About this project
Ensure you're drinking enough water to meet your health, wellness, fitness, and weight loss goals with the world’s most convenient and accurate smart water bottle! AquaGenie’s ingenious design tracks your water consumption, reports it wirelessly to its app or to your Fitbit or Apple Health dashboard, wirelessly recharges, and is durable, washable and easy to use. AquaGenie sets your water consumption goals and lights up to remind you to meet them, even adjusting your goals if your activity or the weather suggests you should drink more.
AquaGenie is your daily companion that keeps you on track and fully hydrated, helping you achieve all your health, wellness, fitness and weight loss goals! Attractive, durable, easy to wash and easy to use, your AquaGenie tracks your consumption, reports it to most fitness apps, and goes with you everywhere.
The AquaGenie bottle knows your daily water goal and how much you've had to drink. To keep you on track, when it sees you're behind, a glowing ring at the base of the bottle lights up to remind you to take a sip. It's that simple!
Our integrated sensor technology is accurate, reliable and measures at any angle, any time. Take a look at the integrated sensor in action!
To recharge, just place it on its stand for an hour and you’re good to go for a week! No wires, no batteries to change, no need to set it still to take a measurement.
AquaGenie goes with you everywhere and easily replaces your old water bottle!
The free iOS and Android application make keeping track of your daily water intake easy. The application is the hub for all of the information that helps you better understand your body and hydration levels.
The application is interactive and easily lets you see your history from the past days, weeks or months. This information helps you better understand the effects water has on your body, mood, weight and energy. We will also help you meet all your goals by suggesting updated water goals when you are more active or conditions have changed. You can even check your progress without the app. Just give AquaGenie a shake and the glowing ring shows red-yellow-green to tell you if you’re on track.
There are an abundance of fitness and weight loss apps and trackers out there that help you keep tabs on your activity, calories, health and more - we’ve downloaded more than a billion of these apps. Fitbit, Garmin, Apple Health, Samsung S Health, and MyFitnessPal all help us stay fit and on track.
That’s why we wanted to make sure AquaGenie is compatible with the most popular wearables and apps on the market. All you have to do is connect your AquaGenie to your fitness tracking or weight loss app, and our patent-pending technology does the work for you. Never worry about remembering to manually input your data every day again.
AquaGenie is the first TRULY wireless and wire free smart water bottle. Other Bluetooth water bottles require you to recharge using an open USB port on the bottle, or use watch batteries that require you to periodically disassemble the bottle, remove and replace with new ones. With AquaGenie, you never need to worry about cords or batteries. Just set AquaGenie on the included wireless re-charging stand, and in 60 minutes, you’re good for the week!
Since AquaGenie does not have any charging ports, wires or moving parts, going on adventures and washing your AquaGenie is extremely easy.
AquaGenie is fully immersible and washable to keep your bottle clean and germ-free!
Make sure children and elderly loved ones are staying hydrated! As we get older, our sense of thirst decreases, making the elderly more susceptible to dehydration. And we all know children don't pay attention! With AquaGenie, you can easily keep tabs on their hydration stats and goals through the AquaGenie app and they get reminders through the day to take a sip!
Bottle Design: How We Made The AquaGenie
Take a deeper look into the “genie’s workshop” to see just how much hard work went into creating the AquaGenie you love! Everyone knows all good products start with a “napkin sketch”. Take a look at some of our initial sketches that show the different styles, sizes and shapes we thought about offering.
After we narrowed down the selection of sketches we liked, we started to work on shapes for the bottle and what type of lid to use. Check out some of the ideas we played around with.
Once we had these sketches finalized, we explored volumes and turned the sketches into CAD drawings to understand sizing, details and to learn more about the mechanics of the bottle. Images of this can be seen in update #3.
Once the renderings were all set and approved, we started to print the 3D models and parts, which eventually lead us to the amazing bottle we have today.
Circuit Board Design
Take a look at “the brains of the bottle” below! Here you’ll see how we take AquaGenie way beyond the traditional water bottle that you can get at the store today.
Below you can see how the processing logic will flow on the board and how all the pieces will connect and talk to each other:
Once the circuit boards were fitted to the bottle and printed, the components were placed onto the board and the firmware was written to make it all work together!

Risks and challenges
As with any technology product, there are risks and challenges associated with the launch and deployment of our product. However, we have built working prototypes of all components as well as the integrated whole and proven the technology works as promised. We are working with top engineers, manufacturers and suppliers to provide you with the most advanced, accurate, durable and user-friendly smart water bottle you have ever seen. Thanks for being some of our FIRST supporters! We couldn’t do it without you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
