The insurmountable challenge that is trying to reduce the time you spend on your phone while actively needing your phone to keep your life on track.
A watch that is not connected to the internet and has a notification functionality. Its screen is color-coded and only shows the tasks of the most priority at any given moment. Connection. The watch is connected to a laptop where it synchronizes with your day planner to acquire more tasks whenever the need arises. The tasks are categorized as follows in order of priority
  • Work (Red)
These are work-related tasks like deadlines for projects or monthly quotas
  • Personal projects (Blue)
These are personal projects you are working on regardless of whether they have a time limit or not, For example working to restore a car or going to the gym.
  • General life reminders (green)
Are things you know you have to do but are easy to forget sometimes. staying hydrated is a good example or picking the kids from school.
The watch carries a lightweight time management software that weighs in each task, hours at your disposal in a day, the timeframe to complete each task, and the order of priority of each task as they appear in your day-planner. Based on all that at any time of day it will display the three tasks you have to complete. You can only interact with the task of highest priority in only two ways. The first is delaying its priority to a step lower or two and pushing the next task in order of priority. The second is to mark it as complete, clearing it off the list and raising the next task. Reminders automatically ascend to peak priority once their time is nigh. In the event a task doesn't have a time limit, a rate of hours per week is enforced at a daily rate.
Color coding
The watch shows three colors , red blue and green in that order of priority. Therefore, a purely red task is a priority work task , A red task marked blue is a priority task but of personal significance and the rest appear in that fashion.

Once a task reaches peak priority the watch notifies you via a tone or vibration
  1. The perfect tool for life management for anyone living with ADHD
  2. Reduced anxiety, with only three things to take care of at any moment you can reduce the overload that comes from trying to do too much at once
  3. It has fewer components making it cheaper to make and cheaper to buy for consumers
  4. Limit relience on your mobile phone.
  5. Has no internet connectivity which means students can use it at school
  6. The simple user interface makes it very easy to use.

The watch knows your daily schedule and when you have free time. It also knows destinations required to perform certain tasks. Say if you had to go shopping at 4 pm and but at 11 am you were in the area, The watch could treat each task as a tab and start the task that is the easiest to accomplish based on your location. It could prompt a start for task shopping letting you clear even more tasks from your planner. Grouping together tasks that are easy to accomplish in one swoop also serves to relieve stress.
  1. Retains all the benefits above
  2. Improves the amount of free time you'll have at the end of the day.
  3. Allows you to save money on fuel by reducing the overall number of trips you take daily

I see, in essence, it is a smart watch that functions as an old school watch without distractions from the internet distractions am I right? There are actually quite a few digital planners on the market now, but since you mentioned GPS, I'm guessing it is a improved version that focuses on efficiency and convienience of the task at hand.
I actually like the example you gave about the shopping task. I am not sure if it is technologically possible now but to have an AI watch that lets you know the most convienient way to go about your day is pretty cool. I cannot count the number of times I have forgotten to buy a particular grocery simply because I was not sure if it was available at the supermarket. To have the watch inform me on the nearest available location without requiring me to check online would be great.
One thing I would personally add would be a timer of sorts. Eg, if you are spending too much time on one particular task, the app should prompt you to either take a break or focus on another task to prevent tunnel visioning.

This is a thoroughly developed idea, Contrived _voice! You mentioned that "Based on all that at any time of day it (the watch) will display the three tasks you have to complete." How will a non-digital watch display the tasks? Did I miss something?

Contrived _voice Would I get the same product if I just turned off the internet connection and the connection of my watch with my phone? Basically, remove everything and leave a cool reminder app?

J. Nikola Psychological habit formation. The moment you touch your phone you kind of fall back on the patterns most familiar to you. The whole idea is to create a new pattern that eliminates the phone from the equation. But yeah, you're right.

Contrived _voice I get it. It could work if marketed that way.
