Confession: I don't drink enough water. Do you? I don't know why it's so hard for me. I struggle with water consumption every day! I have a gazillion water bottles, but I only use them successfully when I'm working out. Otherwise, I totally forget about them and the water they're holding for me. So when Linqia reached out behalf of Genuine Thermos Brand with an opportunity to review the new Thermos Connected Hydration Bottle, I accepted because #hydrationgoals.
This water bottle is seriously cool.
It would be a great gift for your favorite fit or tech-obsessed friend.
Or anyone that wants to meet and exceed their hydration goals.
I know what you're thinking: How will this water bottle make a difference if I can't manage to use the gazillion bottles (total exaggeration, by the way) that I already have? What makes it seriously cool?
Get this: It has a Smart Lid.
See that port right there? That's how you charge the internal battery.
The Thermos Connected Hydration Bottle with Smart Lid has a rechargeable internal battery because it continuously tracks the amount of water I consume throughout the day and uses Bluetooth Smart Wireless Technology to send the data to my phone...onto which I've downloaded the free Thermos Smart Lid App. (It also syncs to a FitBit if you have one, which I don't.)
The app itself is compatible with a variety of Apple products that use iOS 7 (or any subsequent versions). It's free and totally easy to set up. First, you have to identify your hydration goal based on age, gender, height, weight and activity level. Then, you just sync and drink.
The Connected Hydration Bottle does the rest. It tracks the amount of water I've consumed throughout the day, providing the number of sips I've taken, individual sip size and total ounces consumed. It also tells me how cold my water is. And if it's been too long since my last drink, the app will notify me that it's time to gulp some water down.
Back up, though: Why is water so important anyway?
Because without it, our systems wouldn't function quite like they should. Hydration ultimately increases energy levels, regulates circulation, aids digestion and improves skin quality.
Picture a car without gas.
Or the desert sans rain.
It's just really important to stay hydrated. And yet, it's so hard!
It is for me, anyway
But a water bottle that keeps track of my hydration goals?
How fun. And how useful!
The Thermos Connected Hydration Bottle with Smart Lid is a totally new way to stay hydrated. It holds 24 ounces of water, and the bottle itself is BPA-free and impact-resistant.
At $59.99, it's a bit expensive, but most tech-based gear is.
'Tis the season to splurge on awesome gifts, though. Right?

Of course, you can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. I'm sure you'll see a lot of the Connected Hydration Bottle there, too.
Question: Do you drink enough water? How do you keep yourself focused on hydration? How do you think this product would help you?
