A hydration log from one of Bazaarian team members. We had him log his hydration intake for two weeks and after two weeks, we've synced it with how much he should have drank according to the daily temperature, activity level (amount of steps taken and etc.), and with his physical condition.
Thanks to the 100% recyclable materials such as stainless steel bottle lid, the Hydrade is dishwasher safe. Hydrade is also a BPA free sports-grade bottle with a reformulated spout that is now 6X stronger and does not require a liner.
Your habit of staying hydrated today means providing safe water to a person in need tomorrow.
Hydrade is a good cause product; Hence it uses your hydration intake measurements to match donate to those in need of safe water through our non-profit partner organization charity: water
charity: water is a nonprofit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries.
With a radically transparent model that sends 100% of public donations straight to the field, charity: water funds sustainable water projects in areas of greatest need and works with local partners to implement them. The organization proves every project, using innovative technology and powerful storytelling to connect donors with their impact.
Since 2006, charity: water has funded more than 28,000 water projects around the world to help 8.2 million people get access to clean water, hygiene and improved sanitation.

Hydrade uses unique technology between different sensors to differentiate itself from the other smart bottles already in the market.
Current "smart bottles" measure the difference of water volume in the flask using various methods such as measuring strips, proximity sensors, or weight measuring. For Example
- Proximity Sensor Method - With this method, a proximity sensor from the cap to determine how much water has left from the container compared to the previous measurement.
- Measuring Strip Method - With this method, a measuring strip measures water level in the container and uses it to determine the level difference, hence translating it to the hydration intake.
The Method's mentioned above are not efficiently accurate in terms of recording hydration data.
Our technology can determine if you are drinking water or pouring water into the sink. Hydrade uses a set of sensors to take in data. The main sensor would be the water detecting ring on top of the bottle. The bottle records the presence of water when the bottle is tilted as the body of water meets the sensor, but it won’t detect water droplets on the sensor. Then, when the first sensor is triggered by the body of water in the container, it initiates the 9-axis accelerometer to measure its rotation and tilted angle.
Hydrade uses unique solar power cells to automatically charge when the bottle is exposed to illumination. The only time the bottle is not charging is when it is a pitch dark room.
We use unique technology and software to be able to measure water intake using several different sensors, all housed between the cylinders of the double wall insulation.
These different sensors communicate with one another to be able to accurately measure water intake, knowing the difference between when you are drinking water, pouring it out, or drinking water with ice.
A brief demonstration of Hydrade tracking water intake and communicating information to the Hydrade mobile application.
The Hydrade Bottle and App is equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 allowing you easily sync your bottle and mobile app with an automated one-time app guided process.
The app will allow you to stay up-to-date on your daily hydration intake, hydration logs, bottle’s battery status, donation status, and more.
Hydrade has its own app which will be available for iOS and Android devices within the iOS App Store or Android’s Google Play Store.
It’s a great big world out there and we’re all different so we wanted to be able to personalize your experience. The Hydrade app calculates and recommends the proper hydration intake amount according to the user’s environmental climate, weight, height, age, and activity level to keep you hydrated at the level that’s best for you.
Dimensions: 10.38"H x 3.25"W x 3.25"D
Weight: 0.9 lb (Dry Weight)
Bluetooth Range: Approx. 328 ft
Battery Charge Time:
- Environment Dependent - when the bottle is left at exposed to the sunlight on a sunny day (110,000 lux; which is the unit for illuminance), it takes approx. 20 hours for it to fully charge.
- *NOTE - The solar panels operate down to the granular level of 200 lux while the typical overcast day's illuminance arranges from 1000 - 2000 lux. This means the bottle is always charging unless it is kept in the complete darkness.
- Days on 1 Charge: 20 days of usage on full charge (Plan to improve by optimizing software).
- Battery Life: 5+ years
- #304 18/8 Stainless Steel
- Food Grade PP level 5 Plastic

Risks and challenges
Manufacturing Problem: We are a startup based in Seattle. Being a startup means an opportunity to establish a strong relationship with customers. To do so, we must deliver high-quality products. Therefore, it is critically important for us to select top-notch manufacturers. We have built relationships with a hand full of manufacturing partners and have carefully selected facilities in states. All of our bottles are made in the USA with a strict procedure of quality control.
Design Flaws: Building a "double wall insulted smart-bottle" is very exciting. However, these words just used to describe the product potentially bring a major design flaw, and that is a condensation effect. The condensation effect is also known as a sweating effect. It is when the water molecules in the air turn into a liquid form especially on the surface of the glass when a cold liquid is contained in the glass due to the temperature of the glass colder than the air temperature. When the liquid is formed on the surface of the cylinder, it critically threats the circuit system. Therefore, the solution had to be the high-level sealant in between any composing parts.
Donation System: The word bazaar means fundraising sales of goods, typically for charity, hence our brand Bazaarian. Wholeheartedly believing that we can change the world for the better with the products we build comes with great responsibility. To fulfill this challenge, we must be most effective with our donation model as well as satisfying our consumers with the crystal clear transparency. We are dedicated to delivering the full-on experience of the movement changing the world, to make sure that the change won't be done on our own but when we join the movement as a one.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
