The big question is, of course, does it work? For me, the answer is a resounding yes. The energy vibes I've tried thus far are like a strong cup of tea and get me going for workouts quite well. The calming vibes do a good job of reversing the energy vibes so that I can sleep at night (unlike with caffeine).
The process of running through a vibe feels a lot like using a TENS unit (if you've tried that) - a little tingly and slightly odd, but not unpleasant at all. Each vibe takes 10 to 20 minutes to run through, during which you are free to do whatever you'd like. Vibe times can be extended, and you can pause, stop, or restart them at any time.
The strips can be reused, but do eventually wear out. I find that they last longer if I clean the skin where I attach them before putting them on. An alcohol wipe is a convenient method for this. Given the price of the strips and my propensity to be a cheapskate, this is important to me :)
The only issue that I have with this unit is Android support - an issue that they are obviously actively working on. When I first saw the list of Android devices that they claim to support, I thought that this would be like many Android apps which claim support on a few devices but really work on most anyway. Not so here - the app didn't even appear in the Android Store on unsupported devices, so it was impossible to even try. If you have an Android device, try downloading the app BEFORE you buy the device to save some frustration. Some other reviewers have complained about the device disconnecting during a vibe - this is what they are trying to avoid by blocking some devices. I presume iOS users don't see this.
I'll continue to update this review as developments warrant. Once the Android issues get resolved, I think this thing deserves 5 stars.
August update: I've been using the same strips repeatedly with no apparent degradation. So while they don't last forever, with a little care they do last a while (20-30 uses and going strong).
I don't see any change in the status of Android support, but I'm still watching for it...
We definitely use the calm more often for anxiety relief and it really does work. Better than taking Xanax.
It's easy to use, strips keep stickiness for quite a while, easy to on/of, charging simple mini USB, about an hour. Doesn't last more than an hour though. But for falling asleep you don't need it.
I know no one explains it, but you have to really feel the beat, go with it, pay attention to it, and be prepared to go to sleep, in order for it to work. Not reading Facebook on your phone while it plays in the background. Close your eye and feel it. You will be gone in 15 minutes. With energizing one I guess you just do the opposite.
I then thought, aha, I will download it on my iPod. The app only works with iOS 8.x, my 4th generation iPod touch is iOS 6.1.6. I updated iTunes on my computer and tried to update the iOS for my iPod, but alas, it insisted that iOS 6.1.6 is the most current version available. After much MORE searching I learned that Apple bypassed the 4th generation iPod touch and only the 5th generation iPod touch will be updated to the iOS 8.x.
Well rats. Two devices, no app. SO disappointing. I will revisit this review when I actually have the ability to USE the device which will be immediately after the app becomes available to android unless there is some other nit-picky nuance lurking around the corner.
The minute the android app became available I downloaded and installed it on my phone with no issues. It paired with the Thync with no issues. I got started with the welcome calm, and discovered that the Bluetooth connection drops every 6 to 12 seconds. Really? Some reviews in the play store mention this issue, and I had hoped it would not be true for me, but it was. I made sure that all previous/additional pairings were undone and tried again. No change.
I don't find it extra particularly calming to have to reset the Bluetooth connection every 6-12 seconds in a 20 minute period... but I did seem to get a result anyway. That is encouraging. But the fact remains that every time it starts to feel really cool the connection drops, and so my rating stays at three stars until I can try it on a newer iPod or until the app is fixed. Bummer.
