Gatorade’s smart water bottle uses a sweat tracker to help you hydrate better

The Smart Gx Bottle

This is a squeeze bottle that's integrated with technology engineered to assist users set and keep track of their everyday hydration objectives.

The bottle cap features a sensor that computes the amount of liquid in the bottle when you leave it on an even surface. To achieve this, the sensor gauges the gap between it and the top of the water, then deducts that from the total capacity of the bottle. This measurement will be the amount of liquid drunk within a given period.

The Sweat Patch

You stick the sweat patch on your forearm it measures sweat output during a workout.

When the patch is scanned with the Gx app, it can tell you the total amount of fluid loss during a workout session, the rate in which you sweat, and the amount of sodium lost through sweat.

These three metrics are used to calculate your hydration and electrolyte needs. The Gx app records your sweat data as a sweat profile so you don't have to wear another patch again in similar workout conditions.

The Smart Gx Bottle Kit comes with 2 sweat patches and each patch is only for single use.

Additional sweat patches can be purchased separately for $24.99 (for 2 patches).
