UPRIGHT GO 2 Review

November 4, 2019

This post is sponsored by UPRIGHT. All thoughts and opinions are my own!

When I started working from home, my posture became terrible. I was constantly slouching and finding myself hunched over my laptop. If I happened to realize it, I’d straighten up only to be back in the same position a few minutes later. Pretty soon, I noticed my posture was awful even while walking! I’d pass by a mirror and think, is that really how I stand? It was so frustrating and my back was always killing me!

So when I saw the UPRIGHT GO 2 online, I couldn’t wait to test it out! UPRIGHT is a posture trainer and works by training your back and core muscles to sit and stand upright by gently vibrating as a reminder. Keep reading to see how it works!

How THE UPRIGHT GO 2 works

1. Download the free app and connect.

Available for both iOS and Android, the UPRIGHT GO app is where you’ll connect your phone to the UPRIGHT device via Bluetooth. In the app, you’ll be able to customize the settings and see your progress. The app is really well done and extremely user-friendly!

Apple Store | Google Play

2. Place it on your back.

Once your phone and the UPRIGHT GO 2 are connected, simply place it on your back in between your shoulder blades. It comes with reusable, hypoallergenic adhesives that won’t leave marks on your skin.

3. Begin improving your posture!

Every time you open the app, the very first thing you’ll do is set your correct posture. The device then remembers your upright position! How cool is that?! From there, you’ll choose between two different modes – training and tracking. Training mode is where the device will vibrate if you slouch whereas tracking mode simply tracks your posture without vibrating.

In the app, you can also set your motion range between 1 and 6. 1 is a narrow range which means it’ll vibrate with just the slightest slouch. 6 is a wide range which means you’ll have to really be slouching before it reminds you. You can also set the delay time in seconds. Adding seconds will delay the vibration, giving you more time to get upright. The sensitivity of the vibration can also be adjusted.

I’ve been using it for about two weeks now and I honestly love it! It’s made me so much more mindful about the way I’m sitting and standing and I love that I can count on it to keep my posture in check. I can’t think of anything else out there that’d work this well. It’s like having a little personal trainer reminding you to straighten your back all day!

I also love how tiny it is. The UPRIGHT GO 2 is so small and discreet that I can easily wear it under my clothes without it being noticeable. It comes in a nice case so that you don’t misplace it, extra adhesives, and a charging cable (it has a whopping 30 hours of battery life too!)

The UPRIGHT GO 2 now has a permanent spot on my desk so every time I sit down to write or edit photos, I’ll put it on and stay upright!
