Octobers Own '83 - Apple watch dream!!
I normally forget about drinking water or to engrossed in my work. I've tried apps for reminders but my phone does not always get my attention. I got an apple watch last week to replace my Fitbit last week and stumbled across this app in looking for fitness apps that give the best apple watch experience and I love it. I've had a streak of meeting and exceeding my 100 oz goal since I've gotten it. The watch app gives me the needed reminders and makes it easy to register immediately. Also, the fact that all drinks count, not just water makes this so much better. It's easier to hit my goal, so I feel better about it, have greater consistency, and am more conscious of how much of my liquid consumption is not water. Looking at you coffee! The design is great. The quick adds are the best. The only criticism are the models you use for your character. Greater variety here would be awesome. Could even make a game or of it by having customization where options are unlocked. The badges have my attention (I will get them all), and I'm curious of what I could chase as a mini game over I have them. Fun is in the name of the company, let's have a bit more with this app!
Aaaaaaaaadds - Does what it’s supposed to do but I wish it was more dynamic.
I can think of many things that can be done to make this app more dynamic and adaptable instead of just a simple app that acts as a log and sends you preset reminders. The most obvious one is to change your required daily intake based on your level of activity. iPhones and Apple Watches log your basic level of activity (distance walked, flights climbed, number of steps) and many people log their physical activity into the health app using different apps and activity trackers. Wouldn’t it be cool if the app accounted for that and upped your required water intake based on your level of activity each day? Other things the app can adapt for can be weight and body water % (I use a smart scale that automatically calibrates this info to my health app), weather (like a reminder to drink extra water on a hot day), and consumption of diuretic drinks as logged into the app. If the developers can incorporate these features into the app then they would really have a complete app that stands out from the rest.
VeryME - Slowly, yet beautifully changing my life
The first thing usually I worry about is having an alarm that tells me what to do because that would seem very annoying, however with this app I find myself enjoying every time the water reminder tells me “hey ! Its time to drink water” - also - having the flexibility to choose the best time to remind me is key.
realized that my water intake throughout the day is under the optimum level that works for me - it has just been a week and I have found out lots of changes with my taste pallets whereby the more water I drink the better I feel + the less sugary and salty food I crave.
This app certainly is simple, efficient and does the job - I also love the animations they use and Apple Watch reminders, beautiful graphics. Being a bit greedy here - maybe more of those graphics ? Cuz they’r amazing - I’d be really really be happier with it.
Dehydrated in NC - Disappointed...
I just purchased this app with great anticipation. Unfortunately, I am greatly disappointed. I created a Siri shortcut to log a 16.9 ounce bottle of water and then used that shortcut to log my first water intake from my watch. Siri replied that it logged the water as expected. However, the log didn’t update on the phone. Meanwhile the watch app still shows that it needs to be setup with all the same information I setup on my phone. I attempted to refresh the connection from WaterMinder but this had no effect. I tried closing WaterMinder and relaunching it to no avail. So, I figured I’d try the Siri shortcut on my phone. This logged the 16.9 oz. and magically the previous 16.9 oz. also appeared, giving me a total of 33.8 oz. obviously this means I should delete the duplicate entry I had just logged which I did. Now every time I select the history tab WaterMinder crashes. I had high hopes for this app. I’m still hopeful that the developers can fix this.
Update: Clearing iCloud data, removing the app from the phone and watch, and starting over has resolved the crashing issues. I did have to setup the app on the watch. It also appears that the watch interface settings are not syncing. I configured it to use the ring interface on the watch as well to get around this.
RABleakney - Just get it - already.
Finally, an App that is dedicated to helping remind me to drink the 3 liters (100 oz) a day that I need (Women get 2 L). Graphic is excellent and is an instant seller when folks want to know what that sound is....
Put it on your watch to capture every time you are beyond arms length from your phone- it makes for a accurate counting of those ounces.
I am on a Keto Diet and it essential that I get all of my 3 L in a day - or risk medical complications. I have tried counting the water bottles, buying a 2 L jug (but seriously- who wants to lug that around), even stacking my refrigerated water bottles on my desk just to have them come up to room temperature.... and am free of all that now. One glance of the icon on the corner of my watch dial and I know how much I drank and how much to go.
Developer: my only ask is to not prompt me to drink more when you know that I had a drink moments ago. For such an awesome App it would rate a 5 if you put in logic to know when I last had a drink and prompt me again from that time. Deducted a star.
Conrad Taylor - My 1+ Year Usage Review
I have been using this app for over a year now and it’s a very good app. However, it can be much better because anything consumed doesn’t always update the main screen. At this time, I need to tap History and tap Hydrate to see the updated totals. Next, how does one determine the hydration factor impact for soy milk because this doesn’t appear to be a standard option in the app? Furthermore, Reminders need to be simplified to something like every half hour, hour, and other value entered by the user. BTW, this could be similar to the Podcast app. Also, I should be able to receive these reminders only during certain interval during the day and the reminder should tell me how much to actually drink to meet my daily goal. It would be nice if I could say, ‘Hey Siri, log 8 oz of water’ or similar phrase but I know that Siri is very limited in its abilities to do anything at this time. In summary, this is a very good application for tracking my fluid intake per day but there are a few enhancements that I feel would make this app even better.
Amanita Bella Dreams - Only logs water
If you just want to log water than this app is easy. However, it gives you the option to log any beverage but the glitch is it counts all beverages towards your water goal. It’s a “hydrate” total that includes soda, coffee, and even energy drinks as hydration and that is completely incorrect. I did not try alcohol but I suspect it would be included as was because the app doesn’t differentiate the kind of beverage logged in the correct categories. Obviously soda is not hydration and alcohol would be the opposite of hydration. So, the developers need to fix this glitch. The app Calory is by far more advanced and costs $15 a year for the complete premium subscription. You can log water and it only applies water to water; all other beverages are logged separate. It also bar scans your food so counting calories is so easy!!! Use the free version if all you want is a water logger. If this app was to develop into an app like Calory I would try it again because of the ease of use. But, currently it would have a long way to go to complete with Calory. So, if you just want to log water only and nothing else then it’s a great app and very easy to use.
BarrySullens - Nice but has problems
Widget does not work. Doesn’t stay updated as entries are made on other devices. True on iPhone and iPad. If you try to add an entry from a reminder on watch, it might work, and it might not. Sometimes it adds the entry correctly, sometimes it adds my top option, 8 oz water, even if I added another entry like 10 oz coffee. If I add an entry that way, I have to double check to make sure it added correctly. More times than not, I end up deleting the entry and adding it manually from the app on my watch. iPad app does not live update data. I have to open the app, force close it, and reopen before latest updates from other devices show up. Come on guys. I have lots of apps that share and merge cloud data from multiple devices. If they can get it right, so can you. From a single app perspective, if you only use the iPhone app to do all the activities (adding entries and viewing current hydration), it works satisfactorily...well, except for the widget. I’ve deleted the widget; it is just useless.
321Saudade123 - Awesome! (Especially if you have kidney stones!)
I was never a big water drinker. My grandmother always said I would be dehydrated. Well, that didn’t happen. But what DID happen was that due to my not drinking enough water, my kidneys were not able to eliminate the particles that build kidney stones. So two years ago I was hospitalized for kidney stones. To avoid it happening again, my doctor recommended drinking 1 gallon of water every single day.
