Smart water bottle helps you stay hydrated

When it’s time to take a drink an alert sounds and, as the bottle itself contains LEDs, a simple glance at its color will indicate when it's time for the next drink -- there’s no need to constantly refer to a phone.

The humble water bottle will once again see the ‘smart’ prefix added to its name if a new Indiegogo campaign hits its funding goal. Nearly half of us don’t drink enough water.

And that’s where BluFit comes in. A sensor-packed water bottle that connects to a smartphone and the now-obligatory app via Bluetooth, it makes certain its user is drinking enough water.
The iPhone and Android-compatible app collects data including the owner’s weight and age plus external factors such as the current temperature and humidity levels to calculate how much water is needed and then records the time and amount of water drunk from the bottle during the day. The system can also be programmed to help a user obtain specific goals and can be customized if he or she is in training or has a specific medical condition.

The bottle itself is glass and therefore dishwasher safe and comes in a rubber sleeve for protection and easier grip if out running. All of the sensors and the ten-day rechargeable battery are housed in the removable lid, which also has another neat trick for the more active: it can count laps and repetitions. What’s more, its developers are working on integrating the BluFit’s software with that of other leading health and fitness apps and motion trackers. The BluFit campaign launched this week on Indiegogo and is looking for $150,000 to make the device a reality. If it hits its goal, its creators hope to start shipments, priced at $59, to its initial customers in March 2014.
