About Soccer Referee Pro

Soccer Referee Pro is the referee timer for the 99% of us who do multiple games in a weekend, don’t need to track subs, and just want to plan for, time, track, and learn from our matches in the most efficient way!

You MUST have an Android Wear watch to use Soccer Referee Pro (does not support Samsung Gear w/Tizen OS).

If you have Android Wear 2.0, install Soccer Referee Pro on your mobile device first and then install onto the Watch from the watch Play Store.

Instantly ready: just set the Half length (on the Watch or Mobile) and you’re ready to go. No team entry, no player names-and-numbers, no complicated setup.

- Reset to beginning of the half on a bad kickoff
- Adjust Added Time based on game conditions

Tournament friendly: leave your mobile in the tent/trailer and manage multiple games from the watch

Large, easy-to-read display with vibration alarms to keep your eyes on the players:
- Count up/down timers
- Added Time
- Extra Time
- Halftime
- Separate vibration alarms to signal starting, paused, and time-expired

Power management:
- Power Save for multiple games (10-20 games per charge)
- Dimmed mode for daytime games
- High contrast mode or full-color for night games

Integrated with your Google Calendar:
- Shows your upcoming games in Future Games

- Leave By alarm on the Watch to get you on the road in time

Kickoff, Goal, and Card management:
- Kickoff: optionally record which team (Home or Away) kicks off and from where
- Goals: Add/correct goals; optionally record player number
- Cards: Enter one of the 7+7 codes, team, and player number - warns you who is already on a card

What are users saying about Soccer Referee Pro

by O####:

Great app for the soccer referee who would rather use a smart watch and their Google account to manage and record their games. Creator is super responsive to ideas and suggestions - kudos!!

by K####:

Amazing referee timer! I love seeing all my future games on my phone with map links to drive there and an automatic alarm on the watch when I need to leave. But the best feature is the Past Game summary where you can see game detail, field coverage map , and fitness info. Good tournament features too - I leave my phone in the ref tent and my list of games is on the watch. It would be great if you could add location awareness so I could use this for tracking how far I drive to and from games for my taxes.

by H####:

Love all the features. Too many to list. A few things I love are count up or down, add time when clock has stopped, reminder clock has stopped, adding time when clock has stopped, reminder 1 min before and other times... If you are a referee or umpire do yourself and your players and teams a favor - start using the app.

by N####:

Rubbish, they take your money and then it cant be used on your watch; no support, they ignore you. Never buy it!

by E####:

This is an excellent app that offers numerous options to the referee. I don't think I will be turning to anything else after seeing this in action. Just read the description of what this app can do - it did not disappoint one bit.

by C####:

Updates to watch settings no longer apply after changes are made. For example, despite changing the length of a half and it looking as I set in the setting, on the watch front it has not changed. Same for all the settings. It is currently unusable to me. LG G Watch. The free version works fine.

by F####:

I'm enjoying this app so much. Really shows movement, coverage, times of goals, stoppages, times of yellow red cards. Very useful as you go up the levels. So much more too.

by Y####:

Needs support to suspend and resume game. Had a forty minute lightening suspension today after game had started , but had no way to stop time. Stoppage time was not appropriate, besides would have killed battery. Minor gotcha that is not apps fault is wet long sleeve kept triggering stoppage time. Makes a nice primary watch but you want a backup.

by J####:

A must have for any soccer ref with a smartwatch. I use it on all my devices and have never been disappointed.

by R####:

Great so from a responsive developer. Well with the upgrade from an already useful free version and be featured being added regularly. I've looked at similar apps that have a monthly fee and don't offer Fit or calendar integration, so I'm quite happy with this one. Does what it says on the tin and more.

by A####:

As a soccer referee I love this app. And the fact that the creator is always communicating updates, improvements and soliciting feedback is awesome. I have only ever experienced one bug. I communicated the problem and the issue was fixed within 24 hours!

by Z####:

I have been using this app since it was in beta and I absolutely love it. I use the pro version on any outdoor games on both SW3 and Moto 360 sport. and it typically lasts me for 3 games with SW3 and about 2 games with Moto 360 sport using GPS. That is more than enough for what I need it for. You can also extend the battery life a lot more by using power saving modes. As for the app, It is extremely easy to use and set up. You can set it up on the watch or on the phone and the app will remind you of your games and save your past games. it it better than that expensive square referee watch and it can track your movement on the pitch. Highly recommend. Update as of 9/11/2017: This app just gets better and better. I updated my Moto 360 Sport to AW 2.0 and the app developer already had the app optimized. There are some subtle changes to the way you use it ,but overall it's really impressive. Now you can see exactly how much ground you covered without going into the phone app or FIT. Also map data is more detailed.