So this app is PERFECT for me! It’s so easy to enter your goals and log in your drinks. At a glance you can see how you’re doing. Anyway, I love it and I RELY on it. That kidney stone all but crippled me, limited my movement due to pain. I remember that pain and this app helps me keep it from happening again.
So thanks to anyone who read my story about how much this app means to me, and many thanks and gratitude to those caring individuals who developed it.
travis.reiter - Dynamic reminders were a huge missed opp
App is slick and has a ton of configuration options to personalize the app, but the biggest feature I expected to find was dynamic reminders. I blindly trusted the app’s position on the health app leaderboard and bought it without researching it much, and that’s my fault. But the reminders are static, and I expected more from a $5 app. Having 50 icons to choose from for your water buttons is nice, but I’d rather have options with my reminder settings. I get plenty of notifications from my phone as it is. The default settings include 7 reminders throughout the day. I only want reminders if I’m falling behind and not trending toward 100%, but as it is, I’m going to get 7 reminders every day regardless of progress. I’d like to be able to set a reminder to trigger on certain criteria, for example if I haven’t logged anything in over 3 hours, or if it’s 2:00PM and I am not yet 30% of the way to my goal.
Josey86 - Favourite Water Tracking App
This is my favourite water tracking app. I’ve been using it for at least the last 5 years. Unfortunately, in the last few months, anything logged from my Apple Watch doesn’t sync with apple health, so to keep them synced I either have to go in to apple health at the end of everyday to add in my hydration from the day (which doubles everything up in the app) or log everything from my phone. For some reason, logging on my phone instantly syncs with apple health. I’ve tried contacting support and kind seem to find anything other than FAQs, so I’ve resorted to leaving a less than stellar review in the hopes that support will see it and help.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app on my phone and my watch multiple times. I’ve tried restarting my phone and my watch. I’ve soft reset my phone. I’ve tried unlinking the app from apple health and relinking. Nothing seems to fix the problem. I’ve not had the app completely removed from my watch for three weeks. Prior to that I had it off my watch for two months.
elireze - FOR THOSE WITH ADHD: Fantastic on iPhone, like a dream on Apple Watch
I’ve been dealing with ADHD (ADD) for my whole life. I still have to motivate myself every night so i can bare to brush my teeth. I also forget or neglect being hydrated almost everyday. No habit-related app works on me but this is something else. It’s amazing, packed with features, watch complications, intuitive interface and easy to use. I have it set with a beautiful percentage bar and icon on my main watch face. I love its beautiful and funny reminder notifications on the watch. It’s really fast and fun to progress through the day with the watch app. The iPhone interface is also very nice and quick. Definitely worth the money. No app is like this, specially if you want to keep motivated to stay hydrated during the day as a person with ADHD or ADD.
FusionHammer - Good for tracking. Reminders need to be smarter
I use this app to track my water intake. You can also use it to track other hydration sources, like sports drinks. Difference being the percentage of the amount consumed counting toward your overall intake.
Example, 100 ml of water will count 100% of that. 100 ml of a sports drink will count for a little over 100% and alcohol less than 100%. I don’t agree with counting alcohol consumption towards hydration, so I don’t use the app for those beverages.
The reminders are the part of the app that are lacking. They simply remind you to drink water at specific times during the day. They do not take into account how much you have already consumed, when you consumed your last beverage, or how much you need to consume to reach your daily goal. This feature needs to be enhanced to consider those things. More than once I’ve been reminded to drink water after I just logged drinking 1 liter. :-(
NOSHELTR - Wonderful App to Use
Easy to use, loads of customizable features. Best ones are ability to create different drinks and their water content, choice of time of day for reminders, and the intelligence to stop reminding you when you’ve hit your daily goal. Getting 4 stars because reminders do not respect your recent inputs. I will log 24 oz of water at 8:58 and a reminder to drink water at 9:00. Dumb. Should have intelligent system to suppress reminders if you’re ahead of your goal, if you’ve logged intake within x minutes, and adjust your goal to consume x amount by a certain time. For example if I want to make sure I hit 100% of my goal between 8am and 8pm, the intelligent reminders should remind me to consume at an intelligent rate. I’ve been told they’re working on this feature set for this summer, but we’re mid way through and I haven’t seen it yet. Good app though. Works great with Apple Watch.
Polo.T - Needs more A.I.
I’ve had this app for years but rarely use it. I’m starting to use it more. The app and its use is great. Very easy to use. It WORKS. Never had issues with bugs. It’s handy for logging water in take, but that’s where it stops. It needs more. Please 🙏 can you guys update and improve your app to make it smarter and more useful for people and athletes by dipping into HealthKit data; use people’s metrics and fitness/activity data and calculate/compensate needed hydration levels based off people’s exertion instead of just a generic X-amount based off of gender, height and weight. To help prevent injury for athletes, people should know how much more hydrated they need to be for better recovery. And if people are drinking/logging tea/coffee/alcohol, that definitely does not count towards water in take or hydration; it depletes hydration.
LosingFast - It's okay...UPDATED
... but no matter what I do I can’t get the app to sync the watch and phone data. I have brand new everything so it shouldn’t be an issue with outdated equipment. I could understand this perhaps if I hadn’t had to shell out money for the app. To be clear, I’ve read reviews and developer responses. The watch app does not sync with the iPhone. I’ve restarted both. Reloaded the app. Still no syncing. Very disappointed.
I’m not sure how it happened, but after a couple of weeks I noticed that the app was syncing. I had ready tried the developers fix after reading it on another review, and it hadn’t fixed the problem. As I said, I don’t know what changed (other than my opinion of the app). I am now very impressed.
MBBeans - Hydration Impact is a Problem
So, I want to start off by saying that the app is really good other than this one issue. It’s very manageable and efficient.
However, different drinks don’t impact your hydration level as much as others.
If you look in the settings and go to “Hydration and Other Drink Types,” there is a chart at the bottom that tells the hydration impact of each type of drink. It would be really nice, but the values aren’t right.
For example, in the app, the hydration impact of soda is the same as water. They’re both set at 1.
Soda should have an impact of about .47 of what water has.
Juices should be at ~.55, not 1.
Energy drinks should be at .4, not 1.
Tea should be at ~.85, not 1.
These things don’t hydrate you nearly as well as water does.
That’s a pretty big issue in my opinion. I know that you can go through and add different drinks and change the coefficient of hydration of each one separately, but I shouldn’t have to do that or go and research the hydration impact of a particular type of drink every time I want to add something. I should be able to select the drink type and amount and the coefficient should be correct to begin with.
Other than that, I love the app.
It works great, looks great, and is very useful. If that one problem could be fixed it would be the perfect hydration app.
JayceValiant - What I would like to see
This app is great. Now that I’m drinking more water, I feel a lot better. Drinking more water to feel better is not a myth!
There are some things I’d like to see though. I’d like to see the liquid that fills up the avatar be different colors according to whatever I’m drinking (like a brown section to indicate coffee). I feel like this can help users track what they are drinking from a glance. Not only that, but say a person drinks 80% soda for a day. This can be a wake up call! I’d also like the notifications to not be so static. If I drink a glass of water 2 minutes before a reminder, I’d like the app to not remind me to drink water. It’s quite silly to get notified right after I logged a drink. Maybe create a window of opportunity. Say I took a drink 20 min before a reminder. Don’t remind me. Or create an option for users to set that window limit.
