The LCD touchscreen inside the lid will display the drink's temperature (ranging from 60°F to 300°F ). When the temperature reaches high enough values (~150 degrees or more), the screen will light up red to prevent you from burning the fingers/mouth. You can set up reminders and the bottle will tell you when it is time to hydrate.

The bottle dents fairly easily.

PYRUS HoLead Smart Water Bottle is as smart as these bottles get. In fact, the product has no business being this smart. Comparing this device to standard water bottles is an insult that'd demand satisfaction. Plus, the battery easily lasts 30 days. In short, this is the best water bottle on this list.

PYRUS HoLead

Bottles Shouldn't be This Smart

PYRUS HoLead Smart Water Bottle is as smart as these bottles get.

When you touch the smart lid, the LCD touchscreen inside the lid will display the drink's temperature (ranging from 60°F to 300°F ). This thumbnail screen will always let you check whether the contents are warm, hot, or cold.

When the temperature reaches high enough values (~150 degrees or more), the screen will light up red to prevent you from burning the fingers/mouth.

You can set up reminders and the bottle will tell you when it is time to hydrate.

The battery's no joke too. It usually takes 90 minutes to recharge and easily lasts for 30 days.

As far as the bottle's build is concerned, the silica gel pads on the bottom prevent the bottle from slipping/skidding around and protect this bottle from fall damage. The leakproof lid will make sure you can drop the bottle inside the bag without worrying about leakage.

The insulated stainless steel base will have no issues keeping drinks hot/cold for 12/24 hours respectively. That base is pretty thin though, so the bottle dents fairly easily. The finish's dustproof and splashproof though.

Long story short, PYRUS HoLead Smart Water Bottle has no business being this smart. Comparing this device to standard water bottles is an insult that'd demand satisfaction. In other words, this is probably the best water bottle on this list.

Hidrate Spark 3.0

Glowing Bright

Hidrate Spark 3.0 Smart Water Bottle is pretty smart too.

There's this sensor inside the bottle that tracks your intake every time you take the slightest sip, transferring the information to the free hydration Hidrate Spark app (available on Android and iOS) via the Bluetooth module.

The app then carefully calculates exactly how much hydration the person requires and, with its seamless integration with most fitness trackers, adjusts the daily water goals to the individual's daily activity level.

Besides the app, what sets this product apart from its competition is the glowing reminder that illuminates the entire bottle reminding you to drink more water. You can set these reminders to activate at regular intervals or when you're behind on your daily hydration goals. Plus, you can choose between three light patterns, making the bottle stand out even more.

You won't be replacing the batteries all too often as the Bluetooth Low-Energy tech enables the bottle to make one CR2477" battery last for months.

Build-wise, the BPA-free bottle incorporates this smooth silicone sleeve that works like gangbusters improving the grip and minimizing condensation.

Cutting to the chase, Hidrate Spark 3.0 Smart Water Bottle juggles high-tech solutions with basic implementations as well as the next smart bottle. With this bottle, you'll stay hydrated no matter how busy the schedule gets. Plus, the bottle fits standard cupholders, backpack pockets, and bike bottle cages.

ICEWATER 3-in-1 20 oz

Takes One to Glow One

ICEWATER 3-in-1 20 oz Smart Stainless Steel Water Bottle is that funny gift that turns out to be shockingly helpful. With this bottle, you will absolutely stay hydrated.

First and foremost, this is as much a water bottle as it is a Bluetooth speaker. The 5-watt speaker is surprisingly loud and clear. The sound comes out 360 degrees, so you'll be able to put this bottle/speaker wherever and enjoy the music on the go.

The modular design will let you separate the speaker's controls from the bottle and easily clean the bottle.

You can set this vacuum bottle to play music to remind you that you should be drinking water right now. You can also set the bottle to start glowing to achieve the same effect with different methods.

Lastly, you can set the bottle to produce strong basses (make sure to use the bass function only on wooden surfaces). The bottle's not especially well-balanced and the bottom hasn't been equipped with non-slip padding, so the chances that the bottle will fall and damage the circuits are relatively high.

Apart from that, ICEWATER 3-in-1 20 oz Smart Stainless Steel Water Bottle is the most versatile and complete product on this list. The housing's water-resistant. You can bring this bottle/speaker to parties, yoga, to the beach, gym, hiking, camping, running, you can even shower with this thing.

H2OPal 2AET-B1

Personalized Hydration Goals

H2OPal 2AET-B1 Smart Water Bottle Hydration Tracker is not dumb, we can definitely say this much.

Equipped with this smart sensor, the bottle tracks your hydration and sends reminders to, well, remind you that you should probably be drinking water right now. You can personalize these notifications or use standard metrics.

Synching with the company's H2OPal application, the bottle provides customized hydration goals, measuring and encouraging progress over time.

The app's as intuitive and easy-to-use as they come. The only problem is that the app is incompatible with Android phones and only available for iOS.

As far as we're concerned, the bottle's smart tech is the second most impressive thing about this product. First, oddly enough, is the bottle's composition. More specifically, the Borosilicate glass that makes the bottle tough, durable, lightweight, and surprisingly practical.

Generally speaking, glass bottles are pretty slippery but these silicone bands will let you easily grab and hold the bottle with wet hands.

All things considered, H2OPal 2AET-B1 Smart Water Bottle Hydration Tracker is an excellent smart water bottle for home and office use. The premium glass preserves water's fresh taste better than any material.

Thermos 24 Ounce

Hydration Calculator

Thermos 24-Ounce Hydration Bottle is up there with the smartest water bottles.

The bottle's smart lid measures your liquid intake, all while providing real-time temperature readings. After that, the company's Thermos Smart Lid app will use the Hydration Calculator to provide optimal hydration goals based on the user's personal data. You can use the app to chart and graph daily, weekly, and/or monthly hydration progress. The smart lid's also compatible with the Fitbit app.

At the same time, the activity dashboard will provide information regarding the current liquid level in the bottle, the drink's temperature, and the progress you're making towards the daily goal that the Hydration Calculator has assigned you.

Setting the smart tech aside, the bottle's pretty standard. The BPA-free Tritan construction makes the bottle sturdy and durable enough so you won't have to worry about dropping the bottle. The mouthpiece cover will keep things hygienic. The built-in rechargeable battery lasts 12 days tops, which is passable at best compared to other bottles within this lineup.

In short, Thermos 24-Ounce Hydration Bottle is an excellent sports and hiking bottle. The bottle's 24-ounce capacity will let you last the entire workout. The bottle's dishwasher safe too.

What Is a Water Bottle?

Water bottles come in different shapes (well, somewhat different) and sizes but there's one thing we can say for sure: these things are absolutely necessary because regular plastic bottles are killing the planet. Besides, these bottles are much more practical than standard plastic ones.

First and foremost, good water bottles usually come equipped with some locking mechanism that makes sure these bottles don't accidentally open.

Apart from that, some models incorporate double-wall insulation, meaning that they're able to keep the drinks hot and cold for much longer than standard bottles.

Sometimes, these water bottles come fitted with some built-in straw, letting you drink on the go without slowing down.

Other times, these bottles feature spouts that enable you to take small gulps and removable caps with wide mouthes to let you quickly and easily fill the bottle without spillage.

Besides that, pay attention to the materials behind these things and things like handles/straps that you can use to carry the bottle differently.

Occasionally, these water bottles incorporate smart high-tech solutions to help you stay hydrated.

Bottle warmers work wonders with these water bottles, by the way. Sometimes though, travel mugs are better.
