5 of the Best-Looking Ways to Drink More Water
Better skin. A revved-up metabolism. Filling up on water comes with endless benefits, not the least of which include an excuse to grab a cool-looking bottle to keep it in. Here are five genius styles to reach for.
Former San Francisco lawyers Tal Winter and Kate Cutler created the cult-loved Bkr to bridge the gap between hydration and eye candy. We'd say they succeeded: When it comes to good-looking bottles, Bkr styles are as essential and quirky names and juicy backstories make them equally fun to shop. Between the opaque blackberry Lolita ("inspired by yesterday's eye makeup that looks even better this morning") and the double-sized, 1-liter Bellini ("inspired by the mornings when blush is your lifesaver after a sleepless night, poached eggs with hash browns and top-shelf coffee poured in fluorescent pink mugs"), they read like the perfect (water) drinking partner. $30 and up
In one of the best-looking Kickstarter campaigns out there, HIDRATEME is a functional water bottle that lights up when it’s time to re-hydrate. A built-in sensor stick automatically tracks how much you guzzle throughout the day, sends a prompt to an app on your phone and glows when you need to refill. Since HIDRATEME has already surpassed its funding goals, you can expect product delivery starting this winter. $39 and up
Ideal for those who can't fathom the idea of drinking plain old H20. Four different styles allow for the water to be fruit-infused to add healthy elements along with your daily hydration. With the small, 7-ounce version, a strainer is built into the flip top; ]for the larger 16-ounce bottle, a strainer is built into the detachable (easy to reassemble) middle. definebottle.com, $9.99 and up
Fashionably saving the world from the damage of the 50 million plastic bottles dumped in landfills each year, S’well has been hydrating the eco- and style-conscious since 2010. During this time, they've consistently donated a portion of each sale to charity (with $100,000 to UNICEF) to provide clean water to children in more than 100 countries. However noble the cause is, S’well bottles' design claim to fame is keeping chilled drinks ice-cold for 24 hours and hot drinks piping for up to 12. Practically perfect. $25 and up
Bobble is looking to dominate the filtered water scene, one $9.99 water bottle and $19.99 pitcher at a time. With an activated carbon filter built right in, each BP-free Water Bobble can be refilled up to 300 times before the filter needs to be replaced. $9.99
