Working professionals are not drinking enough water.
According to data from the National Health & Nutrition Examination Surveys, the average professional drinks a little more than 4 cups of plain water per day.
Today, the recommended daily water intake is 3.7 liters (15 cups) for the average adult male and 2.7 liters (11 cups) for the average adult female. My objective was to create a mobile app that helps users reach their necessary daily water intake per day.
The Water(+) Drink app has the ability to suggest the daily amount of water needed, based on gender, age, weight, and daily goals. Users can gain even more insights about their daily intake by analyzing their data through their statistics screen. Ideally, this type of app would be sponsored by a company like Smartwater.
User interviews uncovered most people want to drink more water but it lacked priority within their busy lives. They agreed that having a notification or reminder would make them more likely to put an effort towards drinking more water. Some users even desired statistics on their water intake to keep them accountable in reaching their daily goal.
The ideal user is a working professional. Their demanding schedules and responsibilities made them prone to deprioritizing their daily water intake. With the ability to set daily goals and reminders, the Water(+) app is the solution for users to reach their water intake goals.
User Flows & Wireframes
Taking into account the busy ideal user, I created an easy design flow that sets up their stats based on gender, age, weight, and daily goal. On the home screen, the app displays essential information and allows adjustments to be easily made within 1–2 clicks.
I employed high contrast and simple displays to ensure our user could easily understand the information. The Water(+) Drink app is native to the user's device which allows the user to run the app, regardless of connectivity. Individual screens provide intake information, statistics, and the ability to set reminders to drink more water.
Users gain a personal assessment of where they stand on their daily goal intake. With clear percentile breakdowns, a user can see where they have fallen short or improved from their day-to-day.
I created a prototype with InVision. I'm always looking to improve, so if you have any suggestions you would like to share, please send me a message at email@example.com
