    Temporarily useful but can be annoying

    Posted .

    Pros: * Small and light * Charging via USB-C * Effortless pairing with BTLE * Nice app with helpful prompts and hints * Convenient storage tray for unit and extra sticky pads Cons: * Not something you’ll use often after initial training * Can be very annoying while in use My Review: Most of us unknowingly slouch… a lot… without realizing it. This tends to cause back pain or other problems that again, we didn’t know could be easily helped by sitting or standing up straight. That’s where the Upright Go 2 comes in. It can make you more aware when you’re slouching and correct that behavior over time. You can also just wear it to remind you not to slouch (but probably won’t). This tiny, lightweight unit charges up over USB-C and easily pairs to your phone over BTLE. Starting out you just wear it for short periods of time to train your awareness of your posture. After that, you can wear it all day to remind you when you’re slouching. The battery should last about 30 hours of use between charges but keep in mind that it’s not really designed to be worn while you’re sweating or wet so no gym use, no swimming, and definitely no wearing in the shower or out in the rain ;-) The little pod comes with a pack of reusable and replaceable sticky pads so that you can adhere it on the top part of your back where you can comfortably reach. The app is really nice to get you started and make you more aware of your posture. The problem that I noticed while using and training with it was that I rarely sat or stood still while “in training.” I’d bend over to get something or tilt forward to reach for something and the unit would buzz at me to stop slouching even though I wasn’t. This was annoying as I’d really try to maintain my posture but got “corrected” when I was just doing something normal that wasn’t actually slouching. Anyway, this little training device can really help if you’re prone to poor posture. After you’ve raised your awareness of this bad posture, though, the device is not incredibly useful. You probably will not end up wearing it regularly - especially after your training is over. So you get that benefit of the training and then leave it in a drawer until your bad habits drift back and you need a refresher course. If the training aspects seem useful to you, then this device can definitely help you be more aware of bad posture and help you get in the habit of sitting or standing up straight. Once you get that benefit, the device probably will start gathering dust…. unless you can gift it to someone else who might need it.

    GO 2 has got your back!

    Posted .

    The Upright GO 2 is a posture trainer which claims to improve alignment, strength back muscles and develop your core...quite a lot for what is essentially a battery powered accelerometer. The GO 2 is small and fairly discrete at 1” wide and 1.75” long. The device affixes to your skin with replaceable adhesive strips which last up to a week in my experience. The adhesive does lose its grip fairly easily once you perspire so probably best to take the device off before a workout. After placing the device at a comfortable point on your back, you set your upright posture. Upright has helpful videos to guide you through placement of the device and how to find your upright posture. You can set you posture either through the app or by double clicking the button on the device itself. After this the device vibrates to let you know when you are slouching or bending beyond a certain point based on the training mode you set between stationary, standard, and active. The different modes adjust the sensitivity and length of time before the GO 2 alerts you of incorrect posture. Preset modes are nice and convenient but the app also allows you to further customize the modes to make the device work best for you. It would be nice if the device could automatically switch between the training modes based on accelerometer activity but the app makes it easy enough to change modes. When your phone isn’t nearby the GO 2 has a few functions that can be performed with the button on the device such as power, set posture, and switching between training and tracking. The GO 2 also comes with a magnetic carrying case that has an opening to charge the device while in the case. The battery life is excellent, I can go several days without needing to recharge the device. After customizing the vibration, delay, and range I found the device helpful without being annoying. The app provides stats on your posture, revealing I slouch much more than I realized! After using the device for a week I find myself correcting my posture even when I am not wearing the GO 2, making this an easy recommendation to all of those hunched over a screen reading this!

