Hydration Just Got Super Simple Thanks to Smart Technology

Let’s take five… and be honest… when is the last time you stopped to take a sip of water?

We all know life is busy. Our schedules are non-stop… and it’s all-too-often way-too-easy to forget the simply daily routines that can overwhelmingly benefit our health and wellbeing – like drinking enough water.

In fact, as little as two per cent loss in our body’s water content can result in dehydration.

You know the feeling – it often creeps up out of nowhere – headaches, lack of concentration, irregular digestion, sometimes even over-eating.

Staying hydrated – drinking enough water, and drinking water at regular intervals throughout the day – is vital to how we look, feel and what we’re able to achieve during our day.

We all have good intentions to drink more water, more often. But in our busy lives it’s also so easy to forget to regularly hydrate.

The good news is – hydration just got super simple thanks to smart technology. Enter – the EQUA Smart Water Bottle – the latest innovation in smart technology.

EQUA’s latest offering launched just this week globally on Kickstarter – with overwhelming success. The smart bottle was developed after eight years of observation of thousands of EQUA’s clients’ hydration habits.

The bottle reminds users when it’s time to take a sip of water with a subtle glow, tracking overall water intake and helping users build healthy hydration habits by linking to a specialised app.

Every person is individual, and we all have personalised hydration needs that differ. Using smart technology to tailor a plan to suit your personal habits makes staying hydrated much more simple.

The Smart Water Bottle gets a little bit smarter too – the idea behind it is also to help all of us take a break from the electronic clutter that builds up around us everyday. The smart notifications prompt us to take a sip of water – and a short break.

Not only is the bottle smart – but it looks good- meaning you can carry it from home, to the office and gym, while staying on-trend and colour-coordinated. Win.

You can join the community and support the EQUA Smart Water Bottle Kickstarter campaign now – including gaining access to limited offers until the end of June, 2018.

EQUA have also released their top three hydration tips, to help all of us drink more water on the way to good health! Cheers!

1. Don’t wait!

Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink water. If we wait until we feel thirsty, it’s often too late and our bodies haven’t maintained proper hydration throughout the day. Try to take a sip every half hour.

2. Keep it handy.

It sounds simple – but how many of us forget to carry our water bottle everywhere we go? Keep your water bottle handy – from the desk, to your handbag to your beside table – to remind you to take regular sips.

3. Choose your style!

When you have reusable bottles you like – from colour, to style, design and functionality – you’ll be more likely to carry, use and take good care of them. Choose a bottle that suits your style!
