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.
