Let’s be honest… Breaking bad habits is hard. Whether you’re trying to stop biting your nails, or quit smoking, it takes grit to lay those habits to rest. You know what else is hard? Getting the right amount of sleep. How you wake up—well-rested, or groggy—can have a huge impact on your day. Fortunately, the Pavlok can train you to wake up like a champ.
The Pavlok is a slim band with a digital face that fits comfortably around the wrist. But this modest-looking device means business. The Pavlok is the drill sergeant of alarm clocks, designed to wake even hardcore snoozers by zapping wearers with a small shock or vibration.
The Pavlok is the drill sergeant of alarm clocks, designed to wake even hardcore snoozers by zapping wearers with a small shock or vibration.
The Pavlok is designed to condition users to develop healthier sleeping habits by tracking sleep patterns and using beeps, vibration, and/or zaps to help them wake up at a designated time. The vibration and beep features work more like traditional alarm clocks while the shock mode is slightly more… intense. As its name implies, the shock mode sends tiny electric jolts (with adjustable intensities) into users’ arms until they wake up. After only a short time your brain learns when to wake up, and in turn, you are more alert and ready to attack the day. The device is designed to ensure that you wake up from your lightest phase of sleep, preventing the sluggish feeling associated with waking up from a deep sleep.
Customized packages to help you reach your goals
The Pavlok comes in three packages: the Pavlok + Shock Clock, Pavlok Plus, and Pavlok Pro. Each model includes an activity tracker and beep, vibrate, or zap stimulus.
The Pavlok + Shock Clock is the first model in the series and includes sleep tracking software as well as the shock clock/wake up feature—great for users who are only trying to improve their sleeping habits. The Pavlok Shock + Clock retails for $145 on their site ($129 on Amazon as of this post).
Next in line is the Pavlok Plus. The Plus has everything the Shock Clock offers PLUS the ability to break a troubling habit (or build a new one). All you have to do is put the watch on, zap yourself whenever you are performing the negative habit, and within three to five days and some good old-fashioned willpower, you’ll see your urges diminish or disappear altogether.
Every time you feel the desire to indulge the habit you’re trying to break, simply push the button on your wristband to give yourself a zap. This conditions you through mild electric stimulus to quit your bad habit and take control of your life. Shocks can be self-administered or setup through the Pavlok app to occur on a timer. The Pavlok Plus is available starting at $199 from their homepage.
The Pavlok Pro offers the most comprehensive package in Pavlok series. It’s essentially the Pavlok Plus, with the added bonus that it can tackle seven habits instead of just one. It costs $245.
The Pavlok series of wristbands can really change the way you go about life. From gaining an hour of sleep to ending your smoking addiction, Pavlok is committed to improving your life.
