Hidrate Spark 2.0 Water Bottle

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...

Shares your information with 3rd parties for unexpected reasons
Yes
Nearly every company collects some kind of information on its users. That’s how the internet works. It’s how they use and care for this information that matters. You should know whether a company shares or sells your personal information to others and for what reasons. For the purpose of this report Mozilla determined that if according to a company’s privacy policy, it appeared to share data with third parties that could then use that information to market or advertise to customers, then we labeled it as “Shares information with third parties for unexpected reasons.” This does not mean your information is definitely used for these purposes. Simply that the policy leaves the possibility open your information could be used in this way.

What could happen if something went 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.
