This jug has been perfect to help me increase my hydration especially living in Florida. I like the times to help encourage me to catch up with my water intake. The flip top is extremely convenient as well. My only down side is the "timer" start at 7am (which is very minor), and I don't really start drinking water until 9am because I usually drink chai/coffee in the morning on my way to work so I generally start the day way behind especially when I fill it up to 3500 ml. This is common among bottles like this so I don't hold it against the manufacturer. I would also like to add that the bottle saves me money since I take it with me and generally don't need to buy anything else to drink. Overall, I am extremely pleased with this bottle and my only regret is that I didn't buy it sooner. By the way, it's also a great conversation piece when people walk into my office.
