    referee timer vs. G2300b-1v

    I read the thread from the crossfitter guy and i dabble in that world as well. I was wondering if getting the ref timer would be better so that way i can have different times for my intervals rather then just having an auto-repeat. But it seems that the g2300 would be a more everyday watch and the ref timer not so much.

    What do you all think??

    I think exactly the same as you. The G-2300 is a very fine watch, and the Ref Timer is... a Ref Timer.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    cool. I just like the thought of being able to set my workout period different from my rest period and have that keep going until i'm done. With the 2300 its going to be the same time and just on an autorepeat

    The G-2300B-1V is a wonderful everyday watch. It is a very easy watch to live with, IMHO. Very tough, comfortable, and full of features. I never feel as if I'm compromising when I wear it for extended periods of time.

    I do not own a DW56RT, but it looks fairly good on paper. It has a nice large display in timekeeping mode, although the display is somewhat unusual in how things are ordered. I do know that it is very comfortable on my wrist, as it shares the same case and strap as my GW-5600. Current time shows in both World Time and Countdown Timer modes, according to the pictures in the manual. The bummer for me is the short length and rather complicated timers, as well as the single alarm.

    I wouldn't mind trying out a Referee Timer, but I'm always happy to wear a G-2300.

    I have the ref timer features on the G056 (polygon) and it is perfect for exorcises where I need the rest periods to be different. I plan on buying a DW56RTB because apart from looking better IMO, the negative display isn't very clear on the G056, and even with the beeps I like to be able to see the display. The interval timer is now something I wouldn't want to be without.

    Even though I never use the Ref Timing functions on mine, I really like this watch. I find the display far easier to read (at a quick glance) than that of my DW5600E..

    If you are doing crossfit workouts and need an interval timer, the referee timer is the only G that has interval timers. They are highly readable. If you don't like the gold border, there is a model with dark blue as well.

    I'm not a referee or crossdresser...er, I mean crossfitter...LOL.. but I enjoy wearning my referee watch. Large display, very comfortable and I usually have a pre-set timer when I require that function.

    By the way... I have no idea what a crossfitter is. When I first saw those words, my mind read, crossdresser.... the only word my mind immediately associated with the letters crossfitter. I'm sure whatever it is you all do has nothing to do with dressing... please forgive me for my teasing. I am being a badddd boy today....

    It appears to be some extreme workout regime. The first time I've come across it is here. I would like to hear a little more about it. I'm 42 and struggling through my karate syllabus, and I'm always interested in new ways of improving my performance, although from the comments I've seen, this crossfitting might just finish me off lol.

    to the OP, if you need different timer intervals, then the ref timer is the only want to go

    otherwise, i would go with G2300

    since i don't need different timer intervals, i went with G23x0

    btw, i never set auto repear timer in the gym, cause the beeps might disturb other people
