    I’ve been looking into this device for a while now. Thanks for the informative review!

Unfortunately in the US it’s been pulled from the shelves, but if you can find it in SA or elsewhere it’s the best thing on the market. Don’t get one if you’re allergic to nickle, since it has nickle-steel touching your skin, but for the vast majority of people it’s a fantastic device.
