I am not sure what to make out of this, but Nikon filed a patent for a “smart” water bottle that can communicate with a smart watch:

“When a user puts on a device having an intra-body communication function or a near field communication function and a liquid container that user users has a communication function, a total intake amount of the user can be recorded automatically even if a house cup is used, a cup at a workplace is used or a drink in bought.”
