So after receiving my Slendertone to review back at the end of January, I’ve now completed my 4 week review of it.
Overall, the product is well made and looks the part. The battery has only needed to be charged a couple of times over this 4 week period, and considering almost daily use, that’s fairly impressive. Its also incredibly easy to use, and very discreet – I got into the habit of using it front of the TV at night, and it didn’t seem to disturb anyone else in the room.
The downsides are few and far between. Something fairly simple that is missing is to have the unit pick up the settings from the previous use. I found the ramping up of the intensity of the start of each session slightly uncomfortable – I would have much preferred it to remember the previous intensity from last use.
But whilst having a well made and relatively thought through product, its the results that are probably of most interest to people. Whilst I feel I’ve got a firmer stomach from the constant use of it, my waist (unfortunately) hasn’t reduced in size. Having said that, I’m quite impressed by the results, and certainly my stomach feels far stronger that it has done previously, and for that I really need to give the Slendertone credit.
I think to summarise, I’m planning to carry on using mine even after the end of the review, which I think speaks volumes. I think I did have greater hopes for the Slendertone, but to be fair to the product, these were probably unrealistic ideas and aims. I’m happy (possibly delighted) with the progress made over the past 4 weeks, and it’ll be interesting to see what further progress can be made moving forward.
