Shot timers

What's good? I tried one from Amazon, and it's going back today. Aside from feeling cheap and insubstantial, I can't make it retain configuration settings. Having to reset the beep delay from instant to random every time I turn the thing on is a non-starter. I don't recommend buying this one:

So I'm looking here: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=shot+time...ref=nb_sb_noss

What are the pros and cons for the CED units vs. the Competition Electronics Pocket Pro and Pocket Pro II?

Ive been running a pocket pro since they came out. I used it during my time teaching at Front Sight. So its been rode hard. Its still working today. I couldnt be happier with the performance of this old thing.

I’ve really enjoyed my PocketPro II.

Around here it seems to be PACT country. Some Pocket Pro, a good number of CEDs.
I have a CED which has a lot of functions but is kind of fiddly to set them up. I am not sure the phone type rechargeable battery is better than a replaceable battery in this application.
The AMG is getting good reviews but I have not seen one in action.
