No matter what I set the Countdown Timer to, when I hold the down/reset button, it always resets to 99 minutes. Here is the reply from Sportcraft customer service:
It is a programming error, they all do that. Going forward, we will fix this problem, but for now, they will have to reenter the Count Down time they want to start at.

The real beauty of this whistle watch is that the official can use his whistle, his watch and his hands. As a high school backjudge I have a responsibility to "triangulate" the ball when it goes to the side zones (esp. out-of-bounds) back in to the umpire while keeping the clock going or stopping it when the scoreboard clock is inoperative. This combination whistle watch allows that to happen without missing any one of the duties, which also include blowing the whistle to kill the action around the ball.
