not as great as I thought it would be.

  • By Jackie from Centerville UT USA on Thursday, March 24, 2016
  • Review: I have been told that it would take my air sickness way. Well I told every one I would be the bigest test it would get. I get air sick as soon as the plain leave the runway. I am not saying that reliefband dose not work it just did not work for me. I feel bad to have to say this but I am just on with a really big inter ear problem. I was in hopes I had found something that would stop the air sickness. Sorry but it just did not work for me.

Works, but.....

  • By T210 Driver from Flagstaff, AZ on Friday, July 25, 2014
  • Pros: works
  • Cons: throw-away after 100 hours of use
  • Review: [This review was written for a previous generation ReliefBand model.]  This product works but the manufacturer has switched to non-replaceable batteries; after 130 hours (power 3) it is now landfill. So you be the judge at approximately $1.25 each hour.

    I have purchased another but keep it locked in a pelican case and use it after observed pilot/passenger discomfort rather than as a preventative.

  • By Laura from Arcadia CA USA on Thursday, June 11, 2015
  • Review: I purchased this product for a long airplane trip to London. Well, it worked a little. After about the 10th hour I had the wrist meter all the way to 4 and during the last hour, I had it all the way up to five and I had to run to the restroom because I felt like vomiting. Fortunately, I didn't and returned back to my seat and just felt nauseous and sick. So, I would say that it really didn't work.

Think again

  • By A Customer from Topeka KS USA on Tuesday, January 27, 2009
  • Pros: I didn't get seasick
  • Cons: Expensive, more annoying than the patch & can't prove it worked
  • Review: [This review was written for a previous generation ReliefBand model.]  I recommend the transderm patch over the relief band. I crossed the Drake and most people were using the patch. And it worked. I was the only one that I was aware of that even brought a relief band. The patch is proven to work for most. Why spend the extra money on the relief band unless you have tried the patch and it didn't work for you.

caveat emptor

  • By Karin from Mansfield OH on Monday, June 29, 2009
  • Review: [This review was written for a previous generation ReliefBand model.]  Be very careful - this item comes with an inflexible 10 day return policy. It didn't work for me and now I have a $129. clunky wrist bauble.

Did not work for my wife

  • By Phil from Seattle WA USA on Monday, August 17, 2009
  • Pros: None in this case
  • Cons: Didn't work
  • Review: [This review was written for a previous generation ReliefBand model.]  In fairness, I have heard of other people who have used this product and found it effective... but it definitely did nothing for my wife. We were (still are) on a ship in the Bering Sea, and last week we headed out of Dutch Harbor Alaska in some pretty awful seas (bad enough that I felt queasy, and I'm never seasick). We had high hopes for the ReliefBand, but it failed to prevent her from being as seasick as she usually is in such conditions, and she spent a couple of miserable days before she recovered.
