Here is a little bit more info on how the glow works.
Your bottle will glow throughout the day during your awake hours, which are set within the app under Settings (Gear icon on lower right > Reminders. The set Wake up and Go To Sleep times determine the hours you're awake per day.
We take your goal and divide it among your awake hours to determine where you should be throughout the day to meet your goal.
In the app, select Settings (Gear icon on lower right > Reminders > Bottle Glow Reminders > Remind me when? Select when you'd like to receive Glow notifications by choosing either Always remind me, or Only when I'm behind.
The Home page of the app displays your daily goal, current totals, and progress for the day. You'll notice your progress circle fill in with White ( in Dark Mode) and Teal (in Light Mode), displaying your current total. You'll also notice a "Target" symbol, which indicates where your progress should be at that time - to meet your goal for that day.
If you set your Glow notifications to Always remind me, your bottle will ignore your current daily progress and glow at equal intervals during your set awake hours.
- If your awake time totals 15 hours per day, you've set the maximum of 12 glows per day, and chosen Always remind me; your bottle will glow to remind you approximately every 1 1/2 hours throughout your awake time - regardless of your daily progress
If you've chosen to be reminded Only when I'm behind, your bottle will only glow to remind you when you're behind pace to meet your goal. If your current progress is behind the "Target" symbol, you're behind pace at that time to meet your daily goal, and your bottle will glow.
- If your progress is ahead of the "Target" symbol, you've set the maximum of 12 glows per day, and chosen Only when I'm behind; your bottle will not glow, as you're currently ahead of pace to meet your goal. *If you remain ahead of your goal for the entire day, your bottle will not glow at all - regardless of the number of glows per day selected.
Keep in mind, we also send clever reminders to help you stay hydrated, in the form of push notifications on your phone. Go to Settings (Gear icon on lower right > Reminders > App Reminders to set these up in your app.
