Saent is a physical button that works with an accompanying app to steer you clear of distracting websites in 30, 50 or 90-minute sessions

For those who struggle with distraction while trying to work at home or in the office, Saent offers a solution. The device resembles an oversized “panic button” with a light-up clock that tracks the amount of productive work the user engages in. It uses a wireless connection to computers and mobile devices to monitor activity, and a library of common programs to determine how much time is spent on productive activities…and how much is not.

When connected, users choose their favorite sites and applications that eat up their attention and Saent eliminates access to those activities for a preset amount of time. This not only prevents large blocks of time-wasting, but prevents multitasking or checking social media or mail “just for a minute.”
