I have been using this app for over a year. It is fantastic. Turns my fenix 5 into a Spintso while i still get running distance as well as run mapping through the device. I use this CONSTANTLY. Love it

This is a question- I first downloaded the free version before I decided to pay. How do I get it updated on Garmin 745 to reflect the bought/paid version?

09 September 2020 | Version 5.12

I tried a bunch of different apps/data fields and none of those were really a great solution. This app, however, is the best. The app is really well done and give me all the information I need to serve a high level youth or amateur adult match. I love that it allows me to record each half as a separate running activity, but you can have it combine them if that is what you want. Finally got back to the pitch (post-covid) with this app and it worked flawlessly. Set the time (I have the paid version), then everything is just one button. Tracks half-time too!

I’m using this app since a long time and it’s the best one for referees. It’s clear and easy to use it. Nonetheless there’s still few points that I found necessary to work on: •time keeper during the warmup => Actually can’t know how long I’ve done during the WarmUp •For Cup Games —> ask if there’s overtime at the end of the 90’ like: “does the game end in a tie?” (Yes/No); if “Yes” then how long the overtime will be long...; “No” then we could simply save the session •There’s any chance to implement in the app the possibility to save the events of the games in it (goals, Yellow Cards, Red Cards; substitutions...)?

Hey Itaï, thank you for your feedback. 1: true, actually there is only the text displayed. As it is not the most important thing to do it won't be changed in the next two weeks, but I will place it to my "To-Do-List". 2: Just to make sure, you know you can set the overtime period time in your settings? If the game is not a tie you can just abort the game (press back three times) and save the activity. Of course the overtime settings need to be turned in before the match. 3: I dont think so. Reason: The app is available for many many devices (mostly all). As there are devides with less memory these devices can't be adopted to that. Another point against is that I want to keep the app what is is: a timer. If you have any further questions don't hestitate to contact me via [email protected]

Excellent, easy to use & very clear to read during the match. The vibrating reminder when the timer has been stopped is excellent. Just wish I'd upgraded to get the extra time version for my 1st game!

Great app that I have used since my Spintso watch bit the dust. Would love it if the counter (elapsed time) for the 2nd half went from 90 but otherwise just what I need. We'll done :)

I've enjoyed using this app for but over the past couple of months there have been bugs introduced that crash the app. I am currently running 5.11.1.

07 November 2019 | Version 5.10.2

The layout is a bit better after latest version but activity data still overlapping the bottom timer. And watch still has issues after backing out of the app on Fenix 6x. Contact developer not working

Do not install on vivoactive 3 music. Messed up watchface restart didn't fix face had to delete app reinstall watch face.

And of course this is a reason not to contact the developer and do a 1* review for the app which is working for mostly everyone else on the same watch? I use the Vivo 3 Music myself for about 3 matches per weekend and dont have any problems... Why cant you just drom me a mail?

22 October 2019 | Version 5.9.4

Excellent app, keeps track of my game time and exactly where I am in the field (steps, stride length, hr etc).

Stopped working on my FR 645. Anyone else experiencing same problem. Great App and used to work just fine up until last week.

Ich bin seit gut 6 Jahren Schiedsrichter und habe schon so einige SR Uhren genutzt auch die Elite von Spintso. Keine kommt an die App heran. Die hat einfach alles was man als ambitionierter SR brauch. Die 5 € für die Pro-Version sind gut angelegtes Geld. Die zusätzlichen Möglichkeiten sind super. Bin froh dies so nutzen zu können.

Highly recommend the app; been using the 'pro version' for 3 seasons and only problem was drop-outs of the app, which Winder avidly looked for solutions until he found it was my old fenix 3 watch; not the app and a watch reset fixed it. I particularly like: a) the smaller font setting, which means you have clear view of the time up & down and stoppage time, b) the vibration function when stoppage time is running, which you can set to very short intervals, so you never forget to restart, and c) setting the watch light to stay on for night games, so you can easily glance down at the times during the game. Well done! Can't wait for each improving version.

Dan Mergens

This app (Pro version with my Forerunner 235) is the best referee watch solution I have found. Let me tell you why: - includes vibration reminders (which are a must!) - reliable start/stop timer (eg the iWatch uses haptic which is unreliable, and the Spintso requires a full second press which sometimes doesn't work) - count up/down timer on the same screen - easy to configure for each match (time duration, no required team info like some other apps) - tracks fitness records with the standard Garmin running app including GPS (although the iWatch has an app that includes heatmap) - tracks GPS fairly reliably (the iWatch is pretty bad) Here are some improvements: - The bottom time is the current time and switches to added time - would be better if they were both visible at the bottom for situations where an end time is required. - The top timer should be a little larger - It would be nice if notifications were disabled while the timer is running (or have the option to do so) I highly recommend this app (and my Forerunner 235).

I would recommend this app... Have been using it for a two seasons on Fenix 5x and have had no trouble with it. Does exactly what it is designed to do.

22 April 2019 | Version 5.8

DO NOT BUY THIS APP Every time I try to use the app, on my Fenix 3 HR it crashes my watch and I lose all of my daily tracking. I have attempted to contact the Developer 3 times by email but to no avail, and have had to resort to publishing this unfavourable response. I have the pro version and have actually bought it twice because I lost the activation code when I switched previously. When it works it’s wonderful, but right now, I can’t trust it to not crash my device. PLEASE get in contact to resolve this issue.

Hi Jon, thanks for your feedback. But please play fair... 1. I didn’t receive any email from a ‚Jon‘. You can write me at [email protected] or via contact developer here. Please, if you chose the contact developer way, don’t forget to write your correct mail. Otherwise I can’t write back... 2. it’s true, there is an issue with the Fenix 3. But, this is an issue I can’t solve. This is in the fenix 3 firmware... 3. many other users contacted me as they have lost their code or bought a new watch. Andy everybody of them received their code again. I can’t do anything if you bought it twice... Maybe we will get to a common solution...

I got Pro version. After couting up the setup time, I prefer that the vibration is keeping continuously (not once every 30 seconds).

Hi Sebastian, please read the description. There is a pro version where you will be able to change the time

Eine Minute nach meiner Anfrage, kam die Antwort mit Erklärung und Bildern. Das finde ich stark. Die App selbst ist sehr gut.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
