SPRING

Spring is here, what now?

You finally have your Spring and you’re ready to become the Hydration Queen? You’ll be hitting those hydration goals in no time! Here’s a video from Urska, one of the co-founders of Bellabeat, where she shows you how to use your new Spring!

 

Pair it, drink it, sync it!

 

The first step towards enjoying your Spring is downloading the companion Bellabeat app. You can find it HERE if you use an iOS device, or HERE if you are an Android user. In case you already have the Leaf, all you have to do is open up your Bellabeat app!

 

Now that you have the app, it’s time to Pair your Spring! Pairing is the initial process of setting up your Spring. You can do this by simply opening up your app, turning on your Bluetooth and following the instructions on the screen. For more detailed step-by-step instructions follow THIS LINK to our Spring support page.

 

Paired your Spring? That’s great, you must be getting so excited, we know we are!

The next step is calibrating your Spring. Calibrating your bottle is important when setting up the Spring for the first time to ensure accurate hydration tracking. The app will guide you through every step making calibration an easy process, but if you want to be extra safe you can always follow the tutorial on THIS LINK.

Done?

That’s great news, because it means you’re ready to start using your Spring! Fill it up and start hydrating!

What now?

Your Spring will be reminding you to drink water by sending you push notifications from the app, to your phone. So make sure you have allowed push notifications for the Bellabeat app!

Once you would like to see your water intake progress and how close you are to hitting your hydration goal, all you have to do is sync your bottle!

It’s a very easy process, don’t worry. Make sure you turned on the Bluetooth on the device you are using your Bellabeat app on, go into the app, press the sync button (circle with two arrow heads), and just shake, shake, shake your Spring!

For a more guidance while syncing your Spring, please follow THIS LINK.

 

Wondering how you can change your units of measurement?

Here’s how!

To change the general units for tracking Spring, go to your app settings and click on your profile (name and email address). This will allow you to edit your profile and the units you wish to be tracked in. It’s just that easy. 🙂

 

Now you’re ready to start your hydration journey and take that valuable step towards health!

What now?

    I received my Spring this week (the violet ice version) and can honestly say that I really enjoy this product.
    I’ve read that some people have been saying it’s smaller than they thought; I believe that it is the perfect size. It fits in my hands nicely and having to refill it just give me an excuse to get up from my desk and move.
    The base is also padded with the same silicon rubber as the grip so you won’t crack it if you happen to set it down on a surface too hard. It’s very easy to set up (very intuitive), and clean as all pieces come apart .
    I love the size of the mouthpiece; it’s not too big or too small. The rubber grips more than make up for not have a loop or handle.
    It’s a litte heavier than I’m used to, but I’m alright with the change.

    The app features are pretty simple, but effective.
    One detail that I haven’t seen mentioned is that you can give your Spring (and your leaf) it’s own name.
    You have three time slots (morning 8am-12pm, afternoon 12-4pm, and evening4-8pm) and select the days you wish to receive reminders. However, reminders are fixed at 2 hours intervals so you can’t change how frequent you would like reminders; I’m wondering if this is done to pace you properly.
    The app takes into consideration height, weight, and DOB (as well as pregnancy and breastfeeding) and your activity level. The website states that it also takes into account location, but it’s not very clear in the setup how that is done.

    It is a bit pricy, but it’s very sturdy and well made…so you get what you pay for.

    I would make a few suggestions regarding the app features, for example:
    1. It would be nice to have the notifications a little more clear that you should probably take a drink i.e. Time to take a sip: (and then the neat little facts or motivational data they list).
    2. It would also be nice if you could manually input if you had any coffee/caffeine since it’s “considered a diuretic”.
    3. It would also be a fun feature to have listed how many plastic bottles you’ve saved by using a reuseable bottle.

    This is a lovely product and I have no regrets about buying this. I wanted a tool to help me more accurately keep track of how much I should drink (rather than using an app that kept giving me different volumes) and when I need to drink and I got that. Overall I would recommend this product to a friend or family member.
