Hydration is key to staying healthy. So here are some useful apps that will help you keep track of your water intake and make you want to drink even more water.
We’ve been told to drink at least 2 liters (or around 8 glasses) of water daily. Not that big of a deal right? But with the busy lives we all lead, it can be tough to maintain the habit of drinking water consistently until our body shows signs of dehydration. This can be concerning since we drink water on a daily basis but have no idea how much of it our bodies are adequately getting.
So how can you ensure that you’re still getting enough water throughout your busy day? These free apps will help you track your water intake (and make your life easier too).

This daily tracker calculates how much water you need. It also keeps track of your hydration and regularly reminds you to drink water. You can set goals for how much water you intend to drink each day, and observe your water intake daily, weekly, and monthly. The app can also analyse your food’s nutritional value and keep track of your caffeine, calorie, and sugar intake, which is ideal for weight loss or weight maintenance.
Waterlogged helps you understand how well you are meeting your daily water intake goals through personalised charts. Apart from setting reminders at random intervals, you can also customise the app based on the size and type of drinking glasses that you are using. You can even choose the volume measurements that you prefer. For additional convenience, you can also apply custom photos of your drinking cups to easily log your water intake. It’s also fully integrated with other popular health apps like Apple Health, Fitbit, and MyFitnessPal.
If you are an Android user, you’re probably gonna love Hydro Coach. This app is customisable and lets you calculate your suitable water intake based on your weight, age, and lifestyle.
