    Default Ref watch..

    Hi all, thinking ahead to the new season and am treating myself to a new watch. Any recommendations ?
    Anyone using the Spintso Pro?
    Thanks

    I've got a Spintso. It's ok - bit bulky - but does a job. Eats batteries but I signed up for lifetime replacement from Timpson's so I've more than recouped my money on that score.

    It's a bugger to get into without a set of watch screwdrivers

    I'd guess in the time I've had mine that Garmin type stuff might've overtaken "normal" watches but not sure.

    I'd shop around and/or seek some more advice.

    I like the Timex Ironman range.
    Much cheaper

    The one thing I would like a spitso for is the vibrate when paused feature

    I've still got the basic Casio referee watch that was available 5-years ago - and still on the original batteries )

    Timex Ironman counting down for time remaining (vibrating alarm would be nice if anyone can recommend anything that would tick these two boxes), and Apple Watch on other which does elapsed time / score and also activity tracking - have a multi timer app for yellow cards etc but it's very unreliable as I never hear the alarm (don't think it vibrates) so I don't use it much.

    The Spintso watches have always intrigued me but never had a chance to play, do they have the ability to set, see remaining, and have an alarm for yellow cards (at least 1) in parallel to doing the normal stuff, or is it still a case of scribbling the time on your scorecard and doing mental maths - that's the last bit of automation I've not got perfected yet.

    I have tried various watches to time yellow cards and none of them have worked successfully. Especially when you get more than one overlapping. Now I just write down the Time back on, on my scorecard (as opposed to the time he went off). There's always a friendly coach there to remind you when times up
