What kind of time keeping device does the linesman use to keep on field time? Do they make a watch specifically for the 25/40 second play and game clock? Is a smart watch with an app the way to go? If some of you refs could give me some ideas on whether they use a watch specific to football function or a Smart watch with an app I would appreciate it. I am seriously considering breaking into the referee game at the youth weight ball level next season and I want to learn as much as possible in this off season. There is an Android wear app that looks good that you would use on a smart watch. Well anyway thanks for any guidance you fellows can give me.
