Description

Your partner in shaping healthy habits.

HidrateSpark 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.

Key Features:

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.

Love my Hidrate Spark!

I’ve NEVER been good at drinking my water, to the point where I’ve been hospitalised for it at one point in my life. After hearing about this water bottle, I took a gamble on it and I’m in love. It makes it so easy to hit my water goal every day, it’s such a brilliant idea and very well executed. I’ve had a couple minor issues (and I mean like maybe 3) with the bottle recording water I didn’t drink, or not recording water I did drink. Thankfully you’re able to add and delete entries, so it’s not a big deal. Bottle is a great and attractive design, easy to clean, easy to recalibrate, durable, everything I could ever want. It’s been thrown clear across the back of a moving ambulance multiple times and has stood up amazingly. With the recent app update, though, I’m with a couple people in that I don’t care for the lighter color scheme. It would be great if you all could incorporate a section in the app where we could maybe personalize our backgrounds or choose from a number of pre-made ones. We get a bit of choice with our bottle colors, why not with the app itself? Thanks again for creating such a great product, I hope to never have to drink from another water bottle again!

Be ready to be sold in-app purchases for basic functionality

The idea for tracking water intake is interesting, though the app leaves much to be desired in terms of usability. Menu items are often named in an unclear manner, leaving users guessing as to what they actually mean. Performing simple functions, like changing the color of the lights on the base, are a huge hassle; just this function alone takes multiple seconds to actually register. As a computer engineer myself, I have no idea why it the app needs to (seemingly) synchronize with the device itself before registering (and returning responsiveness back to the UI).

Additionally, the biggest and most egregious problem, is that hidrate thinks that they’re building a platform from which to syphon money from its paying users: they offer in app purchases for “options” that a user would consider standard: changing the color of the base of the device. Want to assign a simple color change that’s not part of the basic six color options? That’ll be $5. This is a simple LED controller; I have no idea why the business side of this startup would believe that they should nickel and dime users who have already paid a significant sum for simple cosmetic features. This isn’t a multiplayer game—these are simple functions that shouldn’t be held back for a stupid $5 sum.

As a result, I cannot recommend this device, or the app, to any other potential users. Beware and choose wisely with your dollar.

Spark steel love

I just received this as a gift and have only been using it for a few days I really like the concept of being reminded to drink and love the steel option. I would never have bought a plastic one. My kids think it’s cool when it lights up and want one of their own too. I will say the app is ok but the trophies aren’t properly working. I changed my goal to be significantly above where it recommended I drink because I think the predictor of how much I should drink based on activity/pregnant/breastfeeding is way too low, not a big deal since the option to set your own goal is there. I will say however that the trophies are not being awarded in accordance on me actually meeting my goal. Example: I’ve had the bottle for a week. I’ve logged in every day but haven’t earned the 3peat trophy for logging in 3 days consecutively. I have however earned the 3day streak goal for meeting my goal three days in a row, but in actuality I’ve only met my goal consecutively 2 days in a row. So I think there are some bugs in the app. Otherwise a great product and I would absolutely recommend this to others!
