FREE Referee App for Apple Watch Users

Are you a referee? (of course you are)

Have an Apple Watch?

If so, there is a really good app out there for your watch:

You can run the app independently on Apple watch or the iPhone. You can also download settings from iPhone to the Apple Watch if you prefer.

See how to set it up on the watch:
https://youtu.be/7ncofHu6bts

The app has three timers – game clock, stoppage clock and elapsed time. Elapsed time starts at zero and runs uninterrupted during the game. Game clock and stoppage clock are tied together – either game clock is running during the game or stoppage clock is running. Works much like a SPINTSO

The best part is that once you’re game is completed, you can sync it with your phone and send yourself a complete match report with all goals, cautions and send offs, including all the times.

Referee futsal?  The app also has a foul counter!

To get the app for free, just go to the app store on your phone, and look for a link to input this code – 6NWKJL6EKMRF.
The link should be at the very bottom of the screen.  Code will expire on February 21, 2018

Happy Whistling