    Just as you expected--a tiny vibrator on your back

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Design, Ease of use, Features

    This Upright GO 2 is dead-simple for those of you looking for a smart device that will assist you in breaking (or at least curbing) that nagging slouching habit you picked up somewhere along the way. And in that capacity, it does the tings you'd pretty much expect something like this device to do once you put it on your back: it vibrates like a tiny cell phone when it senses you've slouched during an awareness/consciousness-raising training session; it vibrates whenever you exceed maximum "slouchyness" for as long as you want to keep it turned on and affixed to your skin; or you can let it silently track your posture and then report back later via app how poorly you really carried yourself throughout the day. Naturally, you can mix and match these functions for personalized training and results, but that's pretty much the extent of things. It's definitely well-designed and user-friendly for what it needs to do, but the GO2 per se really isn't all that mystical in its function or operation. There are no scary electrodes or complicated muscle sensors involved with this trainer--it doesn't care about your body type, weight, or anything about your skeletal structure. In fact, the GO2 doesn't really start off knowing what the "correct" upright posture looks like for you at all. At its heart, it's basically just a Bluetooth-enabled tilt sensor that you zero out at the start of each session/use Then it measures the extent of your movement forward (ONLY!) off the vertical axis...side-slouchers are out of luck, and if you slouch down in your chair or throw yourself WAAAAYYY backwards, the GO2 doesn't seem to care, either. That's not to say it doesn't work--curl/slouch yourself forward from the spot you initially zeroed out and the GO2 will obligingly vibrate (or report a slouch later in the app) after you exceed so many degrees of poor posture after so many seconds have passed. You can customize the physical "slouch threshold" angle and duration in the app, or choose one of three presets that allow progressively more slouch for progressively longer periods of time before setting off the alert: Stationary (extended sitting/standing), Standard (mild movement/activity), and Active (lots of movement). Assuming you've actually set a proper "upright" position to start things off (a mirror or partner can help if you're a poor judge of your own posture even when you ARE trying to straighten out), the GO2 really does do a good job of sensing when you're slouching. In fact, you'll probably be surprised how often you unnecessarily slouch (or you'll become irritated at how often the buzzer confirms that you do indeed have poor posture!)--and the latest firmware improves the sensing routines to accommodate things like stopping to tie your shoe or picking up a box from the floor without setting off the slouch alert/vibration. From a design side, the flattened bean-shaped GO2 sensor is smooth to the touch with a single indentation marking the "everything button" that controls power, adjusts the operating mode, manual upright calibration etc. The backside has a soft-gel, semi-reusable adhesive similar to that on the underside of a TENS unit's electrode. I found mine sticky enough to stay in place all day at office-worker type activity levels; and the stick-um didn't really start to lose adhesion until after about 10-12 days. The package comes with some new adhesives and a guitar-pick shaped scraper to remove the old backing and apply a fresh one. Yes, the adhesive gel snagged a few body hairs on the way off from time to time, but it's not even as aggressive as a Band-Aid, so those of you with lots of body hair probably need not worry. Between uses, the included magnetic case securely holds the GO2 bean in place while accommodating charging via the USB-C port through a thoughtfully provided cutout via the included USB-C cable...personally, I find this little design touch a VERY nice upgrade from the typical, breakage-prone micro-USB connectors featured on so many smart devices these days. Pairing with my iPhone X was simple and took all of a few seconds. The app gives you a user-friendly means of assessing your posture (graphically), changing preferences and device settings including vibration patterns and strength, tracking your progress, giving you little encouraging pop-up messages, reminders, and alerts, etc. And while I grimaced at yet another product's companion app that required me to create a login and password, hats-off to Upright for making it such that you actually don't HAVE to use the companion app to still use the underlying product! Yes, you can adjust posture settings and operating modes of the GO2 bean using the physical "everything button" and still get all the slouch alert vibrations you can tolerate. In sum...the GO2 is actually a very effective, very thorough, very thoughtfully designed, and very accessible package...for as long as you choose to use it. And that's the only rub I see with a product like this. If you have poor posture like I do (and if you don't, why are you here?), the short, app-provided training sessions alone maybe aren't going to cut it. Personally, I'm trying to unlearn decades of poor posture, so simply telling me I slouched for XXX minutes today isn't necessarily effective for changing behavior. To break a habit, I need the GO2's vibrations to help me recognize the problem as it occurs so I can correct it on the spot--like a Pavlovian dog when it hears a bell. But once that mid- to end-of-day work fatigue sets in, I typically get annoyed with the frequent vibrations, or constantly having to adjust between active and stationary modes, and end up switching to tracking mode (which is frankly too depressing for me to keep reviewing) or just turning the GO2 off entirely. Mind you, I'm not faulting the GO2--it's doing EXACTLY what I need it to do and EXACTLY what it's designed to do--this is all me and my horrible, horrible posture! I just didn't realize up front what a tough nut poor posture was going to be to crack and how much will-power, determination, and tolerance it was going to require on my part to make things a success. Yeah, I'm glad I have the GO2 even though I'm often irritated by it doing what I've asked it to do. But, if YOU respond well to tracking/training apps, and that increased sense of self-awareness can help you change and regulate your own behavior accordingly, the GO2 is likely the fix you're going to need for periodic, short-term posture training and re-training. If you require more constant correction and conditioning (as unfortunately I do), just be aware that you may have to overcome some self-inflicted annoyance and "user fatigue" in addition to the poor posture you're trying to tackle at the same time! Recommended...so long as you know what you're getting into.

