How do I access the Ten Percent Happier Apple Watch app?

How to use the Ten Percent Happier Apple Watch app:

Ten Percent Happier has an Apple Watch app too! You can use our Watch app with or without registering a Ten Percent Happier account.  Get the app from the App Store, either on Apple Watch or from your iPhone. Apple's support article Get more apps on Apple Watch has all the details.

The Ten Percent Happier Watch app currently includes:

  • The Daily Dose: A  which updates every day.
  • Quick Hits: 15 meditations that our community uses often and likes to have handy. Our running meditation and two sleep meditations are included.
  • Talks: 15 Mini Boosts of Wisdom - like a short, inspiration podcast.
  • Timer: The unguided timer on your watch gives you starting tap and an ending tap so you can meditate anywhere, anytime, and get credit for it in your Ten Percent Happier history if you use the app. Be sure to set up your Ten Percent Happier app and the Health app so they can share information. Check out our Help Center article How do I enable Mindful Minutes with the Apple Health App on iPhone?

To run the Ten Percent Happier app on your Apple Watch you need to be updated to iOS 12 or higher on your iPhone and watchOS 6 or higher on your Apple Watch. Please make sure you're updated in both places in order for the Ten Percent Happier Watch app to work.

To verify the OS version you're running on your Watch:

  • Open the Watch app on your iPhone.
  • Tap General.
  • Tap About.
  • Check the version.

The Ten Percent Happier app will show on your watch if you set it up to automatically install available apps. If you don't see the Ten Percent Happier icon in your watch you can manually install it this way:

  1. Open the Watch app on your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down to Available Apps.
  3. Locate Ten Percent and tap Install.
