Moments is a companion service aimed at improving the mental well-being of those travelling solo through mindfulness interventions and self-reflection techniques.
It acts as an assistant for leisure travellers embarking on a solo trip. Millions of people travel solo every year, however, little consideration is given to how travelling solo can take its toll on both the travellers and their loved ones. Moments aims to intervene when users may be experiencing feelings of loneliness through meditation and self-reflection.
Moments targets the points where users may be experiencing these feelings through the use of a companion wristband. This tracks the user's heart rate and calculates their heart rate variability (HRV), a measure of the time intervals between heartbeats, directly linked to stress levels. When it detects that their heart rate variability is lowering, the service intervenes through the mobile app.
