What you need to know

  • Thirstic can track your water intake to make sure you're drinking enough.
  • The app can check the current weather and pull your activity data from the Health app to make sure you're drinking enough.

The App Store is not short of water tracking apps. But few, if any, do what Thirstic does. By plugging into the Health app to check on your activity and watching the weather outside, Thirstic can track exactly how much water you should be drinking based on how much you're using.

Thirstic is the perfect fitness and health companion. Doing your regular workout on Tuesday evening? Thirstic will learn the patterns and update your suggested water intake automatically. Heatwave on the horizon? Thirstic will automatically increase your suggested intake.

Because of that, Thirstic can adapt to your usage and then remind you to drink water at just the right time. Oh, and there's an Apple Watch app to keep all of this on your wrist, too.