    Very well designed posture trainer

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Design, Ease of use, Features

    The idea of this product is to remind you when one is slouching. I work at an office and I noticed that I might be sitting in unhealthy positions. (ie slouching). It's not pleasant, and it affects the spine over time. How this works: There is a small device that has to be stuck on your back, and connects over Bluetooth to your phone. There are two modes of operation: 1. Training mode vibrates on the device on your back *every*time* you slouch, even when picking up things or leaning to look at something. This gets old quick, so it's best to use for a few minutes a day. 2. The normal mode of operation communicates with your phone and after a few minutes it will remind you on your phone to correct the posture. Device: It's fairly small but still noticeable. Attach it right below your neck, on your back on or around your spine. It comes with a pack of 10 reusable adhesives. The adhesives are like a gel that attaches gently but firmly, although it's best to use indoors. Each adhesive can be used multiple times, depending on skin (ie oily skin or sweat). It's easy to peel and doesn't pull hairs (like a bandage would). It's a lot gentler than that. It charges using an USB-C connector (USB-A to USB-C cable included), although it does not charge at USB-C. Charge is rather slow and initial charge takes a few hours. It has a single pressure-sensitive button (not an actual button but an indentation that one presses -- It's a good design with no openings do it's easier to keep clean. There is a light, inside the device that turns red while charging, green when charging and blue when paired. It comes in a nice plastic jewel case with a magnetic close, with an opening for the USB-C charging cable so it can be charged while on the case. The bottom of the case has marking so the sticky reusable pad can rest on it. On the other half, there is a holder for an additional sticky pad. App: Works on iOS and Android. This review is for iOS: - The first time, it asks some questions including general health and habits. However it does not connect with Apple HealthKit to obtain general information, however it syncs back data to HealthKit as 'Mindful Minutes'. This is optional and by default it does not sync. - The app is very intuitive, with a quick and thorough welcome mode with optional videos. - It then starts a training program with a few minutes the first day and goes from there. - At any time it can switch between the training and tracking mode. - In tracking mode, the app stays in the background and notifies via a phone notification when it detects too much slouching. - iOS app has Apple Watch integrations (Did not test it). Every time one puts on the device, it needs to 'calibrate' a few seconds with the app open to detect the body's straight up position (Or by pressing the button on the device twice after putting it on). Desktop app: Available from the Mac Appl Store, it syncs with the iOS app (Tracker -> iOS app -> macOS app) which shows a widget which is neat while working, so I can see if it detects slouching while working, without having to look at the phone. Supplies: More sticky pads can be ordered online and via the app, with free shipping. Currently is about less than $ 1 per adhesive (which again, lasts a few applications each). Customer service: A chat with customer service (based in Israel) is available through the app itself. Overall, I'd say it's effective. It motivates to keep a better posture, which is the goal of this system. However the major caveat is that it's not a comprehensive system. It tracks the 'incline' of the device attached to the back, not if the rest of your back is straight. Also one could be working on a desk, leaning on it but not slouching, and if the device measures a resting angle, it will treat it the same as slouching. This would be the major caveat, however after a a few days, I noticed on the app that there is a software update that extended the battery life from 30 to 45 hours on a single charge, and among other features it claims that it improves false detection, like when one is leaning down, it won’t track it as slouching. This is a welcome addition, and shows that they're working on improvements.