Enthous - Updated watch —>updated review
I originally gave this app only 2 stars and a poor review based on poor syncing with my Apple Watch 3 and glitches in the iPad version. I recently replaced my watch with an Apple Watch version 6 and no longer have syncing problems. The app itself is well designed and is better than the others I downloaded, although it was the only one that didn’t let me use it in a limited fashion before I had to pay for it. It reminds me to drink, makes recording my intake easy, and I like the ability to design my own beverages and sort them my way. The iPad version still has to be restarted every morning in order to see my daily history, so I can’t give it 5 stars yet. When everything works as it’s supposed to, it will definitely be a 5 star app.
IDF18 - Good app, some improvements possible
In general, this is a great app for those of us who get busy during the day and forget to drink enough. I especially like that I can use it on the Apple watch. After using the app for a little over a week, I've noticed some things that could/should be improved on.
1. The reminders should be better timed. I keep getting mine right after I logged that I just had a glass of water. Obviously, that's the exact moment I don't need those reminders.
2. When I increase the temperature from cold to moderate, the app tells me to lower (yes, lower) my water intake. That doesn't make sense to me.
3. I wanted to see what the app would say if I drank an unhealthy amount and entered up to 9 liters (my recommended intake is 2.1l) and the app kept congratulating me on passing the recommendation.
But overall: good app.
xcrunner208 - Notifications and Reminders
I would have given this app a 5 star rating in a heartbeat, the design concept and functionality of the app is flawless. My only concern I have for this app is the notifications. I own an iPhone XS and Apple Watch 4 that I keep updated regularly, but for some reason the application fails to send me notifications properly, regardless of how many times I turn off notifications/reminder both in my Settings and inside the app itself. I have also shut down my phone and watch countless times to see if this would help, but it hasn’t sent me several notifications when I have them set as custom as well. If there was a way to improve this function it would be greatly appreciated and I would change my rating back to a 5 Star.
Jerel2u - Just what the Dr. (would have) ordered!
Best water app I could find!! Two expensive kidney stone procedures, and now I am VERY motivated to drink all my water every day! Kidney needs to clear 2 liters of water a day to stay healthy, so I figure if 2 is the minimum, go for 3, and if don’t quite make it I’m still likely to hit 2. 3 liters is 101 ounces, so setting goal to 100 ounces easily tells me exactly how many ounces I have left to drink via the percent indicator. Every time I resist drinking all my water, I remember being in the hospital, and I remember paying thousands of dollars. So, drink water when I don’t want to, or pay thousands of dollars out of pocket. Hmmm, tough choice... Thanks WaterMinder for keeping me present to my options!
CaliforniaRN - I love this app and highly recommend it!!
I have been using this app for 10 months and I have met my hydration goal every day. The reminders are great (I love the one that sounds like liquid pouring into a glass!!). My skin looks great and I feel fantastic. I have a spill-proof Contigo water bottle that I take with me everywhere (another high recommendation!). I start my day drinking 20 ounces of water before I get out of bed. It gives me a strong start. I knows it’s silly but I get a kick out of watching the water level raise throughout the day on the figure that illustrates my hydration level! The app developers did a fantastic job with this app. I wouldn’t change a thing. Highly recommended!!
aspynfox - Annoying notifications
I get that this app is meant to remind you to hydrate but even at 120% I don’t need reminders on the hour. I get them at random, even after I’ve drank an entire bottle of water so it’s really just an annoying notification spam after a while and not really based on hydration level. I couldn’t find any way to turn the notifications off either. No option via my phone or in app or anything. It was really frustrating and the notifications are even causing issues with my watch because there are so many. I enjoy the complication on my watch face and just tracking it in general, it’s very simplistic and easy to use, but the issue with notifications are causing severe lag on the watch (waterminder also opens at random, and I have the 5) and forcing me to have to delete the app which is also unfortunate considering I paid to use it.
waruiz - Lacking
Several features leave much to be desired. It helps remind you, and track, when you ingest liquid - yay! 3 stars for CRUD app. Let’s get it to 5 stars by fixing some lazily implemented features. If it’s 2 mins to the hour, I just recorded I drank something, and there’s a reminder set for the hour - do not remind me 2 mins later. There should be a “grace period” so I’m not flooded with needless reminders (reason I uninstalled the first time). Next, not all liquids are created equal. Diuretics and liquids that dehydrate the body should be weighted as such in the percentage toward goal. After all, I am concerned with my body’s hydration level, not ability to ingest liquid. Next, the slider on the phone app for changing ounces is annoying - MyFitnessPal took care of recording this better (take a look a their implementation). Good luck!
glschroeder - No longer works on Series 1 Watch
I loved this app since finding it last year. It was so easy to keep track of how much fluids I had had during the day. However, since June 13th, 2019, shortly after the WWDC, the complication no longer works on the Series 1 Watch. I can still add things in on my iPhone but it was so much more convenient on my Watch. I know the Series 1 is getting old but couldn’t the developers have made it compatible just a little longer? Oh well, maybe this is a hint that it’s time to upgrade.
Update: Developer contacted me with instructions on how to fix this. And it works! Thanks Funn Media.
Dependability_is_me - Watch App Rarely Works
Needed a good app that tracks water consumption. Friends recommended this. Ended up purchasing this $5 app. Ultimately the app is good on the phone, but the app on the watch is horrible. I’m looking for functionality, and this app continues to freeze when I need it to work. I have to open and close the app multiple times on my watch in order to actually get it to track water. Half the time I end up having to remember to just log it on my phone. Not worth it in my opinion, unless this issue gets fixed.
Update: Developer reached out to ask me to delete and reinstall. The issue still persists. It keeps getting stuck and it’s time to move on to a different application to manage this. I don’t recommend this app if you use the Watch complication. It’s decent on the iPhone, but the watch app needs a lot of work.
Abdulqayum Kurdish - People are always forgetting
Me personally, I always forget to dring enough water. This app perfectly matches what I was in need to. You make put your drinking goal per day, then it reminds you. Also the app supports Siri! Very nice simple design makes you to enjoy your experience with the app.
First when I downloaded the app before several years, I didn’t listen to it’s notifications. Last week I had to call emergency ambulance because I had a deadly very strong pain resulting kidney stone! Then I am back to the app, not to suffer from that pain ever again.
Thank you app team for making this brilliant app for keeping peoples healthy!
star benefactress - “Water” nice app!
(The header’s a pun. It’s okay to grin.)
I really like this app because it is an effective way for me to keep a fairly accurate record of my fluid intake. I also like that it works with my Apple Watch, which makes keeping track of how much water I’m drinking throughout the day much simpler, having set reminders to my watch. However, the reason I did not give a five star rating is because the greatest quantity of liquid that can be logged at one time is 36 oz, and my Hydro Flask is 1.1 L (40 oz), so I have to log two separate fluid entries at the completion of one bottle’s worth of water. It would be much simpler to use if there were the option to log greater values of fluid than limiting the users greatest intake to 36 oz.
Oviedite - Life Changer
For years, I was an individual who only drank water when I felt thirsty. Consequently, I have paid dearly by having to deal constantly with Kidney Stones. Women say having a baby is painful, apparently they've never passed a Kidney Stone!! LOL Ever since I've been using this program, my level of Hydration has increased 10 fold and I'm on the road to recovery. Definitely a life changer in my particular situation. However, the last update had messed up the visual display so that it doesn’t work correctly! Contacted the App support and they are extremely difficult to deal with. They want you to fix their problems!!!
