+ Can I use REFSIX without an Apple Watch?
Not really. We designed REFSIX to be quick and easy to use during the match and for that reason, all of the match incidents can only be recorded through the Apple Watch. Without an Apple Watch you can download and login to the mobile app, create fixtures and view any historical matches.

+ Do I need my iPhone with me while refereeing a match?
No, we’ve designed the app to work in such a way you only need your Apple Watch with you on the pitch. You can sync data between your iPhone and Apple Watch before and after the match.

+ Do I need access to wi-fi or an internet connection?
No, on match day no internet connection is necessary.

+ What if I don't receive teamsheets before a game?
No problem, you can simply select player numbers without player names.

What's New

Version 2.3.0

Temporary Dismissals (Sin-Bins) are now supported by the app! You can use System A for all countries and System B for selected countries. Configure this when you create a new fixture. On the watch this means you'll be notified when timer starts and ends and whether player can return to play or not.
PRO: New watch face layout available with bigger timers - change from settings.

Overall I couldn’t recommend refsix highly enough ...give it a try...u won’t go back to pen and paper again...grassroots ref

Top app for referees


This is app is insane and gets better with every update. So easy and helpful for new referees and the older ones. Can help you out so much to quickly do it on your watch rather than getting pen and notebook out. 100% worth getting!



Having used Refsix for 6 months I am over the moon with the app and the user experience and totally gutted that after upgrading my Apple Watch to a Tag Heuer it won’t be compatible with my iPhone 😖😖. Don’t hesitate to try this app it is brilliant!
