    This is probably too much to ask for, but does anyone know of a timer app that will allow me to set a 20 minute timer with a five minute warning? And I would love to have it have a complication for easy, quick access.

    Basically I want a 20 minute timer, but I want it to vibrate at 15 minutes and keep going until 20.

    The Due app can do this. It’s primarily an app for reminders (and an awesome at that), but it also lets you set custom timers and run them simultaneously. So you can set one timer for 29 minutes, another for 15, and kick them off at the same time.

    Thanks. I’ve tried Due in the past, just not for timers. I’ll check it out

    It's a newer feature they added later on, but I think it has been part of the app for at least 6 months now.

    Still, it seems like there should also be an app that can do what you are suggesting... maybe search "Countdown timers" to see what comes up. There is one called Seconds Pro interval timer that says it lets you create "compound timers" which sounds like what you are after. It might be more convenient than creating multiple timers in Due.
