Do you get most of your water intake from coffee? The problem that most of us run into is reminding ourselves to drink the recommended eight glasses of water per day. It's easier to grab a coffee and be done with it. So if you have a reusable water bottle you never use, you're not alone.
But what if you could have a water bottle that tells you when you need hydrate? People like you are tired of falling short of their goals, and they're paying $55 to make it all go away.
A Kickstarter project called Hidrate Spark turned into a successful business when they started selling out of their smart water bottles. Their product uses specialized technology to track how much you drink and when you need more. It even has an app so you can connect it to your smartphone!
"Hidrate Spark 2.0 tracks your water intake, connects via Bluetooth to hydration app, syncs with Fitbit, Apple Watch & more, and glows to remind you to stay hydrated," their website says.
So how exactly does it work? The bottle has a screw-on cap and high-tech "measuring stick" inside that senses each time you take a sip. 10 seconds after placing the bottle down, it calculates your intake and syncs with the Hidrate Spark app on your phone.
If you're overdue for a guzzle, the app with notify you. At that point, if you don't take a drink, the water bottle will start to light up as a double reminder. So, not only is the water bottle amazing at encouraging you to drink more water, but it looks super cool. Who wouldn't want to bring a glowing water bottle to the gym?
The Hidrate Spark 2.0 is available in six colors, including white, green, teal, pink, purple, and black, and you can buy it here for $54.95. It looks like the green shade is the most popular, because it's already out of stock!
