Apple has now launched a smart water bottle that can track your daily intake of water and remind you to stay hydrated. The steel-framed HidrateSpark PRO Water Bottle from Apple is compatible with the iPhone app and can be synced to Apple Health via Bluetooth. It costs $149.99 in the United States, while the steel-framed HidrateSpark Steel PRO Water Bottle from Apple is compatible with both an iPhone app and health tracking through fitness devices, such as Fitbit or Garmin watches.
The $59.95 (Rs 4,596) and the $79.95 (Rs 6,129) smart bottles have been priced at Rs 4,596 and Rs 6,129 for the PRO and PRO Steel version respectively but are currently available in two colour variants- Green and Black.
Features of the smart bottle
The bottle is made of shatter-proof and odour-resistant Tritan plastic and is equipped with an LED smart sensor “puck” that tracks daily water intake. The data is then recorded through the application on one’s Apple , iPhone, or iPad. Interestingly, the colours and patterns of the puck can be modified as per the user’s requirements. To record the data on daily water intake, one has to download the HidrateSpark app, which links to Apple Health.
This smart bottle has been designed to glow at the bottom when it is time to take a sip and the app recommends a daily water goal and syncs with the bottle to show one’s progress. The bottle also comes with a battery and a charging cable and its stainless-steel and vacuum-insulated composition can keep the water cold for as long as 24 hours.

HidrateSpark, which was founded in 2014 and has become the leading manufacturer of smart bottles, claims that its latest product is clinically proven to be effective and accurate. The company also claims that it has saved over 11.7 crore water bottles owing to its smart devices. Meanwhile, the smart bottle is currently available only in the US market and is yet to go global. This is the tech giant’s latest stint after launching the cleaning cloth last year, which went viral for its pricing. Made of soft, non-abrasive material, the company priced the product at Rs 1,900, saying it was only meant for Apple products.
