DGT closed: Friday 21 September DGT will be closed for its yearly company day out.

Digital Game Technology

Besides the obvious difference in the colour of both clocks whereby the DGT North American is blue with red buttons on the front, the main difference between the DGT2010 and the DGT NA is how the delay time is displayed.

The DGT2010 adds the delay time to the main time of a player before each turn (and shows this total time in the display), while the DGT NA simply pauses during the delay time as is normally done in the USA.

The fact that the DGT NA, in its display, does not add the delay time to the main time is the only reason why the DGT NA is not FIDE approved. According to FIDE rules and regulations the total time available to a player should be shown on the display at all times. Note that apart from the delay option all other options on the DGT NA are the identical to the DGT2010 and as such meet FIDE criteria. The DGT NA has less pre-sets and timing methods than the DGT2010 and it has no special Go and Scrabble options. For a comparison between the options of the DGT2010 and the DGT NA please see below list.
