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).
How does it know when to vibrate?
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
Will it work for my child?
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.
Where can I read scientific research about Revibe?
Please click hereto read a compilation of our studies. We also currently have studies underway at Appalachian State University, University of Alabama, and Caldwell University. We are looking forward to sharing the results when they are published in a few months!
Is it waterproof?
It is water 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.
Does it have a watch feature built in?
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.
How do I know which size to order?
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).
Using Revibe at School
Can others around the wearer hear or detect the vibrations?
Revibe Connect’s vibration motors were designed to be whisper-quiet for classroom use.
How do I share the data from the app with my child’s teacher/counselor/doctor/parent, etc.?

How do I turn it On/Off?
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.
How do I adjust the intensity of vibration reminders?
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.
Which wrist do you recommend wearing it on?
We recommend wearing Revibe on your dominant hand.

“My son’s behavior has drastically changed for the better. Revibe allows him to keep himself accountable and redirect himself before a teacher has to. It’s empowered him to do better in school. I also love being able to slip in notes of encouragement to him throughout the day with Revibe’s ‘text reminders’!”

“Y’all, I was worried, but this actually really works. And, it connects to an app on my phone that tells me how well she’s focusing, how often she’s fidgeting, and it has a step counter. It even tells me what parts of her day she’s excelling and struggling with. Last year it was very hard for her teacher to manage her. This year, she’s doing great and getting a sticker every day!”

“Other brands do not offer anything that comes close to Revibe, which is so specifically tailored for inattentive children. Hands down, this is the only option to keep my daughter on track at school. Her teacher even said in week one, ‘Hey! I was about to tell you to focus on your paper but I saw you tap your watch and get to it before I even had a chance to say anything!’ If that doesn't speak volumes, nothing will. Pretty darn cool!”
