You can buy a bracelet that shocks you if you eat too much or have too many sugary drinks

You can buy a bracelet that shocks you if you eat too much or have too many sugary drinks

While the bracelet will set you back a steep sum, it will apparently stop your bad habits.

These days, there is certainly some fancy technology out there, whether that is the latest smartphone or laptop or games console.

But in recent years, a lot of unconventional tech has certainly popped up, some of which can track our lifestyle.

And this latest gadget is marketed as stopping all out bad habits.

Whether that is smoking after saying you'd quit, or even something as simple as biting your fingernails.

We can all names our bad habits, right?

But what if I told you there was a device out there that could help you removed those constant bad habits.

The fancy piece of tech is said to tell you of your bad habits.

While the item will set you back $149 (£116), it is said to remove all them bad habits from your life that may have been around for many a year.

Sounds somewhat unrealistic, right? But that is exactly what the bracelet known as Pavlok 2 claims to do.

The fancy piece of tech boasts 150 zaps per charge, ensuring the battery charge should last several days.

However, if you do have a lot of bad habits, then it could be zapping a few more times than the average person.

So technically, this device is judging you for all your life decisions.

So the Pavlok 2 can be set up to give you an electric shock to discourage all sorts of bad habits such as eating too much junk food, drinking too many sugary drinks or even problems with gambling.

A product description for the device reads: "Pavlok allows you to speak your reptile brain's language by adding an unpleasant element (a safe and harmless 'zap' of electricity on your wrist) to what you have been taught to love (your nasty lingering habit)."

The description goes on to say: "Quickly conditioning your mind to associate an 'unpleasant' feeling with your bad habit... and stopping it altogether."

Pavlok 2 retails at over £100.

What's more, in 2016 British software company Intelligent Environments found a way to link up the Pavlok 2 to your bank account, so a user could theoretically make the bracelet shock them if their funds go below a set amount - although it's unclear if any banks partnered with Intelligent Environments to allow this.

One particular Pavlok 2 user was very happy with their purchase, penning: "Very good product. I use it every morning as an alarm clock!

"This bracelet made me completely quit smoking despite my doubts when I bought it."

Maybe $150 isn't too steep to say goodbye to all your bad habits after all...
