Sensate 2 Review

In the past few months, I have become increasingly interested in trying out the Sensate for downregulation and calming of the nervous system.

In some cases, no matter how much you meditate, breathe, etc., the nervous system may still be upregulated and stress creeps back in almost immediately.

As full disclosure, I purchased Sensate 2 with my own funds and this is not a paid review. It was my desire to share my experience, the advantages and disadvantages of this wellness device.

What is the Sensate 2?

Sensate 2 is a wearable device that is designed to aid in reducing stress and promoting relaxation.

It works by stimulating the vagus nerve through sound and vibration, which in turn activates the parasympathetic nervous system, leading to a state of calmness and relaxation. The device is small and lightweight, making it easy to wear throughout the day.

Users have reported positive effects from using Sensate 2, such as feeling more relaxed and centered, experiencing reduced anxiety and stress levels, and improved sleep quality. The device is also said to be easy to use, with a simple and intuitive interface for controlling the settings and features.

One potential downside of Sensate 2 is its price, which may be considered expensive by some users. Additionally, the device may not be suitable for everyone, particularly those with certain medical conditions or who are sensitive to sound or vibration.

Perhaps the Sensate 2 could be used with psychedelic therapy to keep people in their bodies?

My Experience

You can really dial up the vibration on the Sensate 2 a lot. However, depending on what you’re doing, it can be quite overwhelming, so sometimes it makes sense to turn it down a lot for a gentler approach. You can dial it all the way down to zero and it will stop vibrating completely.

It commands my attention when I close my eyes. It’s like drawing my attention to my heart, chest, or fourth energy center. During sessions, I pay less attention to other parts of my body.

Sensate 2 helps me feel grounded and relaxed before going to sleep, which is very interesting to me.

There is a very limited variety of music to choose from that is repetitive and boring to me. It may be fine for 10 minutes, but I prefer a progression so that it remains interesting and takes me on a journey.

There are four categories of music in the Sensate app, including Nature (2), Space & Time (4), Sacred Spaces (4) and Breathe (3). A grand total of 13 tracks.

It is possible to stop the audio session, but you cannot skip around the music track.

As a result of turning off the audio in the Sensate app and doing my own breathwork, it seemed quite effective. Among the meditation apps I use regularly are:

  1. Open / Get a Free Month – Olivia and Lihi offer excellent classes in restorative yoga, breathwork, meditation, and soundbaths.
  2. Otherspace – With “Calm the Chaos”, “Calming and Relaxing”, or “Conscious to Subconscious”, which are currently free in the app, I regularly calm down my nervous system.
  3. Journeyspace / $6 per month / Solo Membership / East Forest’s progressive journey music really appeals to me.
    • East Forest has other music available on Spotify.

Turned off the audio and meditated. I have had effective results with this combination. It is not in sync with the music, but keeps your heart focused on what you’re listening to.

While listening to other audio and reducing the audio in the Sensate app simultaneously, there was a weird blast of audio volume before it turned off. To determine whether this is a regular occurrence or just a one-off, I’ll need to experiment more.

Even when you use speech-to-text on the Pixel 7 Pro, the audio continues to play. However, this may not be true for all Android or iOS devices

The Sensate 2 app continues to play over the phone speaker when I turn off my Bluetooth headphones. It’s just an observation I’ve made.

What is all included with the Sensate 2?

  • Sensate device
  • Lanyard
  • Carry pouch
  • Charge cable
  • Sensate app (free to download and use)
  • Available for download on App Store or Google Play.

Return policy

When considering purchasing the Sensate 2 device, it is important to weigh the options of where to buy from. While buying directly from the manufacturer offers a 40-day return policy, it may be unclear whether return postage is covered, which could result in an additional cost for the consumer.

On the other hand, Amazon offers free returns, making it a wise choice for those who may need to return the device for any reason. Not only does this offer a risk-free purchase experience, but it also provides peace of mind for the consumer knowing that they can easily return the product if it does not meet their expectations.

Furthermore, Amazon’s customer service is known for its reliability and efficiency, making the returns process a hassle-free experience. This may not necessarily be the case when returning directly to the manufacturer, where communication and response time could be a concern.

In summary, buying the Sensate 2 device from Amazon offers several benefits such as free returns, reliable customer service, and a risk-free purchase experience. While buying directly from the manufacturer may offer a longer return policy, the uncertainty of return postage coverage could be a potential drawback.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, Sensate 2 is an innovative wearable device that offers a non-invasive and drug-free solution for managing stress and promoting relaxation. With its unique approach to stimulating the vagus nerve through sound and vibration, Sensate 2 has shown promising results in helping individuals achieve a state of calmness and reduce anxiety levels.

While the device has received positive feedback from users, it is important to note that more research is needed to fully understand its potential benefits and limitations. Future studies could help determine the effectiveness of Sensate 2 in calming the nervous system and aiding in the treatment of various medical conditions.

Overall, Sensate 2 offers a promising tool for those seeking a natural and non-invasive way to manage stress and improve their well-being. As the field of alternative medicine continues to grow and evolve, it will be interesting to see how devices like Sensate 2 can help individuals take control of their health and wellness in new and exciting ways.

I find it difficult to recommend the Sensate 2, which I had purchased and later returned because it didn’t appeal to me. Although I was drawn to the concept of the device, I couldn’t incorporate it into my daily routine. Although I would have liked to keep it, the high price tag of $300 made it difficult to justify the purchase. Ultimately, I don’t recommend the Sensate 2 because the music it offers is underwhelming and limited.
