Gadgets and Tech to Help You Focus

Hourglass Focus Timer

“The Focus Timer helps you make time for what’s truly important.

  1. Think of the task you need to finish or something you have been meaning to do but haven’t been able to dedicate the time to.


  1. Turn the timer over and spend the next 30 minutes focusing on your chosen task and only that task.


  1. Repeat as necessary. Use your Focus Timer any time you feel like you could use a moment to truly focus.”

Why we love it: 

This amazing little timer is a perfect focus aid for any student! Simply use it for 30 minute intervals (Power Sessions) or incorporate it into your task batching cadence. The sleek and eye-catching design looks great on any desk. 

Productivity Planner 

“Put productivity on your to-do list. Make prioritization a priority. Accomplish greater results in lesser amounts of time. The Productivity Planner takes advantage of the Pomodoro Technique, empowering you to focus your mental energy on the most meaningful tasks ahead. So, you can take advantage of every moment of every day.”

Why we love it:

Another one of our favorites is from the Intelligent Change shop. This Power Session/Pomodoro-friendly planner is a great tool to help you get organized, and stay organized. We also love that this planner features inspirational quotes and a place to document weekly wins, or a weekly reflection. 

Timeflip 2 Interactive Time Tracker 

“TIMEFLIP2 is designed to make logging time an intuitive and enjoyable task. This interactive time tracker is working beyond just clocking time. With Pomodoro timer, it splits work in sprints for maximum efficiency. It works with a mobile app that lets you assign relevant tasks. After the gadget is set up, one simply places it on a flat surface to start logging time for a task that faces up. The gadget uses Bluetooth LE to connect to a smartphone and transmit accumulated data (time logs) into the app and then to the AWS cloud storage. The app is just used to visualize, process, and edit the collected time data. The gadget is designed to work completely offline and does not require a mobile to be open to operate it.”

Why we love it: 

This is another great Power Session/Pomodoro-friendly tool. This digitally compatible time tracker is designed to help you batch your tasks, remember to take breaks and stay focused.


“Revibe Connect is a wearable, non-medication option to help kids pay attention and stay on-task. The watch uses vibration reminders and text cues to refocus users. The connecting app tracks focus, attention, and exercise, which as part of a healthy lifestyle, may help living well with ADHD.”

Why we love it: 

This device resembles a watch and is a modern solution to help students stay focused. The small vibrations work as a helpful nudge to encourage you to stay focused, and if your mind wanders, brings your attention back to the task at hand.
