Proper hydration is linked to dozens of benefits, including weight loss, cardiovascular health and brain function. Yet, it’s alarmingly easy to go several hours without remembering to take a drink. How many times have you been at the office or on the go, when you’ve realized you’ve gone too long without water?
Phone apps can provide an easy and fun way to track water intake and set reminders to ensure proper hydration. We put together a list of the five best apps to help you stay hydrated. Drink up!

Water Drink Reminder
Simple and reliable, the Water Drink Reminder app provides cool tech integration and backed-up, restorable data.

Claiming to be the first water intake tracker in app form, Aqualert has had a head start on perfecting its user experience. Availabe in both Android and IOS, the app contains “Stay Motivated” reminders that show you how your water consumption is affecting different aspects of your overall health. Aqualert also prompts users to set bedtime hours to avoid unwanted reminders during the night.
This app turns water intake into a game. Perhaps the most fun of all hydration apps, Plant Nanny displays a user-chosen plant on the screen. As you drink water, the plant thrives. If you aren’t getting enough, the plant withers and eventually dies. Plant Nanny provides a great visual reminder of how essential water is for life.
