Limited offer: upgrade to SILO Pro for Apple Watch Complications and more, for a lifetime purchase.

Pomodoro-style focus timer made for the Apple Watch.

With distractions all around the hardest part is getting started. With Silo Focus, a tap on the wrist reminds you to focus and take breaks. Silo on the Apple Watch lets you work in quiet spaces (library or office) without disturbing those around you.

Focus-Break (pomodoro) method: 25 minutes of focus with 5-minute breaks in between. Studies show that taking breaks between periods of uninterrupted focus is a healthy way to boost productivity. Having this super power right on your wrist, makes it even better.

How it works (phone or watch)
1. List your top tasks of the day
2. Pull up your Apple Watch (or iPhone), and hit FOCUS
3. A tap on the wrist tells you when to take a break and back to focus
4. Rinse and repeat

- #1 focus timer on Apple Watch
- Haptic feedback for discreet focus
- Auto-pause between each focus-break
- Adjust timer intervals right from your watch
- Distraction-free mode in airplane mode
- Pause and resume a session

Not working well with my Apple Watch.

Thank you dev for responding. I have raised the my rating from my original 1-star because I believe it is something with Apples software that is causing the bug. The symptom I have originally described has happened with other apps as well, not just yours.

Basically the only fix is uninstalling and reinstalling again... unfortunately it just stops working randomly and the only fix is uninstalling and reinstalling again which is a real hassle. Again this is happening with a lot of timer apps including fitness timers on my watch not just yours. The fix is always uninstall and reinstall.

My next step in trouble shooting is completely resetting my watch and downloading everything again.

*Original review*

I am getting neither a notification nor haptic feedback after the end of work or break times on my Apple Watch series 1 with IP7+.

I used to get both haptic feedback and notification every time. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling yet this didn't work.

- the way the subscription is present is a turn off. Find a way that is less frustrating to new users. I spent 5 minutes trying to figure out the features only to realize they can’t be interacted with at all. I thought the app was broken.

- add a numerical timer. I like the aesthetic, but I also like to know the exact time left.

- sync the Apple Watch and iPhone app. I set a timer on one, the timer should be going on the other. That’s the deal breaker for me, personally.

Giving five stars because previous reviews are unfair and this app is one of the better pomodoro apps I’ve tried, just dragged down by its subscription presentation and the lack of a numerical display. It’s been more than a year so an update is unlikely, but I hope you consider the above if you do update it.

One the better pomodoro apps when it works

So far, I really like this app. The look and functionality is great. But I find that I’m not getting notifications at the end of sessions. Often, I’ll go to check how much time is left in a session only to find that it ended a while ago and I wasn’t notified. :(
