Fight Distractions with Tools

Set up tools to use in Work Mode that will help you stay focused. Some tools will help you by blocking distractions or notifing you when you get distracted, while others will help you by reminding you to take breaks or engage in good habits.

Helpful Tool Recommendations

We'll recommend helpful tools to you based upon the activities that distract you.

Smart Watch

Easy Work Mode Toggling

You can easily activate work mode on your watch to enable your tools and to start getting real time feedback on your performance.

Real-Time Performance Feedback

The hand of your watch traces in color to indicate if you were being distracted or productive in real time as you work. This gives you some immediate feedback into how well you are doing during a work session.

Distraction Notifications

Your watch is an ideal place to use many of the tools we provide. Distraction notications will notify you when you get off task to remind you to stay focused.

Break Reminders

Taking breaks is an effective way to stay focused for long periods of work. The break reminder tool can tell you when and for how long to take breaks through the watch or the desktop.

Design Process & Documentation

We went through two major phases of development as we designed DisTrack. The first, called Getting the Right Design, was about defining the core tasks in our problem space, researching our target users, and brainstorming different high-level design solutions. The second, called Getting the Design Right, was about refining our design idea through usability testing and inspection based methods. We used rapid prototyping methods to develop our final design mockups for the desktop and watch and to create our video prototype.
