Why Timely Thoughts

Let’s face it. The world is challenging. Work, school and family obligations can build stress and be overwhelming at times. Even basic social interactions on the internet can generate anxiety when negative comments take a life all their own.

A few years ago, we lost a close family member that struggled with depression and suffered from domestic abuse. Like many in such situations, we increased support for local organizations and took advantage of any opportunity to increase awareness.

As a software developer, I thought there might be another way to positively contribute to the dialogue. When the Apple Watch came out, I saw it as an opportunity to create something others might find useful. A watch is something people look at frequently throughout the day; and even a short message has the ability to brighten someone’s day, offer hope, prompt them to look ahead and/or make a contribution to the world around them.

Thus, Timely Thoughts was born. But to us, Timely Thoughts is more than just an app that displays encouraging, motivational and thought provoking message right on the watch face. Timely Thoughts represents one more contribution we can make, as a portion of the proceeds will be donated to women’s shelters and domestic abuse related organizations.

The Complications



Throughout the day, Timely Thoughts randomly displays inspirational and encouraging thoughts right on the watch face. Check the time and get motivated. Timely Thoughts can be set up on several watch faces including Modular, Utility and Mickey Mouse.

Be a catalyst for change in the world!

The App



The Timely Thoughts app has even more uplifting, constructive and thought provoking messages. You can get to it in two ways.

1. From the home screen, tap on the Timely Thoughts icon.
2. If you have Timely Thoughts set up as a complication, tapping the thought on the watch face will automatically open the app.

Every time you raise your wrist, the app will display a new random thought. Pretty nice!

Complication Set-Up

After you install Timely Thoughts on your watch, setting up a complication is easy. The steps below walk you though adding Timely Thoughts to the Modular watch face, but the Utility and Mickey Mouse watches faces are very similar.
