This worked great initially. Now, about 3 weeks later the app will not calibrate the brush. I love the brush but the app is not ready for prime time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MitchellM The Philips Sonicare Flexcare Platinum Connected toothbrush with Bluetooth made my life easy.
As a father of two children who works many hours, I am always excited to test out a product that has the potential to make my life easier. The Philips Sonicare Flexcare Platinum Connected toothbrush with Bluetooth did just that which I received as a free test product.
•This toothbrush has many features, including bluetooth capability that can show me exactly where and how hard I am brushing and even track problem areas and show me where I have the potential for cavities or gum problems. I found out a lot about my teeth and gums that I didn’t know before.
•The shape of the toothbrush is effective for cleaning my teeth and gums, and I like that the toothbrush allows me to brush with the perfect about of pressure and speed that is just right for me.
•The two minute timer makes sure that I am not cutting corners when I am tempted to with a regular toothbrush.
•The smart monitor even alerts me to when my brush head needs to be replaced, which really comes in handy for a busy dad like me.
•Lastly, I like that it comes with a travel case and travel charger, as I do have to travel for my job.
Product Assembly / Ease of Use:
• This toothbrush is really easy to use and to take care of. Once the battery is charged it is set to go.
• Setting up the bluetooth capabilities and connecting it with the App on my phone, however, did take some time and a few different tries. This was one thing that I found a bit frustrating.
•Once the App is set up it is really easy to use and understand for simple tracking and monitoring.
Performance / Recommendation:
•I would say that this toothbrush has top-rate performance. I do feel like I have a cleaner, healthier mouth after using it for a few weeks.
•I would recommend this to a friend or family member who is looking for a quality electric toothbrush.
•I would not recommend this to the older members of my family, however, as I know the smart sensors and monitoring/using the App would probably be confusing for them.
•One thing that I think would make this toothbrush even better would be a self-sanitizing case, such as a UV light for daily cleaning.
Overall, I was impressed with the Philips Sonicare Flexcare Platinum Connected toothbrush with Bluetooth and plan to purchase one for my wife very soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jon78 Bluetooth Toothbrush
I received a free sample to use for this review and I`m very happy with this toothbrush. I`ve used a few other electric toothbrushes and this is the best one by far. My teeth feel much cleaner after using this. I really like the blue tooth feature. I have a tendency to brush with to much pressure which causes tooth sensitivity. The app tells me if I`m brushing to hard. It also lets me know when I have brushed for the right amount of time. I`m interested to see if my dentist notices a difference next time I go. I would definitely recommend this tooth brush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SashaA state of the art
This toothbrush is a huge upgrade from my prior electric brush. The amount of power, the strength options and the way it cleans is far superior to my prior Sonicare model. because of the design and options it has much more power also because of the design it will also stay much cleaner than my old one. This brush has no cavity to collect dirt and gunk and therefore should continue to brush at full power without being impeded by buildup. I don`t find the bluetooth connected app very worthwhile personally, however I believe that others that are interested in tracking their brushing would find it quite useful. It tracks how much time you spend in each part of your mouth and how much life is left on your brush head how much life is left in your battery all very useful things if you are interested to collect that data. I do need to mention I was sent this brush as a free sample. However I would buy it given how well it performs, although I would be just as happy with the brush itself and may not spring for the bluetooth connected version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TomB82 Best Toothbrush Ever!
I will get right to the point in my review. Best toothbrush ever! While I will admit I haven't tried every toothbrush that has ever been produced, I can say that out of all of the electric toothbrushes I've tried in my days the Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected is my favorite. I received a free sample of this toothbrush to review but in no way did that affect my opinion of it. This toothbrush raises the bar with its many unique features that make brushing your teeth fun. To start, the toothbrush does an excellent job at cleaning your teeth and making them feel clean, even without all the added bells and whistles. I get the clean & polished feeling just like when I visit the dentist. My favorite feature is its built-in timer that vibrates the brush every 20 seconds so you know when to switch to a different set of teeth. It's easy to not brush long enough in a certain spot and having a physical reminder to switch is great. Its companion smartphone app that connects to the toothbrush via Bluetooth is really where the fun is at. When connected, the app shows an image of your teeth along with a timer that helps you see how well you are brushing certain areas, and for how long. I think the Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected toothbrush hits the nail on the head with the app because so many things we do each day are tied into our smartphones and having an app to make brushing more enjoyable just makes sense. The product exceeds all of my expectations I had for it. It was extremely easy to charge and setup/pair with the app. I can't think of anything I would change about it at this point and I would definitely recommend this to anyone as a toothbrush to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnL76 It's like a daily dental visit
I have been a loyal Sonicare user since the 90's when I received my first one (that still works) for Christmas. Phillips sent me the new Flexcare Platinum Connected to try out. All I can say is WOW!!! It truly feels like you are getting a dentist cleaning each time you brush and the app let me know I wasn't cleaning my back teeth as well as I should. This is by far one of the best products I've ever used!

Philips Sonicare Flexcare Platinum Connected.
So I tried out this toothbrush, not sure what to expect. I have used electric toothbrushes in the past, and wasn't sure what the "connected" aspect was going to bring to enhance the experience. Let me say I was pleasantly surprised. This toothbrush has the same great brushing experience I have come to expect from a Sonicare toothbrush, but has improved on this experience with the use of the app. First time downloading the app and getting it all set up was a little of a hassle. Requires you to sign in with an account etc. Pairing the toothbrush with your smart phone is pretty simple. Once this is completed, you start brushing, and the app has a timer that counts down your 2 mins of brushing time. BUT, the app also has a map of your mouth, and splits your mouth up into sections. The App lets you know when your time is up in 1 section, and where to move to next. Pretty Helpful to make sure you are spending equal time in all areas. Also, while brushing, the app is giving you feedback. "Too much Motion", or "Too Much Pressure" where the ones I kept getting. A little surprising, I guess I use too much pressure when brushing. Who knew. After your 2 mins of brushing is completed, it give a little summary of areas to focus on next time, and areas you exerted too much pressure. Overall I am happy with my first couple of uses of this brush, and will be interested to see if this helps my to brush my wisdom teeth more often, and area my dentist has mentioned to me in the past as a part I seem to overlook. The pressure sensor, and Brush pacer (and the app) are the 2 items I see as different from my previous model.
I received a free sample of this product to review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MarcT Only toothbrush and dental health app you will need
I received a free sample of the Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected to review. Overall I thought the toothbrush handle was excellent and clear upgrade from my previous Sonicare. However, I was underwhelmed by my perception of the accuracy of the connected app cleaning feature. Therefore, my overall rating is a Good.
Pros: Great handle, great brush heads, easy to connect with app, auto pressure sensor, different cleaning modes, nice travel case, long lasting battery when fully charged, plenty of integrated features in app (for brushing, tracking goals, progress, tools, etc.)
Cons: It was questionable to be how the accurate the app detailed my coverage area, there was no UV cleaning connected to base, I didn`t use many app features
This product is definitely superior to my last SonicCare. There are numerous features that can help aid your progress in various areas such as overall tracking, plaque removal, gum health and whitening. It is work stating that my teeth are already in very good condition and I do not have any issues with gum, plaque, etc. As a result, most of these features were underutilized by me. However, there is plenty to explore and integrate with the app for any type of user that is looking for a personal dental `hub` of info and progress.
I would recommended this product to anyone concerned with improving for maintaining their dental health!
