Embr Wave delivers thermal relief on demand. Developed by MIT scientists At the press of a button, Embr Wave helps you feel colder or warmer so you can be more comfortable.

Whenever you start feeling too warm or cold, you can activate Embr Wave for an instant shot of thermal relief.

By directly cooling or warming the temperature-sensitive skin on your wrist, it immediately recreates the chill of an ice cube on your skin in the summer or the warmth of your hands by the fireplace in the winter.

It fits comfortably around any wrist size, lasts 2-3 days per charge, and pairs with the Embr Wave mobile app for enhanced thermal visualization and control.

Technology you can trust.

  • Founded at MIT, and funded by Bose Ventures
  • Supported by over 2,200 backers on Kickstarter
  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • 1-year limited warranty

Experience thermal comfort on demand. Developed by MIT scientists, Embr Wave lets you cool down when you’re too hot or warm up when you’re too cold. Embr Wave is powered by patent-pending technology that uses cutting-edge thermoelectrics and precisely engineered algorithms to produce maximally effective temperature waves. It fits comfortably around any wrist size, lasts 2-3 days per charge, and pairs with the Embr Wave mobile app for enhanced thermal visualization and control.

There is a higher density of temperature-sensitive nerve endings on the inside of your wrist than on your fingertips. That’s what makes it such a perfect spot. It works to the same effect of putting an ice cube or a heat pack on your wrist—same relaxing relief instantly, at any time.

Physiology of Comfort

Cold and warm things make you feel colder or warmer

Fact: how hot or cold you feel has far more to do with local temperature sensations than your core body temperature. That’s why running your wrists under cold water on a hot day feels so refreshingly chill, and why cupping your hands around a warm mug of tea on a cold day gives you a comforting feeling of warmth.

Relief at Your Fingertips

Press to activate waves

Whenever you start feeling too hot or too cold, just press and hold the Wave’s Light Bar to activate comforting waves of heating or cooling. By cooling or warming the temperature-sensitive skin on your wrist, Embr Wave helps you feel colder or warmer in minutes.

The science of the Wrist

One of the central comfort zones

There is a higher density of temperature-sensitive nerve endings on the inside of your wrist than on your fingertips. That’s what makes it such a perfect spot. It works to the same effect of putting an ice cube or a heat pack on your wrist—same relaxing relief instantly, at any time.

Intelligent Engineering

Developed by MIT scientists

Embr Wave is powered by patent-pending technology that uses cutting-edge thermoelectrics and precisely engineered algorithms to produce maximally effective warming and cooling sensations.

Use Extended Mode for 30minutes of periodic cooling or warming — designed for more sustained comfort.

Use Quick Mode for 3 minutes of cooling or 5 minutes of warming — designed for when you need a quick burst of relief.


Research

University of California, Berkeley

With funding from the National Science Foundation, Embr Labs collaborated with Dr Hui Zhang to quantify the effects of the Embr Wave on overall comfort. In her original research, Dr Zhang demonstrated that localized heating and cooling sensations can improve overall thermal comfort in thermally uncomfortable situations. Today, her Berkeley Comfort Model is used in the world’s most sophisticated comfort stimulations. Upon testing the Embr Wave, she concluded that the difference in overall comfort was not only statistically significant but also remarkably impactful, stating “Embr Wave surprised our lab’s entire research team who specialize in thermal psychology and comfort. We did not expect a device so small to have this kind of measurable impact on the user’s thermal comfort.”

EYP Architecture & Engineering

EYP Architecture & Engineering is a global provider of high-performance building design, research, and consulting services. Embr labs invited EYP to pilot test the Embr Wave in their office environment in an effort to examine how the Wave can improve corporate wellness. Throughout the 5-week pilot period, participants were asked to track the differences in their thermal comfort while wearing the Embr Wave. 

Not only did Embr Wave greatly improve office comfort, but it also appealed to EYP's green initiative. Leila Kamal, VP of Design and Expertise, later noted: "Embr Wave potentially represents a very interesting and innovative way for employers and building owners to lower their energy costs."

Customer Questions
How does this product work?

This product works by heating your body using an in-built insulation coil powered by a battery pack

Is Embr Wave waterproof, can I wear it in the shower?

Embr Wave is water resistant, but not waterproof!

What are the dimensions of Embr Wave?

The dimensions of the heatsink on Embr Wave are 52 x 39 x 13 mm, and the stainless steel Milanese loop wristband fits wrists between 130-210 mm in circumference.

Can I fly with it and can it go through airport security?

Yes! It's essentially treated the same as any smartwatch or wearable that you might have on your wrist. Just remember to take it off before you pass through the scanners!

How do I increase or decrease warming & cooling?

You can increase the level of warming or cooling on your Embr Wave by clicking the right side (for warming) or the left side (for cooling) multiple times, or you can simply press and hold the right side or the left side. Once the light bar is filled all the way up (i.e. it is no longer just partially lit), that means you've reached the maximum level of warming or cooling and the device will flash twice to indicate that you can't increase the level of warming or cooling any further.

Can I use the product while working out?

You could, but that's not what Embr Wave is for. Embr Wave isn't designed to prevent overheating during intense exercise. You can wear it while working out, but our customers have generally found it more helpful while cooling off after the workout is over.

What do the different light bar colors mean?

Great question! Here is a handy guide for everyone here. Just click the read more button to see the image

How long does the battery last?

Embr Wave is designed to give about 15-50 sessions of warming/cooling. This translates to about 2-3 days of intermittent use according to existing customers.

Do I need a converter plug to charge it in a different country?

No, you don't. All you need is a wall-charger or a device that allows you to plug in a USB cable with a micro-USB and you're all set!

Does Embr Wave change my core temperature?

Embr Wave is able to make you feel more comfortable without needing to affect your body temperature. Thermal comfort exists separately from thermoregulation, and unless you're actually at risk of hypothermia or hyperthermia, it’s likely that your core temperature is already right where it needs to be at about 98.6 ºF. Thermal comfort, on the other hand, depends on local thermal sensations across your entire body. Just like when your hands or feet get cold in the winter and you feel miserable when you feel a localized sensation of warmth or coolness you’ll feel more comfortable overall!

Will it put me at risk of hyperthermia or hypothermia?

Short answer: not at all! Embr Wave is powerful, but not that powerful. If you’re not in danger of freezing or overheating, Embr Wave works great for a mild dose of relief when you need it.

Why does the top of it sometimes get hot when it is on cooling mode?

Embr Wave works like a miniature air conditioning unit: in order to deliver cool to your skin, it has to shed heat through the opposite side. As a result, when in cooling mode, the top and sides of the device will get warm. For optimal cooling, make sure your Wave isn't covered by anything so that the heat can dissipate properly.

What is the Embr Wave?

Embr Wave is a thermal wristband that provides relief and comfort at the touch of a button. Whenever you’re feeling uncomfortably warm or cold, simply push the button for a touch of cool or warmth!
