Habits are a powerful way to engender better lifestyles, and the HabitStrap is a clever, low-tech way for people to harness them. The HabitStrap wristband lets people note the good habit they want to build or the bad habit they want to kick, and it provides a simple way for them to track their progress over time.

According to research from the University College London's Epidemiology Department, it takes an average of 66 days to either build or break a habit. The HabitStrap's system is built around that number. The strap, which looks like a nylon band that one might wear during a music festival, has 66 blank slots that wearers can pen in for each day that they stick to their commitment. Once all the slots are full, the wearer can cut the HabitStrap off and celebrate their new habit.
