No, you probably don’t really need the Thermos Smart Lid. If you want to stay optimally hydrated at all times, though, it’s armed with just the right set of features to give you a heads-up whenever you need to take another sip to ensure your body’s getting all the water it requires.
Along with the accompanying smartphone app, the lid will keep track of how much water you drink out of the bottle, prompting you to take a sip whenever it determines your hydration levels might not be optimal. For those times you’re working out, it can even set up a specialized hydration goal based on your age, weight, and physical activity, adjusting its prompts to compensate for swear and your body’s increased need to replenish with water.
The Thermos Smart Lid includes a straw with integrated sensors that allow it to gauge how full or empty the bottle is, reminding you to fill up whenever it’s running low. A built-in thermometer even lets you monitor how cold the water is, so you can see when exactly when to dump a little ice or chill it in the fridge. Do note, it needs to be paired with a phone in order to properly communicate any information, so you can’t leave your phone in the locker during workouts if you want to be regularly prompted to take a sip.
Everything is powered by an onboard rechargeable battery that can last up to 12 days on a full charge. The bottle itself can hold 24 ounces of water, making it ideal for use whether at home or on the road.
Slated for availability in the fall, the Thermos Smart Lid is priced at $59.99.
