The Hydrate company was awesome enough to let me review a water bottle that they have been promoting recently. I was super excited to be able to preview and use this bottle.
Being a teacher, I am constantly on my feet and running around all over my room, the school and other places. I always forget to drink water and usually never get the right amount in me, which is extremely frustrating for someone who likes to workout and eat right.
Enter Hydrate Spark Water Bottle. This bottle was easy to set up and assemble from the beginning.
It came in an enclosed box all wrapped up in bubble wrap.
Once I figured out how to assemble the bottle and placed the small battery into the water bottle from there, I had to set up the app on my phone. It was super easy to download and it sends you reminders for when you need to drink more water.
This bottle lights up when it’s time to drink, and connects to your phone so you know exactly how much water you have consumed through the day. The bottle comes in cute colors. I love turquoise, so I decided on that color since it was so pretty.
When it is time to drink more water, the bottle glows very brightly for all to see. Even while I was in school, the bottle would start glowing and if I didn’t see it, my students would say, “Your bottle is glowing”. “Does that mean you are supposed to drink more water now?” I loved that because it was just a natural reminder for not only me, but also for my students.
I can honestly say that I love this bottle. It connects to your phone via bluetooth, it can pair with a fitbit, glows to remind you to drink more water and sends you phone alerts to remind you to drink the water if you are not. On the app, it also tells you how many ounces of water you have drunk and how many more ounces you need to drink.
So far, I have hit my goal on most days. The only time I have not is if I leave it in my room during a meeting and I can’t get back to it right away. I am all about making ways a little easier when I am teaching so that I can get my required amount of water and exercise.
There were two things that I was not a fan of when it came to the bottle that could be easily fixed:
- It sweats easily if I put cold water and ice in it. It does keep my water cold, but it sweats very quickly which is frustrating when I am by the computer. I think if some insulation was added, it would be awesome!
- After numerous times of opening the top, it usually would pop open, but the small piece on top of the bottle that opens it quickly broke off and I wasn’t able to put it back on there.
- It didn’t fit very well into my bike water bottle holder, which isn’t a big deal, but would have been nice if it did.
Other then those three things, the bottle was awesome! I loved using it and having the chance to review it! Thank you Hydrate Spark for allowing me to review your awesome product.
