Drink Reminders for Android and Iphone

Drink Reminders for Android and Iphone

Water is the most essential element to life on earth. Water is needed by all the body cells and organs in order for them to function properly. It is also important for the lubrication of the joints, protection of the spinal cord and other tissues, regulation of our body temperature and assistance of the passage of food through the intestines.

We have to remind ourselves that we practically loose water by the body in every activity we do. Might it be through heavy physical activity, while sleeping, even while breathing, our body releases water as sweat and urine.

And loosing this water, we have to replenish our body. I am such a lazy person when it comes to drinking liquid, especially water. I drink liquid whenever I feel like, but not faithfully. A week ago, I read on the internet a claim that “we die of thirst” and do not even know it. We “neglect” our body’s need of replenishing our cells, organs, joints and brain. I knew that water is important, but you and I have to be constantly reminded that we MUST drink water several time over the day and in an adequate amount.

So, I wonder, what is that right, adequate amount. According to the Institute of Medicine (IOM), an adequate intake for men is approximately 13 cups (3 liters) a day. For women, an adequate intake is around 9 cups (2.2 liters). Oh boy, 9 cups, at least. The more that we are living in Davao City – an all-year tropical climate.

I thought of my eldest sister Kerstin who has the most hectic lifestyle than anybody in our family (check out at her website Freshrolls and Champaign and you learn why), who uses applications on her Iphone 5s that send her reminders to drink water in a certain moment.

So for a week, I have been trying out different applications on water reminders and felt that Hydro Coach, Water Drink Reminder and Aqualert Water Reminder H2O are the best in terms of:
A. fulfilling its purpose of establishing a habit of drinking water
B. user-friendly
b. keeps track of records
c. great layout/interface
d. no/few pop-up advertisements