    Good Things Come in Small Packages

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Ease of use, Price

    In the box you will find - the Upright GO 2™ posture trainer device (approx. 1” x 2”) inside a small white container that allows access to the charging port on the device inside so you don’t need to remove it to charge it, the charging cable, 6 alcohol prep pads, 10 adhesive pads that you stick on the device with one side and stick on your upper back at your spine with the other for testing to commence. There is an adhesive removal tool (looks like a guitar pick). You will also find the small owner’s manual packed inside. The idea of this device is to be a reminder of correcting your posture, while helping you strengthen your core, which is the center of most back problems. Nip it in the bud before it starts or train for better posture within a few weeks to strengthen your core to help with the problems you are already having with your back. You need to download and install an app that walks you through the steps to get the device up and running. You will need to calibrate your posture through the app each time you put this on because you will probably never have it in the exact same place twice applying it yourself. This is to help teach the device your correct posture so it will know when to vibrate. I personally think this is a great idea for someone with poor posture because being someone who ignored their poor posture for so many years and has had started to have problems with their back, I thought it would be most helpful to maybe help relieve some of the pain I am now suffering from. I just have to hope that it is not too late, but to even help alleviate a small bit of pain would be better than nothing. For the price, I think it is well worth taking the chance. It is not recommended to wear this while exercising, running, etc, because sweating may prevent the adhesive tabs to have a good hold and may cause the device to fall off. I highly recommend this especially for people who were like me and never bothered much about their posture. This is a simple training technique and I can’t wait to “feel the burn” by just sitting correctly at my desk where I basically live. The best part is that it actually serves a dual purpose for me. When I start the slouching, the reminder not only reminds me to sit up straight, but also to get up from my desk and move around for a little bit…take a break. There are two modes, tracking and training on the app. Tracking mode is basically what it says, it tracks the status of your posture. In training mode, it will vibrate every time it senses you are slouching and will make you straighten up. This will also vibrate if you bend over to pick something up, etc. So, it really detects when you are not standing or sitting upright. You might do best in the morning, when you go to put this on, to get ready before applying it so that it doesn’t continually think you are slouching while moving around to get ready. I mostly want this as a reminder, so I like leaving this in training mode, so I can kick my bad slouching habit in the bud. I highly recommend this product. You can't beat the price because not only can I use it for myself, but once I have trained, everyone else in my family can also use it to improve their posture. If I find myself slouching again, I can always retrain myself and so can they.

    No more slouchy posture. My little Upright Go 2 trainer always makes me aware of my posture and warns me "buzzes" when I slouch. I often sit in lazy posture and do not really pay attention, this ended me up chronically complaining of my back. I was not sure about how worthy this can be but after 2 days of use, I found it very needed and it does help me remember to sit straight in the chair. Great innovation and easy to use, the adhesive strip is reusable and sticks nicely.

    Posture Coaching

    Posted .

    I tend to sit a lot at work, even though I have a standing desk and I noticed that my shoulders were hunching over and I was slouching more. I saw this and thought it would be a fun way to improve my posture. I've used it for about 10 days now and here's what I like and what I don't: Pros: * Small, lightweight and comes with adhesives (haven't had to change mine yet) * App is easy to use * Travel case and USB charging cable are nice to have * Tracking mode lets you see how your posture has been during the day * Training mode will cause the unit to vibrate if you slouch for 4 continuous seconds, more time is added so you gradually go for longer periods of time. Cons: * No integration with Apple Health - it would be nice to connect it with my Health app to get all of my health and fitness info in one place. * Pairing on Day 1 was a bit of a challenge - the app said the device couldn't be found and the unit itself wouldn't turn on - putting it on the charger seemed to reset whatever loop it was stuck in. * No power puck - like most gadgets nowadays, you get a cord to plug in, but now puck to connect to the wall, so they assume you have spare pucks or USB-A ports somewhere that aren't being used. All in all, I like it and I genuinely like new tech that helps me improve my quality of life by not being in the way. So far, I'm digging this thing and I'm noticing that I'm self correcting my posture more now than I did before I wore it. So at least, I'm more aware now of when my posture needs to be corrected.

