Water bottles. You think you know them. But these bland containers have gotten some serious makeovers over the last few years. From basic Nalgene, to cool colours, unique materials and even tech smarts, water bottles are the accessory that can match your personality and your lifestyle just as much as your smart watch or your jewelry. Take a look at these cool bottles to see what’s new.

Aquio by iHome water bottle-speaker

The Aquio Bottle is a 16-ounce double-walled stainless-steel water bottle combined that has been combined with removable Bluetooth speaker. The speaker screws into the bottom of the bottle so it’s more easily portable. The bottle is BPA-free and it promises to keep drinks hot up to 14 hours, or cold for 24 hours. It’s a perfect companion for a cyclist, hiker or golfer who also like to keep the tunes going.

DrinKup Smart Water Bottle

DrinKup is a stainless steel, double walled, insulating water bottle, not unlike some of the premium steel bottles you can get from many stores. What makes this one different is the smarts. 

Inside the bottle’s lid are sensors that can tell how much water you’re drinking, what the water temperature is, and when paired with the companion app, it can deliver reminders to drink your water, via the smart lid (an icon and vibrating alert), to your phone or to your Apple Watch. It can be used for cold drinks, like water or for hot drinks, like tea. It’ll send you alerts to your phone or smart watch reminding you to drink up if you’re the type that doesn’t drink enough water.

Sip by Swell water bottles & travel mug

These are kind of basic when it comes to water bottles, but they look great and are fun. I was able to get hands on with two new styles; a thermos-style cylinder dubbed the Sip by Swell Travel Mug and a triangular shaped Water Bottle. They come in cool colours and patterns so your bottle will stand out from the crowd. They’re also double wall insulated so they have the ability to stay cold or hot for hours.

After taking my coffee in the 16 oz Travel Mug with locking lid I was hooked. With its sleek design, soft colour and strong construction, it keeps my coffee hot until I get time to drink it at work; usually an hour and a half after I fill it. The coffee stays pretty warm inside too until it’s done; often about 3 hours after filling.[amazon_link asins=’B01E9ATEN0,B07C9VMCW9,B01M2XQB9Z,B07F6HWYQP’ template=’ProductCarousel’ store=’techgadcanada-20′ marketplace=’CA’ link_id=’de2efda7-c60a-48cf-af33-71f710a5fadf’]

water bottle, hydaway, hideaway, review

Hydaway collapsible silicone bottle

This genius bottle is perfect for frequent flyers, backpackers, or RVers. It folds flat for easy storage, it’s ultra light weight yet it’s durable. If you like bringing water on the plane, you can breeze through airport security with this bottle, then fill it up on the other side. The Hydaway collapses down to a slim 1.5 inch profile, plus you can toss it in the dishwasher to clean it. The wide mouth makes it easy to hand wash too, and lets you easily add things like lemon slices, cucumber, or ice to your water.
