GearBrain has seen a number of unique connected devices come to market but this is the first time we have seen the combination of a Bluetooth speaker and a stylish water bottle. Today, Aquio debuts its line of premium double-steel stainless-steel water bottles that not only come in a variety of designer colors but with an integrated waterproof Bluetooth speaker powered by iHome. These new hydration bottles are BPA-free and can keep your drink ice cold this summer for up to 24 hours and your hot drinks in the winter hot for up to 14 hours.
Aquio is the newest brand from SDI Technologies Inc., parent company of iHome, Timex and eKids. Created in 2018, Aquio offers innovative, premium-quality hydration solutions for the active, fashionable consumer. These new smart speaker water bottles are designed in the USA and manufactured with high-quality stainless steel that is BPA-free. Launching in four fashionable colors - midnight, seafoam, merlot and blush - it is the ideal hydration bottle for those that lead an active lifestyle and love taking their music with them on the go. Aquio's removable speaker is powerful, IP67-rated waterproof, sandproof, and features designer weather-resistant acoustic fabric.
We designed Aquio to make a fashion statement, represent best-in-class hydration technology and have the added cool factor of a detachable iHome Bluetooth speaker," said Nisan Davydov, Aquio and iHome Marketing. "From the materials used, to how it feels in your hand, even its stylish look and impressive sound quality, everything about our Aquio hydration bottles exudes premium quality. Customers will love the modular design of the product, as it gives them the option to use the bottle and speaker separately or together in addition to changing the colors up."
