Your partner in shaping healthy habits.
Hidrate Spark is an easy to use smart water bottle that keeps track of how much water you drink, lights up to remind you, and syncs to an app so you can see your progress.
GLOWS: Hidrate Spark will light up when you need to drink more water.
MEASURES: Hidrate Spark automatically measures how much water you drink, and sends it to your iOS device with Bluetooth.
RECOMMENDS: The app calculates a recommended hydration goal based on your personal parameters: age, height, weight and sex. It can even use your physical activity and local weather to adjust the goal specifically for you every day.
INTEGRATES: Your activity level affects how much water you need to drink. Connect to Apple Health, Fitbit, Under Armour Record, or Withings HealthMate to use your activity level to automatically adjust your goal. You can also save your hydration records to Apple Health or Fitbit.
HISTORY: See your hydration progress over time in a daily and monthly view. How many days in a row can you reach your goal?
FRIENDS: Keep an eye on your friends’ progress to make sure they are staying hydrated. Start some friendly competition to see who can meet their goal the most days in a row.
FUN REMINDERS: The app will send notifications when you begin to fall behind and need to drink more water. The bottle will also light up and glow to remind you to stay hydrated.
NEVER LOSE IT: Losing your water bottle is no fun, so we made it harder for this to happen. When location services are turned on, the app will record the last place it was connected to your Hidrate Spark, and show you a map so you can go back and get it.
This app works best when paired with a Hidrate Spark Smart Water Bottle. But even without one, all the other features will still work for you as a hydration tracker! You can get a hydration goal, manually record your fluid intake, track your history, share with friends, and get hydration reminders on your iOS device.
Benefits of water:
HEALTH: Alongside a healthy diet and proper exercise, hydration can help dramatically improve your physical health.
SKIN: Proper hydration helps skin retain moisture for a bright, healthy glow
COGNITION & MOOD: Your brain is 75% water, so proper hydration can have a positive impact on cognitive function and mood.
ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE: Even 1-2% dehydration can decrease physiological performance, and 5% dehydration can decrease your physical performance by 30%. So if you want to win, you better be hydrated.
WEIGHT LOSS: Combined with a healthy diet and exercise, drinking water can increase your metabolism and help you avoid eating and drinking extra calories.
INCREASED ENERGY: Drinking plenty of water helps with blood circulation, thus decreasing your feeling of tiredness and fatigue.
AVOID HEADACHES: Staying properly hydrated can help avoid headaches.
HEALTHIER SKIN: Staying properly hydrated helps your skin stay hydrated to help it look younger and healthier.
BOOST IMMUNITY: Staying properly hydrated can help you fight off illness and infections.
PREGNANCY: Pregnant and breastfeeding moms need to be properly hydrated so they can support their new baby.

We've added Day Streak to the home screen.
Some "help" balloons will appear, once, to clarify a few less-obvious features.
We now honor the "reduce motion" and "reduce transparency" system accessibility options.
We completely removed all nagging about turning on notification permission.
And the usual handful of subtle fixes.

Huge Bug and ideas for improvement!
First of all - I love my bottle! I bring it everywhere.
But as for the app - there are some issues. A huge bug I noticed is when I clicked “more” in the bottles tab, it gave me a long list with options I don’t think I’m supposed to have - for example: It gave me an option to downgrade the bottles firmware, gave me the option to look at a list of “debug” info, it also gave several other options that any regular user shouldn’t have. Another thing that happened is when that menu was up it showed my exact battery percentage (59%) of my bottle (note that this only happened once and it hasn’t happened since, but this was only a few hours ago). This brings me to my next section - ideas for improvement. It would be way better in my opinion to have the exact percentage of battery available. Another idea I had is for the user to be able to set exact times in the day for the bottle to notify you to drink.
All in all, this is a great bottle and app and thanks for taking the time to read this!
Developer Response ,
We appreciate the feedback and suggestions! We're always working to improve, and your feedback helps us a lot! You can submit feedback directly within the app as well. Just touch Settings (Gear icon on lower right) - touch More - Give Feedback, and shoot us a message.
The menu with options to see the debug info, downgrade/upgrade firmware isn't a bug and will help troubleshoot, should you have any issues with the bottle. :)
Thank you again! - Hidrate Team
Great conversation piece
I bought the black bottle at a discount store for $30 and love it honestly. I bring it into work with me and have shown it to everyone with a bit of a laugh because of what it is. They joke with me and ask if I have an app to tell me when to go to the restroom. Anyway I take it and go on with them. Honestly I think it’s the coolest thing. I had an issue with my black bottle and I when I was replacing the batteries, I had lost a little piece of the battery tray somehow. I contacted the company and they gave me 50% off a new battery tray ($4) for my black bottle. I found a white bottle in the meantime at another discount store for $21 and purchased it. I have 2 set up and working now on my one app. It will be interesting to see how both work on the app together to track my water intake. The company seems very responsive to help with the issue I had even though I didn’t purchase it from one of their retail suppliers. I love the finger loop on the bottles also, Great idea. I am a very techie guy if that says anything. I REALLY love the reminders the app sends. VERY AWESOME!

Thanks for the review! We're happy to hear you're enjoying it. You can definitely add multiple bottles to your profile. Keep in mind, you will only be paired with one bottle at a time (most likely the one that you were last closest to). Just keep an eye on them to ensure you're allowing them both to sync, and you'll be all set! - Hidrate Team
Love the concept not the actual product
When my bottle arrived came with two sets of batteries. The first so it was dead before I ever used it and the second only lasted for a month. The month that I got to use my bottle it was great! Drinking the right amount of water each day was really life-changing for me. I genuinely felt better after just seven days. Unfortunately when I sent in an email explaining that both sets of batteries were dead (they should apparently last for a year) customer service was a real pain to work with. After a lot of back-and-forth they sent me another battery holder and batteries without any instructions. It was easy enough to figure out how to put it all together but a little crazy that it didn’t come already put together and without any instructions. Why make it harder for your customer? Unfortunately that set only lasted two months. The outside of the bottle also has this frosted coating on it which is now rubbed off in patches making the bottle look terrible. At the end of the day when the product worked it was great but it’s a terribly made product that doesn’t last and they have terrible customer service (very condescending).

We value and appreciate your feedback. We're committed to providing our customers with a top notch customer service experience, so we're really sorry to hear this wasn't your experience. Please make sure your app is up to date, as we've released a sensor firmware update to address battery performance issues. Regarding the coating coming off, this definitely shouldn't happen. If you haven't already, please reach out to us again. We'd love to help make this right. - Hidrate Team
