Good but not without flaws

I really love writing on the Freewrite. It's actually exactly what it says on the tin. Distraction free. Love how it syncs with postbox BUT I hate how you never know what the charge is, never know how long it needs to be plugged in, and I wish there was no delay while typing. Like you delete and it takes a while to register and then you end up deleting too much.
Those are my peeves. Mostly they're irritating and I say this ONLY in the hopes that the developers take it on the chin for the 3rd Gen.
This piece of kit, while heavy and not ideal for going out and about, made me preorder the Traveler version. Love the keyboard. Love it enough that even though it's a pain. I'll be taking it with me when I travel regardless because it's great. My thumbs hurt less and my wrists rarely ache even though I pull 10k plus days words on it.

Also, is it just me but the clock doesn't seem to update sometimes?

Would 100% recommend.


Freewrite Smart Typewriter (2nd Gen)


I'm loving the workflow with this machine.

Nice product!

I like the singular purpose of Freewrite for serious writers.

Contrary to the effusive video reviews from fellow writers, it has been a challenge for me to get used to the keyboard. Far more effort required for touch typists. I am gradually adjusting.

I have an order for the Traveller and expect that keyboard and portability will be a great addition to my collection of professional writing equipment.

Has been a gamer changer for me !

I’ve been having writers block, for many months now. But since I started using the Freewrite, it has improved my focus, my creativity, and of course, my word count by 100%. Because now, I feel capable of of escaping the everyday distractions, by only writing, rather than editing and or being pulled away to a land of no return, with texting, emails, and social media.