Aaplmath - A Stellar, Motivational App
WaterMinder is among the apps I use most both on my phone and my watch. Being able to log drink types other than water—and having their hydrating effect calculated automatically—is extremely helpful, as is the ability to log drinks on Apple Watch. WaterMinder comes the closest to achieving parity of core features between the watch and phone, and its complication has been on my watch face since the day I got an Apple Watch. The app’s support is also terrific—I found a minor bug in the app, contacted the developer, and less than three days later it was fixed. I highly recommend this app!
Cheule - Great design
This app does two things really well that make it perfect for my use.
1) it fully integrates with HealthKit, so my other apps like LoseIt! can pull the water data. That means I don’t have to go into LoseIt! to enter any water I drink.
2) it operates effortlessly straight from a complication on the Apple Watch. This is big because honestly it solves the problem that so many apps have like LoseIt! Sure LoseIt! has an Apple Watch app, but it’s basically a glorified display. Almost not entry can be done from the Apple Watch side. Getting my phone out a few times a day to enter food is ok with me, but every time I drink is not. WaterMinder solves this!
lucky_in_lasvegas - Best App Out There
I don’t leave many reviews but I can’t help but compliment the developers of this app! Besides the app being 100% functional and doing exactly what it’s meant for, the customization capabilities in the settings are phenomenal! I’ve never seen an app that went above and beyond the normal functionality like this one. You can tell the developers know what they are doing and are very professional. I cannot believe how you can customize the way the app icon and colors of everything look. The watch customizations and complications are the coolest thing! I highly recommend this app!! Keep up the great work!
LDMDRD - I’m finally drinking enough water
Thanks to this app, I’m no longer dehydrated.
Badly needed improvement: if you log hydration, it’s really annoying to get a reminder two minutes later that it’s time to hydrate. It can’t be that difficult to program it do this doesn’t happen.
It would be great if metrics could be introduced, such as you’re on track to get all your water in, you’re currently only 15% of your goal. Make sure you complete hydration a couple hours before bedtime, etc. There have been a few times I’ve realized I’m 30 ounces behind two hours before bedtime. It would be great for the app to have this enhanced functionality.
MySkinniHips - I’m Impressed
People put some work into creating this app! I did not expect $5 and a $1 tip to the Tip Jar to afford me so many things that I would be excited about. I woke up excited about starting a journey to improve my health, and this app adds to my motivation. From the easy, thorough, attractive interface to the cute stuff (the characters), I feel really prepared and motivated to take better care of myself. This app checks all of my boxes and will definitely stay in my arsenal of tools to stay on track and heal from ailments. I can’t thank the creators enough. You guys did a good thing. Be proud. God bless.
Afurokhan - One of the only apps I use consistently!
I’ve tried so many habit apps and I absolutely love this one. I’ve found other apps to be way too detailed and inaccessible. WaterMinder is way more user friendly and it’s fun to use! As an added bonus, it has a complication for the Apple Watch which is very helpful. I began to realize that I don’t drink enough water throughout the day and this app really helps me keep my water intake in check. I use this app as much as I use instagram. I hope the creators make more useful and fun apps in the future! Happy drinking (ahem...drinking water to be exact) ;).
mmcmsp - Please bring back old widget
After iOS 14 updates, the new widget for adding your drinks, opens the app... the old one did not, was perfect! Now it's terrible because it loads the app every time and, if I wish to open the app, I would not need a widget! Please bring the old one back or just make it work as supposed to, from the widget! Thanks!
Thanks for your response. The old widget is actually back, don't know how... but now I see I can manage/edit/change the quick icons. I remove/add and nothing happens. It doesn't change... don't know if it's a bug or if it's setup like that and you can't edit the quick actions.
VsadniK - Buggy for such a simple app
I love the app and as much as I hate to say this, for the level of complexity of what the app does, it should operate flawlessly. Yet it doesn’t. The bug that annoys me the most is logging and display of current intake. For example, when I press to log 8oz of water, I hear the sound but the app doesn’t display the increase unless pressed multiple times. It’s been the issue with probably past 3-4 updates and yet it’s still happening. I also agree with poor synchronization with Apple watch like other users mentioned. I’m about to install the app at this point. No offense, but the essence of the app is to remind user to drink, log and display intake accurately.
1st Choice Taxi - Doing something Today My Future Self Would Be Proud of
I like this app so far, I saw the free apps that were similar but I’d chosen to pay for this one and I don’t regret it at all. Before this app I hardly drink any water at all but now I’m at 196oz a day, I’ve learned so much and I’m still learning. I’ve searched and what do you know my favorite Water App is being quoted, used or referenced and if that doesn’t show show me that I made the best choice by choosing it what else would. I’d recommend this app to anyone who’d like to also try and make their future self proud
Ali Radwani - Not syncing
The app on the phone doesn’t sync correctly with the Apple Watch, it takes hours to show it on the phone. Plus i need to open the app and keep refreshing it. Still same issue as before. Nothing is being fixed
So i have received a response regarding the issue of not syncing, which is not convenient at all. I have tried deleting the app and restarting the devices and all the things that have been mentioned. So when i ever have this issue the ideal step is to delete the app, restart the devices, reinstall it and wait for it to not sync again. Thanks for the response but that was not an issue way back in the early stages of this app, after the latest updates you guys keep pushing out that is causing the app to crash and not sync. Good luck
Haris Nikolovski - UI interface for adding custom drink
Only one thing that I think could have been design better. When you press other to add customizable drink/size, plus sign that you use to increase amount (if you don’t use slider) and plus sign that you actually press to add that to your list, are too close together. And since they are both plus signs, they are confusing. Most of the time when I want just increase amount I press big and prominent plus and add what ever was last selected.
Please just move that button at the bottom, under the rotating dials. Or change the name of the button to “add”
Daryl Zero - The fourth ring I have to close every day
My earlier complaint about syncing between watch and phone seems to be resolved (1. Delete app from watch, 2. Reboot watch and phone, 3. Reinstall watch app, 4. Open app on phone, 5. Open app on watch). So that will really help fixing entry errors I make on the watch (although lag on the watch is generally the cause of those errors, and fixing them on my watch would be even better).
Also, I have enough different sized water bottles, cups, glasses, and drink types that I really need the Siri shortcuts at least to be unbound by the UI limitations of the watch and iPhone apps.
Stephen.Traé - A bug that is starting to become a real pest.
This is by far my favorite water tracking app but I’ve ran into a constant issue that prevents me from pressing the quick add button on the iPhone. If I click the button write next to the + button then I can manually add whatever ounces but for some reason the moment I click on the quick add button; it crashes.
I was recommended by the app developer to remove drinks and try re-adding them? That also didn’t work. Anytime I press the plus button it crashes. I also recently just got the 12 pro on the latest IOS. My original issue was occurring when I had the 11 pro.
Rivukis - Great App
Great app! However, I recently updated to iOS 14 with the new widgets in the today view. Before, I could simply hit a button and the hydration would apply. Now I hit the button, point the phone at my face to unlock it, and wait for the app to launch. Sometimes, my phone is laying down, and the today view is/was great for quick actions on the phone without picking it up and fully investing in phone time. Is there a way to add back the functionality of not needing to unlock the phone and launch the app for today widget actions?
Alexander.EXE - Great app for reminding you to stay hydrated.
This app does a great job reminding me to stay hydrated. Since the human body can technically be dehydrated well before you start to notice, I’m grateful for every notification I receive.
I also love how easy this app is to use from my Apple Watch. A simple tap of the compilation, or Siri command makes logging each drink easier.
My only advice would be to add more options for beverages. Almond milk is nowhere to be found, even though it’s a popular alternative to dairy. I hope to see this one added soon.
