Carrion, I get what you're saying, but I bought a top quality electric one (OralB) from evilbay last year for less than thirty quid.....Why anyone would pay over eighty bucks beats me.
And why you'd need one to connect to a computer I'll never know.


All I can venture to guess is a lot of younger people feel the need to be "connected" in every aspect of life, obviously not for me or you...

My wife has been on and on lately about "fit bits" or some such...I guess we all get dragged in eventually...

My fitbit is hanging up on a hook on my desk......Where it will stay for eternity.
Hated it from day one, never liked plastic watch straps, and I don't need a watch to tell me when I've been out walking.
I'll stick to my Omega or one of my rolex's

Use bamboo biodegradable toothbrushes instead of this.
We can't agree on everything.

This actually has me shopping for a new toothbrush, looked up Oral B and Philips gear, plus I dove into the bamboo toothbrush world for 5 minutes. It's a shame that those aren't sold more widely...Maybe I should get into manufacturing: my property back half (.7 acre) is an overgrown, imported Bamboo forest. My old neighbor was Korean and planted a few small bamboo sprouts 60 years ago...very invasive and relatively quick growing....these could and should be used for as many uses as possible, renewable resources that are this easily renewable are pretty rare overall.

As far as my toothbrush preference, I found an Oral B kit with two units (mr. and mrs.) and let me tell you...they are STILL very expensive. Of course, you can downgrade a bit and get the simple "vibrate" kind, which seems to be one of the big indicators in price...whether it oscillates and vibrates, different uv lights to kill bacteria, battery life....

Lots of choices, and I haven't even checked FT yet.

You really want Gates or Bezos snooping in on your oral care?
Peace be with you ...

Ha, I've actually expected for the vaping community to be open minded and tech savvy. These 2 pages of pointless messages is just a good example of unreasonably toxic behavior. My personal reasons for the item selection is none of your business. I've never asked to judge my purchase, have I?

For anyone who's truly interested, the app allows to perform a fine tuning of the toothbrush behavior which is just not possible to achieve with a single button the brush have.
