How to create a widget timer that shows remaning time?

I’m not so exp using automations on the iphone since I so all my work on my mac but now I finally found a use case. I have this coffee subscription at a coffee chain that allows me to get one coffee every 2 hours. It works by giving me a new coupon 2 hours after using a coupon.

However, it does not say how long is left until the next coffee is available. I would love a widget that allows me to just press a button which starts a 2 hour timer. I got that to work with shortcuts but I it requires me to open timers to see how long is left. Best would be some kind of widget (scriptable?) that shows me time remaning on the timer on my homescreen without having to press any button.

Any ideas?

I don’t know if widgets can update that often.
