I use the watch to referee soccer. It has a countdown function which is needed for high school games. The same countdown function will also start counting up after reaching the end of the coundown. I love the low price for this watch. I like that this watch will stay in countdown mode once you set it and start it. Be aware that before you start a countdown or if you pause a countdown, the watch will switch back to the time function after about five (5) seconds of inactivity.
