I don't know about Apple, but my Samsung watch did this... two options, manually turn on the running tracking to capture that info independently, or turn off the "auto-detect running" option.I love the WTR watch app - think it's brilliant and dare I say during a tournament setting - I probably would be brave enough to just use the watch now rather than a score card.
Only thing I find annoying is when I'm tracking my distance - I've had to spend ages optimising my Apple Watch settings to get it to work 'correctly' - previously the watch would default to the run when I want it to stay with the WTR app. It is doable but a pain to make work.
I've seen posts that an Android WearOS version is complete and ready to be launched, but I don't think it is out yet.
However, I've been using this app on my Samsung watch since March:
Time, score, card keeping for Rugby Refereesplay.google.com
Honestly, I can't find a fault in it. It was buggy earlier this year, but after providing feedback to the developer, I've since tested several builds and provided input, and I think it now offers 99% of what you want/need.
It keeps track of clocks, scores, penalties, including player number for each event, handles extra time, several defaults formats (10 a side, beach, etc) and custom for kids game, for example. At the end of the game it saves a match report on the watch and syncs it to your phone. You can also setup your match info on the phone (easier with bigger screen) and then sync it with the watch app.
dont forget that a great android version already exists, ive highlighted it before. Very cheap, just need an android watch to run it. I think its excellent and has all the features you need. https://sportsofficialsolutions.com/referee-watch/