Blrhcky - Actually using it
I always think the key to apps like this is usability — let’s face it, anything that slows me down or over complicates things is never going to become habit. So far this is great. Super fast and easy to log my usual drinks, and (maybe more importantly) almost as fast to add something out of the norm. Tracking my progress by watching my guy fill up with water is a fun touch — shows the attention to detail that makes me respect the developers. Nice work. One of the only “self help” apps I’ve looked at that I continue to use.
salty breathe - Excellent, easy-to-use, and integrates with Health
This app is great. It's really easy-to-use, but it's also next meet customizable. I've been drinking a lot more water because of the app, honestly. Also, it's got a great design that makes it feel right at home on an iPhone (you can't say the same for a lot of other food-tracking apps). The Apple Watch app is also pretty useful, and the stickers are cute.
My only suggestion would be to make sure that previous records aren't erased when you increase your daily goal.
Coco5682 - Very revealing
Dehydration is one of my migraine triggers so I use the app to make sure I’m properly hydrated. Was surprised to discover on work days I drink about 50% less which explains some of the migraines. Still struggle on those days but knowledge allows corrective action. Hope the developers add nut milk at some point.
Update: In Settings > Other Drinks a custom drink can be added however one would have to research the hydration factor (or take a guess). A very limited search seems to indicate hydration factor affected by at least the sodium content.
rflem747 - Excellent app
I am someone who has always had a problem drinking enough water. Probably always on the edge of dehydration. I recently started taking a new diabetes drug which helps lower blood sugar by elimination through the kidneys. This caused me to be very dehydrated. I tried increasing my water intake on my own but was not very successful. This app is very simple but but extremely effective. It has worked very well for me. There is nothing like a visual showing your progress during the day. Highly recommended!!
taraleta - Helpful and simple.
I love this app. I rarely pay for apps but I think this app was worth a few bucks. And I like how it’s set up to be able to “tip” them. Your first tip gets rid of ads... and I expected that to be it. But honestly I have loved having this app and it’s been so helpful I e tipped it again. I set up custom reminders that pop up between classes that remind me to fill my bottle up. It’s convenient to use the app on my watch, too. Overall, I really like this app and recommend it if you’re trying to get healthier.

SirShanksalot - The most balanced and solid water+all beverage tracker
I’ve tried a few water trackers over the years and there appear to be more contenders every time I look, but I keep coming back to Waterminder.
It is the perfect balance of quirky personality (love the character choices and water sloshing effect) without compromising a beautifully clean and consistent design across iPhone/iPad and Watch. This is what keeps me wanting to revisit the app and check out my stats.
What it’s most successful in is allowing you to get in and out quickly to track your water intake whether it’s with the:
- in app quick presets
- Apple Watch app
- Siri shortcuts (just tell Siri while on the go)
- Or as I was pleased to learn from the developer, there’s a ‘Current hydration’ dashboard widget that I otherwise missed!
Many apps only track ‘water’ but WaterMinder adeptly approximates across almost ANY kind of beverage (custom ones coming), with easy to configure presets for your most common ones.
Development has been consistent and the latest version immediately supports all iOS13 features (Dark more is gorgeous).
With upcoming caffeine stats sharing to the Health app (maybe other statistics such as Alcohol, Sugar and Sodium?) it just keeps getting better and for a very generous tip or small subscription system model.
Save yourself some time and look no further!
Griggzy - Keeping me alive
App is brilliant in every way and I use it every day, it keeps me alive! Very disappointed however with the latest update that means I don’t see the app badges anymore due to App Store policy, thanks Apple. It was the saving factor that reminded me to drink and to log it.
Will keep using the app! I just hope I remember to use it without seeing the badge number of remaining mL, it was an awesome feature.
Mando_3008 - Bad onboarding and doesn’t work
Purchased on Apple Watch. Doesn’t load a complication - that’s the only reason I bought it. Then when you open phone app after setting up on watch you have to set it up again. Surely these apps should keep in sync! Plus, to make things worse, if you accidentally add water on the phone app (using this below average interface), there’s no way to undo or remove that water without some convoluted trek into the history tab. The aesthetic is ok, but the general user experience is very poorly designed.
The more I use this the more trash it appears. Restarted watch and got complication but it isn’t a progress bar as advertised. Just displays a text percentage. Also, the phone widget is highly unresponsive, and when you get it to work, there is a gross tick that appears. And again, you can’t undo from here. And also again, adding drink on watch is not in sync with phone. This app needs a lot of work for something that is apparently so highly rated. I definitely want a refund.
Sazinata - So much love
I love this app so much. I’ve gone from struggling 1800ml a day to overachieving my 2000ml goal with ease. I still really wish I could flick back through the days/weeks/etc in the graph view, though! I’d also really love some more achievements - all thats really left are the super long term ones, and as much as I love them, I’d love some more fun ones for the meantime! I also think it would be cool to be able to add friends and ‘compete’ - see who can hit a goal first, or just check out the days leaderboard sort of thing. As it is though, I adore this app. I love that I can set three drinks in my widget as my common amounts, which makes everything so much quicker!! Thanks so much for all the hard work you’ve put into this.
The_Giant_Cookie - Not the best app
When I bought this app I was surprised at how sleek, modern and easy it was to use. I was looking forward to start recording the amount of water I was drinking, with and Apple Watch feature as well! Awesome!
But then I discovered that the people behind the app forgot that the USA isn’t the only country in the world. And that other countries may actually be using different, more sophisticated units to measure their liquid. I just spent $4.49 on an app that I will never touch again... all because of US Oz...
Hoplite-hero - Often the simplest things are best
A generic reminder app essentially does the same thing, but there’s something about the theme and mechanics, and its integration with the Apple Watch, that makes ‘good hydration’ not only easy, but fun. Integration with other health apps is a bonus. All-round, WaterMinder does exactly what it’s designed to do—very well, and is great value for money.
AG_Bear - Water great app
Nice balance between simplicity and customisation. Super reliable sync between Watch and iPhone. Strong user interface with just the right amount of personality. The developers add new features all the time!
Some areas for improvement:
- could track caffeine intake for coffee, tea etc. and integrate with Health.
- watch app should let you hide drinks you’ll never consume (recently added on the phone but it doesn’t seem to sync)
- Watch app shows a two-week history; I’d prefer a one-day history that shows all logged items as I often forget to log water!
Max LW - Good but the volume of alerts is off
I like this app, but it annoys me that the volume of the buttons is mapped against the music/media player volume and not against the ringer volume, which means that unless you have your music app volume cranked, you can’t here the button sounds really at all.
Dev, if you’re reading this, please switch the volume control back to the ringer volume in your next update.
alanwarnock - Well designed app
I recently started using this when Garmin site went down, and I like the simple way it works, very quick and easy to keep track of water. Now use this instead of Gamin.
Esskyuu - Amazing app, keeps me on track
Love the options to choose different drink types and the ability to pair with Apple Watch. The interface is nice to look at too
Amy55667 - Meh
I purchased for $7.99. I believe that it would send a notification to my Apple Watch at each notification time with and add button. Similar to the “breath” or “time to stand” feature the Apple Watch has build in.
Bit disappoint that I don’t get this notification.
