    For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Hidrate to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an iPhone-connected Hidrate Spark 2.0 water bottle that's designed to keep track of how much water you're drinking each day.

    First created as a Kickstarter project, the Hidrate water bottle has been around since 2015, but it's on its second version, the Spark 2.0. The Hidrate Spark 2.0, available in a range of candy colors, features a stylish design, an easy-sip top, and a sensor that's able to detect whenever you take a sip.


    The Spark 2.0 connects to an app on your iPhone via Bluetooth so you can keep track of what you've consumed in the accompanying app, which allows you to make sure you're meeting your daily hydration needs. It uses a replaceable battery so you don't need to worry about charging.


    In addition to tracking how much you drink, the Spark 2.0 lets you know when you need to take a drink through a built in glow feature that comes on when it's been awhile since the last sip. You can set your own hydration goal in the app and link up with friends so you can motivate each other to drink more water.


    The app maintains a log of what you've consumed over time, and if you lose your bottle, you can see its last known location on a map. All of the data collected by the Spark syncs to the Apple Health app on the iPhone.

    The Hidrate Spark 2.0 water bottles are available from the Hidrate website for $45, but we have five to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winner and send the prize. You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page.

    Due to the complexities of international laws regarding giveaways, only U.S. residents who are 18 years of age or older are eligible to enter. To offer feedback or get more information on the giveaway restrictions, please refer to our Site Feedback section, as that is where discussion of the rules will be redirected.

    The contest will run from today (June 16) at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time through 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time on June 23. The winners will be chosen randomly on June 23 and will be contacted by email. The winners will have 48 hours to respond and provide a shipping address before new winners are chosen.

    The surprising thing about this product is that it is on its second itteration. That seems to imply that people bought it, and/or people invested in it.

    No, it’s to ensure that you’re drinking as much water as you should each day.

    Because drinking more water helps you eat smaller portions and is generally just good for you, and water intake can be pivotal when attempting to lose weight.

    What are the specs for the iPhone that the Hidrate Spark 2.0 Water Bottle is evidently connected to?

    I use this product called Remembering to Drink Water. It's from the developer of Noticing You're Thirsty and of course the classic Being Aware Of Sensations In Your Body.

    Still waiting for my iPhone connected toilet with the bowel movement app that keeps track of the size and frequency of my bowel movements and alerts me when it's time to take another dump.

    As someone who just had a large kidney stone due to not drinking enough water this thing sounds awesome. I actually just bought one because I like the idea so much.

    Would you and your friends hold a compootition?

    Or you could use your iPhone's reminders to remind you every 4 hours to drink half a liter.

    How did we survive millennia without an app to remind us to drink water?

    Replace with beer. Follow recommendations. Then they need a "share your results" feature so you can challenge your friend.

    In the core of a black hole.
    I think I commented last time when you had the 1.0 version, *Still stupid, and, the design sucks too besides it being too big.

    * Who TF needs this, a simple reminder on your iPhone will do the trick.

    I think they should make the water bottle a little bit bigger....I've always wanted to carry around a bucket to quench my thirst!

    In that one place
    15 years ago at the county fair I got a free 1/2 liter water bottle. It has the local saving energy slogan on the side.

    When I'm done chugging water, iced tea/coffee or whatever, I just chuck it in the dishwasher. Who the hell pays $50 for water bottle that can only take water? The faq says anything else can damage it.
