Choose the habit you want to change. Wear your Pavlok throughout the day.
Pavlok can automatically and manually deliver a stimulus when you engage in your bad habit.
Your brain associates the stimulus with the bad habit, creating an aversion.
Pick your action. Exercise every day, be more productive online, learn a new language, wake up earlier — the possibilities are endless!
In the Pavlok app, choose what you want to accomplish. Pavlok will break your goal down into easy, manageable actions. Each day, Pavlok will push you to stay on track and form the lasting habit.
Willpower isn't enough. Habit change requires accountability. You won't have to make the journey alone - Pavlok helps you find a partner or join a team of your friends.
Social support and pressure will keep you on track. When you hit a bump in the road, they'll motivate you to keep going. Or, they'll punish you.
Choose your level of commitment. Pavlok can reward you when you achieve your goals. Earn prizes and even money when you complete your daily task.
But be warned: if you fail, you’ll face penalties. Pay a fine, lose access to your phone, or even suffer an electric shock…at the hands of your friends.
Research shows that consistency is the key to forming a habit. When you use Pavlok to stick to your goals, you'll find that they become easier and eventually, automatic.
At that point, use Pavlok to train your next habit and keep up your transformation into a better you.
What would you do with just one extra hour of time each day? Would you start a business, explore your creativity, or just have some “me” time? The opportunities are endless. But it’s so easy to hit “snooze” and roll over.
Pavlok: Wake Up lets you set an alarm to gently vibrate and wake you up. But, what if you keep hitting the snooze button? Pavlok can deliver just enough of a “jolt” to get you up and running --- with adrenaline.
Do you have any friends who run or lift every day but complain when they miss a day? They simply have developed the habit of exercise. For them, it actually requires willpower to NOT work out.
With two months of daily activity, you’d feel exactly the same. This might sound crazy, but it’s been scientifically validated.
Pavlok Fit uses a powerful commitment ecosystem to help your form this habit. Choose between hitting the gym (measured by GPS), walking 10,000 steps, or running with Runkeeper. Earn rewards when you succeed to keep you motivated.
Choose your commitment level, and when you succeed, you’ll earn money. But, if you fail, you’ll have a penalty to your Facebook friends. Either you’ll give them your money --- or they’ll get to shock you.
Pavlok Productive retrains your deeply ingrained “chronic web surfing” habits. In our trial research, we found that a large number of participants have significant trouble getting work done in the face of temptation (e.g. incoming emails, interesting articles, status updates).
The Pavlok app and wristband track your surfing habits. Using a combination of vibration, sound, and electric shock, the wristband stops distractions in their tracks and keeps you focused on your work.
How much would you get done if you stopped wasting time on social media and constantly checking your email? Pavlok can break the bad habit of opening too many tabs and mindlessly wasting your day.
Here are examples of some potential integration's.
Habit: Wake Up An Hour Earlier
Now I get up at 7 without pressing the snooze button, do 10 mins of mindfulness meditation, read a few pages of a philosophical or poetry book, and write. These are all habits now!
Habit: Write 1000 words each day
I’ve been able to write 1,000 words per day consistently. No matter how hard I've tried in the past, it was impossible. But the program really works. The best part is, now the habit doesn't feel like a chore...it's just part of my life.

Is the shock safe?
Absolutely! The circuit is complete on your skin, and the voltage / amperage is not enough to hurt you. It is a very noticeable shock --- like a static shock like when you walk with your socks on a rug and then touch a metal door knob.
Will Pavlok work on my Android and iOS?
Yes! We are developing both Android and iOS versions.
My mom thinks you guys are crazy.
Well that's not really a question but we understand, our moms think we're a little nuts as well but they love us anyway :)

Pavlok can deliver up to 200 shocks on a single charge. That means that for the typical user Pavlok will last 4 days on a full charge.
What stops you from taking it off?
Pavlok knows when it's on you --- the human detect is an important component. If you're late to the gym, you get vibrated and shocked. But if you've made a real commitment, and you're not wearing the wristband --- you get charged money. Real commitment comes from real accountability.
Are there different size wristbands?
The wristband is adjustable, so it will fit you for sure :).
How do you control how much it shocks you?
You can adjust the intensity of the shock inside the app.
How do you charge it?

Is the shock momentary or continuous?
How heavy is it?
It's very light --- a few ounces.
Is it difficult to set up?
Super easy! No previous rocket or scientist degree's required.
What kind of data does the app store about me?
At the moment, the app is not storing any data, but is using your current actions to deliver feedback.
How tight should the device fit?
Very snug to the skin to maintain constant contact to your skin.
Is it waterproof?
You can't swim in it, but we are working on making it highly water resistant.
What habits can I break with Pavlok?
Pavlok is designed to help to break ANY habit. This ranges from visiting distracting websites, going to fast food restaurants, not standing up from your desk often enough, going to bed late, biting your nails, and TONS of others.
Do I have to wear Pavlok everyday in order to reap the benefits?
No! Research has shown that it can take as little as 30 days to break a habit. While some stubbornly ingrained habits can take up to 66 days, habits like flossing or going to bed on time can be achieved in less than 2 weeks! After you've formed a habit with Pavlok you no longer need to wear it everyday, unless you have a different habit that you are trying to make or break. And if you ever start to fall off track with one of your habits all you have to do is put Pavlok back on for a few days to correct yourself!

How does Pavlok know if I've completed the task?
