The Pryme Vessyl offers new features to stay hydrated
Drinking water is one of the simplest things we do. Pretty much just drink some of that good ole’ H2O and done, hydration. We need it just as much as breathing, and yet most of the time we forget to do it. Water is essential to our health and is what gives us the energy to go on with our day by keeping us hydrated. Water helps speed up your metabolism and prevent a urinary tract, cancer and kidney stones, according to Prevea Health. If one is dehydrated, especially for those students during school, the low intake of water in the body shrinks and pressures the brain, and it will need twice as much time to accomplish a task. The life of a high schooler is busy and most of the time we are moving around from one side of the campus to the other. Water should be a routine habit and the simple eight cups a day does not apply to everyone.
Mark One has designed the smart cup to measure how much water you are drinking and how much more you need to drink to maintain hydration and stay focused as we go on with our daily routine. The cup is called the Pryme Vessyl. This intelligent cup is still in development, although it can be per-ordered in the Apple Store for $99. It is made out of premium materials such as Tritan exterior, durable glass interior, and a polished nickel-plated base. The cup can be used for both hot and cold beverages and holds up to 16 ounces of liquid. The cup has sensors that measure how much water you drink and how quickly, which then in turn gives user-specific results of how much water is needed for the user. The cup paired with the app can give a sipping schedule for the user to stay hydrated.
Juli Anna Clover, writer for an article on the Pryme Vessyl, believes that the cup can be a useful tool for those who don’t drink as much water as they should.
“No product is going to be suitable for everyone, but there are definitely people out there who can significantly benefit from a smart cup that reminds them to get enough liquids.” Clover said.
The Pryme Vessyl factors in your weight, height, biological gender, and activity level to give you the precise amount of water you should be drinking throughout your day and if the needs for your hydration are met. The data that the cup collects from the user is compatible with Jawbone UP, the company that makes the Jawbone UP fitness tracker, and Apple’s Health app through Bluetooth.
When school and work is a constant in the lives of many, we sometimes forget to take care of ourselves and it slips our mind to take in the needed H2O, but this cup may be a solution to that problem.
