Iâ€™m absolutely fascinated by â€śfrequency technology.â€ť I canâ€™t really say that I fully understand how it worksâ€”or if it really does work (proving that itâ€™s more than just a placebo effect is darn tough, and really, Iâ€™m not one to knock the placebo effect if it helps!)â€”but ever since those darn recovery fitness bracelets came out, myÂ curiosityÂ has been piqued. So whenÂ Philip Stein emailed us with the chance to review one of its new Fruitz Classic watches with â€śwellness technologies,â€ť I said yes and decided to get fruity with it. (Thatâ€™s like getting jiggy with it, just with more nutrition.)
For almost a month,Â I wore the â€świldâ€ť Raspberry watch daily, and kind of fellÂ in love with it. (How do I know? Because I actually hugged it before sending it back to the good people at Philip Stein to grace another reviewerâ€™s life.) Super comfortable, lightweightÂ and water-resistant, this is a watch that is great to wear every day. Itâ€™s too pricey ($225â€”ouchie!) for me to risk wearing during workouts for fear of scratching itsÂ face (poor Fruitz!), but itâ€™s classy enough to wear with a nice outfit or a T-shirt, in my fashion opinion. And it comes in a ton of fruit-inspiredÂ colors including watermelon, dragon fruit and papaya. Yummy.
So what about the fruity technology,Â you ask? Well, the manufacturer says that the watch has been clinically shown to reduce stress, increase focus, improve sleep and increase overall well-being amongst wearers fromÂ natural frequencies generated by the Earth via a metal disk embedded in it. Then, through a proprietary process, the company says that the body is exposed to frequencies in the wearerâ€™s biofield, regulating energy and informing the body to relax. Whoa.
Yeah, again, Iâ€™m not fully sure what that means, but I can tell you aboutÂ my experience regularly wearing the watch. And it was a good one. Since I eat a healthy diet, work out often and manage my stress the best I can, I generally feel pretty energetic most days, so the watch didnâ€™t seem to change much in that department for me. But I did seem to sleep more deeply, and I certainly had more vivid dreams (although that might have more to do with this than anything else).
So will this turn your life upside down? Probably not. But can it help you to be a bit healthier in a super-cute way? Fruit to the heck ya!Â â€”Jenn
