I have been refereeing for mini/youth rugby for a while, but using a normal sports watch. I found that it was unreliable to use the small display and buttons to start/stop timing matches. After a bit of research I found this one. Having used it at several festivals now I can say that I am very happy with it. The display is large and clear to allow quick glances to check progress. I use the Count Down facility that I configure to the time for each half. As it gives an alarm "Beep" at the end of the timed period, and then starts to count up, it allows for any extra time olayed to be recorded. The buttons are easy to access for Start/Stop so reliable operation is easy to achieve. The textile/velcro wrist strap is comfortable to wear for long periods. The only draw back to this watch is that the Time of Day is not displayed with either the Count Down Timer or Stopwatch mode. But thats a minor issue. To sum up; a good basic sportswatch, ideal for refereeing. Finally, the service from Fastime is 2nd to none.

Watch arrived the day after I ordered it even though I did not place order until late afternoon. As a football referee I am very pleased with product because it is so easy to use and clear to see. No more jokes about referees eyesight because watch face is so large! Just what I have wanted for some time and would recommend to others who need a good and reasonably priced stopwatch.

I am training for a 50 mile Ultra Marathon Trail Race. As I do my interval training and tempo runs I could not read the numbers of my Soleus GPS watch. Even with a headlamp on or the early morning sunlight I still could not read it. The numbers are too small and the backlight is not helpful at all. With my Fastime 11 Watch those are no longer issues or problems for me! The numbers are very large, digital numbers. I can read them easily with a headlamp on or in the early morning sunlight. The backlight is also all I hoped it would be. I will start training for a half ironman in a year or so. I am looking forward to be wearing my watch on the long bikes rides so it can be easily read. Fastime has the products for any and every athlete at any level. If you are a referee at any level you will also find all of your sporting event needs met by their products as well. Love, love, love my Fastime 11 watch!

This watch is great. It does what it says - and measures time with a large clear display, which means I can go running without my reading glasses, and easily see my elapsed time. For some, inexplicable, reason the standard makes that you buy in high street outlets stop showing the seconds on the large display, after 30 minutes . The SW6 simply displays the minutes and seconds up to one hour on the stopwatch, and then starts again, which is fine for my use. It has all the other standard features you would expect, with dual time, a countdown timer etc., and the service from the company is good too. To cap it all, it is cheaper than the equivalent watches from the high street outlets... so this is the watch and the place to buy it.

As a football referee the last thing you want to admit is that at times you need glasses. Well for reading I do and sometimes for some watches I struggle with the display. Not with this watch. Absolutely perfect, the digits for the time or countdown cover over 50 % of the screen. If you can’t see them then you do need glasses. Great watch easy to set and reset on countdown or stopwatch. I will probably order another as back up for my second watch. Delivery on time and no problem. May not help my decision making but at least I know when I made the mistake😉

I use this watch for hockey umpiring and I am delighted with it. The digits are large and easy to read even under floodlights. Countdown mode is excellent but make sure you get the SW6R, the other model can reset itself when you dont want it to. Excellent. Service from Fasttime / astopwatch was first class. I had a problem with the display of the first watch and they replaced it immediately before I had even returned the original. Overall - delighted.
