Koala is a minimal task manager app and wearable, designed to help prevent stress in college students. First the user inputs tasks and due dates and assigns icons with the koala app on their phone, which allows them to “brain dump” and visually see what needs to get done and by when. They can then select up to four tasks each day to sync with their wearable; this helps users prioritize what they need to do, sorting through what is most important so that they can effectively complete tasks. The wearable indicates these synced tasks, and the user can turn off each task as it is completed by tapping the respective icon on the wearable. Having a wearable component helps the user stay focused by reducing the number of times they look at their phone where there are many potential distractions.
