Headspace is on a mission to improve the health and happiness of the world. Their goal is to make meditation accessible for everyone but they lack engagement with audiences that unwind through active experiences.

Traditionally, meditation instructors provide auditory feedback to help their students vocalize the right tone for each chakra. With haptic feedback on the Apple Watch, Headspace users feel what tone they should vocalize instead of hearing it.
Once the user hums in the range of the chakra tone, the watch begins pulsing at one second intervals to let the user know they are on the right track. After the user holds the tone for 10 seconds, the watch sends two pulses to let them know they have completed the exercise.
Users can choose a full chakra meditation where they vocalize each of the seven chakras or they can select them individually if they know which chakra they need to focus on.
