Bracelet shocks you into breaking bad habits

 By: Liz Tufts

As many of us are still working on keeping those New Year’s resolutions. There’s a new accessory that could actually help.

It’s called the Pavlok wristband, an electronic bracelet that has one primary job to send an electrical shock to your body every time you find yourself doing something wrong.

Here’s how it works.

The device is designed to give you a shock anytime you give into temptation, but other people can also use an app to remotely send you a jolt to keep you in line.

The internet is packed with testimonials from people who have used the bracelet to help quit biting their nails, eat less, and even quit smoking.

The bracelet is available online and will cost you $250.
