Owaves, a cosmopolitan lifestyle medicine company based in San Diego, is launching the world's first dedicated wellness planner today on iTunes. The Owaves iPad App provides a remarkably simple, visual, fun and effective tool for positive lifestyle change and management.
The App released today is Owaves' first footstep in developing Wellness 4D™, a comprehensive lifestyle change and management system incorporating wearable devices that enables fun and easy planning, tracking and real-time assessment of daily activity patterns. "We're redefining time. Owaves is creating a new personalized way of looking at time that places health and wellness as a top priority," said Royan Kamyar, M.D., MBA, founder and CEO of Owaves.
"This is the world's first wellness planner - believe it or not, there's no other system today designed to help you organize your day around health and wellness-related goals," said Dr. Kamyar. "With almost $2 trillion annually being spent on preventable chronic disease and two-thirds of the US obese or overweight, the need is urgent."
The Owaves App makes it easy to plan health and wellness goals into your day. Colorful, vibrant, and fun to use, the interface was developed in collaboration with a top game and puzzle app development firm from France. A novel 24-hour clock automatically oriented to local sunrise and sunset nudges users to a healthy circadian rhythm. Emphasis of exercise, sleep, nutrition, love and relaxation (or stress management) in the activity menu allows users to consider these priorities alongside traditional work and errand activities when scheduling their day.
One participant from the closed beta trial, a busy lab researcher at a prestigious university in northern California, said she now schedules time each day to Skype with her long-distance boyfriend just to say hi and see how each other is doing, "something I never would have thought to do otherwise." She traditionally used Google Calendar, but now sees Owaves as an essential part of her life.
