Font Vella, Danone’s Spanish natural mineral water brand, has recently announced the upcoming launch of Coach2O, a device that tracks water intake and coaches people toward adequate hydration. The product is being developed in partnership with water.io, an innovative start-up specialised in smart packaging.
Packed with sensors, Coach2O is a clip that covers the existing bottle cap – ensuring no contact between the water and the device – and records the volume of water taken in by its user. If need be, Coach2O reminds its user to drink via discreet series of blinks. The app companion connected to the clip brings a more personalised experience, with features such as daily hydration goal setting, adjusted to individual parameters and daily routine like workouts.
