Used this app for over 2yrs with a FR735xt without any issues, very simple to use and is great as both an activity tracker and secondary timer, although recently I've started using it as the primary method due to the ease of use. The ability to see both time elapsed and to go is great as it helps you answer that regular question of how long is left without having to work it out on the run. The ability to change half lengths is great if you have two games with two different match lengths (like they do here in Australia). Great app and have recommended it to my referee peers as the ideal smartwatch timer app

Looks nice, the big font of the countdown timer is great. but i need to test in a real match. So far 2 comments. The upwards counter in the top coyld have a bit bigger size In my sport I need to give a sign when last minute of the game has been reached. So a vibration when 1 minute is left would be great. Customizable eis preffetred off course

Great, but I don’t need gps on by default as I don’t want to use up battery power.

Great! You can turn it off from the Options menu then.

28. Mai 2020 | Version 1.1

The current version is much more difficult to operate than prior, simpler versions. I don’t want to have GPS on by default. I can use a running or walking app for that. I also want to restart a 2 minute timer, for example, with only 1 click. Older version was way better.

Antwort des Entwicklers

You can turn GPS off from the menu and it will stay off until you turn it on again. I'm also interested to hear which sport you are refereeing which has 2 minute periods.

Does not work for vivoactive 3 music...same problem as the other reviewers.

Hi, there's been a change to the SDK and some functions this app uses are now deprecated. It's a lot of work to change it to the newer version and I'll get to it when I have some time. It's as annoying for me as it is for you.

Super app voor hockeywedstrijden. Alleen gps loopt door als tijd voorbij is en opnieuw klaar staat.

2. November 2019 | Version 0.9

I have the vivoactive 3 music , can't start timer . If you press the screen from the time you selected it goes to the setup page . If you push the button on the watch it goes back to the activity page

Nice application. Here are my requests for better use: 1. Bigger font size and white color for preset time. 2. Continuous time counting for preset timer after counting a preset time. 3. Continuous counting up for actual time after counting down, Plus vibration alert (I want to know the overtime after preset count down).

“Custom Time” doesn’t work on Forerunner 245 which shows IQ! only. When pausing the timer, could it pause the duration watch too?

Hi, Garmin have deprecated the NumberPicker function which displays the option to select a custom time. This is from SDK 3.0.0. Older devices will still be able to use this but I will address it in the next update. Thanks for pointing it out.

Nick Crofoot
25. August 2019 | Version 0.9

Even though it says it compatible with the Vivoactive 3 Music, it apparently isn't. After setting duration, no way to start. All variations of taps, swipes, button pushes exit the timer.

Good app! Handy it enables countdown as well as GPS tracking. My only suggestion would be a timer for cards but I can use my refereeing skills for this as the app does everything else.. thanks!

Hi Tyler, I'd be happy to hear your thoughts on how best this could work. Drop me a note via the "Contact Developer" link and let's have a chat.

Hello, I was using the app on my old garmin 235, and I'm very bad to see that the app is not available for my new 645 music... Can you check if it can run on this last one? Regards

Hi! Sorry it's taken so long but I've now found my old developer key and have updated the app. A whole lot more devices supported (incl yours) and activity tracking added.

Great app, very basic, but gets it right. Not too sure the app allows me to track my games as a run though. Not sure if this is a garmin issue or an app issue

Antwort des Entwicklers
15. Juni 2019, Gofasterdjh

Hi! This was a developer issue (i.e. I hadn't enabled it). It's there now if you update the app. The whole timer session is now a "generic" activity but it does log all of the activity info incl GPS positioning. Hope you like it.

With respect to game time durations, in soccer or futsal, I see every five minute interval between 20 and 45 over the course of a year. Imagine that other sports also vary period times shorter than standard for youth matches.

You can change the tie periods to any number of minutes and seconds that you want. Press the "Down" button from the timer view to change to your required time interval.

Dovrebbe esserci anche la suoneria insieme alla vibrazione e cessare solo allo schiacciamento del bottone START, così è un po' dificile accorgersi che il tempo è scaduto

Antwort des Entwicklers
28. März 2017, Gofasterdjh

Non voglio i giocatori di sapere quando il tempo è finito. Io voglio solo sapere. Se sentono la suoneria si fermeranno e aspettare per me di soffio il fischio.

As a football referee I'd like to be able to reset the top timer to use as a 40 or 25 second play clock. The main timer counting down is great but I need one on top to handle play clock. Unless there is a way to reset top without resetting the middle one?

