    Default Referees' watches

    My old stopwatch has finally given up the ghost and needs replacing before the beginning of the season! It is/was a Polar MT51 heart rate monitor watch which I used since starting with Hampshire RURS in 1999 and I'd like something new that has at least equivalent functions and a good big stopwatch display.

    Any recommendations for a replacement unit?

    Garmin forerunner, also track GPS and calories burnt based on your height, weight, speed etc.



    Not a countdown timer though so if that is an issue for you don't get this watch.

    I have the casio refs watch, great watch as it has the vibrate function to tell me it's half/full time so I know but the players don't.

    For the perfect Refs watch, I think the vibrate feature is essential. If my G-Schock could vibrate, I couldn't fault it.

    I use the Casio. It's great, although the numbers are little too small for me. I wish they did an oversize version.
    The only beef on it is that the mode button can sometimes be pushed accidentally - flex your wrist and it can be depressed just enough - which is alarming, as you look down and the display says 00:00:00 or something (!), but just switch the model round to countdown again and everything is still there.


    My other watch is a Timex Ironman, which I actually like better as it's easier to read (larger numbers) but it doesn't have a vibrate, which I think for all sorts of reasons is better than a buzzer.
