Sleek and modern design
This LIZ smart double stainless steel bottle is a modern and stylish design that provides above and beyond what regular bottles can do. Besides the primary use of this bottle to keep beverages warm/ cold for hours "except milk," it does have a key feature that makes it unlike any other beverage bottle, which is UV sterilization. From my testing of it, it does a good job achieving about 6 hours of keeping my water cold. This beverage bottle stands out in UV-sterilizing beverages, and the touch lid indicates the type of beverage inside the bottle. The lid is rechargeable as it is the main part of this bottle because it houses the UV-sterilization device. The functionality of the lid capacitive touch sensor:
1. Pless and hold to turn on/ off the UV sterilization whether the bottle is empty or contains a beverage which makes it like a regular bottle.
2. Double-tap to being UV-sterilization
3. Shake and one tap to check the beverage temperature red for hot/ blue for cold/ yellow for tepid.
4. The lid glows every two hours as a Hydration reminder
5. Red light to indicate the charging status
My takeaways from this smart bottle: One single charge that lasts for a month is significant as I don't have the charge it every day, and this is attributed to the non-existence of the Bluetooth feature that drains the battery. However, I feel okay with that since the charging lasts for a month and depends on the use. The quality build is outstanding, and elegant design and the rubber pad gives good grip and prevents surfaces from being marked or stained, and 2 hours reminder from the lid that glows white light. The Noerden app on smartphones is simple and does not require Bluetooth connectivity, but it does require creating an account and choosing the daily hydration goals, and entering other personal info such as height, weight, etc. In my case, I have iPhone, so I could sync my hydration data with the Health app to track daily data.
I need this bottle to remind me to drink water through my busy day. Charging is east and quick. The blue light is bright and catches your attention. Only 2 complaints. If the bottle it’s close you can completely miss the reminder and the size of the bottle needs to be bigger. I fill it multiple times a day. Over good concept.
I have had many thermal bottles over the years, most have been for keeping my water chilled but
every once in a while I would use them to keep my tea hot. I have never really thought about a “smart bottle” so when I saw the Noerden LIZ Smart UV bottle (Liz from now on) I was curious and decided to get it.
Inside the packaging comes the Liz, USB A male to Micro B cable attached to a removable proprietary charger head and the usual paperwork. First off I have to say I really like the design of the bottle, it is beautiful. I got the matte black variant and the look and feel are solid to me. The bottle has a textured finish that is a perfect match between smooth and rough. It feels well built and sturdy in the hand and I don’t doubt it will be durable for years to come. Also I’d like to point out that it seems to have a skid-proof base that keeps it in place on surfaces and it doesn’t sweat like some other bottles do when it contains cold liquids.
When it comes to the smart features, I am impressed with what Noerden has done with the Liz. All the smartness of this bottle is housed in the cap which has the UV-C light emitter as well as the temperature sensor which is interacted with by the very top surface of the cap. The cap is not only touching capacitive but also has a LED indicator(the ring and power button on top), with various taps and presses doing different things. A long hold either turns off the bottle (it lights up white once) or turns it on ( lights up white and blinks 4 times). A single tap does a temperature check (which I’ve tested and confirmed with my own thermometer) and returns a blue light if your beverage is under below 36℃ / 98℉, an amber/yellow light if between 367℃ / 98℉ and 60℃ / 140℉ and a red light for beverages above 60℃ / 140℉. This visual cue is very useful and I appreciate that it is so easy to check this.
When it comes to activating the UV-C light, two taps on top does the job and it lights up white and blinks slowly for the next 3-4 minutes. According to Noerden this kills 99.9% of all bacteria snd viruses provided that the bottle is either empty or has very clear water inside. You tap the top twice again to stop it at any time before the sterilization finishes or you can open the lid which will automatically turn off the UV light and it will flash red to signify this.
When it comes to battery, its hard to confirm when this will run out. I have used it for a couple of days now with me never turning it off and doing multiple sterilizations and it still has juice. When I initially charged it ( note it was not dead right out the box) it took about an hour and a half to fully charge. While charging the cap blinked red slowly and when fully charged it maintained a steady while light.
