DIY Pomodoro PCB Watch - Boost Your Productivity!

If you’ve been looking for a way to supercharge your productivity and manage your time effectively, this DIY project is perfect for you.

I am a fan of productivity stuff, but I often find procrastinating after doing some work. I tried the Pomodoro technique and it suits me. But the problem is I use it on my phone, often sliding into social media. So I decided to make something off the phone and got the idea of making a watch. So, If you’re ready to enhance your productivity in style, let’s dive right in.

Introduction to the Pomodoro Technique
Before we jump into the project, let’s quickly talk about the Pomodoro Technique. It’s a time management method that involves breaking your work into focused intervals, typically 25 minutes, followed by a short break. This method helps to enhance your concentration and efficiency and also helps to reduce burnout.

I took inspiration from this project from Hackaday. Thanks to accidentalrebel

So to make it in a watch format we need to consider some important things, like:

It should be small (so we need a small microcontroller like the ATTINY85)
The battery should last long enough
It should be sturdy and neat. (so make it on a PCB)”
