Winter’s over and those strappy sandals are just begging to come out and play. To help you prepare, Precise Pedi promises to buff away dry, cracked skin and calluses, giving you “silky smooth” feet from toe to heel.
Precise Pedi does this by spinning its interchangeable micro crystal tips (including a precision tip to reach between your toes!) at 3,000 RPM, which gently and effectively removes rough skin around your heels, soles, and sides of your feet. And unlike the competition, Precise Pedi claims to feature an ergonomic design for easy handling.
You want great-looking feet, right? Sure you do! After all, that’s why you’re here. But you also don’t want to waste your money, so let’s find out if Precise Pedi really will deliver “amazing results.”
The Basic Concept Behind Products Like Precise Pedi
If we were to express Precise Pedi’s functionality as an equation, it might look something like this: Friction + Speed = Surface Skin Removal
To accomplish this, electric callus removers like Precise Pedi combine two main parts: a 1) plastic body that houses a motor, which spins a 2) cylindrical head covered with some kind of abrasive. Similar to a miniature sander, this fine-grit, sandpaper-like surface grinds away at the top layer of calluses and corns, decreasing their appearance.
What about Precise Pedi’s “micro crystal surface”? We think this is just some creative marketing spin for something that’s not meaningfully different than what you’d find with much of the competition.
Speaking of which, let’s talk about these other devices next.
What’s So Great About Precise Pedi?
Remember the cylindrical design we just talked about? This is the de facto setup for most electric handheld callus removers, including popular options like Personal Pedi, Ped Egg Power, Emjoi MicroPedi, and more.
While this design can be ideal for buffing large areas at once, this comes at the expense of getting into tight spaces, such as the area between toes. To do just this (and to perhaps separate themselves from the competition), Precise Pedi comes with a cone tip.
However, Precise Pedi isn’t the only electric callus remover with a cone-shaped tip (use your favorite search engine to quickly find several options)—although it seems to have everyone beat in the price department. We’ll talk more about this in a second.
How Well Can You Expect Precise Pedi to Work?
Interchangeable tips or not, can you realistically expect Precise Pedi to deliver on its promises? There weren’t any online reviews yet, but we’ll tell you this: After reviewing well over 100 ASOTV products, customers often claim they don’t work as well as advertised, and can leave something to be desired from a quality perspective.
How’s this relate to Precise Pedi? We’re just here to make sure you have a complete view of the situation; that’s all. It definitely doesn’t guarantee you’ll experience the same.
We will say this though: We think Precise Pedi’s manufacturer could’ve been a little more forthright in their advertising. What do we mean? We’ll explain…
Precise Pedi & Truth in Advertising
Look, if you’re a company and you’re promoting a new product, it’s perfectly reasonable to emphasize its strengths, minimize its weaknesses, and convince customers it can somehow make their lives better in some way. That’s just Marketing 101.
However, take a look at the picture below. Pay close attention to the placement of the foot in each image; where the wrinkles in the skin are located, the ways the toes overlaps, as well as the spaces between them. What do you see?
They’re the exact same picture, right? We can see that the one on the right has simply been digitally edited to give the appearance of smoother, callus-free skin.
As you can clearly see, these are the exact same image, with the right side digitally enhanced to appear smoother.
Also, remember the demonstration in Precise Pedi’s commercial using the gourd? Did you notice how fast the competition’s device was moved over the bump? Then, how long Personal Pedi remained in place? Given those circumstances, of course Personal Pedi’s going to work better than other devices!
Putting these factors together, will you really experience an “astonishing transformation,” as the manufacturer would like you to believe? While we’ll have to wait until customer reviews start pouring in to gain some insight, we think this is an important question you should continue asking.
Will Precise Pedi Precisely Drain Your Bank Account?
One Precise Pedi will cost you a cool $19.95, plus free S&H. You’ll also get a 30-day money back guarantee (less S&H charges, of course).
While Precise Pedi’s real-world performance might remain in question, you’ve got to admit that its price is pretty attractive—in fact, it’s priced meaningfully less than many other similarly designed devices.
Bright tip: One question that persists is how you can purchase replacement tips once the micro crystals wear down, although there’s no information on the product’s website.
The Verdict: Yes or No for Precise Pedi?
Our goal is simply to provide you with the information, but leave the ultimate decision up to you. And it’s no different with Precise Pedi.
In our opinion though, if you’re looking for something designed exactly like Precise Pedi (the spherical and conical tips, versus the roller design of most callus removers), you’d be hard-pressed to find anything less expensive. Plus, it comes with free shipping and a 30-day refund policy, leaving you out just a few bucks in return S&H.
On the flip side of the coin, we’ll leave it up to you to decide how you feel about some of the company’s advertising strategies. Also, remember that these handheld devices (Precise Pedi or otherwise) aren’t exactly known for their power. So, if you think you’re going to remove years of callused skin in just a few minutes, you’re bound to be disappointed.
