In this group project, we designed the AION brand and a wearable interface for it that includes a Pomodoro timer for maximum productivity.

Research

We conducted a survey within our target audience on what apps they used most on their wearable device and why they used it on a wearable vs. mobile. Our findings concluded that for the most part, it was the time, the weather, and quick notifications.

Based on our initial research, our group wanted to focus on a display that included the time, the weather, and our Pomodoro app.

What I learned

What I learned

Our initial research concluded that users own wearables in order to use their phone less. A wearable's best feature is the notification aspect.

Because users want to stay informed without engaging with their device in depth, our Pomodoro app allows for no engagement at all.

The timer starts, ends, and restarts with intermittent vibrating notifications until the user exits the app with a tap.

 After user testing a paper prototype, we deduced that a vertical scroll for the weather interface was easier to use than a horizontal slide.  Users are accustomed to scrolling through feeds in many apps and our tests showed that it was a necessary adjustment to implement.
