With LittleBen you can send haptics feedback in relation to time, in the background and with different modalities, among them:
Why would I find it useful:
Situations in which you need to know how much time has passed and you have difficulties to see the watch screen (Public speaking, Work, While you are walking, While you are swimming)
You can save the sessions to see the number of minutes/hours consumed.
*Minute counter / Hour counter: A number of minutes with haptic signals will be sent. For example, if you start the session when 3 minutes pass your Apple Watch will vibrate 3 times and so on until you stop it.
*Hour Chime: When an hour is reached you would receive the
number of the hour in a haptics amount. For example, at 5 o'clock you will receive 5 vibrations and so on until you stop it.
*Specific mode of minutes/hours to count.
You can change the type of haptic to be very soft or stronger
You can select haptics manually to start dozens (In the case of 12 minutes or 12 hours the 10 will be a specific haptic unlike the unit)
LittleBen updates with new interactions, a brand new design and fancy animations! :
- Custom mode has been added, now you can select a time range easily with the digital crown, or even increase or decrease it swiping left or right.
- Now you can check your last session information while you select different feedback modes.
- New selection mode, browsing by rotating the digital crown.
- New feedback screen: Now it offers more information related to the started session.
- Now you can swipe from pile up haptics or receive a single one.

Bizarre interface with limited options
Things you can't do, solely because the interface is weird: disable the sound, set a time less frequent than every 30sec, see the entire timer, etc.
Developer Response ,
Hi Tyler Menezes, I'm sorry to ear that. I would like to inform that I will rollback to the original version with a native interface and proven working timers. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Still no update
It’s been about 6 months since the dev said they would revert to a more stable version, but as you can see, that hasn’t happened.
I wouldn’t recommend downloading this because (1) it takes over your watch screen, even if you close the app, (2) the app keeps on forgetting the custom time you set for it, and (3) there is no silent mode without the noise.
It’s pretty sad that all the chime apps pretty much have these problems.
A completely baffling interface makes what should be a very useful app completely useless. Basic timer functions, such as setting and starting a timer, are impossible to set.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
