Right now, when I asked my phone to set a reminder for X at X time, it adds it to the Reminders section of Google Now. If the reminder is far away, I won't even see it on my phone unless I click the Reminders button at the bottom of Google Now.

Is there any way to make these reminders more obvious or more persistent?

For ex, if I add an event to my calendar, I can view my calendar events for the next X weeks with my Chronus clock widget right on my homescreen. Is there anyway to have my reminders show up on this widget too?

There's probably a better solution than this, but Google Keep widget displays reminders. You would set the reminder in keep rather than Gnow, but Gnow will still detect the reminder

Similar issue
Hi, I have a similar issue: the reminders are not persistent and intrusive enough. My phone may often bee a room away. When it rings, I'll hear, for sure, and most major Calendar/sms/email reminders too, but, the Google Now reminders are sort of "humble", "quiet", very much gentle and in the background. Also, they are not persistent. They will go off, and, if I'm not near the phone, they'll simply go away after a while. This makes it very unreliable, while I believe Google Now could be an amazing tool! Any way to make the reminders keep nagging with noise until you actually click "quiet" or "postpone"?
