TAIPEI -- If you tend to find yourself with parched lips and your doctor nagging you to drink more fluids, this smart water bottle from Singaporean company Oaxis may be just the thing you need.
Besides keeping track of how much water you drink, Oaxis also plans to put in sensors to detect the temperature and purity of the liquid, as well as how much is left. The idea is to make it really easy for you keep up your water intake. Being able to detect the quality of the water seems like a good idea too, especially if you drink from the tap.
The data will probably be shown at the bottom of the bottle (though this being a mockup, it was just a piece of paper) and synced to an app on your phone.
While the water bottle was obviously not ready, an Oaxis spokesperson explained that the vessel was just one part of the company's new health ecosystem. This includes a fitness band called the Star 21, an app called LifeBalanz (yes, with a "z"), and a Bluetooth-powered smart weighing scale called the Glo that's capable of tracking your body fat.
There's no firm pricing for its products just yet, but Oaxis plans to launch a campaign on crowdfunding site Pozible in the next month or so. It will have a package deal that will price each product at roughly $47 (which converts to around £30 or AU$60).
