Need a digital assistant to help you drink water? Here are five.


Eight to ten glasses of water a day. It’s been drummed into you for so long that it’s hard to forget. But does it make it easier to follow? No. Despite being convinced about the importance of hydrating oneself, more importantly in summer, most of us need to be nudged to drink a glass of water every so often.  Not even the prospect of catching up on interesting gossip at the water cooler seems enough of a carrot. Well, there’s an app for that and you should have known it. Sit down with a glass of water and read on.

The best thing about this app is that it allows you to select your motivators for reminding you to drink water. It also boosts you once you have hit your drinking goal. Like a loyal friend, it also tips and tells you each day how far you are from your goal, besides giving your reminders, tracking your water intake etc.
