1. If Your Water Needs a Flavor

Bored by the taste of water? Infuse your water with your own blend of fruits with this 25-ounce infuser water bottle from Zoma. While there are many infuser bottles on the market, what sets this bottle apart is its larger infuser basket, making it easier to get your favorite fruits (or even veggies) in without excessive chopping or smashing. The bottle also has locking cap for leak-free transport, an easy-drinking spout, a carry loop and finger grips built into the bottle.

PRICE: $9.99

2. If You Want to Shake It Up (Literally)

Fans of meal-replacement powders or rehydration drink mixes know the importance of getting a good blend and keeping them mixed as the day goes. With the BlenderBottle, your shakes will stay perfectly mixed, thanks to an internal BlenderBall® stainless-steel wire whisk that works to thoroughly blend everything from protein powders to ingredients like peanut butter, yogurt and applesauce. Choose from the Classic or SportsMixer bottles or the ProStack, which comes with separate attached compartments for vitamins, supplements or extra powder.

PRICE: $9.99 for Classic

3. If You’re Always Dehydrated

The new Moikit Seed bottle not only tracks your water consumption, it also reminds you throughout the day to meet your hydration goals. The bottle uses an algorithm to create a custom water-intake schedule based on your body composition, daily activity level and outside temperature to ensure you stay hydrated all day long. The Seed then uses small vibrations and the lid’s LED display to remind you to drink throughout the day. The vacuum bottle keeps water cold for up to 24 hours and hot for 12 with an innovative lid that warns you if the liquid is too hot for consumption. If you don’t catch them on Indiegogo before their February ship date, you’ll need to wait until the bottle hits marketplaces.

PRICE: $44 for 12 ounces

4. If You Need a Pick-Me-Up

In our multitasking world, it’s not surprising that we would ask more from our water than just hydration. Meet the 16-ounce Smart Nutrition Bottle from LifeFuels -- it’s not your average water bottle. The key to the Smart Nutrition Bottle is the innovative FuelPods. Use the pods to add a daily multivitamin, magnesium or B-12 to your water. Pods also come in supplement packs called Protein, Energy, Sleep Aid, Superfoods or Pre-Workouts and in flavors including Raspberry Lemonade, Flavored Electrolytes, Coconut Water, Green Tea and Coffee. Each bottle can hold five 1-ounce FuelPods that can have up to 30 servings per ounce. Use the bottle’s screen or the accompanying LifeFuels app to automatically dispense your favorite pods. The app also tracks how much you consume, learns about your habits and recommends the right pods at the right times. It even works with your favorite wearable trackers and health apps.

PRICE: $200; includes 10 FuelPods (about 130 servings)
