Un-Treehugger: HydraCoach Intelligent Water Bottle


Images via HydraCoach

We are all for people making a habit of drinking from reusable water containers. And there are a lot of great options out there to choose from. But there is a point at which a simple water container can be as lame as plastic water bottles. Take, for example, the HydraCoach "Intelligent" water bottle. Now this is something that only the most obsessive water drinker could appreciate.

The HydraCoach is the worlds first Interactive Water Bottle. It calculates your personal hydration needs, tracks your real-time fluid consumption, paces you throughout the day and motivates you to achieve and maintain optimal hydration. Our Doctors, Nutritionists and Fitness Trainers all recommend that we drink more water yet there has never been a device to help individuals adhere to the expert’s recommendations. The HydraCoach is the only product of its kind and a breakthrough in personal hydration monitoring.

Do we really need a water bottle that coaches us through our daily drinking? I think that's something our body has kinda evolved to do on its own. It's called feeling thirsty.

Toss it on the pile of e-wasteful "Crap We Don't Need," and for $30, probably wouldn't ever buy.
