Revibe Connect sends silent vibrations to the wrists of users to gently remind them to get back to their work, studies, etc.
When users feel a vibration on their wrist, they are to simply ask themselves: “Am I doing what I’m supposed to be doing?”. If on-task, they keep up the good work! If off-task, it triggers them to get back to the task at hand.
The ultimate goal is to foster independence by increasing metacognition (the act of thinking about one's own thoughts).
We've developed five “Modes”, which determine the frequency of vibration reminders.
“Adaptive Mode” learns the user’s unique focus needs, adjusting the vibration reminders as needed. The user responds to Revibe Connect’s vibration reminders by tapping the device’s screen once if they were off-task, or twice if on-task. These user responses help Revibe’s machine learning algorithm to adapt the vibration reminders over time.
The other four “Modes” are pre-programmed using research based tables to cover various levels of difficulty staying on-task:
1- Low (mildly off-task; occasionally daydreams): Reminders about every 10 minutes
2- Moderate (moderately off-task; often daydreams): Reminders about every 7 minutes
3- High (significantly off-task; constantly daydreams): Reminders about every 4 minutes
4- Homework (for all focus levels): alternating internals of 15 minutes work time (with reminders about every 3 minutes) and 5 minutes break time
Revibe Connect is best suited for kids who may have to rely upon teachers and parents to help them stay on-task. While it won't motivate kids who don't want to stick to their work, it will provide much needed reminders for those who do.

It iswater resistant, not waterproof. Everyday splashes like washing your hands are ok, but please don’t submerge the device into liquid by bathing or swimming with it on.
Yes! Tap the device’s screen once for the time to display. There is a setting in the app where you can disable time display if you are concerned it will be a distraction.
Small fits wrists measuring 10-18 cm in circumference. Regular fits 14-22 cm. We recommend measuring the wrist with a measuring tape (or use a string, then measure the string with a ruler).
Revibe Connect’s vibration motors were designed to be whisper-quiet for classroom use.
There is an option to share your login to the app with others if you choose.
We are working on a PDF export function, a "view only" login option, and a guest login. These updates are coming soon and will allow you to share data with those you specify.

Yes! Every Revibe device comes with a one-year manufacturer's warranty.
The PLUS membership gives you extended coverage that also protects against loss and theft by allowing you to purchase replacement devices for just $44.95. The PLUS membership is optional and has monthly or annual billing options in the App.
Very easy! All you have to do is download the Revibe Connect App from the App or Google Play Store, and follow the in-app Setup Wizard (tells you what to do step-by-step!).
You can turn Revibe on by simply putting it on (the user’s natural movement will wake it up), and turn it off by taking it off and placing it in a quiet place (it will fall asleep within 20 minutes). Additionally, you can manually turn off Revibe in the app under Settings>Preferences>User Device Preferences>Mode>Off.
If you are concerned that the intensity of the vibration is either too strong, or not strong enough, you can adjust this in the app under Settings>Preferences>User Device Preferences>Vibration Strength.
We recommend wearing Revibe on your dominant hand.
