Sometime we lose track of the time we spend in PS/Sketch or replying emails, do you think a reminder at random intervals would be a good solution or would it be too annoying?

Losing track of time is a good sign: it means you're absorbed and completely focused on what you're doing. Reminders of the current time would only break this flow.
The shot looks good though, love the angled bit.
Sound like a good idea but it may get your morale down when you really want to do that but you can't spare the time :)
I love the execution, but i'd hate this.
When i'm in the zone I need not be disturbed.
I would like a nagging popup to save me from email insanity. Although being in the zone is good… I find I'm twice as productive if I'm more active and haven't been burned out on working too long. Love it!
@Max Steenbergen depends on your point of view. Life is lived outside of a device after all!
Looks very nice, would love to see the wheels spinning!
The idea seems great, but I always get mad when something pop in my screen without my concern.
Love the design anyway!
the system is flexible and customizable as @Fabio Basile tell me.
In this point of view, is possible activate the reminder only during boring or repetitive works...in this case you don't broke the flow of creativity...
Nice to see othericons in the action :) @Fabio Basile
I'd never use something like this I'm afraid to say. Odds are, if I'm locked in to something I'd be ignoring my phone anyways...
Wow beautiful colors
I'd say I wouldn't use something like this either, personally. I could see people getting use out of it, but if I am really making progress on something I would not want to have any distractions.
What's wrong with Pomodoro? ;)
there is also - http://www.getconcentrating.com/ @Mariusz Ciesla i've never used it, but might be similar?
Really dig the idea, have you thought into it on a broader scale? Meaning, I would LOVE if my reminders looked and felt this good and clean. That way, knowing how I work and when I need a break, I could set the reminders myself. Because I agree with everyone else with being "in the zone," so I wouldn't want an interruption per se. However, I am a man of schedule and need my reminders. Though it's been done before, I would be more inclined to use this over others with such an aesthetic appeal, excluding the penny farthing of course. Keep it flat. :)

who reads emails? Let's ride!
I personally think that is disruptive. All machine made suggestions should not deviate from my track of thought. The element of surprise should only be used to enhance the current experience and not suggest something completely different.
Example of a good UX surprise is the gmail that asks you to attach the file because you had the word "attachement" in the email. etc.
love this idea!! Definitely something i'd be into but as an add-on to chrome or something. If i'm working, it's best to leave me be but if I am taking a ten-minute break for over an hour, this would be a nice reminder to get back to it!
