(1) when the alarm turns on in the morning, it only stays on for 90-100 seconds before shutting itself off.
This is a huge fundamental flaw, as if you do not get up within that time frame you're better of putting your phone out of arms reach. I have emailed Ruggie, still waiting for a response, but if the model I have isn't defective, it's likely they already are awareness of this huge problem, and are straight up SCAMMING their customers.
(2) I can't upload my own mp3 song, the 'advanced software' crashes everything
Top reviews from other countries
--Unlike several other users, I did not have any trouble setting the alarm. When I read the other reviews, I was concerned that it would be complicated or take a long time; this was not the case.
--While I think most people could figure out how to set the alarm without the instructions, the instruction booklet is clear and concise. Are there some translation issues? Yes. Totally. However, this did not make the instructions unreadable at all. They're pretty basic.
--You do have to take the little clock out of the Ruggie (or at least pull it out some) to set it. I have not found this to be difficult or problematic in any way.
--You can, in fact, set your alarm for a different time every day by connecting the Ruggie via USB to your computer and downloading the "advanced" software from the Ruggie website. I just did it. It was super easy.
--You can also set up to two alarms per day, and you can add an mp3 greeting (record your own and upload, or download one of theirs and then upload to your Ruggie). All of this was very easy.
--If 3 seconds is not long enough for you to stand on the Ruggie (it wasn't for me--I'll go back to bed after 3 seconds), you can change the settings to require up to 30 seconds of standing. I changed mine to 15 seconds. Again, you can do this using the advanced software.
--Just a note about the advanced software--It's just a pop-up window. It's not fancy. There's nothing "advanced" in terms of using it. Also, when the Ruggie is connected to your computer and you apply the new settings, it happens instantly. There's nothing else fancy required. The software basically runs itself. You just need to connect the Ruggie, change your settings, and hit "apply."
--If you need additional help with the advanced settings, you can easily get instructions at the same time as the software (they pop up together when you download).
--There is an FAQ on the website, and you can e-mail customer service directly for support.
--Finally, I think the rug itself is pretty good quality. It's soft and kind of cushy. One of my dogs keeps trying to use it as a hang out spot, so I have to pick it up off the floor when she's around. :)
I was concerned about the Ruggie when I read the negative reviews, but after using it for a few days and seeing how easy it was to apply the "advanced" software, I'm really, really glad I bought it. I only wish the white one had been less expensive, since I'm not a big fan of the blue one (it reminds me of the color of the disposable hospital gowns where I work). Other than that one minor complaint (if that's really a complaint), I have no other issues to report. If you're having a hard time getting up in the mornings, I would recommend the Ruggie for sure.
UPDATE: I've been using the Ruggie for several weeks, and I still love it. I haven't had a single problem with it. And my life is *so* much better when I'm not late to work every day. I really feel like the negative reviews on here are undeserved, since most of the "issues" reported would be solved by either reading the instructions and/or uploading the "advanced" software.
I needed help getting out of bed in the morning, it gets pretty bad...
So I ordered a Ruggie because I thought it would help and I was super pumped for it. I got it, set it all up and started using it. And I found that it is just okay. There are a lot of flaws in my opinion.
1. If anything is on top of it, the alarm will shut off. Even a hoodie has shut it off. Okay, not a huge deal at all. No deal breakers yet.
2. You have to plug it into the computer to set multiple alarms and once you turn off Ruggie, all of those alarms are now gone when you turn it back on. So you have to go back and plug it into the computer and do all your alarms again. This is extremely annoying when you have a different schedule. Say I wake up at 6 am every weekday and then one week, I have a random Wednesday off so I decide to turn off the Ruggie and sleep in a little. That next Thursday, you will not have an alarm go off. This is something to consider and I did not find this in any of their features or notes.
3. This one is my biggest issue. The maximum amount of time you can stand on this is 1-20 seconds. 20 seconds being the longest until the alarm finally shuts off. I have a real problem with this because once the alarm goes off, I'm standing on Ruggie within 2 seconds. I stand there for 20 seconds and the alarm shuts off. I'm an EXTREMELY heavy sleeper and half the time I'm standing on this, I'm pretty much still sleeping. So immediately after that 20 seconds, I fall back asleep. Luckily, I found this out early and set a backup alarm on my iPhone.
You might be thinking, why don't you just stay up. Believe me, I would LOVE to! Once you get used to Ruggie, you literally turn the alarm off while you are still sleeping and have no recollection of doing so. That is my main issue with this device. Overall, the idea is great. I just wish you could set it to have to stand on it for a minute or two. 20 seconds simply is just too short.
Honest thought: putting your phone across the room is the same exact thing as this.
Edit: their advanced alarm setting program no longer worked for me. I downloaded them from their website every single time because they just crashed. So I manually set up the alarm without using the program, and the alarm never went off. What a bizarreee school kid project to sell in the market for this high price. I returned it and received 83 dollars for refund. So there you go.... It went from not working 99% of the time to never ever delivering what it promised to deliver. It’s almost a scam. I just can’t emphasize enough that this product was never ready to enter the market.
