I was pleased the unit was fully charged and could be used instantly. Looks to be well designed and light to carry. Very long chords, so it can be either carried in the pocket or set off to the side. The pads looked very durable and easy to peel off and apply.
Initially the interface was bit challenging to switch between "massage types". Once you understand the principles of switching between all the settings, your all set. I do appreciate the ability to adjust the length of time, but also to dial up or dial down the intensity. It forces you to dial down the intensity to zero, before you can swap the different types.
There is good documentation that explains the variable modes.In future models, I would like to see a setting where you can customize the type of massage. All in all, between the many defaults, you'll certainly find something that is great for you.
The box does come with an extra pair of pads. I can't say the durability of length of time, but they seem to be of good quality. I do also like the fact it charges by a USB power source versus buying continuous batteries. I have used it 4 or 5 times throughout the day and still have half a battery to use. I could see it nice to setup before sleep to help ease getting to sleep and auto-shut off.
I was able to use this during a meeting and was able to sit for the 1.5 hours with the device. Without the device I'd get so uncomfortable, I'd have to move around, getup and stretch, plus be distracted by being uncomfortable, it'd be challenging to focus and be present.
