please read if you have an old smartwatch you don't want anymore :boost_ok: 

hey uh

if anybody has like an old smartwatch they don't want anymore

especially if it's one of the ones on this page

asteroidos.org/install/

(but even if it's not)

i could really use it

i used to have a galaxy watch that really helped me manage my ADHD and such

then my asshole abusive parents stole it

i've tried using a day planner but i just can't bring myself to use it consistently

having what basically amounts to a heads-up display for life on my wrist was just... perfect in every way

it made everything so much easier

so yeah if anyone has a spare smartwatch they could send my way i'd be eternally grateful and it would really help me get my shit together

my only criteria is it has to work with a samsung/android phone since that's what i have lol

please boost! :boost_ok:

@vantablack not to distract or anything but i'm actually curious, what do you do with the smartwatch that helps with ADHD stuff? i'm an ADHD haver and it seems like something i could really use actually

re: please read if you have an old smartwatch you don't want anymore :boost_ok: 

@kat someone asked me this earlier, i'll copy and paste what my response was 😁

the tl;dr is having a daily to-do list and calendar i could easily look at on my wrist kept me on track and stopped me from forgetting to do things, and there are apps that vibrate like every X number of minutes to keep me mindful of the passage of time and stop me from getting distracted, and alarms to remind me to take my meds and such

re: please read if you have an old smartwatch you don't want anymore :boost_ok: 

@vantablack oh god actually having a pill tracker strapped to my wrist would help keep me from going an entire week without HRT sometimes haha

do you have like app names or anything? definitely need to look into it

re: please read if you have an old smartwatch you don't want anymore :boost_ok: 

@kat @vantablack iirc, Medisafe works on both smartwatches and phones, and it's by far the best med tracker out there
Me and like everyone I know use Medisafe

re: please read if you have an old smartwatch you don't want anymore :boost_ok: 

@V @vantablack ooh will it like beep at me when it's time to take pills? if so i'm all over that

Follow

re: please read if you have an old smartwatch you don't want anymore :boost_ok: 

@kat @vantablack Yeah, it beeps, or vibrates, or whatever you set it to do. Then you can either set it to snooze for an amount of time so you can take them later, or take your meds and press the button to say you took them. If you ignore the beep entirely, it'll happen again every once in a while until you take them.
It also has an easy to read visual listing of all your pills, if you so choose, so that you don't miss any, and it'll even warn you if you're taking two pills that have a bad reaction to each other.

re: please read if you have an old smartwatch you don't want anymore :boost_ok:
