Weight-loss strugglers and fast-fast lovers, the solution to all your problem could be lying at nifty, little gadget designed to be worn as a bracelet. The bracelet that is being sold on Amazon promises to help you sort your life out by giving you a 350-volt electric shock as a reminder that you have had, enough!

According to the manufacturer, "Pavlok allows you to speak your reptile brain's language by adding an unpleasant element (a safe and harmless 'zap' of electricity on your wrist) to what you have been taught to love (your nasty lingering habit), quickly conditioning your mind to associate an 'unpleasant' feeling with your bad habit... and stopping it all together."

Priced at $199 (£158), 13,891.89 approx in Indian Rupee, Pavlok has 150 shocks per charge.

Speaking to ABC News, the inventor of the device said, "It feels like if you were to touch a doorknob after rubbing your socks on the carpet."

"There's a real power in using a little bit of pain to help you break your bad habits’’ he added.

Reviews about this weight-loss magic device however, remains fairly mixed.

One customer writing that the bracelet helped him\her change their bad habits wrote, "I'm glad I bought it, so far I believe it is working. It's not going to cure a lifelong issue in a few days so you have to stick to their plan and really work on it."

 "Wrist band is a little awkward but it does allow for the contacts to be positioned closely to your skin for the best results. I've only used the button on the device to administer the shock’’ another writes.
