If you are trying hard to lose weight or struggling to save money, the wait is over as a nifty gadget is here to solve your problems.
Amazon is now selling this Pavlok bracelet that can help you to solve many small issues of your life like spending too much time on the internet, biting your nails or oversleeping.
Whenever you will break a rule, the strap will give you a 350-volt electric shock to give you a reminder.
According to the manufacturer: “Pavlok allows you to speak your reptile brain’s language by adding an unpleasant element (a safe and harmless ‘zap’ of electricity on your wrist) to what you have been taught to love (your nasty lingering habit), quickly conditioning your mind to associate an ‘unpleasant’ feeling with your bad habit… and stopping it all together.
Its price is $199 (£158) and the Pavlok has 150 shocks per charge.
Speaking to ABC News, the inventor of the device said: “It feels like if you were to touch a doorknob after rubbing your socks on the carpet.”
He added: “There’s a real power in using a little bit of pain to help you break your bad habits.”
The reviews of this device have been mixed as some people are happy with the result and it helped them to change their bad habits, while others are unhappy with its quality.
One customer wrote: “Wrist band is a little awkward but it does allow for the contacts to be positioned closely to your skin for the best results. I’ve only used the button on the device to administer the shock.
“I can’t comment on how the hand motion function works. The app is ok and does give some information and videos on how to beat whatever habit you’re trying to break. At 100 per cent on a decent charge, it is more than enough of a zap to get your attention.
“I’m glad I bought it, so far I believe it is working. It’s not going to cure a lifelong issue in a few days so you have to stick to their plan and really work on it.”
