It's a busy world we live in. Some days it feels hard to keep up. Did you remember to turn off the stove, to reply to that email, to drink water? What?! Are we really so busy these days we need an app-connected water bottle to remind us to drink water? Seems so. This smart water bottle pairs via Bluetooth with an app on your phone to tell you how much water you've had and how much more you need to drink to reach your goals. It also syncs with your fitness tracker. When you're not drinking enough, the bottle glows. If only our bodies had a way of telling us we are thirsty...

What could happen if something goes wrong?

The app lets you keep an eye on your friends' drinking habits as well as track the location of your water bottle. Aside from weird people tracking you wherever you drink, having your friends shame you for not drinking enough water seems like an anxiety we don't need to introduce into the world.
