Set notifications to take breaks or alarm clock

Yes! Plus a clock
This timer can use the same Oculus Move overlay (or different one on the side) for users to see check time/upcoming alarm. When an alarm goes, it uses the existing notification protocol to alert user.
Having to press a button to pause a game to check time is very cumbersome, and I for one don't play with phone on me.
Would love to have this for a 13 year old who has just bought a Quest 2 and needs reminding that there's a real world out here.
Either a timer/alarm or being able to see the time "in game" in your peripherals.
SO many reasons why this would be important for people to have as an option.
God forbid I wake up way before my alarm and decide to play a little Robo Recall before heading out. Although I am apparently a "Re-caller among re-callers"... it is not my actual job.

This is one I really need... of course you can use a external timer, but with headphones you can’t hear it, I use the headset early in the morning and I also don’t want to wake the entire house.
I have thought of several use cases for a in game timer alarm, I think if we post this in the Reddit community and make people aware of it, other people would take interest.
If you need to leave for work or school at a certain time, and you don’t want to be late.
If you want to play beat saber of another intense game for a certain a of time for exercise .
If you want to limit the amount of time you spend in a game or in vr, so you or someone else doesn’t overdo it, or for sharing.
I find myself tilting my head up, lifting the headsets and trying to peak out the nose all the time to check the clock... that really spoils immersion, plus instead of enjoying the experience, often I am thinking about the time.
