Interbike: CamelBak Launches FlowMeter
The CamelBak Flow Meter answers the most frequently asked question about hands-free, reservoir-powered hydration: "How much water do I have left?"
The Flow Meter is an intelligent personal hydration accessory that can be customized based on individual needs and activity level. It greatly reduces the risk of running out of water and the hassle of taking the pack off to see how much is left.
It also provides peace of mind by allowing the user to know how much water has been consumed as well as ensuring personal hydration goals are met. Additionally, it tells the user how much remains in the reservoir and approximate time until empty status.
“This demonstrates our continued commitment of listening to our customers and acting on their feedback,” Jon Austen, Director of Product Management for CamelBak told Roadcycling.com at Interbike. “The Flow Meter provides intelligent hydration information for the user, an ideal technical accessory for outdoor enthusiasts and performance athletes.”
It is easy to integrate with any CamelBak reservoir and will be available at retail locations starting this October for around US$30.
