News 18/06/2019

Breaking habits can take a lifetime, but Amazon has come to our rescue and created an electric shock bracelet.

Whether it's too quit smoking or just get out of bed earlier, this bracelet has you covered, by sending zaps through your body to remind you to stop. 

But don't worry the pain isn't that bad, its compared to touching a doorknob after running your socks on the carpet.

There's a real power in using a little bit of pain to help you break your bad habits,

Says the creator.

One major drawback to this invention is the cost... This strap is retailing for US$200 (NZ$307). 

Is kicking that addiction worth the money?
