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.