    It definitely works!

    Posted .

    I will summarize this from the start. Does it work? It definitely does. A correct posture while walking or sitting is great for your health in general but especially for your back and neck. Does it boost your confidence? That is up to you but I can guarantee that you will LOOK more confident. That is just plain science and common sense. Just look at people who walk with their heads down or slouching and you will unconsciously deem them as lacking confidence. The ones who walk upright are perceived as people who know exactly what they want. Whether that is true or not is not important here but it is what perception of body language is all about. This device will help you with that. The reason I was interested in the Upright GO2 was not so much because of my posture while walking. I spend many hours sitting at a desk. By the end of the day, I feel the pressure on my back. Fortunately, that goes away within a couple of hours or so but I am concerned about my back in the future if I continue like this. The Upright GO 2 was much smaller than I expected and it stayed on my back easily. I could only tell it was there because it made sure I would remember every time I would slouch, even just a little bit while sitting or doing anything that required looking down. Yes, it was a torture the first day. I was almost having a panic attack and my stomach literally hurt. It is not physically painful but being constantly buzzed (vibration only) is not easy to get used to. However, I have learned how to control it a lot better and am sure that in a few more days, I will be totally fine with it. The truth is, I am learning how to sit and walk upright, which has caused the “buzz” or vibration to decrease significantly. I even found out that my walking was not as great as I thought it was. I learned after the first day that you could control the sensitivity and that is something that you might want to do unless you are not bothered as much as I am by the constant vibration or buzz as I call it. My recommendation though it that you start with less sensitivity in the first two days and then move it to normal so you continue to improve your posture. If you exercise, you might want to make it less sensitive or just change it to tracking instead of training. In tracking mode, it will just remind you every 15 minutes that your posture has not been good . It stayed in place during my daily workout but it does not seem to be a good idea to use it in that situation, at least not in training mode. I do recommend its use. It is actually working very well for me. It has helped me correct my posture in most situations, especially at the desk and walking. It is so light and comfortable that you would easily forget it was there if you never slouched.

    Great Posture Trainer

    Posted .

    I work in an office job and unfortunately spend more time than I'd like sitting in meetings and behind a desk. Over the last nine months, my lower back started to ache (not terribly, but enough to be uncomfortable), and I thought maybe this could help. The device comes in a case that is easy to carry around. It would have been great if the case could have held the USB charging cable too, as opposed to just the device, but that is a small complaint. The device is only maybe 2 in tall and comes with an adhesive that allows you to stick the device to your back. Download the app, turn it on, pair it with your phone, and you are all set. I've used it for a few days now and like the fact that it is simple to calibrate. Sit in an upright position and calibrate it. From there, it will sense when you start to slouch and vibrate if you have it on training mode. Use tracking mode for allow it to track / report your position through the rest of the day. The app gives you feedback on how you are doing. It seems to work pretty well. My posture seems better (or at least I'm more aware of when I am slouching, and can correct it quicker). Hopefully this will help alleviate some of my back pain over time. I would definitely recommend it for someone that is in an office job like me that feels like they could have better posture and avoid slouching.

    Works as advertised - if you keep it up!

    Posted .

