yet.
