I bought a $90 water bottle ... Well actually I didn't it was a gift. But I'm now an owner of a $90 water bottle. Ridiculous I know but here's why it tracks your water intake and reminds you throughout the day to drink water.
Henry is convinced that before this water bottle I was chronically dehydrated and he's probably right. I would drink coffee but actual glasses of water were maybe 2 a day if that. But I am really trying to help out my fitness and overall health. And if you've seen one article about the importance of drinking water you've seen 10. I know it helps your skin, your weight, metabolism, ability to flush out toxins, and more.
I was trying to drink more tea and get my water intake there, but I really wasn't motivated so I thought this purchase was worth it.
There is the Hidrate Spark out there which I think is more common and less expensive. The main difference is the bottle lights up when you should be drinking more water. Here is why I didn't buy that one:
1. I've heard of some people turning off the light because it was annoying and almost embarrassing in a public space (which sorta defeats the purpose).
2. I saw bad reviews of shipping. Those types of reviews always makes me a little skittish.
3. It was plastic. If I spending a lot of money on a bottle I want it with nice quality.
I also just liked the design of the Spring a lot better and thought that it wouldn't be super noticeable that I bought this really expensive bottle to help me drink more water. One thing I like about the Hidrate a little better is that it syncs with your Fitbit App.
So is it worth it?
I drink way more water than I use to
I lost water weight
I find myself recognizing thirst rather than thinking I'm hungry
I'm eating less because I'm getting full with water
Im making an effort to drink more without noticing
The app helps me and has really cute motivational texts
Due to all that I do think its worth it. It's a really nice product that works well and helps me in my fitness goals. I think I needed something like this thats a visiual to really help me make a change. Here is the link to the product.
