I’ve always struggled with drinking enough water. I’m really not sure why. It’s just that I usually don’t think about it.
You tell the app how tall you are and enter your weight and it calculates how much water you should be drinking each day. For me it was 103.8 ounces per day.
Whenever you consume liquids throughout the day you can easily enter them into the app. I like how it has a bunch of predetermined drinks/quantities for you to choose from… or you can edit them.
There’s a way to enter water, coffee, tea, sports drinks, soda, even beer. Having a widget on my home screen makes it quick and easy to enter what I’ve had to drink.
If you’re like me and need a quick reminder to stay hydrated you can have the app remind you. The preset reminder tone sounds like water pouring into a glass.
The rest of my family thinks it sounds like someone peeing. Which, if you use this app you’ll probably be doing more of. You can change it to whatever tone you like. If you have an Android wear device you can have notifications/reminders sent to it.
The Water Drink Reminder Pro app will even chart your weight if you chose to enter it each day. It’s been interesting to see the up and down fluctuations in my weight as I’ve started tracking it.
I’ve been using the app for over a week now and can honestly say that I have increased my daily water intake. I still struggle to reach the suggested goal but I’m doing better.
The reminders (about once an hour) have gotten me to take drinks when I normally wouldn’t have. This app has really made me realize how little water I had been drinking previously.
I’d recommend this app to anyone who, like me, struggles to get the proper daily water intake. It’s easy to use and almost turns drinking water into a game.
Do you need this app? Not really. You could set a reminder alarm on your phone to go off every 60 minutes reminding you to drink water. You could enter your weight and beverages consumed into a spreadsheet. You could… but you probably wont.
I could’ve done all that before but I didn’t. I like the ease and simplicity of this app and don’t regret the purchase.
