Rocket Matter Track: Pomodoro Timer

The Pomodoro timer is indeed unique and operates differently from the Rocket Matter timer. Unlike the Rocket Matter timer, which may track time continuously, the Pomodoro timer is designed to work in intervals, and counts down.

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method where you work in focused, uninterrupted intervals (usually 25 minutes), followed by a short break (typically 5 minutes). After completing a set number of these intervals, you take a longer break. The Pomodoro timer is used to track and signal the start and end of these time intervals.

Here's how it typically works:

  1. Work Interval: The Pomodoro timer is set for a fixed work interval (e.g., 25 minutes). During this time, you concentrate solely on your task.
  2. Break: When the work interval ends, the timer notifies you, and you take a short break (e.g., 5 minutes) to relax and recharge.
  3. Repeat: You repeat this cycle, known as a "Pomodoro," multiple times. After completing a set number of Pomodoros, you take a longer break (e.g., 15-30 minutes).

In the Pomodoro Technique, the goal is to complete the entire Pomodoro timer without any interruptions or stopping the timer prematurely.

Note: When you stop the timer before completing the entire 'Focus Timer,' it will reset back to its original starting time. However, the time you've already tracked will be accurately recorded in Rocket Matter.

For example, let's say you've initiated Pomodoro Timer #1 and then decide to pause it after 5 minutes, with 20 minutes left on the timer. In this case, the 5 minutes you've already worked will be accurately recorded in Rocket Matter. However, the Pomodoro timer itself will reset back to Pomodoro Timer #1 with its original 25-minute duration.

The timer settings can be adjusted in your Rocket Matter Track application settings to better suit your preferences and workflow.


FOCUS TIME:  When you start the timer, it will initiate with a 'Focus Time' duration of 25 minutes.

SHORT BREAK: The short break will commence immediately after the 'Focus Time' timer has been completed. For instance, if your 'Focus Time' is set to 25 minutes, the short break will start right after this 25-minute period has elapsed.

LONG BREAK: This sequence will initiate after you have completed 4 'Focus Time' timers and 3 'Short Breaks' as part of the Pomodoro cycle.

Note: You have the flexibility to customize the timer settings in your Rocket Matter Track application.

  • Start Pomodoro timer #1 - 25 Minute Focus
  • 1st Short Break - 5 Minutes
  • Start Pomodoro timer #2 - 25 Minute Focus
  • 2nd Short Break - 5 Minutes
  • Start Pomodoro timer #3- 25 Minute Focus
  • 3rd Short Break - 5 Minutes
  • Start Pomodoro timer #4 - 25 Minute Focus
  • 1st Long Break - 15 Minutes


You can tailor the lengths of your Focus Time, Short Break, and Long Break intervals to your liking by going to the Settings menu and selecting the Pomodoro timer.


You'll have the option to enable or disable sound notifications. It's important to note that you won't be able to customize or modify the sound notification itself.
