Thermos’ expertise is safely storing and preserving foods and liquids, not the technology needed to realize a smart bottle. So for its new Thermos Connected Hydration Bottle with Smart Lid it teamed up with a company called iDevices LLC for the electronics and an accompanying app, and to help develop the software’s hydration calculator to ensure that athletes, and the rest of us, all stay properly hydrated.
You almost certainly don't need the Thermos Connected Hydration Bottle. It's rather pricey, and the lack of Android support is frustating. But if you're a health and fitness junkie with an eye on self quantification, the Thermos basically works as advertised. It might miss a sip here and there, but it will provide you with a detailed look at your daily water intake, and measure it out over time. So while the need to drink eight glasses remains debatable, the Thermos will make sure you have no problem getting there.

You should drink eight glasses of water a day. Although there's no scientific proof to this theory, that seems like a reasonable precaution to take in the name of good health. But unless you record every single glass of water you drink, how do you know that you're actually reaching this goal each day? The Thermos Connected Hydration Bottle with Smart Lid solves this by keeping track for you. The Thermos is a 24-ounce bottle with a Bluetooth-connected lid that automatically measures your liquid intake. For serious quantification junkies with $59.99 to spare, it's the ultimate water bottle. For everyone else willing to live dangerously (as well as Android users, who aren't supported), a plain old cup should be just fine.
The Thermos Connected Hydration Bottle with Smart Lid features a rechargeable, lithium-ion battery that will hold a charge for up to 12 days. The product will retail starting at $89.99 and will be available for purchase at retailers such as London Drugs, Amazon and Walmart.
