Just like plants, humans cannot properly function without adequate fluid intake. Therefore, you need to make sure that you’re drinking enough fluids especially water. Speaking of which, not everyone has successfully developed a habit of drinking water. If you’re someone who is trying to stay fit and healthy, you might also want to consider tracking your daily water intake by using this app called “Hydro Coach”.
What Is It and What Does It Do
Hydro Coach is a free app for Android that helps track your daily fluid/water intake. It also features a neat and easy-to-use user interface. With the help of this app, you can easily find out the average amount of water (and other types of healthy and refreshing beverages) that you should drink per day. That’s not all. The app also provides a detailed calendar (Diary) and statistics for you to be able to monitor and evaluate your water drinking habit.
- Easy to use, neat user interface

- Calculates your ideal personal water intake requirement based on several factors such as your age, weight, lifestyle, gender, etc.
- Flaunts a graphical presentation of your daily/weekly/monthly water drinking habit

- Supports imperial (fl. oz.) and metric (ml) units
- Built-in sharing tools

- Works offline with account sync support
- None that I can think of – the app definitely serves its purpose. Just keep in mind that some of the app’s features are only available if you opt to purchase its pro version.
The way how Hydro Coach works is quite simple. After installing the app on your Android device, it will prompt you to log in using your Google account or simply log in as a guest user. After which, you will need to go through a four-step process in order to determine your daily ideal personal fluid/water intake requirement. The app will basically ask you to provide your basic personal info such as your age, weight, gender, lifestyle, etc.
After you get your daily water intake target, you can start tracking down your daily water intake. Through the app’s detailed graphical presentation, you can easily determine the total amount of water and other unsweetened beverages that you’ve already drank as well as the remaining amount of water that you still need to drink in order to meet your daily target.
With Hydro Coach, you can track, monitor and evaluate your entries in imperial (fl. oz.) or metric (mL/L) units. You can even set the average amount or volume of water that you can drink at any given time. Aside from this, the app lets you set a custom daily water intake target so you’re free to drink more than what is indicated. You can also set a custom reminder time.
Another thing that I like about the app is that it lets you evaluate your daily water drinking habit through its detailed diary and user stats. It is also user-friendly so you don’t need to go through complex steps. The app will automatically do the computation plus, it also provides two practical home screen widgets. So once it’s time for you to drink another glass of water, you will receive a notification from the app. You can even share your progress to your Facebook and other social media accounts.
All in all, I can say that Hydro Coach is a very reliable health and fitness app that will help keep you hydrated throughout the day. With its prompt reminders, there’s no way for you to forget to drink more water. It’s also very stable and responsive. You can also choose to sync your account across multiple devices.
