Pavlok - The Fitness Tracker With Punishing Powers!
If you tried any fitness trackers you must have noticed that most (if not all) of them focus on the same principle – they gather information, process it and present it to you on a positive note to motivate you to push further.
But, what if that doesn’t work? What if positive reinforcement is not for you? Don’t get me wrong, I am not says you need a beating because you over-slept this morning, but … maybe a little reminder zap would have helped?!?

ALSO CHECK the Withings Pulse, the FitBit Ultra and the MyBasis fitness trackers we featured earlier.

Enter PavlokPavlok does everything other fitness trackers do, but there’s also a subtle addition – the app aims to change and form habits owners wish they have by reinforcing good behaviors and punishing bad behaviors with small electric zaps (just like the static electricity shocks feel when you touch the door knob) and shame posts on social media telling your friends you had a gym training and you missed it!!!
Here’s how the guys from Pavlok describe it: “Earn Rewards when you Succeed. Face Penalties if you Fail.

Pavlok is in prototype mode, will be available for iPhone and can be pre-ordered with delivery scheduled for early 2015.

Oral-B Smart Series Or Tooth Brushing 2.0
It was just about time the good ol’ classic tooth brush gets an upgrade (and yes electric toothbrush, I am looking at you too!!!)!
The German Oral-B Smart Series is deemed to be the world’s first interactive tooth brush that collects, analyses and advises you how to better clean your teeth.

The tooth brush connects with free Android and iPhone apps via low-energy Bluetooth 4, tracks a number of brushing-related metrics such as how often, how long and how well are your brushing your teeth and allows cleaning program customization based on your dentist’s professional advice. Here’s how Oral-B describes it:
Delivers Expert Guidance with Focused Care: The purpose is not to outsmart dental professionals, but to work hand-in-hand with them. Dental professionals can program patients’ brushing routines in the app to help improve their brushing behaviors and focus on problem zones within the mouth.

While pricing and availability details are still unclear at this point, one thing is sure … I would hate my dentist being able to log into his portal and see how and when I brush my teeth … Imagine him starting to send notifications about it … I can already see his triumphal smile …
