Smart or Stupid? An £89 refillable water bottle

Refillable water bottles are a great idea thanks to how environmentally friendly they are. Not only can they keep your water fresh and cool, but they’ll help you to cut down on the amount of plastic you use too.

However, at £89, does the Bellabeat Spring Smart Water Bottle take things a bit too far? Here, we decide whether spending nearly £90 on a water bottle is smart or stupid.

The Bellabeat Spring Smart Water Bottle

The price of the Bellabeat Spring Smart Water Bottle is high, but it does come with a number of great features that set it aside from other refillable water bottles.

The most impressive feature is that it can encourage you to drink the right amount of water for your weight and height. Through entering your details on the water bottle’s app, it will work out how much water you should be consuming each day and will send you a reminder when it’s been too long since you last had a drink.

The Bellabeat Spring Smart Water Bottle looks sleek and has a nice design, and although it is a little heavy due to being made from glass, it does have a grippy silicone cover which makes it comfortable to hold. This refillable water bottle has the capacity to hold 473ml of water, and the whole thing can be popped into the dishwasher – apart from the base which holds the technology.

If you really struggle to drink water throughout the day and could benefit from being reminded by your smartphone, it may be worth splashing out on the Bellabeat Spring Smart Water Bottle.

However, if you’re not that bothered about that side of things you’ll probably be just as happy with a cheaper option.
