This invention looks really nice and + it doesn't harm shark at all. It just make shark go away which you won't get bitten when you are diving, surfing, or swimming in the ocean. No one wanna get hurt! Try this!

So it's not surprising to see sales of personal shark deterrents or repellents starting to gain some traction. But just how effective are they in preventing a shark from attacking?

It is important for us to be honest about what Sharkbanz technology can and can not do. Sharkbanz will reduce the risk of shark interactions but there is no 100% guarantee that interactions will not take place.

However, many of our freedive and spearfishing customers also surf, so we are pleased to offer the Sharkbanz Shark Repellent Bracelet to our customers who also surf.

Cool. Maybe beaches will fit swimmers with bracelets on beaches with alot of shark activity. In Australia and the coast of Florida.

I wonder what impact this has on the other fish in the ocean.

I know this is not going to work the way they want it to but I am glad they are taking a scientific approach to keep people from getting eaten by sharks. I still say stay out of the water.

Awesome. This is needed for the surfers in California. I have seen baby sharks while further out in the ocean.

Sharkbanz are an easy way to add peace of mind to the everyday ocean swim, surf, or snorkel, but make no mistake: the science is real. We enlisted the services of the renowned shark experts at SharkDefense Technologies. This group of scientists founded the organization 15 years ago, and created breakthroughs in a variety of shark deterrent technologies through their research and development.

But does it really work? I guess only time can tell...

Sharkbanz are not designed to prevent sharks from eating visible bait. They have a hierarchy of senses and can override the electrical sense in the event that visible bait is present. Again, Sharkbanz are meant to deter curious sharks from biting a person while in investigative mode, not prevent them from eating bloody fish bait.

Sharkbanz — a rubber band that resembles a FitBit bracelet — uses a magnetic field to repel sharks by disrupting their electro-receptors, which they use to figure out what something is in the water.

Who is going to test this? Not me?

I say the scientists who created this should treat it out. I think the concept had been proven but still seems scary.
