MUST HAVE: LVL -a wearable hydration sensor

Wearable tech has exploded since Nike first introduced its Nike+ app that let you keep an eye on calories, steps taken and distance travelled. Now, with the recent announcement of the waterproof Apple watch series 2, the wearable tech game has taken another leap forward but are these gadgets missing one thing?

lvl_001Running, cycling, swimming, whatever the sport dehydration will hinder progress. Step forward LVL, a device thought up by a team who have one foot in the medical industry that alerts you when you need a to drink as well as how many ounces (the company is based in the US) you need to drink to get back to your optimum.

Now, this sensor isn’t a one trick pony. As well as observing how much water is needed it also measures sweat rates, heart rate, sleep patterns, mood and hydration analytics and calories and activity monitors. The sensor is supported by both iOS and Android, with a battery life of four days with a two-hour full charge time. Oh, and it is IP67 water-resistant.

Much like the Apple watch the LVL is not only functional but stylish. With a choice of three straps (silicon, brown and black leather) it is a piece of tech to wear throughout the day no matter the occasion.

It looks very likely that LVL will hit shelves soon as it has been 769% funded with 37 days to go. Prices look to be around the $200 mark but you can get yourself a discount if you fund the project now, click here.
