It's the year 2520. The time travel machine has been in use for at least several decades, but it was bulky and hard to use. To time travel, one had to be assisted by specialists, and there was a long wait period.

TT Technology has advanced, and finally, there is a personal portable Time Travel Device - TTD - that can fit into your hand, much like a mobile phone. This invention is still very new and needs to be tested. 

You work for a Time-Travel Technology company, and your job is to test the new TTD in the field.
