You’ve been told my doctors, health magazines and more that drinking enough water can lead to a very healthy life. Sure, we all try to drink our fair share of H2O to stay healthy, but it’s sometimes easy to forget how much we really need to drink. Tracking your water intake isn’t always easy, which is where the ILUMI Bottle comes into play. The Kickstarter campaign is a smartbottle that will track your water intake and connects to your device via Bluetooth for live updates and reminders for when you need to drink more water.
Simply download the free app and then connect your smartphone via Bluetooth, enter your weight and you’ll get your personal water intake recommendation. You’ll also be able to set reminders and notifications, track your overall weight loss and hydration, see your bodies estimated hydration level based off of how much you have drank updated live from your ILUMI, and get important facts and news about water and hydration. It’s pretty easy to use with only one on/off button so no need for complicated manuals or diagrams to figure out. And the LUMI’s LED ring will change colors as you drink from red to yellow to then green to indicate how close you are to your intake goal and then the app will send you notifications, too.
Its sensors built in to the lip of the bottle will register how much water you took in during your sip and then updates its LED ring to the right colors. When you reach your day’s goal, the LED ring will be totally green. It’s powered by a rechargeable battery which currently is estimated to have a lifespan of 2-3 days. And when it starts to get low on charge, there’s a plug at the bottom of the cap where you can easily hook to charge it back up. All the early bird specials are gone, so if you pledge $39, you’ll be one of the first in the world to get your own smartbottle.