It does go to my phone but my watch would have been better.
baa76 - Excellent
Was using waterlogged but after some issues and no response from the dev switched to this. Easy to use and setup. Reminders are flexible. Variety of beverages is handy. MyFitnessPal integration would be the cherry on top 👍🏻 and would earn an extra star from me 😀
sunshineandbeaches - Can’t even get past setup
I have the new iPhone X. Just purchased this app for 4.99. Have gotten to the page where it asks for name, weight, age, climate. It will not let me move on until I enter my name, but every time I try to enter my name, the screen goes grey and I can’t enter anything even though they keyboard makes the noises. There is no way on the support page to ask a new question. I would like a refund please
Ms_latte02 - Great App!
Love that I can update my water intake through my iWatch on the go. It keeps me accountable and helps me to reach daily goal of 2.2L. Easy to use and navigate. Very customisable and I love this. One of best apps I’ve got at the moment.
Tickflick - Rev.T
Very good helpful app. Thank you it does so much to help me keep my meds sorted and remind me as I was forgetting them so often. This app has solved so many problems for me so my health should improve too now
Nasx316 - Such an awesome app
You always forget to have water but having this app has been perfect for me. I do drink a lot of water now but I feel super awesome! Highly recommend
Ugetsu53 - Data issues
The app does not update across versions very well. I can’t just update on my Apple Watch, iPhone or iPad and find the data in the others. This is inconvenient as usually you want to just enter your usage into the apparatus that is closest to hand.
Blackshapes - Perfect app!
This is a deceptively awesome app. It appears and is simple to use but its hydration tracking features are superior to any other app I’ve tried!
Wayan Denver - Great app some bugs on the watch
I log water regularly and this is the best app I’ve come across. Unfortunately maybe due to Watch OS 4 release which may cause the app to crash a bit. Other then that very happy.
iBlairS - Essential heath app!
I use this app daily, it’s a great way to track not only your water consumption but also other liquids such as coffee and tea!
Foey :-) - So far so good
Only been using for a couple of days but it’s going well. It does remind me to drink more water, in fact I’m surprised as I thought I was pretty good at staying hydrated but now I’m even better!
Dehydrated & Thirsty - Notifications Do Not Work!!!!!!!
Unbelievable, a paid “reminder” app that fails to do what it says, do not get any reminders on phone or watch. Have tried EVERYTHING (even turned off/on!!!) and still get nothing, can’t even contact support, all I get is a message saying set up mail account, ridiculous, please refund me
Pardeep Sareen - Best app ever
I have used so many apps but this is the best one for water reminder.
Leebee53 - Disappointing upgrade
The recent update of this app has removed many features I used. This includes the value of how much water I need to drink to reach my goal. I now have to manually calculate this where I used to be able to glance and get the amount.
mrExp3rtplus - Important and Easy!
This is an amazing app!
A simple to use app to help me keep track of my hydration and water intake.
The features like wing able to customise ‘cups’ with symbols and colours makes it so easy to want to use!
The Notification Centre widget and Apple Watch App make it even greater!
My only suggestions, personally, would be if you could add a symbol for a Protein Shaker Cup and an Iced Tea beverage option.
Thanks for this App!
King Disgruntled VIII - Notifications don’t work
This app would be 5 stars if the notification feature actually worked with the Apple Watch 5. Sadly it does not. Running latest iOS on both iPhone and Watch as of the date of this review.
melkcrate - Great app
Great app, just one thing missing is: when choosing coffee, as well as writing water amounts to the Apple Health app it would be good if it also wrote caffeine.
Vintagelover92 - Great
Easy to use and links with Apple Watch
SneezerNZ - Won’t launch on Apple Watch
Hi guys. Have downloaded the app to my watch and phone. Seems to work on on my phone but won’t launch on my watch - Please help
Chris/49 - Great little app!
Great app - appreciate the notifications to hydrated throughout the day :)
George mihailovski - Apple Watch app crashes
I really want to love this app. It’s beautiful and simple. But it always takes twice to open the app on Apple Watch. I can only presume it crashes the first time.
This really needs to be fixed.
gappygooster - Water Minder
At last the perfect water tracker, Apple Watch complication works great.
Pet@199 - Reminders not working on Apple Watch
I bought the app mainly for its reminder feature and it was working for a day or two and then it stopped. Very disappointed
Isaac_andy97 - Solid app
ArseClown218 - Does What It Says
Nothing special... How the hell is it worth $7 😂😂
samialalawi817 - Great app
Good app thanks!
lovelife_CJ - Feel better in days
Admittedly the first few days of trying to drink enough water to meet my goal set by the app was hard, particularly given my wine and coffee consumption historically outweighed my water intake. Within days of using the app I felt so much better, in fact I've recently began drinking more water than the app goal had set for me...possibly the years of dehydration has finally caught up with me. I enjoyed the driving water challenge and seeing virtual me fill up with water, a cool visual way to see how much water I've drank. The reminders to drink water throughout the day with customised sound effects are helpful along with the percentage drank, option to change the measurements to ml and weight to stone and Lbs. Really cool app to stay healthy, refreshed and reap the benefits of H2O
Nixhill85 - Apple Watch s5
This app is not working with my Apple Watch s5, I demand a full refund.
B big boy - Me
Ms_Mary_Mac - Very handy and makes you very aware of how much you don't drink
Fantastic app. One thing I would like is to be able to edit intake or add later for an earlier time. Sometimes logging it when I'm reminded on my phone/watch or when I'm out somewhere is not convenient so when I do log it later it seems like I've drunk a crazy amount of liquids within minutes when it may actually have happened an hour or two earlier. Great app though 😀
R.E Ari - Works well
Works well and was worth paying as the apple watch support is quite good. There are places it could be improved and i would like to see some active updates to make it better.
Id like to be able to put in other drinks such as milk and soy milk as well as coffee and alcohol and have them affect my daily hydration level but that might be something for an update :)
ozmale - dont use icloud
I would have given this app 5 stares but now I would have prefered less than 2. I used this app for ages. was excellent. Then I foolishly turned on icloud. instead of backing up to icloud is synced. while ever icloud was on and in range, all data was there. as soon as turned icloud turned off data disappeared. There is no way to get the data perminatly back to the phone. I have asked support twice about this problem with no reply.
APO. IRUMVA - Thanks for adding other drinks types
I thank you for needed improvement by adding other types of drinks, makes it easier to manage how much to drink. However how does the app quantify the amount of H2O in the coffee? The overall app now is awesome. May be the interface may be improved in the future updates. Thank you again.
R,B - Flaky
Whilst using the app has certainly gamified drinking water - something I really needed - the phone and watch don't talk together reliably. Logging from both devices throughout the day, they will most often than not (almost always) be different at the end of the day. Iron out the bugs and it will be much better. Also, the ability to rearrange drink vessels would be great, as would being able to add glasses. I think it's always added as a bottle? Great start though.
Oz_guy - Great App.
We all need to drink more water. I love the notifications and was surprised on how little water I was drinking throughout the day. Now with this app I have got my water intake up and feeling healthier!!! Thanks heaps. The option to change to metric/kilos/litres is in the settings once you set the app up. Would be good if the metric option was in the initial setup screens though :)
BBwolfie - Extraordinary!
It does so much! It's completely customisable to make it easy and quick to use and it's made me healthier. This app actually helps and is a great idea and gives me motivation. I definitely would use other apps from this developer and I definitely suggest trying it for yourself
mcgleury - Works for Aussies!
A previous reviewer stated it was imperial only. Not true. Once you get past the initial screen asking for your weight in pounds, you can go into settings and change to metric. You can then easily revise your weight. I like the app. Does its job well. Worth a buck if you need motivation to keep up your water intake.
