Regular readers of this site should definitely not be surprised to learn that Thermos has announced a “smart bottle” that takes their iconic brand name into a 21st century full of iPhone apps and mobile notifications. It’s the Thermos Smart Lid Hydration Bottle, made in conjunction with EXOS.
The main purpose of the Thermos Smart Lid Hydration Bottle is to help athletes in training formulate and keep track of personalized hydration goals, obviously a worthwhile endeavor from a physical health standpoint. It can also sense how much water is left in the container, as well as if it’s too hot to taste good – less important as far as athlete health goes but still a nice thing to have if you’re drinking a lot of water in an outdoor setting.
The Thermos Smart Lid Hydration Bottle hasn’t shown up yet at the Thermos online store, but you can get more information on the product from Thermos’ press release right here, and stay tuned for additional release details.
