Aquio Enters Connected Hydration Market

Aquio has entered the hydration market with a line of double-wall stainless steel hydration bottles that feature an integrated, modular waterproof Bluetooth speaker powered by iHome.

Designed in the U.S., Aquio’s removable speaker is IP67-rated waterproof, sand-proof and features designer weather-resistant acoustic fabric. The modular five watt Bluetooth speaker features digital echo cancellation and talk/end button for speakerphone and audio caller ID.

The 16-ounce bottles are said to keep drinks cold for up to 24 hours or hot for up to 14 hours and are available in four colors: midnight, seafoam, merlot and blush.

“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.”

The bottles also feature a wide mouth, twist-off lid for comfortable drinking, adding ice cubes and easy cleanability, and a paracord carrying loop. All colors of Aquio bottles will be available for purchase at retailers across the U.S. and at the company’s website starting early July for a suggested retail price of $69.99.
