It should go without saying that everyone needs to drink enough water every day to stay healthy. Too busy to remember to drink enough water? The Hug can help. This is a sensor + app solution that tracks your water intake and helps you achieve optimal hydration. Just slip it around your water bottle, connect it to your iOS device, and you are ready to track your water intake. Using motion data and its algorithms, the Hug Sensor tracks your drinks and reminds you to drink more.
The companion app calculates your hydration base rate according to gender, age, and weight. It pulls real-time activity data from APIs of Fitbit and RunKeeper to show you the optimal water intake amount. It uses notifications and band LED prompts to help you stay on track. The Hug API is currently under development. The companion app currently works on iOS devices, but the developers are open to developing an Android app for the Hug. You can support this project on Kickstarter.
