    I think that is a blue one.
    In certain low light the blue looks almost black, but isn't. If I was buying a blue one, I would just get a new one.
    (I wear a blue one.)

    The stopwatch is working fine, or mine is also broken. I'm betting on A.

    I think you're right. I've always been baffled by the stopwatch on mine.

    The stopwatch is working. The seller just doesn't know how to operate the watch.

    Why? are they out of stock or no longer made?
    I guess we made a good investment, certainly better than some others
    I had over the past 6-7 years!

    I got mine from an off the wall website about four or five years ago for $39.99. It was at the same time they were going for $80 on OSI. The band is getting a bit worn, and I've put like three batteries in it. Still runs like a champ. I never have used the stopwatch. Always the countdown.

    I couldn't figure out how to use the stopwatch on mine until somebody here told me how to do it. :oops:

    The stopwatch function is not good for timing a short event like a sprint, because it
    does not stop the tenths and hundredths of seconds. But it is fine for tracking the
    lost time in a match provided you remember to stop and restart it each time. Only one read-out stops and restarts. The other keeps going, so after 45 mins on the continuous read-out, the stopping one will show less time, say 42 m 35 sec, so you know to add 3 minutes. IMO this function is more useful
    for a 4th official, although not impossible to use while reffing, just an additional factor to think about.

    You can use both at the same time. The stopwatch gives the count-up time, all the better to record data with.

    My right wrist counts up. The RFT counts down.

    I never stop my watch because I usually forget to turn it back on.

    I just set the time for the half length and mentally keep track of how much time to add.

    For NFHS, I have another watch with stop watch function that I stop and start. Only 1 out of 5 times do I remember to restart so I end up going by the stadium clock backed up by the watch with running time.

    I just ordered an adidas 3127 at a pretty steep discount, I think it's the newest model (but I could be totally wrong) and I'm pretty excited to give it a try*
