Owaves is the WORLD'S first day planner for health. Backed by the science of Circadian Rhythm. The idea is to plan your day around the five “lifestyle vital signs” necessary for a long, healthy, and happy life. These are exercise, sleep, nutrition, stress management, and love/social interaction. These vital signs have been outlined by The American College of Lifestyle Medicine and are backed by many experts. I was fortunate to be recruited to work on this awesome project from late 2015 to 2022. I love what this app is trying to accomplish. It really has the potential to redefine how we spend our time. In the end, that's the most important thing in life, and we should never forget that.
UX design always has its challenges. With that said, I think we come a long way in the time I was involved with the project. One thing I remember we really struggled with was a solid onboarding experience. This is something that's really a must-have in any app. We went through many iterations of the initial app experience which is why I feel it was the most challenging part about the design process.
