Smart water bottle will alert users when they are not drinking enough

Published May 21, 2015

MINNEAPOLIS (BRAIN) — The Hidrate Me Smart Water Bottle, which will launch a crowd-funding campaign June 1, will alert the user to appropriate drinking levels based on temperature, humidity, elevation and personal settings. The bottle can by synced to fitness wearables to track water intake and activity level.

The bottle has an app that takes into account personal parameters such as gender, age, weight, height, and activity level. It uses location information from the user's phone and automatically tracks water intake and sends reminders.

The bottle will remind users to stay hydrated with a soft glow coming from inside the bottle or by sending a notification through the phone. The Hidrate Me Kickstarter campaign will run from June 1 to July 13. During the campaign supporters can buy one of the first 290 bottles for $39 (they will later cost $45); they will ship next winter.
