Stopwatch for referees

A referee must stay focused at the game. Timekeeping must be done in a good way and Whistle can help with this by supporting the referee.

A match consists of 1 or more periods, for example 2 halves or 4 quarters. For each period the duration and optional pause (rest) time can be set. Whistle can also alert the referee by means of vibration and / or sound when nearing the end or at the end of a period.

Whistle can also keep track of the score and possible cards that are issued. In case a card has a penalty time, Whistle will indicate at the right time that the time has elapsed and the player can participate in the match again.

Finally, at the end of the match, Whistle gives an overview of the match with the registration of goals, cards, times and periods.

Whistle is designed with field hockey in mind, but can also be used with other sports. For example indoor hockey, soccer and other types of team sports for which time needs to be kept per period.

There is also a Whistle variant available for watch, phone and TV. It becomes possible to share a match using a match code that can be generated by Whistle. Others can enter this match code in their Whistle variant to follow the shared match (time, score, cards, etc). When a referee changes the score or pauses the match, all linked devices will see that nearly instantly.