Jee dub - Easy, motivating, watch app needs a boost
After trying a few different apps to track water consumption, I've found this one works great for me.
Customisable reminders throughout the day, customisable glass/bottle defaults, all adding together to make it easy to remember and track my water.
Only downsides would be that the watch app is a bit sluggish in updating the water for the day, and that the app icon notification number (red dot on the icon) doesn't update unless you open the app (and because I normally update via the Notification widget, it can be a pain to have to open the app, just to update the app notification number).
Overall: good app, happy I got it :)
GeeTee60 - Great reminder!
I am notorious for not drinking enough water but this app keeps me on track to meet my daily needs. They say we should get up from our desks every half hour just for a couple of minutes to maintain health. This app helps with that too... If you get my meaning! ;-)
RolandCharlotteFernandes - H2O can we live without it
Keeping up the body fluids is crucial and there is nothing better than a clean glass of water but the key is having enough and I think the app does a great deal of reminding us how much we are missing out on. Now I can at least drink half of my normal requirements. Great app :)

Daki2 - Great app
Excellent integration with Apple watch. Simple but full of features needed for hydration tracking. Highly recommend.
Thestudness - Thank you
Thank you for not making this a crazy money grab app like the others. Love having Apple Watch support! Makes this a fun easy way to track my water intake. And a huge thank you for not tracking. Other water apps track precise location, and that turns me right away. Respect for privacy, Apple Watch support, no ads, optional tip jar; you guys rock! 5/5 rating for sure.
MexiCanuck - Almost what I want
I have this on my iPhone and watch. Before having this, every morning on my way to work, I would remember that I needed to drink at least 2.5 L that day.
Every evening, on my way home from work, I would remember that I failed to drink my water that day. Since I installed this I have not had a single day in which I drank less than 2.5 L of water.
So why is it not what I want?
Frequently, the app reminds me to drink water minutes after I have reported to it that I just drank 300 mL or 500 mL of water.
When the app become smarter and gives me reminders based on time and when I most recently reported that I drink water it will be what I truly want.
For now, I appreciate that I am remaining hydrated, even with the minor irritation of the app not being smart.
MistaDemon - Performance of watch app seriously degraded with watchos4
Used to be an awesome app quick to update. Since upgrading to watchos4, performance has degraded significantly. App freezes, crashes, takes up to 30 seconds to accurately refresh, even with background app refresh enabled.
This used to be my water-minding go to app. I believe I will start looking for alternatives if stability isn’t attained in a very-near-future update.
JazzyCLB - Not that flexible
Can’t seem to make corrections. Annoying.
BigFoot_Yeti - Meh
I report on my watch 24oz of water and the app then reports 6 times 24oz. You try to remove one from the app and they all are deleted. Great app on the watch. At least it’s accurate.
Mail91 - Needs some work
Data updates to your other iOS devices is slow or none existent please check and fix please
CanJMom - There is barely a point
I was happy to pay for this well reviewed app. It has never once in the month I’ve been using it been able to launch the app from a notification on my watch. I also expected the notifications to be personalized - to take into account my goal for the day and how much I have already had to drink that day - it dos not provide that. It is just set timed reminders, a graphic and digital confetti. I could have set a recurring alarms and tracked using Apple health just as easily and for free.
MasterBigPom - Nice but ...
I used to have another app but saw yours was nicer and potentially better ... I was willing to pay the price, and so far it’s good. Unfortunately, even if you can configure coffee, it is not maintaining the caffeine levels in the health app. You should be able to customize variables on the drinks (caffeine, sugar) so it feeds these values just like the water levels.
I love the customization of cup sizes and variety, but I still need to manually input my caffeine mg% ...
absluthra - Why not family sharing + no mac store support?
All good with app but why I am not able to share it with my family members. The app supports family sharing but when my family member clicks on the download option its asking for purchase.
Secondly, when i try to download the same app from my macbook apple store, it asks for purchase. Why this more inconvenience ? It is supposed to work seamlessly across all my devices.
Please solve my issue and i will increase my ratings to 5 star.
Quran Class TV - Simply Excellent
I have used multiple apps to record my intake may it be food, nutrients (micro/macro), recorded calories, even though this app is not meant for that, it is in fact simple enough to be used at a daily basis.
It does have many functions but the best part is that it’s simply designed enough to be not complicated. If you are utilizing this app for medical purpose, it’s the best thing you can do. It does not have ads and other on the face distraction let me be useful or not.
It lets you focus on making sure that you get the right amount of liquid intake you need daily.
It has a super simple way to see your data and stats and make it’s harder for you to input previous data which makes you even more attentive to record your intake daily and accurately.
I have bought this long time ago, and forgot to use it, but recently the auto targeting based on your weight, temperature and activity level, it helped me to improve my health.
I don’t like subscriptions because rarely they are affordable in the long term of these sorts of apps but trust me, if there is paid update which I have to do to get more functions every year or so, I would go for it.
I am grateful I got and bought this app a long time ago.
Dhskwbzud - Great app but
Great app but I think it should go a little beyond just water for the 7 bucks CAD you pay for it. Maybe add data collection on caffeine, calcium etc. Plus you already have coffee, milk etc. With the app so could you just register it to the apple health app with the appropriate amount of ex: caffeine in a cup of 250 ml of coffee to the health app.
ezequielfriscia - Almost There
I have it three stars because of just one reason; the app registers several drinks besides water but it remarks the ability to track coffee BUT it won’t register caffeine levels with Health app. This is a must have and kinda confusing too, only after purchase one can realize that it won’t do it the right way. Besides that the app it’s flawless, I just think I was left without one important feature.
Garemz - Doesn’t remember what I entered
Seems like this latest version every time I enter that a Dean water, the next time I open the app to enter more it says I haven’t entered anything please fix very annoying
Dominique J. - Perfect for Kidney transplant !
As a recent kidney transplant patient, i had to mesure every ML of drink i ingest. This app is so well done and easy to use, but yet offer so much options to customize your experience. Its very well crafted, never crashed and looks pretty good on the user interface side. And also, the options to use an apple watch link to the iPhone app is amazing, and work perfectly. I strongly recommend it !
Go-Fish-999999 - Excellent hydration app
This app reminds me when to rehydrate and with the widgets and Apple Watch support makes it much easier to stay hydrated! I would highly recommend this app!
Markie Moose - Widget
Great app. Widget has reverted back to old style. Is there a way to activate new widgets?
Kios976! - Love the widgets for iOS 14!
The widgets are excellent. I love the easy access to log my water intake!
rodtasm - Great app!
Very user-friendly and fun to use.
Jhodgki - Super
**Retour rapide et efficace. Merci beaucoup. Tout fonctionne à merveille!**
Cela fait un certain nombre de mois que l’app bug. Il m’est impossible d’ajouter mes consommations d’eau à même la montre. L’app s’ouvre mais par la suite l’écran fige. Il fait que je passe par l’iphone pour ajouter mes consommations. Please fix it. Iphone 7 et Apple Watch 3. Merci.
MotherFerH - Not sync
Data on iPhone and Apple watch are different. I added a data on Apple watch but it didn't come to my iPhone.
lieut_data - Transformed my health, but watch app laggy
Tracking my water intake has utterly transformed my health - thank you!
I have two issues with the app. First, the reminders to drink water aren’t “smart” — they just go off at the prescribed time, even if you just downed 500ml. I’d love if they would remind me when I haven’t drank water in a while and I’m still behind my daily goal.
