Goby is not just the name of a popular fish, today it also names a trendy electric toothbrush. Our review of users voice find that Goby toothbrush is “sleek”, “well-designed”, “sophisticated”, but also “easy to use”. Many people are happy because the Goby’s company is offering not just a product but a service with regular supplies (toothbrush heads). Some of us feel more comfortable with the subscription services delivered to our door.
Goby Electric Toothbrush Review
Goby is a New York startup founded by two friends, and their most recent innovation is the Goby Electric Toothbrush. We’ll review all of its features here.
As you can appreciate in the picture below, the Goby’s exterior design is its first eye-catching feature. This is clearly modern, minimalist and clearly sleek. It’s a toothbrush that will look great in any bathroom. It adds value to the bathroom interior. And that’s something many people value today.
Goby toothbrush has a variety of colors and texture schemes. Some are matte and some are shiny: Black, glacial white, pink, golden pink, among others. The choice of color can be very personal.
Goby in action
This electric toothbrush features just an easy-to-find button with a “power-on” icon. When you turn on the Goby electric toothbrush, you”ll discover its well-designed timer. It’s a two-minute timer. In addition, every 30 seconds a beep reminds you to change the quadrant in your mouth. By pressing the same button, you could switch between sensitive and standard brushing modes.
Heads and motion
The Goby toothbrush has a rotationally oscillating brush head. Its shape is circular, very similar to that of the Oral B electric toothbrushes. Rotating heads are one of the most effective for good dental cleaning. The bristles are rounded and soft to avoid harming your gums. To maintain this level of care in brushing, it is always needed to replace the heads regularly, this brings us to the next feature of the Goby.
Goby toothbrush: More than a product, a solution
The Goby has something that sets it apart from other electric brushes. It’s more than just a new brush, Goby provides you also with premium oral care, delivered to your door. Its creators wanted to innovate beyond the product. The company offers a subscription service that saves you from finding a store or having to remember the right time to buy replacement heads. The new head of your toothbrush will simply come to your home. You can select plans with cycles of one, two or three months. What we suggest is to do the head replacement every two or three months.
The company’s effort to challenge the market, and the consumer’s routine, with a comprehensive solution for home dental care should be noted.
What we love
- Easy to use. A single button with a timer that prompts what to do.
- Long-lasting battery. Only charge it every 10 or 15 days, via USB.
- A clean and elegant look. Therefore there are many people proud to buy one and it has become so popular on Instagram. Further, it also has a very compact design.
- The subscription service. For all those who prefer that approach, Goby wanted to make their lives easier.
- Some users say the sound of the Goby toothbrush is a bit loud.
- If you’re looking for an electric toothbrush with different types of heads, well, Goby electric toothbrush is simple, it only has one type: the circular rotating oscillating.
In Shoppersmash we did a careful review of the best electric toothbrushes. This review of the Goby toothbrush shows that it’s an excellent alternative to the best-known brands. It is definitely a brush that bets on design and simplicity. The product is easy to use, and it is also simple to maintain.
Our pick in the last review was the Oral B Precision Black 7000. Both brushes are in a similar price range for both unit and replacement heads. Oral B has a wide variety of heads that can then be better adapted to the special needs of the buyer. In addition, the replacements are very easy to find on the web or in a nearby shop. Goby gives the convenience of home door service, but it is still growing its market and its number of subscribers.
Is the Goby electric tootbrush worth buying? If you still entrust your dental care to a manual toothbrush, then the Goby is a good choice for testing the benefits of an electric toothbrush. Moreover, if you are looking for a product that works well but also looks good on your bathroom countertop, then you will surely be tempted by the design of toothbrushes like the Goby or its major competitor: the Quip. In fact, we’re living the era of Hipster toothbrushes.
