The application does its job but not well. It can't be pause, you only can restart the count. You can't add time to periods either. So it's not very useful.

Applicatiob doesnt show any push messages from the phone.It is really bad(Can you please fix this?Reproduses on vivo active 3

Works great, functionally - however it drains battery on Forerunner 645 like crazy.
Would be 5 stars if it was more battery efficient.
13. november 2019 | Version 1.7.0
The app is great, thank you, developer! One request though, could you implement pauses? Like I received an important phone call and want to pause the timer just for a minute...

Works very nicely. Logging function that shows the Pomodoros as workouts in Garmin Connect would be interesting. So one could easily track the time spent writing or working. :-)
22. oktober 2019 | Version 1.7.0
Great App to use Pomodore-technique.
10. oktober 2019 | Version 1.7.0
This app is the only one I installed from iq. Really good. Thanks!
2. september 2019 | Version 1.6.0
With the vivoactive 3, this app will shut off if swiped off the screen or if my arm moved while studying. I had to restart the Pomodoro session five times and it never worked.
5. august 2019 | Version 1.6.0
Would love the ability to pick between a 12 and a 24 hour clock. I've tried the 24 hour clock and I just can't do it :P.
26. juli 2019 | Version 1.6.0
I like the concept. Granted its simple and like others have mentioned, it'd be nice to be able to switch back to the main watch face but it's not a deal breaker. I haven't tried the app with the sound alerts on but as I have them muted now, I get no feedback when pomodoro has completed or when my break is up. I have to look at it see when my time has lapsed. I have the vibration set to 7 and duration at 100 and I feel nothing on my FR 645 Music.
7. juli 2019 | Version 1.6.0
I have started using this app for work on my Vivoactive 3. However - there seems to be a bug. When you adjust any of the settings - I just get an IQ! Error on the device when starting a pomedero.
29. juni 2019 | Version 1.5.0
As a user, I tap start after the app says it's ready and does not work. It shows a screen with "IQ!" instead. What else can I try to make it work?? Forerunner735XT
30. marts 2019 | Version 1.5.0
It's almost perfect, it only lacks feature to let you run pomodoro in background. On my vívoactive 3, I can run activities like Walk or Treadmill in the background, but whenever I swipe pomodoro to the right, my progress and timer is lost. So for me Exit button in menu feels redundant. The walkaround for me is to set watch to auto-lock so I don't accidentally swipe it to the right (finding out that the app is off during the cycle is really disappointing and frustrating). Anyways keep up the good work! :)
29. marts 2019 | Version 1.5.0
Really like the idea. This could be my default pomodoro timer! However, I also notice quite a lot of battery drain (and I have strength of vibration on every tick set to 0). This is on a Fenix 5S Plus. So as is, unfortunately not really useful for me on a daily basis. Will give 5 stars once this is fixed.
27. marts 2019 | Version 1.5.0
The only reasons I didn't give it 5 stars are because I keep forgetting to press start at the start of each new Pomodoro and would like it to autostart (or at least have that as an option) and because I would like to be able to pause. I saw from the developer's replies below that he deliberately hasn't put in a pause feature because he sees it as part of the technique that you shouldn't let yourself get interrupted and if you do you should start the Pomodoro again. From my perspective I would only use the pause feature to extend the Pomodoro though - for example if I had four minutes of work left to do on a specific task and was in the flow I wouldn't want to stop, but also wouldn't want to have my next break cut to one minute, so I would prefer to hit pause while I finished the task and then get the whole break.
I can see both of these are things to do with my own usage style, but for me they would improve it. Overall though it is a great app!

Review for Garmin 920XT
Oh my word! This a rockstar app, hands-down better than any pomodoro app on this platform, with no performance issues what-so-ever!
Hi Mr. Developer! You rock! The quality of your work reflects in your app's stellar performance. It's so good, I'd pay for it! 5 stars and would love to check out your other apps.
28. februar 2019 | Version 1.5.0
Works great on vivoactive 3 music. It does what it's supposed to do.
Only tiny thing missing from pomodoro technique is the counter of a larger break on the fourth break (15 minutes).
28. februar 2019, klimeryk
Thanks for the review, Juan! Though, not sure what you mean by the missing "counter of a larger break on the fourth break"? There _is_ a larger/longer break after three short breaks - and you can configure the duration of both to your liking :) See the main page for details - the defaults are the standard 5 and 25 minutes respectfully. Hope this helps!
21. februar 2019 | Version 1.4.0
Love the concept, I like the idea of using the Pomodoro technique without using something like a phone, but it unfortunately has two problems that made me deinstall the app.
Firstly, the battery consumption is pretty high on a one month old Forerunner 645.
Secondly, there is no way to exit the app and without resetting the timer completely, which makes it impossible to even check the time on a smaller of longer break.

Hi, Joris - thanks for checking out the app! I've tried my best to keep the app as light on resources as possible - however, at the end of the day, it uses the vibration motor every second. Unless you're not using that feature - in which case, please file a bug report and I'll try to look into it.
As for the second issue - that's highly dependent on the watch model you have (some allow putting apps in background, like my Fenix 3 HR). However, as a workaround, I've added always displaying the current time in the newest (v1.5.0) version of the app - hope you'll enjoy it more now!
8. november 2018 | Version 1.3.0-upd8
Hi. The app is awesome.But there is one main problem wich can be fixed:App will exit if swap right.Looks like it doesn't work fully asynchronous. Is it possible to fix quick?Thanks!
28. oktober 2018 | Version 1.3.0-upd8
Nice and clear, would be really great the ability to remove the noise and have only vibration for alerts. Keep the good job.
23. november 2018, klimeryk
Thanks for the review, Kose - please check out the newest version of the app (1.4.0). I've added a setting just for that! (you can toggle it using Garmin Express). Enjoy!
27. oktober 2018 | Version 1.3.0-upd8
Before I installed Pomodoro app my Forerunner 235 had a normal consuption of the battery. Now I've notice a INCREDIBLE draining of the battery. It's Pomodoro app. I'm quite sure because I didn't installed other app....
23. november 2018, klimeryk
Sorry to hear that, but I'm fairly sure it's not this app - I've put extra effort to make it as simple and easy on the battery as possible. Of course, it's using vibrations and all, so it's not without impact on the battery, but "incredible draining" should definitely not happen. I'm using it daily and have not noticed anything like that - I wonder if the battery on your watch simply has not started to show signs of use (as all batteries do sooner or later).
15. oktober 2018 | Version 1.3.0-upd8
The app works great regarding its purpose, however, it cripples the primary, main and ultimate function of every watch, namely displaying the time. As the app is not working in the background, swiping right to dismiss the display and show the watch face not only disbands the current Pomodoro, it also ruins the complete progress achieved so far, since restarting the app starts from Pomodoro #1. I'm pretty sure there's room for the time using a small font to make it unobtrusive.
13. september 2018 | Version 1.3.0-upd8
I love this app.
4. august 2018 | Version 1.3.0-upd8
It used to be my fave app. I use it daily n heavily. Now it drains battery like crazy. Please fix.
11. august 2018, klimeryk
There have been no changes to the app for a while - so I'd wager it might be something else on your watch. The simplest explanation would be if you're using a custom watch face - some of them drain battery very quickly. There might have been a regression in the watch's firmware as well (though, less likely). I can assure you that preserving battery life was one of my top priorities when developing this app - and as a result, it needs very little resources. I use it daily as well and have not noticed any changes with respect to my watch's batter life.
Please try resetting the watch face to the default one and see if that helps. If not, feel free to contact me using the link on app's page so we can troubleshoot this further!
