Hidrate: Your Smart Water Bottle

I have a confession to make. I am a terrible water-drinker. As in, I don't feel compelled to drink water, ever. Every time I get a bug or have a bad migraine, I tell myself that I'm going to start drinking more water. But, after a few days of good health, I sink back into my normal coffee-drinking habits.

I was recently introduced to a water bottle that might just help make me more conscious of the water I do (or, rather, don't) consume. Hidrate is smart water bottle that syncs with your smartphone to track your water intake, and glows to remind you to stay hydrated. Hidrate is a 24 oz. water bottle that is BPA-free, dishwasher-safe and leak-proof, and also has a one-year battery life.

The free HidrateMe app on your phone tracks your water-drinking progress, providing you with hydration history, and sends push notifications to your phone if you forget to drink. 

Hidrate comes in six different colors, and you can order your bottle(s) and back the project on Kickstarter - you have to act fast, though, as the Kickstarter campaign ends in less than two days! The HidrateMe app and the Hidrate bottles are set to launch and ship Winter 2015 - I'm so excited to get mine and work on staying committed to drinking enough water!
