This toothbrush taught me that I brush through my teeth and how to fix it

I admit it: I’ve never owned an electric toothbrush until now. I’ve been brushing my teeth with a standard plastic toothbrush for years and it worked…or at least I did thought it was. Until I tried Colgate Hum, a compact, brightly colored electric toothbrush that tracks your brushing habits and helps you get the most out of your brushings.

Connecting to the Colgate app, this smart toothbrush tracks your brushing habits and gives you helpful tips such as, “Get your brush 45 degrees” or “You’re brushing too slowly!” and will adjust accordingly as you do. I soon learned that if I wasn’t asked, my brushing session would be a lot shorter than the two-minute timeline the Hum takes me through. And even if I don’t feel like taking my phone to the bathroom to follow the app, the toothbrush vibrates every 30 seconds, letting me know it’s time to switch sections. It also vibrates three times when you reach the two-minute mark, letting you know when to stop. The best part? You get “smile points” every time you brush, and 100 points equals $1 for replacement brush heads and toothpaste. It feels like free money to me, since I’m going to brush my teeth at least twice a day anyway. It’s a win win!

As a novice to electric toothbrushes, I thought this thing would be heavier! It’s electric, after all, but it’s very lightweight, and it seems like it’s called buzz for a reason – the quiet, soft buzz it makes as you brush isn’t harsh or distracting at all. The lightness and compactness of this toothbrush makes it easy to travel with, and it comes with a really cute travel pouch so you don’t have to worry about storing it unprotected.

I didn’t even think that Bluetooth technology helps with anything like brushing my teeth, but the Colgate Hum and the Colgate app have made my brushing sessions longer, better and even a little more fun? Brushing my teeth is now a bit of a game, and I’m all for adding a little more fun to my daily activities.
