    1. Great Watch

      Posted by Hector Renza on 1st Feb 2018

      This is by far the best time keeping piece There is. Easy to set, reset and manage in general. I'm really happy with it.

    2. The Best Referee Watch

      Posted by Mike B on 27th Dec 2017

      I believe this to be the best referee watch out there. It's simple to setup, operate, and see while refereeing. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it doesn't have GPS and HR tracking. Sure, you can get GPS watches with apps that provide that additional functionality, but you sacrifice battery life (it goes from years with this watch to hours). I use this watch as my primary watch with a GPS watch/app as my backup. It took me a while to finally take the plunge and buy this, and I wish I had bought this watch when I started out. I think this watch should be a component of every serious referee's kit.

    3. Make it Digital

      Posted by Eric Esse on 19th Aug 2017

      By making your watch similar to a Apple Watch screen. All these problems of DST, 1 second holding of down button (is a waist in College and High School games. Need to have a choice on 1 second or no seconds), light to see in dark will be much better and also can give a choice of a 3 second or 5 second or 10 second reminder vibrate. The band is excellent and the size of the watch. please switch to a full digital touch screen and button watch. Please give an option to turn off the touch screen and only use the buttons.

      --- Referee Store Reply ---

      Please allow us to address your points for all:

      1 - DST (Daylight Saving Time) is a feature ONLY available in regular watch mode, NOT in Referee Mode and most find it really useful as we transition between DST from time to time.

      2 - The 'Press and Hold' rather than just 'Press' in order to change the watch screen or activate/deactivate referee features is designed on purpose to avoid any accidental presses during the game. It is a safety feature much loved by all who purchase it, especially in HS and NCAA matches where the stopping of the clock is so common.

      3 - Backlight does exist on Spintso watches, but I understand you would like to have options of changing its duration (feature request we will pass along, along with others you mentioned).

      Thank you

    4. Nice Watch

      Posted by Unknown on 7th Dec 2016

      Nice watch, the numbers are large, easy to read, the times are simple to set, large side buttons for operation, and so far has been useful. If you are a new referee, I would suggest you start with the $10-$40 watches because they will count down and most will give you an audible alarm. The biggest difference for me is this watch vibrates, has no tone alarm for match play, and has a setting for number of periods and timer for between halves. I'm still on the fence about how well this performs over the less expensive watches, but we'll see when I get some inclement weather to put this watch through the test.

    5. Almost perfect

      Posted by Kurt on 18th Jul 2016

      I would say this is the perfect watch for soccer refereeing except for two things:

      1 - the press & hold takes too long. Not a big deal except when you need to do it on the move--trying to hold the button down while running. (Start of half as AR, etc.)

      2 - the mode button is also press & hold to switch modes, but annoyingly press without hold switches between DST and regular time. Who needs to do this so easily quickly? Granted this only affect the non-game (real time) clock, but given that it constantly switches, I am constantly questioning if it is ±1 hour...

    6. Excellent Rugby Ref Watch

      Posted by Tim on 22nd Jun 2016

      Great watch to use when reffing rugby. Large viewable screen. Keeps track of any time functions associated with rugby...i.e. each half, sin bin, etc. Highly recommended!

    7. Great primary watch for any referee

      Posted by Unknown on 24th May 2016

      This watch is the gold standard for referee timepieces. The silent vibrating alarms are great to let you know that it is time for the half, time to start the second half and the end of the match without anyone else overhearing a beep. Also the count-down and count-up timers on the same screen make determining which minute it is and how much time is left in the match or half extremely easy. That half second it normally takes to do that math is eliminated. This is very useful for referees who do multiple competitions where the length of match varies.

      The only two complaints I have about the watch, and whyou I couldn't give it five stars, are that the periods you program into the watch all have to be the same length and that it is too easy to switch back and forth from daylight savings time to standard time.

      The period programming should allow for you to plan for extra time at the beginning of the match and not require you to reset the watch after full time has elapsed. For example you should be able to enter the two 45 minute half with a 15 minute halftime interval, followed by two 15 minute halfs for extra time where there is a two minute break. Or whatever the timing needs to be for the given competition. While it seems like a minor complaint Spintso has already thought of nearly everything else, why not include this feature?

      As for my second complaint, it only takes one quick press of the lower left button to switch the watch from DST to standard time. Perhaps the fix is as simple as requiring a long press for that change, however it is very easy to inadvertently switch your time back and forth and this is the second reason why I can not give a full five stars.

      Overall this is the best watch I have seen and used for refereeing and I would recommend it to all referees, despite my two complaints.

    8. Very helpful product, can take a while to get used to

      Posted by Andrew Page on 25th Feb 2016

      First let me start off by saying that this is a VERY useful product and it has been worth every single cent.

      My favorite feature is (by far) the stoppage time counter. If you're working a USSF affiliated match with a continuously running clock, this feature is very useful for tracking how much added time to give towards the end of the period. If you're working a high school match with control over the clock, this feature is useful for ensuring that the timekeepers are accurate.

      That said, it can take quite a while to get used to these features. I can't tell you how many times I've forgotten to stop time on my watch when I do so on the field.

      Overall this is a great product!

    9. Great watch until it comes time to replace battery

      Posted by Unknown on 12th Jan 2016

      Great watch with all the functions. Changing the batteryleaves a lot to be desired. The pins holding the watch band are not very strong. The bands have ti be removed in order to access the battery compartment. Hope the new version made this improvement and as a result a lot easier to replace the batteries.. Great product service from soccersuperstore. Keep up the good work.

    10. The Complete Time Keeping Device

      Posted by C. Page on 10th Dec 2015

      A little "involved" to learn (Spintso's English manual is overly complicated—think IKEA) but once I got the hang of it in actual use, it's a very easy to use, facile device. I swear by it. Continuous count-up match time, added time, half time interval, a stop and start count down, all with the vibration feature make this watch extremely efficient and takes the math out of your brain and onto your wrist. NFHS or USSF, it's the perfect device. I do 4-10 games a week 10 months a year so my battery life is about a year before I have to change it so far. The display light is a breath of fresh air under stadium lights, very bright, very clear and numbers are big enough to see easily under any conditions.