    I had used my Upright for a week as soon as I got it, as i was anxious and have always been a sloucher. For that week, as I got into work, i put it on when it reminded me around 10AM, and kept it on for a few hours. After taking it off, I noticed myself naturally standing up straighter - meaning it was working! You also get emails congratulating you on your completion of trainings, which include discounts for replacement sticky pads. Then the problem - I got sick, I wasn't going to work, and I didn't have my upright go on me (as I left it at work). Then the daily reminders and emails about using it - got to be a bit annoying. Upon returning to work, my battery had died, and although it comes with everything you need in the little carrying case (device and extra pads) - the charge cable doesn't fit in it the case, and I don't have many USB C cables, so then it went a couple of more days before getting to recharge it again. Now being back on, it now feels weird to keep using it - as in it feels more like a chore than it did when I first started. In other words, if you start it, don't stop! Make sure you have the cable handy wherever it is you keep your device! I will still continue to use it, and I'm sure after a few days I'll get back to naturally standing up straight, which is exactly what I want and need.

    Useful, with limitations

    Posted .

    This is an interesting device. I'm a fairly big guy (6', 175), and it nestles beneath a casual shirt unobtrusively. it would be pretty obvious with a dress shirt / jacket. The device tapes to your back, and you enter one of two modes on your phone - training or tracking. In training mode, it helps you feel what upright is like for five minutes. in tracking mode, it warns you when you slouch and keeps a record of your good versus slouched posture. Of course, this assumes that you understand what upright posture looks and feels like in order to set your baseline. This is tricky for someone like me, because if I knew that, I might not slouch. But, a mirror and a helpful girlfriend allowed me to sort that part out. It also only looks at front to back slouching, not side to side, dropped shoulder, or bending your spine. It would be far more useful if it tracked at least the dropped shoulder / side slouch. When wearing this, be aware that if you bend for any reason - tying your shoe, eating your soup, whatever - it will tell you that you're slouching. This can get old during certain activities, Overall, I'm going to keep using it for a while and see if it can help me with my slouching habit. I'm hoping that by vibrating when I don't know I'm slouching. I'll be able to forgive it for interrupting my lunch.

    The product works well as described, and I found no issues. However, it is not something to put on for the whole day, while doing your daily tasks. This is good for conditions like working at desk, standing or walking for an extended time. You can calibrate the product and it gives you warning when you slouch. If you leave it on during the day, since your posture is not constant and you bend and move, it gives you too many unwanted warning. I strongly recommend this for the people working at desk for long hours. I also wish the add Apple watch App for upright go 2. They only offer it for go 1.

    Better sit down

    Posted .

    I feel like I'm constantly catching myself slouching, so I thought I'd give this product a try. I am a stay-at-home mom with twins and 2 puppies. Needless to say, I'm constantly moving around the house. In training mode, I actually found this product somewhat irritating. It would buzz me if I leaned slightly forward. So, for picking up anything, leaning forward to reach something, etc., it would buzz me. Feeding the dogs, getting dinner ready, washing dishes... buzz, buzz, buzz. I decided to just turn it to the tracking mode. Much better. Perhaps I need to play around with the baseline posture position, and make it more forgiving. I had the tracking mode on for a few hours when I decided to check the app to see how I was doing. The device was disconnected. I had to connect it again, and then it wanted me to set my posture position again. It disconnected one other time throughout the day. Note that I have a Pixel 2 phone. I'm giving this device 3 stars because I could see how this would be a totally awesome product for someone with a desk job. I used to be a web developer and would sit at a desk for 8 hours a day. I really wish I had the posture trainer then. I suggest, if you really want to give this product a try... you better sit down.

    Accurately Detects Posture, Gives Gentle Feedback

    Posted .

    The Go 2 Posture Trainer does exactly what it is supposed to do: It sticks on my back, it detects my posture (quite accurately), and it gives me gentle vibration feedback to alert me to correct slouching. The device is about the size of a matchbook, and sticks to your back, directly on the skin, using silicone gel adhesives. You get 9 adhesives in the package, and the instructions say that each one can be used 5-10 times. UPRIGHT will sell you more on their website. Go 2 works best with a companion app that tracks your progress, both during short training sessions (with feedback) and other times (tracking only - no feedback). The app reminds you to complete a training session each day. Having data about my posture throughout the day has been really interesting, and getting reminders to sit or stand more upright during training sessions has certainly been helpful. Time will tell whether or not my posture without feedback will improve... but so far, I'm enjoying the Go 2.

