    I borrowed this from a colleague for one match last year and found it a real help - normally I rely on marking the score card for each PK. The only disadvantage of the watch method is that it doesn't allow you to record number and offence - thereby getting trends.
    The real positive was that even if I gave advantage I could record this as a PK - if the non-offending team took and played out the advantage
    Anyone else used this as a general watch for timing, and more specifically for penalty counts (does it go to more than 10). I've been using an app on my Apple watch with some success, but it's too many button pushes to record (switch app, press etc), and I have to look at it which is a distraction. Imagining replacing my Timex old timer with this and almost blindly being able to record penalties as I can feel the buttons - any flaws in this plan?

    Yes I have one and its a great watch.
    Count up or down.
    And I keep the score on it (as a check against my card, plus I can tell the score at a glance without having to add it up) but you could equally keep a penalty count on it instead (it goes past 10), which I might have to do if the new law trial comes in about counting them.

    Good value for money as well.

    It would be perfect for what you want.

    Perfect, I'll take a punt, happy keeping score on paper + apple watch (same app gives me time elapsed as a fallback), had to have a really accurate penalty count yesterday (Girls cup, if a draw at full time it was tries scored (always the same as they can't kick!), and then least tries conceded) which added a lot or pressure to the accuracy of that count.

    Agree with PhilE. It counts up to loads!!

    However, be aware that you can only add to the PK (score) when the timer is running. If do the "watch off" and press the relevant button then the penalty is not counted.

    At Half-Time when you reset the timer, make sure to only press the 'Reset' button for no more than 3 Seconds otherwise your penalty count will also get reset.

    I love the ref scorer because you can - if you so desire - press the button on the run if you also want to include Penalty Advantages.

    I am trying it out. I reset it to 0 at half time. Although I guess if you go past 9 you will remember to add the "ten".

    Counter in one hand, whistle in the other?

    I use ref mitts http://www.whistleitsportsgloves.com/ The whistle is attached to the left hand glove and the counter to the right. I've used it for 5 games so far. I include "advantage" calls so I'm always higher than the advisors count.

    When you run fully grasp the Whistle / counter when you need to write you let the appropriate hand "drop" the whistle so you can write. Tried it first is some slow (expectedly) games. Used it today in a fast BUCS game with no issues.

    The gloves also help if you have circulation problems.

    The refscorer watch was a positive for me today, apart from not being able to record a couple with time off, but that was easily managed. Confident that my penalty count was much more accurate, especially in the second half when players get a bit excited and give you a lot more distractions.
