Hydrobi / Smart Hydration Monitor


Hydrobi is a hydration monitor with a goal not only to measure its user's hydration level but also to make drinking part of the daily routine.
Hydration can be measured from the individuals' skin thightness. Each hour Hydrobi buzzes once. The ribs on its back stick to the wearer's skin and move it along with the buzzing. The built-in scanner measures the thightness.
Hydrobi lets the user know of its condition with a message on the screen and with different light colors.
Hydrobi uses buzzing because it has a physical input which reminds its wearer to drink.
The analog like watch dial emphesizes this by making the time visually trackable.
