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. Sync with Apple Health, Fitbit, Under Armour Record, or Withings HealthMate to use your activity level to automatically adjust your goal. Your hydration records can also be saved 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.

This version contains changes targeted at some difficult-to-reproduce Bluetooth problems customers have reported:
• Occasionally, the home screen would incorrectly say "No Bottle". This should be fixed.
• Sometimes the bottle would try to sync water and update its blink schedule at the same time. This would badly slow the sync, maybe seeming to not sync at all. The blink update is now always postponed until after water is synced.
• The bottle normally alerts the app when it has new water to record. In case this does not happen, the app now re-checks with the bottle every few minutes while idle, just in case.
• The bottle can sometimes be slow to reconnect coming back into range. It should be slightly faster now.
If reconnection takes an unreasonable length of time, please: make sure the bottle is not connecting to your other phone or iPad instead; turn Airplane Mode on for 15 seconds to restart the bluetooth radio; and check the battery. Once the "Glow" button makes the bottle glow, the connection is working.
If you have any problems, please share the details with email@example.com. The more we know, the more we can fix.
Ratings and Reviews
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
Makes you drink!
This bottle paired with the app and an Apple Watch really makes you drink more water. I used to drink way too little compared to what I should be drinking. The notifications on the watch could not be any better, the watch face which now supports the series 4 watch is perfect. I keep a percentage of my intake on my face and now have a constant reminder of how much I have as the day progresses. The blinking is nice but not needed, wish I could take it off since I use the reminders from the watch itself but nice for those that don’t have or use the watch/app to monitor their intake. Customer service is amazingly fast and very helpful, they literally reply to you within a few hrs of your request being sent it. The battery still going strong for my bottle and I have 2, one for my wife and one for me. I do go to the restroom more often but that’s just how it’s got to be, I do feel better drinking more water. Keep up the good work!
