+ Can I use REFSIX without a smartwatch?
Not really. We designed REFSIX to be quick and easy to use during the match and for that reason, all of the match incidents can only be recorded through a smartwatch. Without a smartwatch you can download and login to the mobile app, create fixtures and view any historical matches.

+ Do I need my iPhone with me while refereeing a match?
No, we’ve designed the app to work in such a way you only need your smartwatch with you on the pitch. You can sync data between your iPhone and smartwatch before and after the match.

+ Do I need access to wi-fi or an internet connection?
No, on match day no internet connection is necessary.

+ What if I don't receive teamsheets before a game?
No problem, you can simply select player numbers without player names.

Since downloading this app I have been playing around with the different settings for different game modes and the app is fantastic. You can enter your upcoming game Information and then come game day all you have to input your team sheets “if you want to” and your off. This app records Goals, Goal Scorers, Type of Goal, Cautions, Dismissals, Temporary Dismissals (even tells you when they can come back on and if there allowed back on or need to remain off for the rest of the game) and then once your game is finished then just hit sync and all this information is on your phone. Also it gives you your positioning, points on the field of play where you have given out cards, the distance you have covered, the different speeds you completed in the match and then all your game Information is logged on your profile for ever! Without a doubt a must get and the latest tool to have in your kit bag on every match day! #RefSix3rdTeamManager

Incredible refereeing app just lacks that little bit

Overall REFSIX is an incredible app and has made the past season a lot easier than previous. I am only using the free version because I choose to not pay the £3.99 a month for the pro version because I didn’t see any significant benefit but that might just be me. It is easy to navigate and use and has all the features needed. The only thing stopping me from giving it 5 stars was the timer being a count up and not a countdown. This is because I have the free version but have to try and work out how long is left when a player asks while attempting to focus on the game as well. A countdown means I can glance at the watch and say from what it says. Other than this, would 110% recommend for any level referee.
