The story of Seed, an intelligent water bottle that helps users monitor their daily water intake, starts with an illness. A wife of Seed’s creator, Xiaoliang Li, suffered from kidney stones as a result of her bad drinking habits. Xiaoliang quickly realized that she’s not alone. In fact, research shows that 75% of Americans may suffer from chronic dehydration. Why would people with an abundant access to drinkable water be dehydrated? Because they are so busy going about their daily lives that they simply forget to drink.
That’s where Seed comes to the rescue. This stylish water bottle packs modern technology that can regularly remind users to take a sip, thus forming healthy habits that will stick even when the bottle isn’t around.
This sleek bottle is available in 12 different colors and 3 sizes. The smallest has a capacity of 12oz (350ml) and can easily fit into any bag or purse. The largest holds up to 17oz (500ml) of water and is best suited for sports activities and daily use.
Seed is made out of premium Japanese stainless steel and a copper inlay. The result is a durable construction that is pleasantly lightweight and can keep the temperature of the liquid inside for a very long time.
Seed is smart enough to monitor your water consumption on its own. When you unscrew the lid, the device will display the temperature of the water and warn you in case it’s too old to drink. A special air-elastic water tracking technology measures how much water is missing and uploads this data to the standalone application. When the bottle detects that you haven’t drunk for a while, it will give you a reminder to ensure that you always stay properly hydrated.
The built-in 2000 mAh battery provides enough juice for 1 year of continuous use without any charging. This means that you can always count on the bottle being ready for another day of use.
Lovers of hot beverages will also appreciate that the temperature sensor is smart enough to know when the beverage is too hot to drink and warn you before you burn your tongue.
All data are sent via Bluetooth 4.0 to one of many compatible applications. These include Apple Health, Fitbit, UP by jawbone, and others.