With regards to maintaining your beverage temperature. It does a great job with insulation, and I can confirm it does keep hot liquids hot to warm for at least 11 hours, and when it comes to cold liquids it does approach 24 hours of keeping them cold, with me still seeing ice cubes inside after 19 hours of use. Also it does hydration reminders every two hours, with the LED indicator lighting up with the colour of the respective temperature range.
Honestly, I never thought about a bottle having the features the Liz does and the only thing I think they could have done to make this bottle better would be to create an app that connects to the bottle and tells you your battery remaining or the current temperature of your beverage. In any case this is a great affordable bottle and I definitely recommend it.
This new LIZ Smart Bottle from Noerden is really neat! There are so many cool features packed into this little water bottle it makes drinking water fun. First off, the looks of this water bottle are incredible. I love how sleek and modern it looks; the matte black powder coating is perfect. The size is great as it fits into cup holders nicely and isn’t too big for a gym bag or placing on your desk. The bottle cap is what makes this water bottle a smart bottle with how much tech is in it. With a quick shake and single tap to the center of the top of the cap, a led ring will display the temperature with a blue for cold, amber for warm, and red for hot. Some of the cool features include a UV-C light inside of the bottle that cleans the empty bottle or clear liquids that may be inside. With two taps to the water bottle’s cap, the UV-C light goes to work and kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria, that is amazing! The led ring will blink white while the UV-C light is at work. Every two hours the cap will blink blue as a reminder to drink some water. I love taking this water bottle with me wherever I go and know that my water will stay cold for up to 24 hours and if I bring a hot tea the tea will stay hot for up to 12 hours. The bottle comes with a magnetic charging cable that sticks to the side of the cap. The battery life lasts a whopping full month of power!
There is a Noerden APP that can be downloaded to aid in the LIZ Smart Bottle experience. The bottle does not connect to Bluetooth, but the app is there as more of a fitness tracker and can track water intake and even set reminders on when to hydrate. The APP can also connect to other Noerden products like their bathroom scales.
Overall, I am impressed with this water bottle with all its features and looks. If you have the extra money, as I do see this as being a more luxury item and certainly a conversational product that might get people asking about it, it is totally worth it. I was skeptical at first, but I now grab this bottle several times a day and can already see my water intake rise. I love that I can count on my water to be clean and kept cold all day long. I love this water bottle!!
Is the lid flashing red when attempting to use the bottle for the first time? This happened to me too, and I found this useful little note on page 13 of the manual: remove the lid and leave it off for 10 minutes. Put the lid back on the bottle and it should then work normally.
The NOERDEN LIZ water bottle looks like a “normal” stainless steel water bottle and you probably wouldn’t be able to tell that it contains some “smarts” just by looking at it. There is also a rubber anti-skid bottom to help prevent the bottle from sliding around on a table. A small NOERDEN logo is located on the front of the bottle near the bottom.
The lid of the LIZ bottle contains the “smarts” with touch controls, LED ring light, and a UV sterilization LED on the bottom that goes in the bottle.
The bottle is fairly narrow so it should fit in most cupholders, making it convenient for taking on the go.
The bottle can be turned on and off by touching and holding the touchpad on the top until the LED flashes white.
Once the bottle is filled with liquid, double-tap the touch control to activate the UV sanitation LED. The lid will pulse while the sanitation process runs, which lasts about 5 minutes. The company claims that it can remove up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, but I don’t have the means to verify this. It’s also important to note that this will only be effective on clear water as any colored liquids will prevent the UV-C light from penetrating it thoroughly.
You can check the temperature of your beverage at any time by tapping the touch control once. The lid’s LED will light up red when the liquid is above 140 degrees Fahrenheit, yellow when between 98 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit, and blue when below 98 degrees Fahrenheit.
