If you've ever wanted to try being invisible, cycling on a busy road at night is a good start. Adding front and rear lights is obviously a good move, but for side-on visibility, things get a little more tricky. Italian cycling company Elite is trying to solve that with something surprisingly simple: a light-up water bottle.

Four years ago the Clean Bottle arrived with a true innovation: a removable cap on either end that made it incredibly easy to properly clean. A few years later an upgraded version called the Square arrived that swapped curves for a rectangular design that wouldn't roll away if dropped. And now its creators are introducing a third take, the larger Square 2.0, that introduces swappable inserts like a fast-flow water filter or a flavour infuser.

When it comes to watering, there's nothing stopping you from simply dumping a bottle of H2O onto the plants on your balcony, as long as you're cool with possibly damaging them and splashing wet dirt all over the place.

Moving the water filter from the pitcher in your fridge to the reusable bottle you carry around all day means you can safely refill it anywhere. The catch, however, is that most filtered water bottles either require you to suck like a vacuum cleaner, or squeeze the bottle into submission to get the water through the filter. Not KOR's new Nava though; it features a specially designed straw and coconut shell filter so it's easy to sip.

Genius comes in all shapes and sizes, and in this case it's a cylindrical 475mL water bottle called the Hydros that features a brilliant access port on the side of the cap that lets you fill it from the shortest of taps, or shallowest of sinks. No longer do you have to craft a makeshift funnel with your hand, or horror of horrors, only fill your bottle halfway.

Before you get too excited at the prospect of conveniently spraying hot coffee or other beverages directly into your mouth, this insulated water bottle masquerading as an aerosol can is actually lacking any kind of propellants. So what could have been a revolution in refreshment ends up being nothing more than a novel way of staying hydrated.

You can't go out on a run without your keys — or your phone, money, water and energy gels — but carrying that stuff is annoying. The challenge gets a bit easier with the handy pocketed strap on the Runner by Clean Bottle, which attaches to a water bottle for easy access and portability.
