One thing that’s super important to our health that we often forget to do is drink enough water. But the beginning of a new year can be a great time to set yourself some goals in this area, and there’s a clever new water bottle that can help you out in that respect.
The Hidrate Spark 3.0 Smart Water Bottle is perhaps (as its name suggests) the smartest water bottle on the market right now. Part exercise buddy, part techy gadget, it cleverly measures the amount of water you drink, and tells you when to drink more so you stay hydrated all day long.
The Hidrate Spark has built-in Bluetooth capabilities which connect to an app on your smart phone, to track and prompt water drinking throughout each day. The app requires certain information such as your age, sex, weight and height, and using this data and the your environment and altitude, it will calculate your optimum hydration level and take its reminder cues from there.
So how exactly do you get reminded to drink? Well, not only will you receive a notification on your phone, your bottle will also starting glowing, so you literally can’t ignore it!
Other features the bottle has include its ability to sync with other friends’ bottles to motivate each other to keep drinking, and a program which is best described as the ‘find my iPhone’ of the water bottle world. Yep, if you misplace your bottle, all you need to do is check your app’s tracking technology to see where you last put it.
The bottle has become so popular it has garnered rave reviews on retailers such as Amazon, where it is sold for £59.99. Customers praise the bottle for helping them to become healthier by drinking far more water, and comment it ‘was worth every penny spent.’
