Danone's Font Vella launches smart cap to prompt healthy hydration

Related tags: Danone, Spain, Bottled water

Danone will add a special smart cap to its Font Vella natural mineral water brand, which will track users’ water intake and encourage them to keep sufficiently hydrated.

The ‘Coach2O’ cap will be launched on the Spanish market in the spring, and is being developed in partnership with water.io, a smart packaging company.

More than 50% of the Spanish population fails to hydrate adequately, says Danone.

Coach2O is a clip that covers the bottle’s cap – contact with water is avoided – and sensors in the clip record how much water has been drunk.

If the device believes that water intake is insufficient, it reminds its user with a ‘discreet series of blinks’.

Coach2O is accompanied by an app, allowing users to personalize water intake around a daily hydration goal, daily routines and workouts. It also presents information on healthy hydration habits.
