Raise your hand if this sounds familiar: You’ve had so much coffee in the morning that you’re now smelling colors, but not enough water during the day that you’ve become the dreaded “wilted flower.” Instead of playing the never-ending guessing game of how much coffee and water you’ve had throughout the day, now there’s the new Ozmo Active Smart Cup that will help you track and control both your water and coffee intake in one sleek, high-tech spot.
How the Ozmo works
The Ozmo is a 16oz BPA-free cup that syncs with its own app (iOS and Android) to wirelessly track and record your caffeine and water intake. This high-tech cup comes in four colors and can be used with, or without, the Ozmo app but I recommend the free app since you can customize your daily intake goals to fit your life and activity levels.
First thing in the morning, I filled my Ozmo cup with my coffee and when I was done, rinsed and filled with my water, refilling it throughout the day. The completely spill-proof lid made it a cinch to throw in my diaper bag for on-the-go convenience. When I was slacking on my water drinking, the cup vibrated to remind me to take a sip! While I was certainly excited about this feature initially, it became a double edged sword as I used Ozmo. The vibrating alert was a nice reminder and got me drinking more water. However, there is (so far) no way to turn this feature off and while I was out of town, my husband wandered around for two whole days wondering what in the world was making that noise.
Pros and cons
Aside from not being able to turn off the reminders (which I’m told they are working on for the next update), this is a pretty great cup if you’re looking for help with meeting your hydration goals. At $79, it’s definitely on the pricier side for a water bottle, regardless of the abilities, and the external size is quite large for the small internal 16 oz capacity. It’s understandable since there is a ton of tech at the bottom of the cup but don’t expect this to fit into your car’s cup holder and for sure not on your stroller (definitely not dishwasher safe). But if you’re the type of person that just needs a little helpful reminder, then this will be worth the money. You body and skin will thank you!
The Ozmo Active Smart Cup works via Bluetooth and syncs to both iOS and Android operating systems, as well as, Fitbit and Apple Health and retails for $79.
