Pavlok is a wearable device that you can use to help cut bad habits or create new desirable habits.
But you can also link it to Strava, via IFTTT, which means you can take Strava to a new competitive level with your friends.
Pavlok and Strava
This is insane.
You know that “uh-oh” email you get when you lose a KOM? That can be pretty motivating in terms of making you want to get out there and smash that segment to reclaim your KOM. It is YOURS after all, right?
Now you can ZAP your friends when you beat their segment times. And they can ZAP you when they beat yours.
Yes, when I say ZAP, I mean little electric shocks.
Imagine it. You and your friends have some healthy competition over some local segments, but you hold the best time. You can set Pavlok up so that if anyone beats that time, it will zap you!
