Earlier we spoke about Smart Watches (Android Wear / Apple Watch), Smart Clothes, even Smart Diaper and now we are back with “Smart Water Bottle”. This is kinda cool actually. We are talking about HidrateMe, a smart water bottle which tracks your water intake and glows to remind you to stay hydrated. This also syncs to your smartphone for collecting data.
I think drinking water is perhaps the easiest way to stay healthy but most of us avoid that often. Either we have several distractions or we don’t remember (or make it as a priority) to drink water. We need something to remind us that we should drink water often, this smart water bottle, reminds us by glowing.
Smart Water Bottle
The HidrateMe bottle is a 710 ml. reusable water bottle. It is made out of BPA free Tritan plastic. This water bottle has a sensor stick inside which tracks how much you drink throughout the day. They also have an exclusive smartphone app (Hidrate) which receives information. The bottle glows when its time to drink more water, it will remind you to ingest whenever it is required. It has a battery which lasts almost a year and it is easily replaceable.
You can use this bottle for almost any purpose, since water is something we all need everyday every time. You can take it to your school, college, office, gym, or any other camping.
Nadya Nguyen (HidrateMe bottle creator) told TechCrunch: “We did 80 percent of the work for the campaign before it even started,” she said. “Thanks to that, we rallied a large group of influencers in the fitness world to help us spread the word and had a big sign-up list with potential backers long before our Kickstarter launch.”
This smart water bottle is doing really well on Kickstarter and it is one of the most successful smart water bottle concept campaigns ever. I really loved their app as well. I’m looking forward to see this in action. What do you think of it? Do let us know your views in the comments below.
