SysMetrix is a desktop clock and system monitoring application. It looks nice, it can be fully customized and it has great value for the users that need to constantly monitor in what way the resources of their computers are being used. The great thing about it is that you can create your own design and view all the statistics you need, all in one place, clearly organized.
You can monitor almost any system resource and you can even set the program to show you weather statistics, such as temperature or humidity.
SysMetrix offers a lot of shortcuts to different types of commands. These shortcuts are accessed either by double clicking on various parts of the graphical user interface or by right clicking on the icon from the system tray or the widget. This can be very useful, but it takes some time to get used to it and to learn where everything is.
Most included themes look fancy, others are optimized for functionality.
A big minus I would note is that the “always on top” option is hard to find and it’s not set as default. Such a tool needs to be visible all the time because it’s frustrating to minimize your opened windows every time you need to see it.
Overall, it's a handy widget for your desktop if you need to monitor what’s going on with your PC. It takes some time to learn where everything is and how to use all its capabilities, but it’s a normal thing, because I think this widget is actually made for experienced users.
