As an avid hiker and outdoor enthusiast, staying adequately hydrated is one of my key concerns. Even outside of hiking, it’s a common challenge that we all face, often forgetting to drink enough water with our busy schedules. The WaterH Smart Water Bottle is a good solution to this issue, aimed at making hydration more manageable and measurable.
Right off the bat, the WaterH Smart Water Bottle is impressive. Funded on Kickstarter and the winner of the Innovative Design Award in 2023, the overall experience of using the WaterH Smart Water Bottle is enjoyable and easy. The setup involves three simple steps: charging the bottle via the wireless charging stations, connecting it to the WaterH mobile app (via Bluetooth), and finally, hydrating while the bottle automatically tracks your progress.
The bottle comes with a smart sensor that automatically tracks your exact level of hydration. This data is easily accessible through the WaterH app, which provides not only your hydration data but also offers recommendations on how to achieve your hydration goals based on your physiology and personal preference.
One of the key features of the WaterH Smart Water Bottle is its 360° LED Hydration Reminder. This feature provides a visual cue when it’s time to take your next sip, with the option to customize the reminder in the app. I found this to be a great reminder to drink more during the work day while I’m busy at my desk.
The app allows you to track your total consumption daily, weekly, and monthly. It was alarming over the first week to realize how little I was actually drinking. Initially, I found it difficult to hit the daily target (for me, set at 2650 ml). Over a few weeks of getting into the habit of hydrating more, it was nice to have the data to show an overall improvement on a weekly basis. To sync data, you simply need to open the app on your phone and wait a few seconds while the app automatically connects to the bottle.
In terms of construction, the WaterH Smart Water Bottle is sturdy and is convenient for travel. The bottle is made from dual-walled medical-grade stainless steel, ensuring that your drinks maintain their temperature without any metallic taste. The premium powder-coated matte finish provides a slip-free grip, making it ideal for hikers or anyone on the move. The bottle has a great design, size and weight, making it enjoyable to use.
Water quality is a major concern when it comes to drinking water. WaterH has addressed this issue by equipping the bottle with a built-in TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) meter. This feature allows you to know exactly what’s in your water, providing an added level of assurance. I personally found this reassuring while traveling and drinking tap water from new places (airports, hotels, etc).
The WaterH bottle claims an 8-10 day battery life on each full charge, but I found mine to last at least twice as long before needing a recharge.
In short, I wasn’t able to find much I didn’t like about the bottle. Before first using the water bottle, I was a little bit skeptical that it would be gimmicky, or cumbersome to use in practice. That has not been the case at all. It has a beautiful design and is great to hold. It’s dead-simple to use. You pair it to your phone once, and after that pretty much just use it like a regular water bottle, checking consumption every so often in the app. And as someone who is driven by data and metrics, it has really helped me to increase my daily water intake. I find I bring it with me in the car and anywhere I go throughout the day.
In conclusion, the WaterH Smart Water Bottle is more than just a water bottle; it’s a smart, innovative tool that helps you stay on top of your hydration needs. Whether you’re out hiking, or just going about your day around the house, the WaterH Smart Water Bottle is highly recommended.