The bottle will also remind you to drink every two hours by flashing a blue or yellow light (according to the temperature) every 2 hours. This is handy as I’m guilty of not drinking as often as I probably should, so it’s nice to have the bottle on my desk near my monitor where the LED will catch my eye when it flashes. The 2-hour timer resets every time you remove the lid or if the beverage is above 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
As noted above, I first thought the bottle was defective as I filled it with water and double-tapped the touch control on the lid, but the LED flashed red several times. I then found the note in the manual about leaving the lid off of the bottle for about 10 minutes to restore normal operation. I did this and it worked ever since.
The manufacturer states that a single charge will last up to a month if you only run the sanitation process once per day. The included charging cable is a Micro USB cable with a proprietary magnetic connector attached to the end. You’ll want to make sure not to lose this connector as you likely won’t find it available at your local store. It’s about $5 to purchase a replacement charging cable from NOERDEN’s website.
All functions are disabled while the lid is charging, so you can not run the sanitation process while the charger is connected. It takes about 2 hours to recharge the lid.
## Differences between the LIZ and the LARQ
I also have the LARQ water bottle which operates similarly: the lid contains a UV-C LED on the bottom of the lid that shines down on the water in the bottle. The LARQ sanitation process only runs for 1 minute normally (with an option to run for 3 minutes), but it also runs a short sanitization cycle every two hours to continually sanitize the water. The NOERDEN LIZ will flash to remind you to drink every 2 hours, but it does not automatically run a sanitization cycle.
The NOERDEN LIZ is convenient because it basically cleans itself if you only fill it with water. It can store other liquids, but the manufacturer recommends not storing sugary or acidic beverages for long periods of time as it can wear down the stainless steel. It has a proprietary charging connector, so make sure not to lose it, but a single charge can last up to a month so you don’t need to pack it for short trips.
The LIZ Smart Bottle from Noerden is a “smart” water bottle. From the outside it looks like a lot of modern dual-insulated water bottles. Mine came in a flat black and holds 16 ounces of liquid (a 12 ounce version is available). The finish of mine gives the bottle a good grip. It’s just under 10 inches tall and just under 3 inches wide at the base. It’s similar to other water bottles not only in it’s outside looks, but also in that it can keep hot liquids hot/warm for up to 12 hours, and cold liquid for around 24 hours.
The cap however, is where the difference is – inside of the bottom of the cap is a UV-C, LED bulb that per manufacturer’s claim, can help to sterilize the inside of the bottle (and/or clear liquids inside), to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses in the bottle. First, you use the proprietary charger which magnetically attaches to the cap to charge it (about two hours or so). A white ring will pulse on the top of the cap while charging. Once done, you press and hold the top to turn the power on, and then “tap” it twice to turn on the sterilization feature, which takes about 5 minutes. Once done, in theory, your bottle and/or clear liquid inside is pretty much germ free. You can press and hold the top again to turn the power off. They do note that this feature is not nearly as effective on darker liquids (coffee, etc), and they suggest you do not put milk in it at all (no reason given). Sodas are ok, but they suggest not doing it often or leaving them in it longer term. In other words, really, this is best used as a water bottle.
You can check the temperature of the liquid inside by tapping the cap once and then gently shaking the bottle so the liquid touches the cap inside – the cap will light up red if it’s at 140 (F), yellow if it’s in-between 98-140 (F), and blue if it’s below 98 (F). This seems to work pretty accurately, and the bottle did keep my hot tea water hot for many hours. Ice water still had ice in it the next morning. A side feature is that every two hours the cap will blink to remind you to hydrate, but unless you’re actually looking at the bottle, you’ll miss it. Noerden does have an app you can download, which is generally a generic fitness app that can be used for tracking fitness, hydration, etc. It does not connect to the bottle in any way however, and I found it a bit tedious in setting up and fairly basic once signed up. The bottle is best when using it as-is with the smart cap. Side-note, the bottle is dishwasher safe, but the cap should be hand washed.
