Summary: Slendertone Abs8 is the latest in a long line of abs toning belts. Based on the feedback from multiple users, this model crushes the older models. One comment came from someone using abs belts for 20 years. They said this one is way better. It has fixed some of the common gripes with previous belts. There is an easy to see angled display, 1o0 levels and 10 different programs – 3 for use while working out. You can also get variations aimed at men (the default is a female form), plus extra value pad packs.
All this for a price which is a lot closer to the older Slendertone belts.

It is the electronics which make the Abs8 belt so popular. The basic form is similar to many older belts. It has a wide front, which supplies the EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) via pads – directly to your midriff. You can adjust the size at the back. The design has improved over the years. These days the belts are super-comfortable – though unlike with the marketing pictures, not really the kind of thing most people would wear openly while out and about.
The basic belt comes with pads, and LCD screen and easy to use controls on the front. It will fit a huge range of waist sizes, from 24 inches to 42 inches. It comes with a rechargeable lithium ion battery.
You will find some excellent value options, some have extra pads, others are sex specific. Here are your key choices:
Average users reported losing 3.5cms from their waistline with these belts. Keep in mind that the best results from EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) comes if you do not have too much excess fat in the first place. That stops the current getting through – and also hides some of the results of stronger abs muscles.
Abs8 comes with a face-up OLED display. This is designed to be easy to see while you are wearing the belt. It took a few years to think of this (reminds me of how many years it took to put wheels on luggage). It has a memory to track your most recent session – which comes in handy as a reminder when you are ready to go.
There are 10 programs in total. 7 are passive. They are designed to work while you are watching TV and so on. The others are active, to tone while you are working out. Add to this 100 intensity levels, designed to incrementally get you the results.
For the best results, Slendertone recommends using this belt 5 times a week for 20 to 30 minutes.
There is a lot of feedback for these belts, giving plenty of time for a fair overview of the plusses and minuses. Feedback is positive for belts. When reading this you need to account for many buyers thinking it will be a ‘miracle solution’. Abs belts are effective, though work best for those who have already got rid of the excess fat and want that extra edge / tone.
One notable comment said this was the best product yet – after using Slendertone for 20 years. Others were confused about which muscle groups this belt worked with. It is abs only.
Feedback is positive about the quality and value.
For abs belts and any fitness equipment, I always like to suggest that readers check the most recent comments before buying. Slendertone has a brilliant reputation for service – though you never know when it might change.
This is an exceptional product – though you need to understand how it works before you will know if you can get the benefits.
If you have excessive fat around your stomach, abs belts are not for you.
You need to get trimmed, then use the belts. They will definitely help with the last bit, the move from ‘not bad’, to ‘wow!’ for your abs area.
No brand does a better job than Slendertone. You can now get bottom training belts, and others for your pecs and biceps.
3.5cms is the average trim. To me that is worth every penny.
