Vittel developed a special cap with a built-in timer to remind people to drink more water.

Everyone knows that they should be drinking eight 8 oz glasses of water a day to stay properly hydrated. But the number of people who actually do so is rather low – French mineral water company Vittel found that 80% of the French population tend to forget to drink water during the day. This is why they created a new bottle cap with a built in timer that reminds people to drink water every hour.

The Vittel Refresh cap looks like an ordinary red cap but when you screw it onto any water bottle, it automatically sets a mechanical timer. After an hour, a spring releases and the timer goes off – but instead of an alarm, a little plastic flag pops up as a quick visual sign that it is time to drink some water.
