The Hidrate Spark tracks your water intake and sends the data to a hydration app on your smartphone and will glow when it thinks you should have another drink.
Explaining where they got the idea from, they shared: "In September 2014, Nadya pulled together a team of fellow U of M students for the Google Startup weekend in Minneapolis, Minnesota to build the first smart water bottle prototype. In just 54 hours, they built a water bottle that tracked water intake and synced to a mobile app on a smartphone. The product was well received - they won third place and people began asking when the water bottles would be available for purchase. That's the moment they knew they were on to something."
The Hidrate Spark 2.0 can hold 710ml of liquid and comes in no less than five colours - green, teal, pink, purple and black.
Writing on their website about how the bottle works, they added: "Your bottle comes included with a sensor stick, powered by two coin cell batteries. (That means no charging to worry about!) When you drink out of the bottle, the sensor measures how much you drank and transfers this info to the hydration app, which tracks your progress throughout the day, week and month ... The hydration app runs on many iOS and Android devices ...
"A sensor inside the bottle will automatically record how many oz/ml you are drinking and syncs to an app via bluetooth so you can record how much you have drunk on your phone ... Now with a brighter light and several glow types to choose from, your bottle will blink to remind you when you need to drink more agua. There's no need for charging this diamond shaped bottle that counters perfectly to your hand with a comfortable grippy texture. Simply replace the batteries when they get low."