    Fine products with some quirks.

    Posted .

    This is a fine device which works with a phone app. User put on the device and it connects with the app and you stand vertical and set your straight position. Later if you tilt more than a certain degree the device will vibrate. In my testing it does not cover all the scenarios, if you are not used to of sitting straight and lean forward this will do the job. It did not work for me when I was on the couch lying on side, I knew my back was not straight but it did not vibrate. That makes me believe that it only checks difference in angle vertically. The pads are fine, though I do not think each one will last more than 10 times. It comes with 10 stickers in the pack and this is going to be a recurring cost. I will recommend it if you slouch and want something which can act as a quick reminder, it may not solve other issues but nor does it claim to be.

    Great device for your health

    Posted .

    I've worked in an office environment for my entire career. This means sitting at my desk or sitting in thousands of meetings. My posture has been terrible for years and I live with ongoing lower back pain. Despite trying to think about improving it, I've had no progress. WIth the Upright - GO 2™ Posture Trainer, I now have something to give me a gentle reminder throughout the day that I need to continually improve my posture. I was skeptical about sticking something on my back, but after the first 30 minutes or so, I didn't even notice it other than the gentle reminders to stop slouching. This device requires downloading an app which tracks your posture. The app allows you to set what you want the device to do. You can "train" or "track" your posture. Training mode enables the device to vibrate when your back is not in a good posture position. Tracking mode provides push notifications to your phone on how your doing. I chose to go with training mode. I've been using the device for a few days now. Although I haven't noticed any decrease in my lower back pain, I will continue to use it and see how I feel in the next thirty days. The only thing I don't like is the need to order the pads which stick to your back. They come in 30-day packs. This is a very interesting device to improve your overall health.

    OK But Gets Annoying Quickly

    Posted .

    The Upright Go 2 posture trainer is an OK device that will alert you to your bad posture initially. It's not only the buzzing that reminds you about your slouching, but knowing the device is on your back will make you think about standing and sitting more upright. However, after a few days, the buzzing can get annoying. Bend over to eat, buzzing, bend over to tie your shoes, buzzing. There is a setting to delay the number of seconds until buzzing, but there are a number of routine activities that will keep setting the device off. After a few days, it can get annoying. Also, be aware that the manual says it's a USB C plug, but as I found out while traveling, you can't use a "smart" charge cable. My USB C to USB C cable wouldn't work (also confirmed by support which was quick and helpful). Need to carry around ANOTHER cable if you want to be able to charge the device while traveling.

    Pavlov’s dog training for humans

    Posted .

    The Upright - GO 2™ Posture Trainer - White works in similar fashion to the dog collar that conditions the dog not to travel beyond a certain point or be subject to receiving an electrical shock. The Upright - GO 2™ Posture Trainer conditions my mind to become aware of when my posture is not a perfect ninety degrees perpendicular to my floor, by vibrating when my posture begins to slouch between 75 and 80 degrees. The Upright - GO 2™ Posture Trainer works by first installing the app and following the set up instructions. Through the app, I can see my stats, rate my progress, change settings, help center and customer support. With constant vibration on my back, I realize my posture is not correct and straighten my back to a ninety degree position which is shown in the app as an animated figure. Daily use should mentally condition me to become more aware of my slouching to the point of creating proper posture.

    Get Noticeable Results Fast

    Posted .

    I have been using this for about a week and I have already noticed a difference in my posture. The instant and constant feed back is really helpful. Unlike a brace that just forces you to have better posture, the GO 2 teaches you how to have better posture and helps you to develop good habits that lead to better posture. I'm hoping that this will mean that after enough time, I will continue to have good posture, even if I'm not wearing it. The only issue is that due to my lack of flexibility, getting it on in the right place can be a little hard. My wife had to help me get it on right most of the time.

    Very handy little tracker/trainer for posture. Only complaint is that the training aspect only lasts for 1 month & then it is simply in tracking mode; wish their was more depth to the training aspect of this piece of handle gear. I def recommend getting the magnetic necklace over using the sticky pads.
