Complicated, NO blue backlight (Illuminator) I was just looking for a simple sports watch with both a stopwatch and countdown timer, but this had a lot more than I expected (or needed). It has some timer features particularly for referees, which you may or may not find a use for. While all the features are easy enough to learn, having six modes means a lot of button presses (up to 6) to get back to the main mode. Fortunately, the main mode has a different beep sound, so you can keep pressing it quickly without looking until you hear it. It does what I need though with some complexity. Perhaps I will come to use the other features as well.Looks: Nice; a bit thick for my taste (about 1/2″; spec says .58″), but it seems a lot of men’s sports watches are like that these days- The main picture shown above is misleading – there is NO blue backlight, but a cheapish orange LED that emits from left side over a dull gray background. The word “Illuminator” inscribed at the top of the watch is also misleading. Correct me…

Great Referee Watch! I work as a football referee for youth through high school, and this watch has served me great when we need to keep time on the field. It has a set of pre-programmed count down timers that work great for field timing. Or, it has a feature where you can program in a custom time interval. So in the case of games, you can set up a time interval for each quarter, half-time, etc. Or, if your using it for a work out, you can program the intervals for wind sprints, 1 minute sprint, 30 second walk, etc.One of the complaints I noticed in the other posts was with regard to the backlight. It’s true it’s not the indeglow (sp?) backlighting, it’s just two LEDs on the right half of the face, however I have found it still easy to read using the backlight in a low light environment.I would say this is an excellent buy for the money, and would highly recommend it to a referee or as a general workout timing watch.

Great for interval training/crossfit type workouts I bought this watch primarily because I was using my phone as an interval timer, but it was a pain to have it in view constantly, and the app crashed occasionally (which really screws up a crossfit type workout when you have to stop, start the app again, and then get back to it).For that, it works great – I have it set for 60 > 20 > repeat – so I do my exercise for 60 seconds, max effort, rest for 20, 60, 20 – until I’m done. The interface is a little confusing at first, but they only have so many buttons to work with. For the price, I couldn’t find anything better.Other thoughts: I looked for a programmable watch that actually had two sets of intervals, that you could “link” – I do 10 exercises, and have a 120 second break, so ideally, the 60/20 would repeat 10 times, queue the 120 minute timer, you’d be able to set that combo to loop for 4 times (which is pretty much my workout). Not a huge deal, and I couldn’t find anything that did that – if this just had a…
