How Pavlok Works

How Pavlok Works


Pavlok isn’t just some random wearable that “shocks” you. In fact, it is designed with both the latest science and habit change research on its side.


Wear Your Willpower

At it’s most simple form, Pavlok is a behavior training device that works by utilizing Aversive Conditioning. Aversive conditioning is essentially behavior training that uses negative stimuli and association to help reaffirm a specific action as undesirable.

The reason so many people continue to smoke even though they know it’s bad… is because for many smoking IS pleasurable.

The reason so many people continue to consume unhealthy snack after unhealthy snack is because it often DOES taste good.

And that’s why Pavlok is ultimately so effective.

Using the slightly uncomfortable stimulus of a shock, Pavlok helps train your brain to associate the bad behavior with the uncomfortable stimulus. And after as little as a few weeks of associating the two with consistent use, your brain begins to say:

“Hey wait a second. Maybe I DON’T like smoking.”

“Hey wait a second, maybe that donut doesn’t do much for me at all.”

Which puts the ball back in your court.

You know that friend who won’t eat Taco Bell anymore after she got a terrible case of food poisoning? Or your other friend who swore off alcohol after having three too many shots?

That’s aversive conditioning.

The Process Is Simple

While many users have used Pavlok to break their habits for GOOD, we know that habit change is a life long journey.

Even with the best tools, resources, and knowledge on your side, we can sometimes slip up. Which is what makes Pavlok so powerful.

You can use the device whenever you need and as much as you want. So you are always equipped to handle whatever life throws your way.

So while it may seem like “overkill” to literally zap yourself every time you engaged in a bad behavior, it’s quite possibly one of the most effective ways to truly alter your behavior.

Best yet, the process is simple.

Wear your Pavlok throughout the day.

Whenever you engage in the behavior you’re trying to quit, give yourself a zap.

Within 3-5 days, you’ll begin to notice your cravings significantly reduced if not gone entirely.

If you’re looking to quit smoking, stop biting your nails, or cut that unhealthy guilty pleasure out of your life and more.

How It Works

It’s really simple. Pavlok works by combing hardware and a mobile app to get you life-changing results!

Pavlok is worn around your wrist and it uses a small electric zap (just like walking across a rug and touching a doorknob) by simply pushing the button on your wristband… or by remote control on the Pavlok smartphone app… whenever you find yourself craving or actually doing the behavior you want to get rid of.

Some habits are “self jolt” (smoking, nail biting, going to the gym… just to name a few) where you will manually press the button on your wristband…

And other habits can be set with our app (waking up on time or staying off time-wasting websites).

The Hardware

Pavlok has two parts… the wristband and the module.

The wristband is “one size fits all”, and made from a sleek silicone that’s lightweight and extremely durable…

You can also choose from all sorts of different colors… (The standard wristband comes in black).

The module fits inside the wristband and holds the rechargeable battery, electronic components and Bluetooth.

Pavlok’s battery has the capacity for over 150+ tiny jolts and it recharges quickly (it comes with a micro USB).

While the Bluetooth chip is low energy and connects Pavlok to your smart phone.

The Software

The full app (which can be downloaded on any smartphone) starts with a 5-day audio habit change course that will literally walk you through every step to getting started with your Pavlok and breaking your habit.

It also provides you with courses helping to break “specific” bad habits…

  • Smoking
  • Unhealthy eating
  • Nail biting
  • And more

You’ll have full use of a remote control inside the app, to conveniently control your Pavlok from your phone… and… to set automated shock options for various habits.

One of those “automated shock options” is the Pavlok Alarm Clock, that vibrates to wake you up… but if you sleep through it (or if you hit snooze), it will give you a little zap to get you out of bed.

We are continually upgrading and improving the app on an everyday basis… So there will be added features and benefits constantly for you to take advantage of.

It’s Completely Safe And Tested

Pavlok is 100% controlled by you… and each “little shock” is easy to administer, it’s timed, and has a pre-selected intensity that you can adjust with the app on your phone.

In no time flat – a few hours to just a couple of days – you will literally forget you even had this habit to begin with…
