Gatorade Squeeze Bottle
About this deal
Some smart water bottles, like LARQ’s Bottle, have self-cleaning features that can eliminate up to 99.99 percent of bacteria from water before you drink it. Certain bottles will even activate this feature automatically, so you can be confident your water will always be clean and taste great. Self-cleaning bottles are usually on the more expensive side, however. The battery on this smart water bottle lasts around one month on a full charge. We like that it’s durable, since it’s designed to travel with you everywhere you go. Although it’s one of the most expensive bottles on our list, you do get a sleek, tough smart water bottle that looks good and is built to last. To use the bottle’s self-cleaning function, simply fill it up with water, press the cap, and wait. UV-C LED technology kills off harmful bacteria inside, like E.coli. If you forget to push the button yourself, not to worry—LARQ’s Bottle will automatically clean your water every two hours anyway.
We researched over 30 smart water bottles from the most trusted and popular retailers. We considered size, weight, materials, price, durability, smart features, capacity, and more. First, we spoke with Lori Ann Peterson, a retired pediatric nurse and owner of Story Of Lori, and Meghan Novoshielski, MS, RDN,a registered dietitian, to get their opinion on which features to look for when shopping for smart water bottles. They also helped us understand why it’s important to stay hydrated, what the benefits of a smart water bottle are, and how many times a smart water bottle can be reused. Smart water bottles are usually made from plastic or stainless steel. Although plastic has some benefits (it’s usually cheaper and more lightweight), we prefer smart water bottles made from stainless steel. That is because it’s more durable and can insulate your water, while plastic bottles can’t.

Unlike regular water bottles, smart water bottles are “incredibly versatile for anyone who wants to ensure they’re getting the recommended daily amount of fluids. Features include reminders, built-in temperature gauges, and LED lighting that tells you when it’s time for a refill,” Lori Ann Peterson, a retired pediatric nurse, says. Carbohydrate fuels athletic performance but high-intensity exercise depletes these stores. Failure to maintain carbohydrate stores can have a negative effect on performance. Through 50 years' experience working with athletes on the field and in our labs, we have developed a 6% carbohydrate plus electrolyte formula to enhance the absorption of fluid during exercise.
While this bottle is only available in one, 17-ounce size, we appreciate that the battery lasts up to seven days on a single charge. Carbohydrate-electrolyte solutions contribute to the maintenance of endurance performance during prolonged endurance exerciseYour body sweats to cool itself down. When this happens, you don't just lose water, but also vital electrolytes such as sodium, potassium and chloride. The electrolytes in Gatorade help to replace the electrolytes lost in sweat. This becomes particularly important when exercising for prolonged periods of time or in hot and humid climates As an athlete, you need to maintain your performance during exercise. Carbohydrate-electrolyte solutions such as Gatorade have been scientifically proven to help maintain endurance performance during prolonged endurance exercise by replacing fluids and replenishing electrolytes.