Antwort des Entwicklers
28. März 2017, Gofasterdjh

That's a fair comment but it starts running out of screen real estate quickly. I was thinking of an additional timer for yellow cards or similar for rugby but it starts getting fiddly.

Great app! Couple of requests, if possible... 1) Could you make 45, 40, 35, 30 mins the standard selections? Currently 35 is not a standard option. 2) When the countdown timer expires, the device should vibrate for a longer period of time, 30 seconds for example, unless user turn it off sooner Currently, it's 2 seconds. Thanks again for a great referee app.

Antwort des Entwicklers
12. Juni 2019, Gofasterdjh

Hi, we now have 45, 40, 35 and 30 as standard options; with tht option of the Custom Timer too. I'll get on to the vibrations when I have some more time but that's a good idea

Nice app. Maybe a field for scores? I am korfball referee in Holland. Thank you!

Works well as a straight timer, but I have better 'Referee watches'. What I'd like to see is the timer that collects all my activity data as well-HR Pace Distance and GPS. Now I wear one Ref Watch to track time and my garmin to track everything else. It would be great just to have one do all of the fuctions.

Antwort des Entwicklers
12. Juni 2019, Gofasterdjh

Hi, sorry it's taken so long but that's all in the app now.

2. Oktober 2016 | Version 0.5

Really good job with the app! I am using a FR235 and I was looking for something like this for a while now. My biggest suggestion would be to add an another data screen where we could find all our fitness data, so we could track our activity on the field... I am soccer referee, and I would love to be able to track my data with your app.

Hi - that's in the app now. Please get the update.

24. September 2016 | Version 0.5

Unfortunately not very useful yet for me as a soccer referee. 1. When I press the back button on my vovoactive HR it stops counting. Should only stop when I press the stop button 2. The main timer only counts down, for game documentation I need the main timer to count up from 0 3. The second timer which counts up does not pause when I pause the main timer 4. I would like to have the seconomy timer to count a timeout or a time penalty while main counter continious. Maybe a touch button at the bottom (at least on Vovoactive HR) might be possible. 5. To make sure the timer does not stop by fault e.g. when the shirt arm bound touches the screen it would be better to not start and stop the counter by touch. Rather using the OK button. 6. Would like to also have 25 and 30 min as standard timer numbers. Hope this helps for the future. Please continue with the good work so far.

25. September 2016, Gofasterdjh

Thanks for your feedback, it is useful to understand the behaviour on different devices. 1) I can only use the simulator to test the various models of watches as I only have a FR235. When you press the back button on the Vivoactive HR it seems to take you out of the app completely. If you are exiting the app then the counter will indeed stop. If you press on the screen or on the right button then the timer will pause. 2) This is intended functionality. The main timer counts down from your selected time and can be paused. The smaller timer at the top counts up and does not stop counting. If you need to record actual game time you should use the top game timer. This is how most referee watches work. One timer keeps track of the elapsed time since the beginning and the other of the actual playing time. 3) Yes, this is intended. The smaller timer shows you how long since the game started, the main timer shows you how much actual playing time is left. 4) I am looking into doing this for the next major release. I am planning on including another timer(s) to keep track of sin bins. 5) In order to keep this app generic enough to work on a variety of watches I have used the most common functions that apply to each of them. Other watches without touch screens do not have this problem and from what I can see it would necessitate a separate app to create. The code is up on github if you would like to modify the app for your specific device. 6) I wanted the config screen to be as simple as possible so have only included timers for the most common usages (45 min for soccer, 40 min for rugby, 30 min for u16 rugby). If I add any more timers it makes that screen more difficult to use. The app also "remembers" your last timer so if you set it to use 25 mins it will reset to 25 mins the next time you open the app. Please email me via the "Contact developer" link if you would like to add/ reply to this and hopefully I can address your concerns.

Hi. Negative is that if i go back to start menu the timer resets automaticly , it should still be running and only stop if i choose that manually. Other than that its a great app

Antwort des Entwicklers
22. September 2016, Gofasterdjh

Hi, would you be able to send me some more details via the "Contact developer" option on the app download page? The timer only resets once the time runs out. If you go to the menu to reset the timer then it pauses the Actual time but the Game time still keeps running. It would be great if you could let me know the steps to reproduce so I can fix if necessary. Thanks for the feedback.

Excellent App! Works very well.... Suggestions: Add an interface for scores?

Antwort des Entwicklers
14. September 2016, Gofasterdjh

Thanks for the review and suggestion. Which sport would you like scores added for? Might need to release a separate version for single score sports (e.g. soccer, hockey) and another for those with different values per goal (e.g. rugby, NFL.)
