Get in Gear: Gadget Bottle

Chances are when you workout, you have a water bottle close by to stay hydrated. That's not all I like to have with me though. If I go for a run outside, I usually have my keys, and if I'm at the gym, I like to keep my cell phone handy in case of an emergency (like where is the 2-year-old's ever precious Snuggle Bunny?).

Most of us don't have pockets on our spandex pants or tank top, so where then can you put that extra stuff? I just came across this Gadget Bottle ($8.25) which solves that problem.

This water bottle comes with a little space for your small stuff and a band around the bottle to keep it secure. It's a clever idea, but there's one little problem. Condensation. You've got to be sure that the item you're securing to the bottle is water resistant.

So tell me, do you think you'd use this Gadget Bottle or not?

I would totally use it if I was just working out at the gym on campus. It could hold my ID and my keys without me constantly having to track them down.

cuba dog is so right, just slap a rubber band around some deer park and go! :)

nope wouldn't use it. I'd be afraid of my keys falling off my water bottle when in the bike holder. I just ether bag my keys and ID in a pouch and stuff in my top, in my bra or between the boobs. Amazing what your chest and a good top can hold. :-)

I like the idea. Not to keep cellphones/cameras, but certainly the granola bar.

It amazes me that people spend money on things that they can easily and cheaply make themselves. I'm not crafty at all, but it requires no skill. A kid in kindergarten could make this. However, the makers of these products know that people can but won't make things like this, so from a money-making perspective it's a good idea. Capitalizing on people's laziness/need to spend money on useless crap is one of the things that keeps industry moving. The only thing this bottle has that the home made version doesn't is the flat side.

i used to do this all the time. I had a hair rubber band or two on my water bottle and i'd stick my keys and gym card in it. Hmph... who knew i could try and sell it... although i do find it very gimmicky

Seriously agreeing here w/ the rubber band comments. Why spend $9 when you can grab some rubber bands from your desk?

I think I could do the same thing with a rubberband.

It's a great idea but I agree...what about the condensation? They should make it sweat-proof!
