What’s the most advanced shaving technology of series 9000

Contour Detect Technology: This is new technology of series 9000 shaver, it will follow the contour of your face, chin and other hard to touch area and sensitive area,  sensotouch 3D has the similar technology called gyroglex 3D contouring, but not as close and comfortable as shaver 9000. Another upgrade is each shaving head independently moves in 8 directions. which will helps cut up to 20% more hair in a single pass, so every shave will take less time to finish.

V-Track Precision Blades: Compared with the ultratrack shaving system of 3D, it will collect hair in the optimal cutting position, resulting in a more comfortable shave that’s 30% closer. The blades also self-sharpen to ensure a premium shave day after day.

Personal Comfort Settings: This is the new feature if series 9000. 3D don’t have similar functions. Every one has different type of beard, and besides face shaving, you may need to shave other areas like body, back, neck, chin or even legs,  we can choose slow mode for sensitive skin, then it will provide  skin-friendly shave, choose medium mode for normal every day shaving, choose fast mode is time is limited or some touch areas.  Braun series 7 also has similar features, it’s really a good design for user.

Advanced UI with motion sensor: The UI for series 9000 shaver 9700 is really amazing.  it’s not just simple 5 level or 10 level to show the status of your shaver, but display by percent. For every day use, it will tell you how many percent of power left, when in charging, it will tell you how many percent it’s now charged; when in auto clean process with smartclean system, it will tell you how may percent it’s finished already; and if you just forget to clean the shaver for a long time, it will tells you what’s the hygiene status and you can do necessary clean in time. These are all based on the most advanced indicator.

            1. Surprise that for the higher price I’d paid for the 9800 that it doesn’t come with a simple stand. The shaver design is so delicate and actually clumbsy to just let it lie on it’s side.

            2. The “Jet Clean” old system is much cheaper to maintain, since it doesnt require you to purchase the expensive cartridges. This new razors are a downgrade.
