Rejoice - an update is upon us!
Yesterday we released the updated version of the new Pavlok 3 app. It brings the missing features from the old Pavlok 2 app and provides you with full functionality, meaning that there is no reason to use the Pavlok 2 app any longer.
If you are still using the Pavlok 2 app (denoted by an icon with a yellow lightning bolt on black background) it’s time to upgrade! Delete the Pavlok 2 app, and download the Pavlok 3 app (denoted by an icon with a purple background). You can download the P3 app at pavlok.com/apps.
We'll have more to announce soon, but for now let's take a look what this latest update has brought us:
Here's how to access everything
First make sure you've downloaded and updated the Pavlok 3 app from the App/Play store. Grab it at https://pavlok.com/apps
Next, once you've logged in, click on your avatar image on the top left. This should open the sidebar menu.
Apps & Integrationsfrom the sidebar menu.
It looks something like this:
Brand New Apps & Integrations!
Find my phone
You can now locate your phone through your Pavlok! Press a button on your Pavlok device and your phone will start ringing, allowing you to find it. Your Pavlok will even vibrate with increased intensity as you get closer to your phone! This also works the other way around - you can use the Find my phone app to locate your misplaced Pavlok device through your smartphone. The Pavlok will beep and vibrate until you find it.
A built-in stopwatch that can be started and stopped through your Pavlok device. It also allows you to set the device to beep/vibrate/zap on exact time periods.

General bug fixes and improvements
Hooray for less bugs and more stability!

If your app didn’t update automatically, go to Google Play Store or Apple App Store, search for the Pavlok 3 app, and then update it manually.
Hope you like this update as we continue to work to bring you even more features in the future!
6.2 New Triggers, Performance Improvements and Morse!
Release date: 11-Aug-2021
Watch the video demo
(the version number is off in the video -- it should be 6.2.0 as of 6/17/2020)
Many of our latest features are still being integrated into the app. Application of many of these settings will require connecting your device to the Web Tool in order to enable.
- Pre-configured Countdown Timer and Stop WatchStart/cancel can be applied to any trigger/button. Useful for having a pre-set tea steep time and being reminded exactly when that time has elapsed, or to time your intervals while running.
- New LED patterns:Turning a feature on or off gives an LED swipe to red or green. Starting or stopping a feature does an in & out lightshow with a red or green LED. Errors generate a triple red flash.
- Hand Detect can have LED feedback disabled and be “hidden”.
- Silent Jumping Jacks Option
- Manual Do Not Disturb (mDND)Mode can be turned on or off. This suppresses almost all notifications including alarms. Button presses will always give a response of some form, but all beeps are mapped to LED flashes instead.
- Auto Do Not Disturb (aDND):can define times when auto-DND comes on automatically. This is a form of “do not disturb” but where alarms still occur.
- Morse code stimulusin stimulus language for StimSend (this is relevant for Zapier integrations)
- Default Morse Code Configuration.This includes the type of stimulus, the level of the stimulus, and the speed of the Morse code (set in Words Per Minute).
- Morse Code Time action. Can be applied to any trigger event/button. A natural pairing for the hourly chime.
- Hand Detect is now disabled during manual sleep
- Short press extended from 500ms max to allow up to 700ms timing
- Alarms fire if time change will jump past next alarm
- Jumping Jacks sensitivity increased Most actions will count, not just traditional arm swings.
- Fixed bug where “bad clock” flash was not shown except when on the charger.
- Automatic Daylight savings time changes.
- Power on improvements - avoid units seemingly bricking if allowed to discharge very low by being on a shelf for 6 months say.
How to Install
- From a desktop or laptop go to https://webtool.pavlok.com/ and press connect
- A prompt will appear, click pair.
- Once your device is paired, press load to update to the latest firmware.

Watch a demo of the new features and a guided walkthrough of how to install.
It's here! The first big update for Pavlok 3. Firmware is the software that runs directly on the physical device -- not the app, etc. It improves the functionality of the physical product.
Here's what's new
PAVLOK 3 NEW FIRMWARE (v 6.0.115) RELEASE NOTES
Battery is now up to 40% longer: We added some really cool enhancements and optimizations that significantly increase battery life depending on actual use (for some users, this could add days of battery life).
Jumping Jacks Silence: Don't want to hear the whirrr sound during your jumping jacks? Long press the middle button while the alarm is going off, and the sound will be silenced. (You still have to do the jumping jacks!)
Hand Detect Snooze: Allow “snoozing” hand detect for 30 minutes by quick pressing the middle button within 5s of hand detect being triggered (i.e. when green LED is lit).
Candle Mode: Light up the LEDs to add a bit of light to your life. . This feature can be enabled by holding down the top button. It extinguishes itself after 30s. It's quite romantic if I do say so myself.
Double Tap Battery Life: Double-tap the face of the Pavlok 3 to see your battery life.
Breathing Charge: While charging your Pavlok, charging LED breathes and pulses.
Reduced minimum time for a “long-press” from 2.5s to 1.5s.
Fixed a minor issue where the Save to Button wouldn't save the strength of the stimulus to your device.
How to Install
Install this by going to the Pavlok 3 app. You should see a popup. If not, click on the Settings icon in the top right of the App (inside the Remote). You'll see an option to upgrade the firmware on that screen.
