Water Drink Reminder

  • Free
  • Google Play
  • 4.6-star rating
  • Get reminded to drink each day, track your habits, and use it with your watch or other mobile device.

Top review: “Before the app, I wouldn’t get thirsty during the day. Instead I would find myself becoming dehydrated at night and throughout the early morning hours while I was meant to be sleeping.”

Waterlogged

  • Free
  • iTunes
  • 4-star rating
  • Use photos of cups to record intake, integrate with other health apps, and, spend less than a minute per day concentrating on water consumption.

Top review: “I can honestly say that I love the app. Tracking every ounce of my water consumption became a matter of life and death for me. I tried multiple different apps and I found this one to be the easiest to use.”

Hydro Coach

  • Free
  • Google Play
  • 4.6-star rating
  • The app calculates how much water you need, tracks what you drink, and keeps reminding when it’s time to drink again.

Top review: “This app works best when you allow the notifications. It has been very helpful in maintaining the right fluid intake. The only thing that would be helpful is if you could differentiate between various beverage options as they are not all equal in water content.”

Aquaalert: Water Tracker

  • Free
  • Google Play / iTunes
  • 4.6-star rating
  • Gives a graphic display of daily consumption and level of hydration, has automatic bedtime mode, and keeps a consumption chart history.

“Very easy to set up the constant reminder and the amount of water to drink which tracks it everyday up to a month. I highly recommend to download this app, it does have minor ads but you can purchase the one without ads which I read it works with smart watches too.”

Waterbalance

  • Free
  • Google Play / iTunes
  • 4.2 star rating
  • Provides facts about water and health; allows you to earn badges and share achievements with friends; and, considers height, weight, age, and lifestyle.

Top review: “My favorite simple water app. It’s stylish and good for morale with the badges. The water animation is simple but sweet. I have no complaints but I would like it if you added a notification sound that reminds me to drink like maybe a water trickling sound.”

Daily Water (Free Version)

  • Free
  • iTunes
  • 4.5 star rating
  • Plan your drinking schedule, email the data to friends and doctors, and see a histogram of daily, weekly, or monthly consumption.

Top review: “I love this app because it is simple, single-focused and effective. Other apps try to do too many things and complicate the goal. On the home screen the app shows how many glasses so far which is great—you don’t have to open app to see where you are.”

Hydrate Daily

Hydrate Daily

  • Free
  • iTunes
  • 4.5 star rating
  • Get suggestions on handpicked gear; set custom goals; and, track ongoing averages.

Top review: “Super easy to use! The app allows you to set up custom reminders (both in the frequency of the reminders and the ability to customize messages). I checked out at least five different water tracker apps that were either too difficult to use, or that did not have a flexible enough platform to meet my specific needs.”

Water Time Pro

  • Free
  • Google Play
  • 4.7 star rating
  • Has flexible settings; offers automatic calculation of water consumption; and, tracks other beverages such as coffee and tea.

Top review: “Took less than 5 minutes to set up, and now the reminders helped me to increase to 1 gallon a day. Perfect balance of reminding without being annoying. LOVE the sleep feature and how the reminders work.”
