    My dentist was genuinely impressed with how clean my teeth were

    I have some gripes about this product, in particular how the software and sensors aren't perfect at knowing which part of your mouth it is cleaning. However, I noticed early on that my teeth felt cleaner than ever before, and then my dentist remarked at how there was barely any plaque during a routine cleaning. I then told her that I had been using this toothbrush, and she was enthusiastic that she had to get it too. I suspect what plaque had developed was already there when I got this toothbrush, and my next cleaning will be even better. I also don't love using the app all the time, but a lifetime of healthy teeth is clearly worth the tradeoff.

    Needs a 2 minute timer

    Just opened the brush and tried it out. My old brush would turn off after 2 minutes, so far that’s the only feature I miss.

    Great Idea - Not great execution

    By far, the best part of this product is the accompanying app for your phone/tablet. The ability to track your brushing habits and get real time feedback on how you're brushing is an ingenious idea. I imagine the games on the app would be a great way to get young children more interested in brushing their teeth - treating it less like a chore and more like a fun activity. That being said, I think the actual toothbrush was lacking. The overall construction seemed flimsy, with the vibration stronger in the handle than it was at the brush head. The base of the brush was much larger than similar products on the market. Although I am a huge fan of the app, I'm going to be switching back to my cheaper sonicare brand electric toothbrush, which just does a much better job of cleaning my teeth.

    i was skeptical at first... but it grew on me

    i have had the colgate smart toothbrush for a few weeks now. when i got it i thought it felt a little cheap and wasnt impressed with how the brush was working on my teeth. i finally downloaded the app and was using the "smart" functions. it showed me areas i wasnt getting well and even has an option that will walk you through the brushing the entire mouth. i really liked that part i would love to get my son using it also. the app has games that will help a child or teen by timing them and showing them exactly where to brush. i do not run into any issues using the app (never takes too long to load or boots me out ). i do wish the bristles were shaped a little different so i can access some of my teeth a little easier but it is a great tooth brush.

    Great time to be alive

    Wow, this toothbrush is amazing! From the first day I used it I have felt that my teeth brushing routine has hit a all time high, the app has kept me in informed about my brushing and I really enjoy seeing where I can improve and how’s my brushing going. I have very few cons for this Colgate connect. I wish it had a tongue brush behind the bristles and also that the the bristle part is larger other than that it’s perfect. Do you yourself a favor and get this tooth brush app combo you will not regret it.

    Nice Toothbrush

    The toothbrush has a nice sleek design with a compact head. Being use to a larger brush head it took a little getting used to the compact design. Nothing wrong just a preference. The head come off easily for cleaning, which is nice.
    The app was easy to get set up and connect to the tooth brush. It has cool tools to view 3D brushing to show how well brushing coverage. Thought the timer seemed short. I’m used to brushing longer. It was weird reviewing the brushing results the first time. As an adult, it felt like I was a kid with my parents watching over my shoulder to see how well I was doing. Now that I’ve used it a few times, the feedback on brushing coverage is nice.
    I can see how this would be great with kids. It would give positive feedback on how well they are doing.
    Overall, it’s a nice toothbrush the gives you feedback on how well your brushing.

    Great innovative toothbrush ! app works well

    As a tech lover, I bought this innovative toothbrush right after its launch in Apple stores. I find the idea amazing, it really helped me to realize how poorly I used to brush my teeth. Now I can monitor the quality of my brushings even without having my phone with me as it synchronizes the infos offline. I think I'll buy one for my little cousins, because the real time games available on the smartphone while brushing the teeth could really motivate them to brush more regularly & more properly. With the different brush heads you just need to have one toothbrush for all the kids which makes it even more affordable.

    useful for the whole family

    I had a compliance issues with my children (they didn't want to brush their teeth regularly) and this wonderful toothbrush has changed our life. Kids are now eager to brush their teeth because they play to fun games on the family ipad while brushing. With the additional brush heads, I can also monitor my own dental hygien and my hygienist is very happy. This is really a great product ! Highly recommand it

    Innovative, Room for Improvement

    I’ve had the toothbrush/app for 2 weeks. All in all I like it. The toothbrush keep a charge when traveling for a long weekend (no need to pack the base). My brushing regime has definitely become better using the “Coach”. I find the app sometimes fails to recognize the time/effort you’ve spent on a certain zone of your mouth. The one thing I found lacking is the ability to either brush “offline” and/or edit recording brushing sessions. Right now (2/17/18), a 30 second, quick brush, screws up the stastics the app keeps. So 4 stars for now. A little refinement and 5 stars could come

