We all know that we should drink more water instead of the sugary drinks and coffee that are so much more appealing. Sadly, something like 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated according to doctors.
This is very worrying because water is one of the most essential resources to our existence. Your body needs H2O to regulate its temperature, flush out harmful toxins and to help all your vital organs work properly. Being constantly dehydrated is very likely to have bad health outcomes in the long run.
If you are not getting enough water in your diet then you should seriously start looking for ways to increase your daily intake. Changing old habits is never easy but here are some gadgets that may help.
Ulla is a device that is small enough to fit pretty much any bottle or cup. It keeps track of how much water you drink and lets you know when its time to drink more. The company behind the gadget claims that users drink between two and three times more water when they follow Ulla’s optimal hydration cycle.
The gadget is very subtle and stylish. A high-precision accelerometer always knows when you take a drink. A gentle blinking will let you know when its time to take another sip.
Best of all, you don’t need to worry about complex settings. There are no on/off buttons. Just attach Ulla on a bottle/cup full of water and its tilt sensors will do the magic. The gadget works with an easily replaceable coin cell battery, no charging necessary and the battery life is up to 6 months.
As the name suggests, Sippo is a smart cup that keeps track of your water intake. Unlike the Ulla, however, it is connected to your phone via an app. This means that you can track your progress and set personalized daily hydration targets. It also means that you can adjust your hydration needs to your climate or activity level.
When Sippo knows you are due for a drink, a smartphone notification will appear to let you know. Or open the app to see if you are on track to meet your daily target or need to adjust. Detailed analytics will let you easily review your progress with charts and drink log history.
H2OPal is a thin device that sits at the base of the bottle. It makes your life easier by helping you take in more water, fewer calories and improve your productivity and focus by avoiding dehydration.
Smart notifications help you stay hydrated and the gadget also syncs with Fitbit through the iPhone app. The built-in flash memory, weight measuring sensor and accelerometer combine to monitor your water intake. Each day, H2OPal determines your optimal goal based on a range of metrics including: physical activity, weather, weight, and age.
Magnetic and vacuum connections enable a sleek design and easy setup. The gadget can keep going for months on a single coin-cell battery.
Solar power is abundant, clean, renewable, and effective. In fact, each hour, enough sunlight reaches the earth’s surface to provide for the world’s energy demand for a year.
This versatile backpack lets you charge your devices on the go and stay hydrated at the same time. It has an easy to remove 7W/6V solar panel along with a 10,000mAh waterproof emergency power backup / storage. The green, Earth-friendly solar charging module features a removable panel USB port that lets you charge two gadgets at the same time.
Most important of all, Ivation comes with a 1.8-liter water bladder along with a flexible pipe. The result is that you can drink water while wearing the backpack.
All in all, this is a great solution for holding backpacking supplies, as well as hiking, biking, or camping
