Sharkbanz Shark Deterrent Ankle/Wrist Band
“Sharkbanz are a convenient shark deterrent for the beachgoer, swimmer, and surfer. Created by surfers and divers and tested by marine biologists on predatory shark species, Sharkbanz use patented magnetic technology to interfere with sharks’ sensitive electroreceptors. Sharkbanz do not harm sharks or other sea creatures, use no batteries, require no charging, and are designed to endure the most rigorous water sports. Just buckle it on and enjoy your ocean adventures with greater peace of mind."
Features:No BatteryAges 5+Universal Fit (fits ankles or wrists between 5.5 to 14 inches)Weight: 3ozMagnetic TechDepth Rating: 200mDurable & SecureWear on Ankle or Wrist3% For The Ocean (a percentage of Sharkbanz profits are donated to ocean conservation groups)
Tested Science - Proven Results"Sharkbanz are a fun, 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 renowned shark experts, marine biologists Dr. Eric Stroud and Dr. Patrick Rice. The two scientists founded Shark Defense almost 15 years ago, and are now the leading researchers in shark repellent technology. Sharkbanz use special patented magnetic technology to deter sharks from attacking people. Most shark attacks occur in murky, shallow waters off the coast where there are a high number of swimmers and sharks sharing the same space. In this environment,sharks rely heavily on thei electro-receptors,or ampullae of Lorenzini, instead of their eyes to “see” what’s around them. They possess the most sensitive electro-magnetic sense of all known animals, and use it to judge distance, shape, and even the heart rate of other animals near them. Most of the time, sharks get it right and leave people alone. Occasionally, they don't. Sometimes when relying on their electro-receptors, a curious shark may bite a person in order to figure out what he or she is. These unprovoked “hit and run” attacks are the most common type, and Sharkbanz are an excellent defense against them. As the shark approaches a person wearing Sharkbanz, magnetic waves coming from the band disrupt its electro-receptors and it quickly turns away. The experience for the shark is, “like a person suddenly shining a very bright light in your eyes in a dark room, and it’s not pleasant”, according to Dr. Stroud. Once a shark comes near the band, it frequently leaves the area and does not return."
