BreakTime 2.5

This program lets you know when it's time to take a break from your PC.

This Mac program is, as its name clearly indicates, a utility that reminds you when it's time for a break from work. The application might come in handy to people who work in front of their computers for a long time and need to take regular breaks from their tasks.

By accessing the app's Preferences menu, you can set the preferred interval of time for both breaks and work. After making the proper adjustments, you can click over the app's icon from the Menu Bar and check how much time is left until your break from work.

I like that the application provides you with the Enforce Break option. Once you enable this feature, the program will prevent you from accessing other apps or click the Done button while the break timer is on.

Another advantage of this Mac utility is that if offers you an advanced setting which, once enabled, causes BreakTime to automatically reschedule breaks when no activity is detected.

To summarize, BreakTime proves to be a smart addition to your collection of Mac programs. This utility is very simple to handle and configure, sits quietly on your Menu Bar until the timer goes on, and comes with a very reasonable price.
