I dont really like Indiegogo. Everytime I backed a project in there, there were no updates, and no reward! And the website's staff never helped with anything.

More hydration is not necessarily better. I wonder if it's possible to set a lower goal. I'd much rather have a smaller bottle that I need to refill, to track my hydration. That's a really big bottle for me to constantly lift to my tiny head on my tiny body with my tiny and neuro-muscularly challenged hands.

Love the idea of tracking and hydration accountability and it has its uses surely.  I am one who needs the reminders and encouragement to drink regularly but would rather see this in a smaller package.  Also, I would need it audible alerts for when I left it in another room.

There are a lot of features built into this bottle. It's rather heavy to carry around.

If I’m lucky, I’ll get through 48 oz in a day, this would be great

I think the size is rather limiting to gym workouts and home use.  If you're one to hike or want to take your reuseable water bottles with you on travel, this isn't the best option by size alone.

As someone who is horrible at drinking water consistently, this seems really useful. I was just wondering why you chose to post on Indiegogo rather than Kickstarter (or other crowdfunding sites).

Correct Manon G, the recommended amount of water is much higher than the volume of most bottles on the market. Ghydion's goal is to make hydration accountability fun and achievable. We believe that's much harder to do if you have to fill your bottle every few minutes. 😊

Absolutely, Stephane. With its modular design and capability to adapt to users' goals, it is the only bottle of its kind. It's definitely an investment for people looking to take fitness to the next level. 😊

That is a lot of water to carry around.

[ABOUT US]

Ghydion is founded and family-owned by US Air Force Veteran Donovan Stewart. At Ghydion our mission is to simplify health and wellness in innovative ways. We aim to shatter the barriers that keep us stagnant in our pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.

Your support during this campaign will enable us to accomplish the upcoming phases: prototype development, testing, commercial production, packaging, and full delivery to the customer.

[How Ghydion Was Born]

Over two years ago, while deployed to Qatar, Donovan suffered heat exhaustion due to dehydration. The temperature in that region easily ranges from  105 to 130 degrees. His medical emergency was a wake-up call and the realization that interval drinking was the key to consistent hydration.

Donovan and the Ghydion team have committed over two years to industry research. Their discovery led them to the concept development and validation, planning, building a consultant team, and networking with design and manufacturing experts needed to produce the Ghydion Gallon.

[Why Crowdfunding]

When the idea of a smart gallon water bottle came to Donovan, he knew it was a product he himself desperately needed. He decided to do a crowdfunding campaign to further validate the idea that there were other people who needed it too. Crowdfunding is one of the most organic ways to raise money from a consumer base that can trust the process of development. Your contribution is helping the Ghydion team create a solution to chronic dehydration, a struggle that over 75% of Americans have in common.

 

[DEVELOPMENT PHASES]

PHASE I

  • Electronics Components Research
  • Design Strategy
  • 3D Internal Mechanical Concept CAD
  • 3D External Concept CAD and Renderings

PHASE II

  • Prototyping
  • Testing/Revisions 
  • Initial Manufacturing
  • Production
  • Packaging and Shipment

[The Impact]

Water is a resource most take for granted while many across the globe suffer because they don't have access to clean drinking water. Backing our campaign will help you achieve your health and wellness goals but the benefits don't stop there. Your pledge also becomes a partnership and solution as we support the mission of charity: water. Ghydion Co. is pledging 10% of every gallon sold to this non-profit organization that helps provide clean drinking water to those in developing countries around the globe. Essentially, hydration doesn't end with you, it begins with you.

[Risks & Challenges]

Our research and relationships with leading experts in the field of start-ups, and innovative product development have helped us to avoid many of the potholes that most start-ups face.  One of our key partners is MAKO Design + Invent, an original firm providing world-class consumer product development services tailored to startups, small manufacturers, and inventors. Simply put, they are the leading one-stop shop for developing physical products from an idea to store shelves, all in a high-quality, cost-effective, and timely manner.

As a small team with a big dream, we are leveraging the experience of our expert partners to minimize the risks at each stage of development. Our greatest challenge at this point is the need to leverage the support of our backers to bring Ghydion to market.

[Other Ways You Can Help]

You can support our campaign in more ways than one. Help us spread the word by using the Indiegogo share tool and GET THE WORD OUT.  Your support is what will ensure the Ghydion Gallon gets the attention of those who need our product the most.

Chronic dehydration is a silent enemy to our health and wellbeing.

Help us be the change that so many need!
