I know that our customers purchase Keen for different reasons. Being the curious person that I am, I decided to look through all our testimonials and reviews to see if I could find out some of those reasons (above & beyond the “I want to take control of my hair pulling / skin picking / nail biting!).
Almost all our customer emails / fb messages / social posts are tear jerkers. And almost all have the same common themes of hope & relief that Keen was made for us to help stop hair pulling (trichotillomania), or help stop nail biting (onychophagia), or help stop skin picking (dermatillomania).
And yeah, sure there was a bit of skepticism too – if a device would really work. But all in, I saw a commitment to Keen, and more importantly a commitment to bettering oneself. And my, oh my, what progress our Keen family is making!!!
I hope YOU, dear reader-on-the-fence, will join them on the journey to awareness. After all, Keen is made for YOU by ONE OF YOU!
After every detection of the behavior, you have to press Keen’s button to acknowledge and log your behavior. Psychologists say that acknowledgement is the key to building awareness.
With the Keen app, you can track each time you do your behavior. Watch that daily tally go down as you build those awareness muscles.
Maybe you’re an active person, so you choose our silicone Sporty Keen. Fancy event coming up? No problem, our Stylish Keen has got you covered.
We’ve also designed Keen to be discreet, so when you say it’s your “activity tracker,” you’re not lying!
We highly encourage all in our Keen family to start by training just ONE gesture for positive behavior change. This is so you can get to know yourself and you behavior a little more. Because after all, its ALL about AWARENESS. But we know that sometimes we have more than one behavior we are trying to kick, which is why we’ve developed Keen to be trained for up to 4 areas at a time. This, combined with our gesture nick-naming feature allows you to have different areas for different times of day or different environments (think work vs. home on the couch).
Building awareness is nothing if you don’t learn to REPLACE the urge with something more positive. That’s why we’ve included a “replacement strategy” right on our smart bracelet. By holding the button on Keen for 3 vibrations, you’re able to do a one-minute deep breathing exercise alongside Keen’s light to calm your body and mind.
Keen is developed with kids in mind.
If your child is ready for positive behavior modification, Keen is the smart device for them to build those awareness muscles. There are two main reasons why this is true.
Firstly, our small sporty bracelet is designed with kid-sized wrists.
Secondly, Keen’s gesture detection is standalone. So, you don’t always need a Bluetooth connection to the phone app. This means mom & dad can be at work, while a child wearing Keen can be at school.
Have questions about Keen? The cofounding team personally responds to each and every one of our emails and posts on social media. Need help getting set up? We do video chats (for free!) to walk you through the finer points of Keen’s custom gesture detection, Motion Fingerprint.
Why? Because we truly care! As a person who grew up dealing with hair pulling disorder, Aneela, our cofounder & resident “trichster” never wants another person to feel the way she did growing up.
Additionally, one of our friends Karla, has been so inspired by our mission she’s joined our team as Director of Customer Success! It’s our collective mission to get you set up for success with Keen!
Oh, and, if you’re not satisfied, we have a 90-day money back guarantee.

When I received my Keen, I trained it for twirling and hair pulling on the left side of my head and for skin picking on the top of my head. I really appreciated the option to change the detection settings depending on my body position, since I usually do my habits most when I’m laying on the couch or sitting at my desk. I hardly ever take Keen off! When my Keen is charging, I still wear the strap as a reminder to help train my brain. I even wear it to sleep!
In today’s guest post, our Keen family member, Amber Bodeur, who’s been “Conquering with Keen, now shares how she found the courage - and the support - to start a support group in her hometown.
