The Pavlok wristband is a behavioral changing tool that helps users break bad habits as well as form good ones using a stimulus of their choosing (zap, beep, or a vibration). Pavlok utilizes the latest technology backed by 80+ years of scientific research based on aversion therapy, which helps users associate their bad habit with an unpleasant effect.

The Shock Clock is based on the Pavlok wristband but focuses solely on allowing the user to wake up on time and get out of bed. The device trains the individual to wake up to a chosen time and in most cases before the alarm even goes off. The user can decide to have a silent vibration, beep alarm, or receive a zap. NEW* Snooze Lock option that forces the user to perform jumping jacks to shut off the alarm, and sleep analysis to help users better understand if they’re truly getting enough rest. The app will even remind you when it’s time to go to sleep each night.

Use this app for the following features:

Commit to good habits you wish to form, or break bad habits you have already developed all while keeping track of your progress. Remember each time you had an urge, a check in (when you’ve done the habit), and have the chance to add personal notes to yourself throughout the day. Track, the number of zaps, to better understand when you’re doing that bad habit. Set alarms to wake up, not miss that meeting, etc. You are now able to set multiple alarms!

Get a better night's rest by tracking your sleep with sleep analysis! Turn on Snooze Lock and be forced to wake up and get out of bed in the morning by performing jumping jacks.

Set a timer so that when the time is up, your Pavlok reminds you.
Set your Pavlok to zap, beep, or vibrate at a particular interval.
Set reminders to do things such as head to the gym, drink water every 30 minutes, etc.
Set a stopwatch to zap you, keeping your hands free!
See the existing integrations for your Pavlok such as integrations with your Chrome browser, Slack, IFTTT, and much more.

Pavlok app also integrates with health kit so you can monitor your sleep patterns in apple health app. If you allow write access to sleep activity, new sleep tracking will automatically be recorded in the Health app when you use sleep tracking on Pavlok.

Something big and disruptive

I love the whole purpose and science behind the PavLok. It is great that we are moving out of the dark ages of brain science and into a new paradigm. This app is not perfect yet, it is still being developed and tweaked and this is the case with all early adopting tech. Let’s be honest if your willing to invest $295 on yourself on the newest bio hack then you know your an early adopter, and it sis people that work the kinks out and help a product reach readiness for the masses. The app has good bones, I like the choice on downloading mini-apps for the app to customize the product to what your looking for. I love the gaming style reward system and the Volts future crypto currency that will be a game changer for reward point systems. I’ve had great responses with support for bugs I’ve discovered along with questions. The more of us that point out the bugs the faster they’ll fix them. If your at all curious about this product, do your self a favor and take the plunge. I am glad I did. I’m giving 4 / 5 as it is still a work in progress...

Solid app, with extras (which can be good or bad)

The app is very solid with a lot of extras (if you just bought the shock watch). I just bought he shock watch so I only need the alarm functions, but it’s nice to see (I guess?) all the additional features if I were to upgrade to the full Pavlok system (including some shockwatch feautuees I don’t use). I wish you could turn off all the alerts and stories from Pavlok you receive upon opening the app, but, then again, I haven’t fiddled with the app much so I may be missing something. Also, they may be beneficial to those who bought it for more than the shockwatch functionality. Overall solid app, with zero bugs I’ve found and it is constantly updated and maintained. Glad to see that considering the money sunk in the product, but with a solid functioning device paired to the solid app, I’m happy with it.

Love the device, hate the alarms

I had such high hopes for the Pavlok. I expected it to break my habits, wake me up in the morning, and generally make me a better person. It has been helping me with a few of my habits, but the waking up part is horrible. When I go onto the app to start the sleep tracking, it starts, then two minutes later an alarm I didn’t set goes off, making me do jumping jacks in the middle of the night. I’ve tried it several times now, and still the same result. Even when the alarm doesn’t happen, it suddenly disconnects, then immediately reconnects making me start the sleep tracking once more. The main reason I got the Pavlok was to wake up in the morning, so if this is how the night goes, I can’t imagine there not being any problems in the night. I’m extremely disappointed. I even was going to give this review about 3 stars, but then it started shocking me, buzzing, and beeping even when it wasn’t in the sleep mode.

It's great to hear you've broken some habits already! Not so much about the alarms.

They are saved directly to the device, so it's possible they did not set correctly. Can you please contact us at, and we can help you resolve this.

Thanks for the support and feedback give, it will help us to keep improving the Pavlok app and device.
