Personalised advertising may be considered a “sale” or “sharing” of information under California and other state privacy laws, and you may have a right to opt out. That required a familiar-looking bottle with a lot under the hood: sensors, embedded microprocessors, LED indicators track your progress towards your daily hydration goal, batteries, and wireless connectivity—seamlessly integrated, and waterproof. The latest tech to hit the market is Gatroade’s Smart Gx Bottle — a water bottle that uses Bluetooth technology and LED lights to track your hydration data.

Partnerships with pro sports teams and elite sports academies allowed Smart Design technologists to prototype, test and revise the design—eight iterations in total—under tough, realistic conditions.If you’re dehydrated on the start line, the same running coach used to say, no matter how much you drink on the course, you won’t be running at your best. If the bottle appears sealed tightly and has no obvious visible off-color or odor when opened, there’s no reason why it cannot be consumed past the recommended usage date on the neck of each bottle. Drew Palin, Senior Director of Innovation at Gatorade told Tom's Guide, "A limited run of Smart Gx Bottles did not meet our production quality standards.

Based on the recommendations from the European Food Safety Authority, a zero-calorie beverage doesn’t meet the criteria of a sports drink. We do not recommend reusing our bottles because they cannot be properly sterilized or washing in a hot water cycle of a dishwasher as the plastic may distort and/or shrink. Where we’ve really amplified the design is within the Gx Smart Bottle cap, which completes the Gx ecosystem. During testing, it didn’t take long for the competitive athlete in me to start trying to beat the light on the top of the bottle. Last year, Gatorade launched its single use Sweat patches — a product that determines your unique sweat profile to give you a deeper insight into how much liquid you’re losing during workouts.We take intellectual property concerns very seriously, but many of these problems can be resolved directly by the parties involved. I drink a lot of water on a good day — as a fitness editor and runner, I’m pretty active, but until testing this bottle, my water intake hasn’t ever been something I’ve actively tracked (except for when I drank a gallon of water a day for a month). Gatorade says the Gx smart bottle syncs with the Gx app every 30-60 seconds to keep track of your hydration progress.

Explore a collection of stainless steel water bottles and come with lids to keep your drinks safe from contamination. Checking my hydration became something I did a few times a day, and it’s not something I’ve ever been concerned about before.But as a fitness editor, it’s always cool to see lab-based tech being turned into products for consumers, as whether you’re an athlete or an amateur, you still care about being the best you can be in your sport. By observing how a prototype worked on the field, and interviewing players and coaches to get fine-grained reactions, we could then modify, update, and iterate.

It looks like a typical sports bottle, with a small magnetic charging port and a single waterproof button on the cap. Etsy’s 100% renewable electricity commitment includes the electricity used by the data centres that host Etsy. As you drink, internal sensors measure each sip and update the LEDs, tracking your consumption in comparison with recommended hydration. Once you’ve refilled the water bottle, the lights on the bottle flash blue once the bottle has recalibrated.It’s the heart of an ecosystem that positions Gatorade as a leading innovator in athletic performance. It’s a training tool, like the move notifications on your fitness tracker, or the rings on your Apple Watch, that remind you to keep on top of something it’s easy to neglect. That said, as they are single-use patches, it would be unfair to assume consumers would be using these every time they workout. As well as keeping an eye on your hydration, the app also has a number of training programs, devised by well-known athletes. During my work days, I found I often beat these reminders — sitting behind a laptop screen, I’ll find any excuse to procrastinate, and it turns out filling my water bottle is a good one.
