If you are not taking in enough water then you should seriously start looking for ways to increase your daily intake. Especially if you are more prone to reach for a cup of coffee than a glass of water. To help people build better hydration habits, EQUA, a new Smart Water Bottle is using light to remind us to drink more water while keeping tabs our progress.

Just launched on Kickstarter, the smart bottle and accompanying smartphone app work out your hydration needs by taking personal characteristics such as weight and height into account. The system then tracks your intake of H2O, and sends you a subtle reminder via a glowing ring at the bottom of the canister whenever its time to take another sip.

If you’re not sure how well you are doing, just tap lightly on the bottle and it will light up letting you know if you’re on track. A slow glow indicates all is well, while a fast glow means you are falling behind.

“EQUA is the culmination of eight years of customer feedback, research and design innovation, and we’re thrilled to see it come to fruition,” said Anze Miklavec, co-founder and CEO.

“Offering a personalized, no-fuss hydration plan in a premium, stylish package, EQUA makes it simple for users to build the healthy hydration habits they deserve.”

The bottle holds 23 ounces, its BPA-free and will keep its contents cold for up to 24 hours and warm for up to 12. There are three colors to choose from including Snow White, Dark Gray and Pink Blush.

The Slovenian based company already has two  successful Kickstarter campaigns under its belt, including the GOAT mug and GINA smart coffee instrument. If you want in on this one, it starts at $36. Delivery is scheduled for Q3.
