What are Football Watches?
Watches are key to keeping track of time during football games and practices. They can range from regular wristwatches to stop watches, depending on player and coach preference. Either way, they are used to keep track of speed, endurance, and timing of games
In practices, coaches and players can use watches to time themselves to see how far they can run in a certain amount of time, or how fast they can run a certain length. This allows coaches and players to plan for game scenarios and match up players by speed during games.
In games, referees will use a watch to keep track of time so that each quarter is exactly the right amount of time. They will start the watch while the ball is in play, and stop it when the ball is dead. This mimics the game clock that is often seen on TV by spectators.
Athletes watches and stopwatches can be found at any sports supply store or online. They can be cheap or very pricy depending on the brand and its functions. Some watches are even customized to have special functions tailored to football referees, such as a game timer mode. Many watches can be customized, with many sports teams selling watches with their team colors and branding.