Secondly, and more frustrating, is a lag in the corresponding watch app. The first tap of the day is quick, but subsequent taps often seem to freeze, and then I tap again thinking it didn’t register, only for it to “catch up” a few seconds later and double count my drink. This is also the only app I’ve ever had to force kill on the watch since it sometimes dies altogether.
3/5 stars primarily for the lagginess. Still the best available from what I can find.
Myrcuriel - The best water intake tracker/reminder
I’ve used a bunch of these water reminder apps, trying to find my favourite. All the others had either monthly paid subscriptions, malfunctioning features, or poor support with infrequent updates.
WaterMinder is fantastic, and worth the one-time price. The widget works, and is customizable. Siri Shortcuts work. All kinds of drinks besides water are included, which add to your hydration level appropriately (not just a 1:1 ratio with water, like some apps). It’s been around a long time, and updates are regular.
Reminders are customizable, and include pleasant alert sounds. The customization options for the UI are useful, and there is a dark mode, which you can choose to toggle on permanently or automatically depending on the time.
As an intersex person, the gender requirement is confusing, as I’m not sure what to choose, or what difference it makes. Perhaps a more specific option might be better, like a slider for metabolism (or whatever bodily function that’s actually being used for the gender option). An androgynous avatar in the default UI would be nice too, but the alternative UI doesn’t have an avatar, and it’s ultimately a very minor complaint.
I’m very happy with this app!
yupyupzip - Beneficial
Seems like a dumb idea but it worked for me. Watch reminds me to drink and I do it.
It is also true that it works with the other health apps.
GenuinelyHoneat - Reminder Feature
What sold me was the reminder feature and it also goes right to my Apple Watch.
SKaren2019 - Great but not great for my watch
Th app works great, even with minor bugs. That being said, it kills the battery on my watch if I use it as a complication. I’ve done all the steps to fix it to no avail.
Dr Musani - Marvelous
It’s a very practical app
Haewood.Jablomi - Not worth the money
The app works ok; I haven’t experienced any bugs yet. But for what it does, it would be overpriced at $3. Really not worth $6.
lemondrop2244 - Great app
A lot of customization of drinks, your character, reminders etc. 👍🏻👍🏻 Really good way to remember to drink water 💦
ksnyder116 - Great app but not perfect
I would definitely recommend this if you are wanting to drink more water on a regular basis. Overall the app on the phone and Apple Watch is great and what you would expect. Not a fan of the additional purchases on top of paying for the app. This business practice resembles the video game extra dlc type thing. Not cool at all but otherwise great app and I hope to see fun and interactive future free updates.
AmyHL2005 - Response slower than previous version
Clicked on plus sign to record the water taken. The result shows much slower than old version. I am on 11 Pro with latest iOS.
Amana.5679532 - Great!
This app is great to keep track of how much water you drink. Love how it connects to Apple Watch. Only thing is I wonder why, after spending $7 on the app, that we still have to pay MORE to unlock characters? I believe that $7 is a hefty app price as it is. Not sure if I would purchase again... probably would just stick to a free app since the extra fun options on this one cost more money.
respect the views - Too Top expensive
Too expensive.If I wanted to get reminders I have a FREE reminder app on my phone provided by apple
PGDEMON - Not worth $6.99
The function is limited. It worths no more than $1.99. I feels like I was scammed when I read through the review.
Creekside99 - Not great
Don’t like app. It adds coffee as hydration
Fabeeo79 - Great
I really like the app, the only problem is that the the Apple Watch version of it doesn’t update, in particular the value of water intake does not reset on a new day, so I’m still seeing the value from yesterday. Can you please fix this? Thanks
UPDATE: it works actually, the complication updates when you open the phone app
M4573RMZD - Works great with the Apple Watch
Excellent app works very well with the Apple Watch. You can customize the amounts you drink. Based on my body measurements it asks me to drink what seems like a ton of water. If I try to satisfy the recommended water intake dictated by the app I will constantly visit the the washroom. Other than that it is a very simple app which meshes well with the Apple Watch and health app.
YosephBarrett - Great
Did not work initially as I wanted. E mailed support who responded immediately and explained and sorted all out. Great service Kriss !
FlavioD4 - Great!
I always forget to drink water
CanGib - Data glitch with health app
Easy to use but it repeats the data in the health app multiple times. I’ll drink one cup and I can see that up to four entries are made in the health app.
please add clock - Edit a Drink in Your History? Can’t anymore
So the folks at WaterMinder updated their
app! Nice... But to edit a drink in history used to be explained by them. No more; neither online nor the AppStore. Hello??!! You come out with a new car and don’t tell buyers that the gas pedal is on the left, the clutch pedal is in the middle and the break pedal is on the right?? Hello WaterMinder.... should you not have anticipated this? Whoever dropped the ball needs to spend a day in ‘propeller head’ jail. Thank you. Follow up: I was able to figure out how to edit history (swipe up on screen). Wish you had kept the line graph display instead of the new bar chart.
MikePid - Great way to get me to drink more water!
I have WaterMinder set as a complication on most of my Apple Watch faces so I can easily log and track my water intake. Easy to customize to include quick entries for smoothies, water bottle, etc.
G the B - Improving
The last update seems to have solved the syncing issue I was having between the Apple Watch and iPhone, however, the watch’s complication still doesn’t match the app on either the watch or phone. For example, the complication will show 12% complete while the phone and watch app show 17% complete.
StillNotRinnerz - Apple watch
Why not make it clear you need OS6 for watches to use? Now the app is useless and there goes my money. False advertisment.
R5ofourheros - Worth it
It makes me drink water way more than normal. Having the challenge of drinking a minimum per day is great (based off your body weight) the metals you win make it fun aswell and you can simply tell Siri to log your water
Charliewonderpug - Excellent application
Fantastic app with great watch support!
Punstoppable - Fantastic!
Simple and easy to use, and I can see my history of what I drink. Highly recommend!
BlueJellyBean2360 - Love the widget!
It’s the only app so far that has a widget to quick add drinks without even having to open the app! I also love the fact that there aren’t any annoying ads. This app will definitely be a keeper 👍
j doerksen - Good but could be better
For a 6 dollar app it does leave a bit to be desired. Still cheaper then paying monthly for some of the other apps. Personally I wish you could just pre set cup sizes and not have to include a drink type. That way you can select your custom cup size then just select what ever beverage you had in that cup. For instance I drink water and juice out of the same cup size, but instead of having only one custom cup size I would need two to cover off both of these drinks. The custom cups are nice but they assume you only drink one type of beverage out of a single size of glass. I have probably 4-5 different cup sizes from which I drink a large variety of different beverages from. Essentially the custom cup size should be exactly that and not include type of beverage.
Unhappy user126 - Is not compatible with watchos4
I’ve been trying to get the app to work with my new Apple Watch but it won’t seem to work. Keeps on telling me to refresh on my iPhone app but it does not work. I have been reading reviews and forums and it seems a number of other users are having the same issues as me too.

@WaterMinder_app Is the sync on macOS broken? It doesn’t show anything on macOS when I log something on iOS, but it works vice versa (macOS -> iOS) 🤷♂️

@WaterMinder_app Restarting didn’t work, but installing directly from the watch did. Thanks!
@Jarrodbcall Hi! Have you tried restarting both devices? Another way would be to directly install from the App Store on the Apple Watch.
@WaterMinder_app I am unable to install the app on my Apple Watch, even though installing other apps works. I’ve tried deleting and resinstalling. Any suggestions?
