Hidrate Spark is our featured iOS App of the Week which is a cool health related app that works alongside an innovative smart water bottle.
Typically we like to feature newly released apps in our weekly showcase, but although Hidrate Spark has been available for a while we felt it was a topic worth covering. Most of us don’t drink enough water and many people are dehydrated on a regular basis and don’t even know it. Hidrate Spark helps you set goals, track your daily water intake, and stay better hydrated.
Of course we could write a novel when it comes to discussing the numerous different health benefits of drinking water, but one such benefit is preventing kidney stones and UTI’s. According to recent data provided by the National Kidney Foundation it’s estimated that 1 in 7 Americans have chronic kidney disease (CKD). Drinking the recommended intake of water daily can help keep you healthy and also avoid kidney problems. Of course recommendations vary and not all adults are the same, but on average it’s recommended that men drink at least 13 cups and women drink at least 9 cups of water per day in order to stay healthy and hydrated. Pregnant women and breastfeeding moms also require more water on a daily basis.
The Hidrate Spark bottle has a built in sensor stick that connects with and sends data to the associated app. There’s no charging required as the sensor stick runs on two coin cell batteries. The bottle also detects when the lid is removed in order to prevent any false readings when you empty or refill your bottle. With the app you can setup custom hydration goals and easily keep track of your daily, weekly, or monthly water intake progress. Another cool feature of the bottle is that it glows to remind you when you need to take a sip to stay hydrated.
The Hidrate Spark mobile app also has the ability to sync with other fitness and health related apps which helps you better customize your goals based on activity levels.
Hidrate Spark and the National Kidney Foundation have also partnered to launch a campaign where 10% of all proceeds go towards helping fight kidney disease and increase awareness.
