Product Review: Upright Go 2 Posture Corrector

Upright Go

An effective device for slouch prevention 

Although we espouse the benefits of having a healthy posture, many of us struggle to maintain one. Enter the Upright Go 2, a device that promises to amend your posture in as little as two weeks. 

Smaller than the original Upright Go, the new Go 2 is a rectangular wearable stuck to your back using double-sided adhesive strips, and can be worn attached to a necklace that is magnetically fastened. The setup process was simple–I connected my Go 2 to its accompanying app via Bluetooth, and answered questions about my body and posture to receive a personalized training plan. 

The app then asks you to set your posture, which helps the device detect when you are slouching and gently vibrate in response. There are two modes within the app: Training and Tracking. In Training sessions, the Go 2 expects you to hold the perfect posture for a set amount of time and increases the number of minutes daily, vibrating when you slouch. Afterward, you may switch to Tracking. Without vibrating, this mode quietly tracks your posture for the rest of the day for you to review. 

I found the Go 2’s Training mode to be immensely helpful in maintaining a straight posture. Its vibrations were unobtrusive, even to the people sitting next to me. The necklace’s design was also inconspicuous, and the adhesive strips stayed on without trouble, yet could be removed easily. As an added convenience, the posture trainer did not need to be charged daily. 

However, the user manual emphasises that the Go 2 should be used in a cool indoor environment. This suggests that for slouchers who work in outdoor conditions or tend to sweat a lot, the Go 2 may not be the best posture-correction alternative. 

As a chronic sloucher, I was pleasantly surprised by how my posture improved as I wore the device over two weeks. Overall, slouchers and people who often work sitting down may highly benefit from giving the Go 2 a go. –BC
