The referee timer with activity tracking for your Apple Watch!
Create different presets for senior or junior matches on your iPhone and use them on Apple Watch for your next match.
During the match, your steps, distance traveled, calories burned and heart rate are recorded. This happens automatically so that you can concentrate on your match.
After the match you will see all recorded values in the Referee Watch App and in the official "Activities" and "Health" App. If your Apple Watch supports GPS*, you will also receive a map including the route you ran during the match.
* at least Apple Watch Series 2 required
• Complications for the Apple Watch are now available
• Before extra time starts, you will be asked whether the match has already been decided
• Minor bug fixes

Simple is better
Updated idea: After about 30 more matches and 4 over this past weekend at a playoff tournament, and me recommending the app to 4 other referees, I have another suggestion. This as to do with the visibility of the timers and space on the watch face. While refereeing I have never made use or even looked at the heart rate or distance covered information. My suggestion is to remove them to provide more space for larger numbers with the timers. I really like getting a record of all the health information, but I review that after the matches. Not during.
Looking forward to the new version in the works.
I’ve used this app for about 20 matches now and I really like it. It does the core function of keeping time quite well. Other apps have all sorts of additional functions such as keeping track of the score, cautions, etc. but the last thing I want to be doing is standing on the pitch fiddling with my watch while everyone is waiting for the match to resume. Writing down goals or disciplinary actions isn’t so hard I need an app for it.
My one suggestion is to try and get the numbers as large as possible. Use up every bit of real estate on the watch face. And if the added time function isn’t selected it would be nice if the count down timer had somewhat larger numbers. Otherwise, nice app!

Thank you for your honest feedback! That's exactly the idea behind the app. Simple timekeeping with statistics on athletic activity. We are currently working on a new, improved version, with new features. Coming later this year. Stay tuned!
Almost what I need...
I'm a referee for the AUDL (Ultimate), and a couple more features could really make this work well. I need the ability to adjust the timer when it's paused in order to reset it to match the game clock or if I forgot to stop it. Also, the ability to keep score would be very helpful.
Where are my matches?
I need a bit of help with looking at my matches. I do not see my fitness part on here or anything. The app does not do what it said it did.

I'm sorry you're having trouble with the app. Please check in the Settings App whether you have activated all necessary "Health" rights for the Referee Watch App: Open settings app > go to "Health" > select "Data" / "Sources" -> select "Referee Watch". Activate everything here. Now it's best to restart the Watch once. Then it should work.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
