A good high-tech water bottle that actually delivers. The myhydrate bottle is one of the few smart water bottles that actually works as advertised. The smart part is a sensor stick that attaches to the screw-on bottom of the water bottle and sends drink data to the free app via Bluetooth. The app then compares your drinking progress to the recommended number of ounces you should drink each day, based on answers you provide about your age, weight, sex, and physical activity.
The app also takes into account the weather, since your body needs more fluid in hot weather and more liquid for exercise. If you’re not hitting your daily drinking goal, the bottle will gently beep to remind you to hydrate. The reminders aren’t abrasive like some other smart water bottles, and the LED button design is subtle enough to not look annoying or make you feel like someone’s nagging you to drink more.
If you have trouble getting your myhydrate bottle to sync, the app features free tech support that connects you with professionals who can help you get everything sorted out. The water bottle itself is durable and built to last, with a strong outer shell that resists scratches and dents. It comes with a standard Flex Cap that you unscrew to drink, but if you prefer swigging straight out of the bottle, there are also Hydro Flask’s Sip Lid and Straw Lid Caps that you can add on.
