THIS WEEK the Inspector takes a look at a couple of gadgets designed to ensure you stay hydrated while out and about exercising – and no, that doesn´t include walking to the bar.
As we all know, keeping hydrated is very important, particularly living in a hot climate such as we have in Spain. Add exercise into the equation and this becomes even more vital. Did you know water is an important nutrient that composes approximately 50-60 per cent of our total body weight? With this in mind what does the gadget world have to offer on the hydrating front?
Firstly we have the Veleau Bicycle Mounted Hydration System – designed specifically for all types of recreational and touring cyclists. Forget about those clumsy backpack-mounted bottles or old fashioned clip-on bottle holders: this cycling hydration solution is simplicity itself.
Comprising a clever 1.25 litre water pack that fits neatly under your saddle, and a retractable tube bite valve attached to the crossbar, the Veleau Bicycle Mounted Hydration System makes hydrating on the move a cinch. Just pull the tube bite valve up to take a drink, then just let go – the magnets will return it to its resting position on the crossbar. This cycling hydration system most definitely sucks!
But what if you’re going to the gym or exercising at home? The Hydracoach Intelligent Water Bottle has an ingenious on-board computer that continuously tracks your intake of water and reminds you when you need a drink in line with your daily recommended intake.
The Hydracoach Intelligent Water Bottle can even offer advice on your water intake based on your weight and exercise routine duration. It even allows for factors such as heat, altitude and pregnancy. With a handy 650ml capacity hydrating has never been easier or more scientific!
The Inspectors Verdict: Whether you’re at home, at the gym or doing the Tour De Spain the Veleau Bicycle Mounted Hydration System or Hydracoach Intelligent Water Bottle will be there to make sure you stay hydrated. Now all you need is one of those clever mobile pee collectors – or you could just wear an adult nappy…
