Health professionals commonly throw out a general amount which is supposed to apply to everyone. Eight glasses a day is a common answer. But the truth is, when trying to determine how much water should you drink, the answer is personal. There are a number of factors which influence the recommendation: age, height, weight, sex, elevation, and exercise, among others.
Consume too little, and you risk dehydration. Too much, and your blood sodium levels can be thrown out of balance.
Hidrate has developed an app for iPhone and Android which uses a Hydration Equation to calculate your daily goal based on personal factors unique to you. The calculation is updated daily to give you the most accurate hydration level whether you’re traveling, hiking in the mountains or swimming at the pool.
But here’s where it gets amazing. Hidrate has created a water bottle that will interact with their app… and it blinks (and texts you) to tell you when it’s time to drink! Dubbed “the world’s smartest water bottle,” the HidrateSpark STEEL is stainless steel vacuum insulated to prevent sweating and keep drinks cold up to 24 hours. A LED smart sensor “puck” glows to remind you when it’s time to drink and tracks your water intake by syncing via bluetooth to the Hidrate app.
The FREE HidrateSpark App syncs with your smart water bottle to track how much you drink, and send glowing reminders and text notifications keeping your hydration on track each day. Plus, the app keeps track of where your bottle was last synced, so you don’t have to worry about it going missing.
