GSN Review: Philips GoZero Hydration Bottle

Philips recently launched an innovative new self-cleaning water bottle that uses the power of UV-C LED light to both clean water and sanitize the bottle itself. The Philips GoZero Smart Bottle is the second entry under the new Philips GoZero label launched just this past October in North America.

The GoZero Smart bottle features UV-C LED technology integrated into the cap of the bottle and activated at the touch of a button. Within minutes, the LED light eliminates up to 99.999% bacteria and 99.9% viruses from water, allowing users to enjoy fresh, clean water from virtually any source.

Additionally, the bottle’s UV-C LED light can also disinfect the bottle itself after use – whether you’re drinking water, coffee, tea, juice, soda, or other beverages – cleaning the hardest-to-reach corners of the interior to eliminate foul odors, prevent bacterial build-up, and refresh the bottle for a refill.

The GoZero Smart Bottle is designed to be intuitively easy to use. The bottle’s high-tech cap features an LED light ring that indicates when the bottle is clean and ready to use. This indicator ring also displays the bottle’s battery life. When it’s time to charge, simply attach the included magnetic USB cable to the cap and use it for up to 30-days before having to plug it back in. Constructed of a double-walled, insulated food-grade stainless steel, the bottle is dishwasher safe and can keep liquids hot for 12 hours and cold for up to 24 hours.

The self-cleaning GoZero Smart Bottle is  available on Amazon in two different sizes – 12 oz. and 20 oz. – and four designer colors – black, grey, yellow, and blue.

GSN’s Remarks: One thing I’ve learned over the years is to keep hydrated. This is especially important if you are a working bartender. Sometimes, it’s all you can do to find a chance to take a sip of water when you are in the weeds.

What we like about this new water bottle is that it is metal, has a rubber carrying handle, holds hot or cold liquids, has a smooth drinking rim, and best of all, it self sanitizes and purifies itself on a regular basis. We can actually taste the difference in the water afterwards. It seems purer, fresher and near to spring water. Really, this is everything we could ask for in a water bottle whether we’re behind the stick, at home, or in the great outdoors. We recommend the 20 oz. bottle as a better value.