Now, as far as the UV-C feature, the jury is out for me in this regard. I have UV-C test cards that when exposed to UV-C light, the word “Ultraviolet” will appear on the card in varying degrees of darkness depending on how strong the bulb is. I have used them to test other UV-C devices I own and they do work pretty well. I slid one into the LIZ bottle for a minute and turned on the UV-C cap. It did not show the “Ultraviolet” word at all. I put it back in and let it run the full 5 minutes and upon removal, you could barely (and really – BARELY) see the target word appear, so in terms of how that works, the UV-C light was seemingly pretty weak in intensity within the bottle. Again, my test cards are hardly laboratory test quality, but they do work and the test word appears much darker on other UV-C devices I’ve tried them on. Another issue is that when you run the UV-C cap and try to take it off, it turns the bulb off for safety reasons as you’re not supposed to expose your skin/eyes to UV-C light – understandable, but there’s no delay at all, it goes off before you can see if it’s on or not at all, so should the bulb actually not be on or working properly, you have no way of knowing if it’s even lighting up.
It’s a very good and attractive hot/cold bottle in terms of that part of it, but, I’m not convinced the UV-C bulb is very strong, and there’s just no way to determine if it’s even really on or not (or when it eventually burns out) due to the rapid shut-off feature when you remove the cap. I’m also very much not a fan of proprietary chargers when USB-C is becoming the norm today. I know they may have gone this route to make it more watertight on the outside, but you could easily just add a rubber cover to a USB-C charging port, too. At close to $80, you’re paying a lot just for the UV feature compared to a comparable standalone water bottle so for those reasons, I have a bit of a hard time recommending the LIZ bottle, to be honest.
The Noerden LIZ smart bottle, with UV disinfection, is a good choice for use at the office or gym. You can be sure that water from the tap or bottle filler is properly disinfected using the UV disinfection feature. The bottle fits well in the hand and has a slip resistant finish. The LED indicator on the top of the cap is clearly visible, and proved useful for checking water temperature. The bottle is well insulated and kept liquids cool for 18 plus hours.
I would not recommend this bottle for extended outdoor activities such as remote camping or extended hiking trips. There is no d-ring or anchor point integrated on the bottle to affix to a pack. This would also not be suitable for water disinfection in the field because of the water clarity requirements needed for proper UV disinfection.
The bottle arrived neatly packaged, but needed to be charged before use. A USB charging cable,proprietary charging clip, and user manual are included.
First, let's get the most important part out of the way: It's a good thermal bottle. It kept my beverages hot or cold for a good long while. No amount of additional tech should ignore this basic function.
As for the tech itself? Part of me thought it would be a bit of a gimmick, but I actually came to like the temperature sensor - particularly since you can't really tell how hot or cold the beverage is from the outside. I personally didn't find the hydration reminder useful. But regarding the UV sterilization? I...guess...it works...? I don't really have the tools to measure its effectiveness, but the cap made it clear it was going about its duties when I turned the function on.
So overall it's a good bottle and the charge lasts a good while. But be warned: Charging is done by plugging a micro-USB into a dongle that magnetically connects to the bottle. This dongle is rather small and easy to misplace. Don't lose that dongle!
A:AnswerThanks for the question AccidentallyCute (I'm sure it's not accidental though).
We don't recommend putting milk inside because milk curdles more easily than other beverages, which means there are lots of bacteria present, and the UV light may not fully penetrate the milk to kill all of the bacteria and viruses within.
As well as this, the milk can harden around the sides of your bottle and have the same issue. Except for milk, you can use your LIZ with any type of beverage with peace of mind - just remember to give it a rinse if you have any acidic/fizzy liquids inside!
A:AnswerThanks for the question Daydream.
The LIZ bottle is completely dishwasher safe. The lid, where the smart technology is, must be washed by hand under a tap (and never be fully submerged under water).
A:AnswerThank you for your question Baris.
As you know, LIZ uses UV light to sterilize 99.9% of viruses and odor-causing bacteria, just by tapping the lid.
When the UV process is ongoing, the lid of the bottle will flash white.
If the sterilization process is stopped or doesn't start (for example, if the lid is opened during the process, or the bottle has been overfilled) the lid will flash red to indicate the UV sterilization isn't active.
