The HYDRA: SmartBottle

We read everywhere about making sure we’re hydrated and so the sales of water go through the roof, sales of bottles goes through the roof and everyone’s happy, they’re making money and we feel healthier because we’ve enough liquids in our bodies.

The only room in the market is for bottles with something different, they need that unique difference to set them apart and that’s what Sirus Ahmadi is trying to do with his new Hydra Smart Bottle, he’s launched it on indiegogo as a crowdfunded project and he’s nearly 1000% funded so there’s a lot of people that are liking it.

We’ve been discussing here at Outdoor Revival HQ if we should get on to try out, we’ll let you know if we do.


Here’s some information from the Indiegogo page:

The future is upon us! Thanks to affordable quality electronics, we can have previously single-function objects become multifunction! We are here to take our completed, manufactured prototype through its final design phase. We need your help!

What is it?

The once mundane ‘water bottle’ has been transformed to be so much more!

When you’re on the go, lugging around all your favorite gear can be restricting. Being light and agile means leaving good stuff behind. But not anymore! Introducing a brand new category – the SmartBottle!



The HYDRA is looking out for YOU:


1. The translucent, frosted fluid chamber refracts The HYDRA’s BRIGHT, FLASHING RED light ensuring you’ll be seen by approaching vehicles when biking or walking.

2. Wearing headphones isolates you from your environment – very dangerous when cycling! The HYDRA’s powerful built-in Bluetooth speaker pumps music into your vicinity, letting you retain an aural connection to the world (and any potential hazards) around you!

Detachable, Water-Resistant Bluetooth Enabled Speaker:

Connect wirelessly to any Bluetooth enabled audio device and enjoy your favorite music, podcast or audiobook through The HYDRA’s compact-yet-powerful 3W speaker. Flip it, extend the rubber legs, and set it on a surface for even better audio quality!

No Bluetooth device? No problem! Connect via a standard headphone jack (cable provided) or tune into local FM radio without the need for an accompanying audio player. No need to replace batteries, this speaker is rechargeable.


The addition of a microphone has turned the bottle into a speakerphone! If your music is interrupted by a phone call, you can take the call, hands-free, and then get back to your tunes.


Charge Up Your Phone or other Electronic Devices: The HYDRA ensures you’ll never get caught with a dead smartphone battery again! The dedicated 4000 mAh power bank (with 2.1a USB output) ensures you’ll always have power whenever and wherever you need it.
