Pavlok (a Behavioral Technologies Group product) is a wearable device that helps you break any bad habit. Pavlok combines proven behavioral training techniques, innovative “zaptic” hardware, and tracking software to help you kick habits like smoking, nail biting, eating sugar, being unproductive, hitting the snooze button, and more.

Pavlok has two Official apps available for iOS and Android as of January, 2016. Coming in February, we’ll release Chrome Extension and (coming February/March 2016) IFTTT integration: Pavlok Breaking Bad Habits (iOS/Android)- listen to guided habit breaking audio courses, use the remote control function to trigger your Pavlok manually, or test and adjust the strength of the different types of haptic feedback. Pavlok Shocking Alarm Clock (iOS/Android) – Wake up on time, use Pavlok as your alarm clock!

Pavlok will vibrate to wake you up, and slowly increase the stimulus to zap you until you get up – for real. Customize the type of feedback that wakes you up, and never wake up late or miss a meeting ever again. Pavlok Productivity (Chrome Extension) – Blacklist websites that you know you shouldn’t visit, and banish too many open tabs. If you open one too many tabs or visit a site you shouldn’t be on, Pavlok will notify you and vibrate, beep, or zap your wrist. (Coming February/March 2016) IFTTT (If This, Then That) – IFTTT is a web app that allows you to connect hundreds of different applications together. You can connect apps, smart devices, social networks, other wearables, and more. Here are some example recipes that you’ll be able to use with Pavlok:
