Wow. I didn't click on the link, but if that's real... just wow. I would never buy such a thing. I want exercise to be as pleasant and enjoyable as I can while pushing myself at the same time, not something I fear an electric shock from if I refrain from it for a certain time period.

Haha! How about a shock if I eat something stupid like cake? Lol
That's crazy. I do get a kick out of the fitbit buzz when you reach 10,000.

If I did have one and it started shocking me, I'd just take it off. I mean...who wouldn't take something off if it was shocking them?!

I'm sure the bracelet would just get taken off.

Our society is so desperate to lose weight without having to work at it, that most of us try at least one crazy thing at some point!
You NEVER regret a workout! Love Sojo

No Way...Just saw a TV commercial for a new plastic looking waist gadget that you wear. It's supposed to replace gastric surgery. Sounds way to fishy to me. Why not wear a straight jacket or solder up your pantry?

Nope. No way no how would I purchase a device that uses shock to induce me to keep exercising. We want exercise to be a POSITIVE experience, not a negative one.
zapping someone will not induce them to work a bit harder. It's just a matter of time before they get so fed up with the device that they chuck it out.
Positive reinforcement works better than negative reinforcement.
It's a shame that they wasted all that creativity and innovation on something that punishes when instead they could have made something that says, "Oh, come on. You already did 8000 steps today; just 2000 more and you'll hit your goal! 2000 is nothing! Come on, let's go!"
Don't shock or nag; cajole! How cool a name would that be-- The Cajoler 1000.

I would prefer a sofa that delivers a SHOCKING reminder if you've been sitting more than 2 hours.
