Tempest Game Clock
A premium clock controller with sophisticated software that runs on your own smart devices. Tempest adds modern competition-style timing to classic games.
The best thing to happen to game timers since the hourglass.
Tempest™ is an innovative game clock combining a patented physical controller with a sophisticated, easy-to-use, multi-game timer app that works with virtually any Android or iOS smartphone. Devices as large as Galaxy S20 ultra or iPhone 13 Pro Max fit nice and snug, including most cases (see videos below for real world examples).
Adds fun and competition-style timing to any head-to-head board game. From Chess (with Fischer increments and tournament time control periods), to Backgammon (with easy to read Bronstein delays), Go & Shogi’s special byoyomi periods and official Scrabble™ timing with overtime or without. Tempest plays them all with style, and grace too.
ONE GAME CHANGING CLOCK. TWO BEAUTIFUL EDITIONS.
“Amazing and Unusual. The analog is as perfect as the digital.” -WGM Dina Belenkaya
“It’s odd that game clocks haven’t evolved. In some ways, they’ve gotten worse.”

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.
