OfficeTime is an app built around, well, timing. You can use it to set up rates and time sheets for various projects, create categories for different types of rates/time sheets/projects, view reports on completed projects, and even tracking expenses via time. It’s basically like having your own personal clock to punch.
When it comes to using OfficeTime on the Apple Watch, it’s simply a matter of hitting Start or Stop. Any projects you’ve created in the app on the iPhone will show up on the watch, then when it’s time to start you simply start the counter and shut it off when you’re done - the app converts time/rates into dollars automatically. Completed sheets can also be exported for Excel and Plain Text, and you can sync everything with your PC or Mac.
The main problem I have with all of this is that you can’t create new projects from the Apple Watch directly. Instead you have to set everything up using the iPhone, then just use the watch as a glorified timer. You can’t view reports, sync data, or export anything either. I feel like it should be able to do more.
OfficeTime is still a pretty handy time sheet tool to have around, it’s just not an essential addition to the Apple Watch. I mean there’s little reason not to use it if you have that option, but you won’t be missing out on much if you just stick to using it on an iPhone.