    Good start - could use some improvements

    I gave it 4 stars just because it made me conscience of my actual brushing habits and I did improve them. Here is the list for constructive criticism:
    1) I have a pattern of brushing that I have used all my life. It would be nice to be able to configure the app based on that (Lower left outside, LL top, LL inside, etc.) The coach has you flipping all over in an unnatural pattern which has you concentrating on where you need to be instead of effective brushing.
    2) There are 4 timed intervals for the four quadrants of your mouth but I know of no one that brushes half of their front teeth with their back teeth. We all brush our front teeth separately from the back, so there needs to be 6 intervals, not 4.
    3) I could never get it to register that I was brushing my lower left quadrant. The brush icon disappeared and the clock kept ticking.
    4) it appears to require up and down brushing. I thought the movement of the brush head would accomplish that. The coach never seemed happy with my up & down brushing.
    5) The power button is right where you put your thumb to hold the brush. Better if relocated.
    I had no problems with bluetooth and brushing data transferring to my phone. It was a personal challenge to get 100% but having done that, I don't think I did as good a job as I could have if I had been able to do it with my own configuration and the aid of the coach.

    Not a great toothbrush

    I don't understand what the "feedback" means after I brush. Since I am missing spots, I'm not sure where they are so correcting is hit and miss. The brush is too small. Two minutes isn't really enough to be thorough on all your teeth, it should be programmable to go 2.5 or 3 minutes so that I can brush every area without having to hurry.

    Poorly executed item- returned

    This was a poor excuse for a smart electric tooth brush I purchased it out of trust for Apple products- DO NOT BE FOOLED. The item does not function properly-it does not detect which teeth are being brushed leaving a useless score. The brush is ineffective in cleaning teeth. The app is not at all helpful and is in fact misleading. Do not recommend. I returned the item

    Interesting data, but not a great toothbrush

    The data and visualizations produced by the toothbrush are interesting to understand how your toothbrushing regime could be improved. But the electric toothbrush itself is pretty lackluster, and nowhere near as thorough at cleaning as my Sonicare.

    Great device with incredible user feedback

    I've been using this product since it launched at the Apple Store and it has had a huge impact on they way I brush my teeth. I had some issues early on with the app crashing but the latest version has been very solid. I love the baseline analysis the app offers to evaluate current brushing. I thought I was doing a pretty good job but the feedback from the app indicated otherwise. I started using the Coach+ feature of the app to walk through the 16 zones and spending the right amount of time in each zone. That immediate feedback is proving to be key to nudging me to do a better job each time and the data that it presents wants me to get my numbers up and keep them up the same way the Activity rings on my Apple Watch nudge me to do the right thing. The real time feedback during brushing is what makes this an amazing tool for me.

    Underwhelming

    The brushing felt uncomfortable compared to my previous brush. The app seemed nice at first but the "tracking" was very hard to interact with. I would be brushing my teeth in the EXACT way that the app shows me to do and it wouldn't be counting the brushing on my "coverage" score. I would strain to follow the instructions perfectly and end up with a 79%. The game mode (for a child) seemed just as troublesome with control as it felt like trying to perform surgery with a Wii remote.

    Compared to a basic vibrating brush, I wouldn't say this earned the extra $50 it costs.

    Very Good and can be better!

    I have learned a lot how to improve my brushing in the two weeks that I have owned The Colgate Smart Toothbrush. It really is amazing!

    However, I hope that E1 means "Experimental 1" since it needs a second generation:

    1. The interface between the brush and phone is confusing and not easy to manage. It needs a better instruction manual and perhaps better bluetooth connectivity

    2. When it gets wet, the base slides through my hands and inadvertently turns the brush off, thus screwing up the recording of the session. It needs a very slim grip below the off/on button

    I haven't owned it long enough to see the problems that others are reporting. Hopefully, they won't happen to me.

    Great Idea, Marginal Implementation

    I have been using the Colgate E1 for just over a month. If I brush using "coach mode" things work pretty well, but that means you have to have your iPhone with you and initiate brushing from the iPhone. If you follow the coach instructions exactly the results are good and the system tracks the info properly. If you brush in disconnected mode and initiate brushing from the E1, the results are poor at best. The sensors in the toothbrush get confused easily and don't recognize where you are brushing and for how long in each area. This leads to inaccurate results. The price paid compared to overall performance lead me to limit my recommends for this product. Too expensive for what you get.
