Had high expectations for this, and was not impressed. Get the SmartGuide instead!
on December 6, 2015
I have always been an Oral-B fan. I have their battery powered toothbrush which I love. I thought it was time to get a rechargeable one. I went with this because I thought the app would help me maintain better oral health. The app is just okay.
There are different oral "journeys" you can select that helps you brush accordingly. I chose gum health because I have sensitive teeth. I really like the sensitive mode on the brush. However, you can never tell which brush mode you're in unless you paired it with the app.
One very frustrating thing is that you cannot change brush modes without changing the "journey." This was annoying because I wanted to try all 5 modes to test it out. However, you do not know which mode you're in and to try different modes you have to select different journeys.
Overall, I think the mechanic of the toothbrush itself is fine and is a great electronic toothbrush. The app is not helpful and not knowing which mode you're in is very disappointing. I wish I would have gotten the Oral-B 5000 with the SmartGuide instead of the Bluetooth because the SmartGuide display icons that shows you which mode you're in.
I will update this review if necessary.
