Keeping track of how much water you are drinking can be tricky, especially when you are on the move. The brains behind the HidrateMe smart water bottle believe they may have a solution to an increasingly important problem.

Doctors and health professionals are forever telling us to drink more water, and with the HidrateMe you will always know how much you have drank for the day. The smart water bottle syncs to a companion app on your phone in order to track your drinking habits, and consequently improve your hydration levels.


When it is time to take your next gulp, HidrateMe lights up, providing a visual cue to drink. Despite the electrical components, the bottle is entirely practical. The plastic bottle is dishwasher safe and features a leak-proof cap, and the electronics are powered by a battery which lasts more than a year.

From the outside, the HidrateMe is fairly unassuming, but it could have great benefits if you are one of the many people that do not drink enough water. It may seem bizarre we have become so reliant on technology that our phones will remind us when to stave off thirst, but our busy lives mean many people forget to look after themselves in the most basic of ways.


The HidrateMe is currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign, and a pledge of $45 will secure you a bottle in the color of your choice.
